Peter Charles' Olympic partner Murka's Vindicat W has been sold to the talented American rider Jessica Springsteen. The ten year old KWPN gelding has developed to be a top horse under Peter and in August they finished off their great partnership by winning Olympic Team Gold on home soil in London. Peter has put out the following statement on his Facebook page;
"Vinnie is one of the best horses I have ever ridden, so the decision to move him on has not come lightly. He produced an outstanding performance to secure Team Gold for Britain for the first time in 60 years, and I will never forget how that felt and how unbelievably proud he made me and my team feel. In order to invest in a string of young horses for Rio, we have had to make the decision to allow him to move to another rider. He will now be ridden by his new owner Jessica Springsteen for the USA. I wish Jessica the best of luck with him and I am sure he will make her proud too."
