Dafné was bought for Pierre, Lyn’s stepson. He was a really super eventing pony, and Pierre successfully competed him in jumping and dressage, but mainly eventing. When Pierre grew out of him, he was passed on to several other Belle Ferme riders who were happy to have such an experienced pony to learn on.
His name for a start! One would think Dafné would be a mare, but he wasn’t, he was a gelding. He could be very difficult to catch – and still can be! He was very wary of strange people going into his stable, and it was really panic time if the vet had to see him!
