Manny Named Omega Alpha Canadian Event Horse of the Month
Ottawa, ON, Canada
Co-owned by Diana Burnett and John & Nadia Lennox, the nine-year-old bay Thoroughbred cross gelding placed fifth in the CIC 3* division at the Maui Jim Horse Trials CIC 3*, held July 9-12, 2009, in Wayne, Illinois, USA.
Sitting in third place after dressage on a score of 41.8 Burnett and Manny added 28.4 cross country time penalties over Ritch Temple's cross country course dropping them to fifth place which they maintained in the jumping round where they kept the rails up but added four time faults. They completed the competition on a score of 78.2.
"Overall I am thrilled with how Manny has progressed last year and this year," said Burnett who was using the competition as a preparation for the CCI 4* Land Rover Burghley Three Day Event in the UK this September. "I feel really lucky to have a really great relationship with such an amazing athlete."
"He was always a very funny horse," said John Lennox, who along with his wife, Nadia, bred and raised Manny. "Diana has done a fantastic job brining him along to his full potential."
