Catrin was very lightly shown as a youngster with wins at Royal Windsor & NPS Summer Championship Show. She was lightly backed as a 4 year old and then turned away to breed a foal.

As a 7 year old Catrin was lightly shown under saddle  winning and being placed in both NPS & Ponies UK classes. She also showed a real aptitude for jumping. However due to a lack of rider her ridden education has not been pursued.

Her only progeny to date is:

Thornberry Sioned (2009) by Thornberry Ptarmigan - unshown
