Moo was bred by Matt using the sire Regardez Moi who belongs to his elder brother Heath. Regardez Moi (by the legendary sire Rubinstein) is now competing at Grand Prix level with Heath in Australia. Heath has been National Grand Prix Champion with Regardez Moi and represented Australia at the 2010 World Cup Dressage final in Las Vegas.

Matt bought Moo's mother, Pharoah's Mistress (Misty), to sell on as he hoped this would be straightforward owing to her great Master Spiritus bloodline. But Misty injured herself, and at the same time this occurred, Matt was breaking in Regardez Moi for his brother Heath. Matt was so impressed with Regardez Moi's athleticism over a fence, that he did a deal with Heath and covered Misty with Regardez Moi. This liason resulted in Moo being born in 2000.

Moo oozes talent combining wonderful paces with a super jump.

She is very affectionate and adores attention.

She upgraded to Advanced as a 7yo by winning three Intermediate/OI events in succession! She came fourth at her first advanced run at Aston-Le-Walls in 2010.

Moo is settling into her International 3* competitions but little injuries have frustrated a fluent consistent competition schedule.

Her plans this year is to consolidate advanced and 3* experience culminating in competing in the CCI3* event at Blenhiem (Oxfordshire) in September.
