Rider: LAURA COLLETT
Breeding: Christ x Rosenrot
Syndicate Period: 1st January 2021 to 30th November 2021
Camouflage (aka 'Rufus') is an athletic 6-year-old gelding sourced by Laura specifically for the Event Horse Owners Syndicate. Purchased from Peter Thompson’s yard in northern Germany, Laura has achieved great success with horses originating from Peter with both London 52 and Mr Bass having started their journey with him before going on to compete at the highest level.
Camouflage arrived from Germany at the beginning of December and is being settled in at Laura’s Gloucestershire base where they will establish their partnership before heading out to gain valuable experience at local competitions during the winter. During the purchasing process he stood out to Laura for his excellent mental attitude, athletic jump and impressive paces. Having only been jumped under a saddle a handful of times, he has plenty to learn but oozes raw ability.
His Sire Christ is an exceptionally beautiful stallion, with talent for dressage and jumping. His breeder, Heinrich Ramsbrock, said, "In all these years I have rarely seen a horse with the first-class double talent he has. And that is exactly what makes him so special. There certainly aren't many like him around." He is an outstanding mover who also demonstrates excellent technique over a fence.
