French Horses Are a Common Thread for Katie Dinan

22 March 2018

It is no coincidence that Katie Dinan's past, present and future can be linked to Selle Francis horses. Six years ago, she made her name in the sport with Nougat Du Vallet by Sherif D'Elle x Saphir D'Elle, a compact chestnut gelding who took her to three appearances at the FEI World Cup Final, victory in the Aga Khan at the Dublin Horse Show, and many top finishes around the world.

Now, at age 17, Nougat Du Vallet has returned to jumping the grand prix level with Dinan after extended time out of the sport.
