won Bovington Pre-novice on his second outing, followed by a win at Novice level on his next
outing at Tidworth. His next run saw him finish 12th at the CIC* at Mattingley having led after
cross-country and dressage stages. He finished the season in convincing style by winning Aldon
2 day Event by 11 points clear of his nearest rival. He started the 2003 season with 19 points
and notched up a win at Tweseldown Novice, followed by three in a row at Intermediate –
Somereley Park, Longleat, and Wilton. Catherston Liberator has 66 points making him advanced
in less than one and a half seasons and causing Horse & Hound to describe him as 'one of the
most exciting event prospects this season'. Catherston Liberator suffered a slight injury after
Wilton and the decision was made to retire him from Horse Trials as he had proved his worth.
However he continued to compete in dressage, teaching several young riders the ropes and
has now retried to Devon where stands at Langaller Farm in Bovey Tracey.
