By Ephebe For Ever out of Narenca B, Alby amassed 1365 British Eventing points in his career. He took Ros round her first five-star, Burghley, in 2015 and in 2017 the pair tackled their first Badminton, finishing in fifth place and best of the Brits. This result propelled them on to the British Senior Team, winning team gold and finishing fifth individually at the European Championships in Strzegom.
The following year Alby and Ros placed third at Badminton, booking their place on the flight to the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, USA. An immaculate dressage score completion resulted in both a team gold medal and the individual title of World Champions. He was put to sleep after sustaining a career-ending injury in the summer of 2022.
“There are no words for the love and respect that I have for Alby,” said Ros. “Time after time he showed his generosity, kindness and love of our sport. He played a huge part in building my career, and will be missed by many.” Co-owner Caroline Moore, who started Alby’s competitive career, described him as, “the horse of a lifetime. The most generous and brave horse that I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.” British Equestrian eventing performance manager, Richard Waygood, also paid tribute to Alby: “The partnership Ros and he shared is one of the greatest the sport has enjoyed. Together they gave so much to eventing and British teams. Alby will be missed, but will hold a place among the legends of our sport.”
