Grey Arab Stallion

Lone Tornado was given to Hannah Skepper by her mother, Nancy Backhouse, when he was a yearling. At four years he started competing and by the time he was six he had won numerous pony club one day events, hunter trials, dressage and show jumping competitions. He also was placed in hand and under saddle at County Level.

He was then competed under BSJA Junior rules and won six consequtive foxhunters and over £200 in prize money. He qualified for the Newcomers and Foxhunter regionals two years on the trot and was competed by both Jane, Johnny and Georgina Skepper.
