“Ruler” is a 2007 OTTB by Roman Ruler. He had already been in Buck Davidson’s program for a year when Katy began to ride him during her first months as a working student. Although she initially purchased him as a sales project, Katy quickly came to realize Ruler’s potential for the upper levels and decided to keep him. After starting his first season of competition at the Novice level, Ruler developed quickly, finishing the same year with a CCI* completion and 1st Place TIP award at the Virginia Horse Trials. Katy and Ruler also had a great start to the 2015 season, finishing well in Ruler’s first Intermediate at Full Gallop Farm.
Unfortunately,injury prevented Ruler from continuing his Upper Level eventing career, however he is now pursuing a dressage career in Oregon with Lisa Updike. Good luck to Lisa and Ruler!
