About

10 yo Chestnut IRH Owned by the Phoenix Syndicate "This new syndication has been possible by their incredible generosity. When I realized that we might actually be able to pull a group together I began to think of horses that could potentially live up to the standard of the incredible horses we lost. Ballingowan Pizazz (aka Mango) was at the top of the list. Obviously, I knew him very well from watching him at the Pan American Games, but because he was not on the market and my tremendous respect for Shannon it was a very difficult decision to even ask if he could be for sale. I was very surprised when Shannon wrote to me and said that she would consider selling him, and honestly I was honored that she considered me worthy of such an amazing horse. Shannon is one of the best and most positive people I know and, while I am obviously thrilled to have the opportunity to ride Mango, I am also sad that Shannon is not able to continue his career. They were a wonderful partnership to watch, and I will do everything I can to fulfill her faith in me with Mango to realize his potential. I am also very grateful for the people who have stepped up to help me, and I hope we can round out this syndication in the coming months." - Michael Pollard

Thank you to the Phoenix Syndicate which owns Ballingowan Pizazz and Cheyenne Blue. The goal of Pollard Eventing is to have four horses in contention for the 2014 World Equestrian Games. The recent loss of three of its top horses has meant a refocus to stay committed to that goal. Consequently, Pollard Eventing is offering two syndication options with the aim of replacing its equine talent. To widen the appeal and in an effort to spread risk, Pollard Eventing will be pairing one of its rising stars, at its own expense, with a horse purchased with syndicate buy-in funds. This means that new syndicate members would be able to buy in to two separate horses for the price of one. Additionally, Pollard Eventing will be keeping the maintenance cost per share at a level that covers only competition and insurance expenses. There are currently three open shares and if you would like to speak to a syndicate owner we will be happy to put you in touch.
