Kristina and Miners Frolic (Henry) and been selected for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics; they competed at Bramham, to finish 15th with a faultless XC round. Kristina had this to say about her selection:
“I’m totally thrilled! After the horse’s illness last year this is a dream come true. With his past form Miner’s Frolic has proved he can do it but he nearly died of colitis 12 months ago so to come back to this level shows he’s a real fighter – that’s what pulled him through. He’s gone really well this season so I’m very excited to get the opportunity to take him to London.
I’ve had him since he was four years old, he’s kind and talented and we have a great partnership. Greenwich will be challenging but he’s a well bred horse, fast cross country but adjustable and polite which is important for those hills!”
