Chances Are, aka William, is a star in the making. William became a member of the Five Ring team in late 2008 by chance (pun intended), when his two week visit ended up being a permanent move. William came from a nearby jumper farm, where he was one of many competition horses. Although he had undeniable scope (at the start of his eventing career he was known to jump unsuspecting riders out of the tack without the blink of an eye *cough, Kinsey Lux*), the horses greatly outweighed the riders at his former home and there simply was not enough time to develop him into the horse he was capable of becoming. Lucky for William, Kyle Carter saw the twinkle of an event horse in him, and took him on with hopes of one day competing him internationally. In his three years at Five Ring, William has proven Kyle`s initial assessment correct: he will be an exceptional event horse, without a doubt capable of holding his own at the upper levels. In fact, he has already become an accomplished FEI horse, placing top 5 at his first CCI* this past spring. William is a striking mover, with the heart for cross country and the scope for show jumping. Keep your eyes out for William in the coming years, we are confident that he will continue to impress.

Sayyida, aka Xena, is the newest equine member of Five Ring Stable, becoming part of the team in December 2010. Xena is a pleasure to have around the farm, with a laid back attitude and fun personality. Xena recently began her eventing career at Novice level, and at only 5 years old, this mare`s elegant build, fancy movement, and consistently willing attitude have convinced us that she has a very bright future ahead of her.
