Share Option, or ‘Whitey’ as all his friends call him, is a 2003 Irish Sport Horse Lillian bought when he was five. He had been under saddle for three months but has proved to be uncomplicated to train, always willing and eager to jump and run. Lillian never asked him a question he did not try and answer.
Whitey’s career has been one of steady success as Lillian took him from Beginner Novice through Advanced, culminating with a 6th place finish at the Jersey Fresh CCI 3*, spring 2010. Whitey has a great personality and has been Lillian’s most successful partnership to date. At the beginning of the 2010 Fall season Whitey sustained an injury, but after spectacular rehabilitation by Lizzie Olmstead at LCO Eventing, Whitey has come back very strong, In 2013 he completed the Jersey Fresh CCI*** in 4th place and the Fair Hill International CCI*** in 10th place. He went to Kentucky in 2015 and completed the Rolex CCI****. He had a great go at Rolex CCI**** in 2016, delivering one of the 6 double clear showjump rounds, and finished in 15th place at the 2017 Rolex. He is a real winner!
Barnaby came to Lillian as a 6-year-old Irish horse by Guy Cavalier out of Lady Tanjour. When Lillian bought him in Ireland, he had not done any eventing, but she competed him in both Ireland and England at the training level. She also did a significant amount of show-jumping with him, competing successfully in 1.15m classes. Lillian brought him back to the US and trained him through the levels, and in 2016 Barnaby completed the Rolex CCI****. In 2017 Barnaby not only completed the Rolex 4* but he finished in 13th place!
Oliver is also owned by Debby Greenspan and her daughter Peri. He was bought for Peri and she successfully trained him to the Prelim level. Once Peri entered law school, Oliver became a member of Lillian’s competition string. He is competing successfully at the Intermediate level with big plans for the future!
