Severely burned in his barn fire at 5 YO, he had been saved miraculously but had to stop competition for a while. Coming back to the horse shows in 2009, Okavango showed that his jumping style is still excellent. The 7 YO classes he did at the end of the 2009 confirmed his great potential. In 2010, despite his breathing troubles due to the fire, he is placed 1st of the Pro2 GP of Bayeux, 4th of the Pro2 GP of Cabourg, 7th of the Pro2 GP of Auvers. In 2011, he is placed 2nd of the Pro2 GP of Cabourg. In 2012 : 6th GP Pro2 Bayeux, 3rd GP Pro2 Villedieu, ... In 2013 : 2nd of Brecey GP135, 8th Brecey GP130, ...
Imagine the sport career he could have made without this accident and you won't hesitate anylore to use him as a stallion !
