Graffiti makes a statement in the Miniature Horse of the Year Championship

Leonie Wroe’s eye-catching Miniature, Scott Creek Monarch Red Graffiti, stole the show ahead of 15 other starters to win the Miniature Horse of the Year Championship at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) – a title he last claimed in 2015.


“He’s a real showman but a character too – he’ll do anything for a back scratch!” said Leonie. Graffiti, as he is known at home, is no stranger to HOYS; he finished first in his section in 2016 and 2014, including Reserve Champion in 2014, second in 2017 and Champion in 2015. This year, the stallion was joined in the ring by one of his offspring, Allstars Graffiti in the Spotlight, who finished seventh.


After standing Supreme Champion at the Royal International earlier this year, Graffiti now has both of the big championships under his belt. “He’ll continue to stand at stud,” said Leonie. “He’s only eight so has a lot of life left in him!”


Second place went to Nicola Nelson and Charlotte Leonard’s, spotted filly, Karosel Alamo’s Perdita. Charlotte is also a regular at HOYS having taken the runner-up spot three times previously with other Miniatures.
