ABOUT BORIS


 

16.1hh Grey Gelding born in 1994

Boris started his initial training at the age of 4 years. He passed his training at Imber Court with flying colours and was described by his trainer as excellent from day one. Boris was fearless and quickly selected to take part in all the Royal Escorts, however, he was so strong that only a handful of officers could ride him. In 2014, Boris was awarded the PDSA Award for his role in the London Riots where his rider described him as “as brave as they come with a lovely calm nature and willingness to work”. We are honoured to retire this horse after all of his years serving our country.
