Horus Du Bois

Horus is Team Weber’s newest addition, however he is not new to the sport of Combined Driving. Horus was acquired by us to try to create more depth in our string for the lead in the marathon and cones, and he has done just that. This clever and fast French trotter was purchased from the Dutch driver Hans Heus who used him to lead his way onto the squad for the World Championships in Beesd this past summer. Heus often used him in all 3 phases in the lead which has brought Horus the experience and drivability that team Weber was searching for. Originally identified as a star for team Weber by friend and colleague Koos de Ronde, team Weber is hopeful that the addition of this clever leader will compliment the already dominant dressage team through adding more high-end speed and drivability to both the marathon and cones team. Who knows with his nice top line and expressive trot with a little knee movement team Weber might also be able to develop him in to a dressage star like the others in the string? Horus is a very kind and willing horse that not only exhibits the speed to lead the way on marathon day he also has a kind eye that makes him a favorite of those in the stable.
