We’re wishing the absolutely adorable and highly respected Cevo Itot du Chateau a very happy 17th Birthday today. This remarkable little horse has captured the hearts of those around the world for his tremendous scope and larger-than-life spirit. Known well amongst the international riding community, Itot du Chateau has been at the top of his game, winning two back-to-back GCT seasons not to mention enjoying two Olympic appearances, a World Equestrian Games appearance, two World Cup Finals and a World Cup win in Geneva only a few months ago.

Edwina and Itot finished as the 8th best combination in International jumping last year and look to be as strong as ever coming into 2013. Itot celebrated his birthday at the stables today with Edwina along with her close team Caroline Martin and Hymne Rydant, who presented the pint-sized superstar with a basket of goodies.

17 year young , with plenty more wins ahead, we’re wishing the adorable Itot a very happy birthday today!!
