'Congo' was bred in Australia and trialed once at Doomben Racecourse with champion jockey Chris Munce, winning this trial by an impressive two length margin. He was then exported to Hong Kong, and renamed ‘Compulsory’. He trialed then three times at Sha Tin Racecourse, but never raced due to injury. Congo returned to Australia where he went back into training, however it was ultimately decided to retire him from racing permanently.

After a long spell in the beautiful Aquis Farm spelling paddocks, he began his re-training with Aquis Farm re-trainer Ruby Chatterton in September 2016. Congo now has a basic education established in flat work/dressage, show jumping, cross country, and has had plenty of time out trail riding on the roads, bush and at the beach.

Congo’s first public appearance was the 2017 Magic Millions Barrier Draw, where he was used in a beach galloping display at Surfers Paradise in front of thousands of people with Sydney jockey Tye Angland. His versatility was put on display when he stood nice and quietly while Tye did acrobatics on his back while waiting to start the gallop! Tye also put his young daughter on Congo after they were finished.

Congo followed up his very successful day at the barrier draw, with a very successful first competition two weeks later at the Tamborine Equestrian Group Express Eventing Day. Competing in the 60cm & 80cm Classes comprising of Show Jumping & Cross Country, Congo placed second in a large field of 50 horses. He was also very relaxed at the competition to wait for his turn and is no trouble on the ground whatsoever.

Congo is a great all-rounder and is best suited to a experienced rider to continue his training.
