Fernhill Now or Never

2003, bay gelding, un-known breeding.

Hugo was a once in a lifetime horse and real part of the family here at Meridianway Stud.

We very sadly had to say goodbye to him in the spring of 2020 when wear and tear caught up with him and he deteriorated rapidly.

Purchased as a 5YO from Carol Gee, Kate & Hugo rose through the ranks together and learnt so much. He gave Kate her first appearance for Team GB in former 2* Championships. They then went onto three 5* completions, with the highlight being Badminton in 2018, where they finished as best GB first-timers and put in a fantastic cross country round. He was a jumping machine and gave us many wonderful rounds at the very highest level, along with picking up top placings throughout his career.
