2012 KWPN GELDING VIVALDI x FIDERMARK x FERRO BRED IN THE NETHERLANDS BY STOETERIJ SOLLENBURG
Claire discovered Harrold S on her December 2016 European shopping trip and purchased him as her next competition horse after her Grand Prix horse, Calimar, was retired. Members of the USEF Development Program, the pair has had several very successful seasons in competition, earning several USDF Horse of the Year titles and countless high-point champion awards. They are currently winning together at the Small Tour level.
Harrold made his international debut in November 2020 at the Desert Dressage 1 & 2 CDI-W's, sweeping the 3* Small Tour division both weekends with scores to 75.9% after making his national Intermediaire I debut several weeks prior, which he won on a 78.9%. The pair was invited to the August's USEF Developing Prix St. Georges National Championship on their qualifying score of 73.9%, but declined the invitation due to concerns over COVID-19.
In 2019, Harrold made his Fourth Level debut, earning scores to 77% and high point champion titles at every competition through the season in Southern California. He won the USDF Fourth Level Horse of the Year Champion title with a median score of 75.358%.
In 2018, Harrold and Claire were first invited to the USEF Development Program after participating in the USEF Development Training and Evaluation Session in May with Debbie McDonald and Lilo Fore. In October, the pair won the Foreign Rider Champion Title at the Pacific Regional Dressage Championships in Vancouver, British Columbia, with scores to 75%.
In their first year in competition, Harrold and Claire earned 9 marks over 80% at Training and First Levels, and finished the season as the Northwest Series 4/5-Year-Old Materiale Grand Champions. Harrold also won the 2017 USDF Horse of the Year titles at Training Level and Materiale with median scores over 82%, in addition to finishing as Reserve Champion at First Level with a median score over 79%.
Claire is looking forward to a very exciting future in competition with this special horse.
