UNH Spring Horse Trials 2000




Del View Easter Moro - that was his name. He was a little 14 hand Morgan gelding who introduced me to eventing. At 24 years old, he was still a little spit fire. I'll never forget that XC run. This was before the days when one was introduced at Beginner Novice. Novice was the lowest level and 2'11" was where you began. So Novice we went.

Me: 5'8"
Moro: 14 hands

Yup, he was short, but man could he JUMP! :) We ended up placing 7th in a field of 14 or so. We were first after dressage, but time penalties killed us on XC. We jumped double clear. There are days when I miss riding a horse like this....

Here are some photos.

















I wish I knew what became of him. He was on lease to UNH for use in their equine program and a woman with the last name of Schultis owned him. He was recorded with the USEA....I'll have to look him up again. I doubt he'd be alive now...he'd be 34 or 35 if he were!

I will never forget that little black Morgan. Moro.
