This horse began our foray into ownership in the sport of eventing. He did his first event in July of 2015, and since then he has enjoyed multiple wins and top placings including a top 10 finish in his first CCI5* at Luhmuhlen in 2018, and a top 15 finish in his first Burghley CCI5* in 2019. Niro is proving to be an exceptional international talent with a huge heart and a true love for eventing, and we hope that he will get the chance to represent Team USA at the championship level in the near future! Most recently he won the CCI4*-S at Great Meadow International and the CCI4*-S at Plantation Field International. (Owned by Ocala Horse Properties)
