As we enter 2018 we're excited to share our first Spotlight of the year.
Welcome Kasey and FVF Figaro and THANK YOU for sharing your story with us.
Almost 1 year ago, I met the love of my life, Figgy. As soon as I saw him, I knew he was the horse for me. He was friendly and sweet, and yawned twice before I put his bit in (which he still does today), which we took as a good sign. Sure enough, after the first ride, I fell in love.
My name is Kasey Lathangue, I am 16 years old, and I live in BC, Canada. I have been riding for five years now, and have leased a few horses, but I have never made quite a connection like I have with Figgy.
FVF Figaro, or Figgy, is a 15’3hh black Canadian WB gelding out of Gervantus II. He has had a successful past in the hunter ring, showing up and down British Columbia. and Thermal, California, USA, winning Champion and Reserve all over.
When we got him, we started out as hunter jumpers, but lately we have noticed his huge potential in the dressage ring, so we made the switch. He has gorgeous movement and catches everyones eyes in the show ring. Figgy looks just like a smaller, daintier version of his dad.
Not only is he an awesome athlete, but he is my best friend on the ground, always nickering when I come to fetch him from the field, or following me around just because. He has stolen my heart and many others with his loving temperament, and he’s received lots of pears for it, they’re his favourite :)
Figgy and I will be showing first level dressage at local shows, and possibly Thunderbird this coming season, and I couldn’t be more excited to get started.
