“Picasso”, barn name Casey, belonged to Michael T Sharp of Belvoir Farm.  He was shown in the late 1990s and early 2000s throughout Virginia prior to being moved to Aiken, SC.  In 2014, he returned to Virginia and I was fortunate enough to show him for one final year before retiring him on the farm.  Mike’s favorite description of this horse was that he was “such a professional”, and this was absolutely true.  The moment you stepped foot in the ring, Casey was all business, jumping each jump nearly identically, making him pretty tough to beat!

Casey is a 1993 gelding by Weshaam, a hunter producing stallion.  He is a funny,  quirky guy to have around the farm!

Although Casey COULD leave the ground nice and long, it didn’t always mean he WOULD! We were faced with VERY long lines in the classic, and my intention was to jump into the line strong and continue so that he would get down the line. He had other ideas! Distances were always the greatest challenge on this guy! Here he is at 21 years of age, in our last big class.
