Fibonacci was born on the 29th of May 2005. He was originally named Fendi, which was changed into his current name when he came to Meredith in the spring of 2014.

Fibonacci was bred in Sweden by Tina Petersson-Lind. He is by For Feeling, out of the mare Tarusa by Corland.

In the beginning of his international career, Sweden's Lisen Bratt Fredricson competed him before her stable jockey Stephanie Holmen took over the reins and brought him up to 1.50 level.

In the spring of 2014, after catching everybody's eye at the Saut Hermès in Paris and then in Arezzo, he was sold to Meredith's sponsors Artemis Equestrian Farm.

From there on, Fibonacci quickly developed into Meredith's top horse.

In Aachen last year, Fibonacci showed his potential as he was more or less flying over the jumps making the head lines with his abilities.

This year, Meredith and 'Nacho' - which is Fibonacci's stable name - returned to Aachen, and competed at their first championship together claiming team silver for Germany.

This year the two won the five-star Suncast Grand Prix in Wellington, which was their first big Grand Prix win together. Afterwards, Meredith said; "He is an amazing jumper. I think he won the high jump award over most of the fences in the course tonight. It can often be difficult to sit on as a rider, but I have been practicing that as well. He is different, but he is wonderful."

"He is a delight to ride and to have; he is a very sensitive horse, but has incredible ability and is careful and scopey – and has a fantastic mind," Meredith has said of the amazing white gelding.
