Wonderful life for former 3 Star eventer


Winner at Puhinui Horse Trials 2013 – with Matthew Grayling.

Henton Executive (Escudo I/Distelfink) has found a new and happy life in the hands of Taupo Huntsman Harvey Wilson as the Huntsman’s lead horse.

Henton Executive was bred by Dave and Bridget Sutton and during his eventing career he was owned by the Henton Executive syndicate. His best performance came in 2013 with rider Matthew Grayling when they won the 3 Star event at Puhinui Horse Trials.

A small injury put paid to furthering his list of successes and it was at this stage that the Syndicate gifted him to Harvey and the Hunt.

Harvey’s wife Lisa has a background in showing so Bridget says the horse is always turned out immaculately at the start of each hunt. The Harvey’s seven year old daughter is also a lucky girl who gets to ride him at home.


Coming home – after a great day in the field on a typical Taupo winter’s day.

Happy Life after Eventing Career
