MY ERNIE (formerly Edento) owned by the rider is a 13-year-old Dutch-bred (KWPN registered) gelding. He is jumping bred being by the famous jumping sire CARDENTO out of a mare by CANTOS. He was acquired by Helen as a 3-year-old originally to hunt and he field mastered for the Surrey Union before taking up eventing at the age of 10. At the end of his second season he competed in the CCI3*L at Osberton and finished his third season last year being placed 6th in the CCI at Blenheim.
