Two spotty brothers owned by Mereworth show producer Virginia Rider and ridden and handled by Virginia's Team Tuscan showing team, made history this weekend at the Appaloosa National Championships run by ApHUK at Moreton Morell, Warwickshire.
Bred by the Tuscany Sands Stud in Herne Bay, Tuscany Adonis and Tuscany Kosmos, took the top honours against 80 other competitors to be Supreme Ridden Champion and Reserve Champion. It was the eight-year-old Adonis's first show, whilst his brother seven-year-old Tuscany Kosmos has been the reigning champion since 2014.
Despite tough competition the two geldings won all 15 of their classes at the two-day show and only went against each other in the championships. Aside from the show-ring Tuscany Kosmos won the dressage and jumping meaning he won the overall Champion of the show.
