16.1 hands high, Warmblood/Thoroughbred, foaled 1992.
Previous Owners: Peter O’Connell, Kathy Ward, Karen and Stuart Tinney
Ava – nee “Belcam Aava” – was sent to the Tinneys as a three year old, for three months of intensive training, to help kick-start her dressage career with then owner Kathy Ward.
However, her strong will meant her stay with the Tinneys was extended six months then nine…… and eventually a 1/2 share was given to the Tinneys to see if eventing was her forte rather than dressage. Luckily for her it was!.
Her career highlights are impressive. In 2000, she went into the Australia Team camp prior to the Olympics. Still only 8 years old, Ava came 16th for Australia at WEG in Jerez and was sold to Italy in 2002.
