The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair starts today in Toronto and we are proud to announce that MMSC Graduate True Simon and his owner/rider Alicia Burberry will be competing! Alicia and Simon, showing under the name “Splash of Class”, had a unique connection from the moment they met in 2016, and we have thoroughly enjoyed watching them develop as a team since then. The duo qualified for the Junior Thoroughbred division, open to horses under the age of eight, which includes a model class and a flat class to be held on November 10.
“This year was our first year showing on the Trillium circuit,” says Alicia. “I went in the show season expecting a learning experience but Simon has pinned in almost every show/class. He makes me so happy and proud with how far we've come as a team and I'm thankful to have him. He makes me smile everyday.”
The Royal is the largest equestrian event in Canada, with an expected 300,000 people in attendance, and we are honored to have #TeamMMSC represented at this prestigious event by such talented young athletes. Congratulations to Alicia and Simon on this tremendous accomplishment and best of luck next week!
