Welcoming Fernhill Dutch Design and Fernhill Wishes to Team Slezak

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of two new horses to the Karl Slezak Eventing team. Fernhill Dutch Design by Vaillant and Fernhill Wishes by Chacoa were generously purchased for Karl by Team Slezak supporter, Kirk Hoppner. Both horses will begin their journey to North America this December from their current home at Fernhill Sport Horses in Kilkenny, Ireland.

Fernhill Dutch Design a.k.a. DD is a 5 year old KWPN gelding that has competed up to training level as an eventer and up to 1.20m as a show jumper. Fernhill Wishes a.k.a. Choc is a 4 year old Irish Sport Horse gelding that has competed up to 1.10m in the show jump ring.  Each of these horses shows incredible potential for the future with their stunning flat work, incredible jump and strong work ethic.  We couldn’t be more excited for what their future holds.

DD and Choc will begin their trip to North America this week and we are eagerly awaiting their safe arrival at our winter training facility, Spruce Stables South in Ocala, FL. “I am incredibly lucky to have such a supportive and enthusiastic owner in Kirk Hoppner and can’t wait to begin developing what I know will be successful, long term partnerships with both of these horses as they embark on their eventing careers”, says Karl.

Stay tuned for more updates on their safe arrival and progress in the coming weeks.
