This outstanding horse is bred from classical lines with a thoroughbred sire who is tough, sound and raced for 8 years, out of a Grade B mare who has proved herself as an outstanding showjumper. This beautiful horse has really shown the power and athletic ability he possesses. He is a very good looking horse standing on beautiful limbs with hard flat bone. He has short cannon bones and strong active hocks set well under him, a lovely head well set on to a strong well-arched neck with good shoulders. Catherston Liberator competed up to advanced level dressage gaining over 435 points including being awarded Best Young Dressage Stallion by his own winnings 2 years in a row by the Supporters of British Breeding. Catherston Liberator, like his mother, has always shown a talent for jumping. He has won £346 BSJA in very few outings including 2nd in a Grade C when partnered by young rider Lee Williams. In the winter of 2001 he qualified for Hickstead and the Finals of the BSJA Winter Novice Championships with event rider Marcus Reid In 2002 Catherston Liberator turned his talents to Horse Trials and he has made quite an impression. He won Bovington Pre-novice on his second outing, followed by a win at Novice level on his next outing at Tidworth. His next run saw him finish 12th at the CIC* at Mattingley having led after cross-country and dressage stages. He finished the season in convincing style by winning Aldon 2 day Event by 11 points clear of his nearest rival. He started the 2003 season with 19 points and notched up a win at Tweseldown Novice, followed by three in a row at Intermediate ? Somereley Park, Longleat, and Wilton. Catherston Liberatorhas 66 points making him advanced in less than one and a half seasons and causing Horse & Hound to describe him as 'one of the most exciting event prospects this season'. Catherston Liberator suffered a slight injury after Wilton and the decision was made to retire him from Horse Trials as he had proved his worth. However he continued to compete in dressage, teaching several young riders the ropes and has retired to Devon where he stood at Lanagller farm in Bovey Tracey for 5 years. He has now returnd to stand at Catherston and being in such good form, he was re-registered with British Dressage. Showing Jennie?s granddaughter how to ride the Advanced Medium Junior test has been his next job at the ripe age of 21 years which he is thoroughly enjoying. He won the Veterans Class at the National Hunter Show 2013 with Jennie and a combined age of 90!.
