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. The pair's first outing together was at the Charlotte Dujardin Masterclass in Monroe, Washington, in May 2017, and they were also selected to ride in the USEF Young Horse Training Session with Christine Traurig in Sherwood, Oregon a few months later.
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%.
In 2018, Harrold and Claire were 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%.
This year, Harrold made his Fourth Level debut, earning scores to 77% and high point champion titles at every competition this season in Southern California.
Claire is looking forward to a very exciting future in competition with this special horse.
