Katharina Offel’s Grand Prix horse Vita 24 has been sold to the States, and her new rider will be Todd Minikus.

The 11-year-old Carinjo-daughter has been competed by Offel since September 2015, jumping up to 4* Grand Prix level. Before this, Vita 24 had Gert-Jan Bruggink in the saddle. Now, Vita 24 has been sold to Two Swans Farm and in-form Todd Minikus strengthens his team of horses with this talented mare.

“Vita is a horse with a lot of quality and has everything needed to jump the biggest classes. I would of course have wished to keep her for a bit longer as she developed so well, but she came to me to sell - it just went a bit faster than I expected. I wish Todd the best of luck with her, and hope to see him and Vita very successful together. I would also like to thank Gert-Jan for giving me the chance to ride her, it was a lot of fun,” Offel writes on her website.

Last year, Offel also sold her two top horse B Once Z and Charlie to the US.
