Wibo was imported from the Netherlands as a standard riding horse but when Lizzie got him he was in very poor condition and had not been doing much work. Lizzie has put a lot of effort in to improving his condition and has brought his ridden work on a long way. Due to several years of being ridden incorrectly he was difficult to retrain but he has a good work ethic and so has successfully learnt dressage up to medium level. Improving his flat work has also lead to huge improvements in his showjumping ability.
Wibo has competed successfully in dressage and showjumping, but his preferred discipline is cross country and he also loves hunting. He has achieved many placings in hunter trials, working hunter, team chasing and local hunt relays and regularly hunts with the Wilton throughout the season.
