Australian Jumping Horses of 2018 – Finch Farm Cadel
Scoring points at all five of the World Cup Qualifier competitions they entered this year, and in particular taking the win at Tamworth – Kate Hinschen and Finch Farm Cadel have had a wonderful 2018. Currently third in the Australian League World Cup Qualifying Series. Other significant results this year included a very respectable seventh place in the Australian Senior Championships and also taking the win as part of Team NSW. Bred by David Finch at Finch Farm, it seems like Finch Farm Cadel is one of those rare ‘easy’ performance horses. See below for some more information on this lovely gelding provided by Kate Hinschen.
