Ceb was started under saddle as a 4 year old in 2000, with the expert help of Valerie Everson at Rocking Horse Stable. After less than a dozen rides he was cantering, jumping tiny cross rails and hacking. After an extended 8 month holiday due to rider university commitments, Ceb started work again in the spring of 2001.
