Meet contestant #6 of the Young Event Horse Challenge!
Ali Zeitlin hails from right here in Georgetown KY. Ali began eventing at CEO when she was just 12 years old, and now at 19 has progressed through the Preliminary level with her CEO sales horse, Spring Loaded. She has just successfully completed her freshman year at USC and returns for the summer to play our little game!
Ali has drawn Night Out, aka Audi. Audi is a bay Trakehner/TB cross by our stallion Nightfall (trakehner by the olympic event horse Windfall, out of Intermediate level event horse Hail to the Chief). Audi’s dam is Under the Influence, a gray TB we purchased off the track, retrained through the novice level, and sold to a young rider. Audi has the classic trakehner head and big, solid features. We loved eventing both sire and dam, so this is a much desired cross for us!
