Hi, my name is Pumbaa Goess-Saurau…welcome to my website!
Now to all of you who are wondering about my name (and I can’t imagine that there are many who aren’t), please allow me to explain; my mother has a very ‘advanced’ sense of humor and when I was a baby and my first teeth came through she thought they looked like tusks…like Pumbaa’s in The Lion King! It isn’t actually my real name though (that would be Franziska), just a nickname.
Anyway, more importantly, I will tell you a bit about my eventing career so far. My journey really began in 2009 when we bought Killacoran Blue (or Toddy, to his friends). He taught me everything…and I genuinely mean everything! Our partnership lasted 5 years, during which time I represented Great Britain at the Pony European Championships twice (2011 and 2013), finishing 14th and 12th respectively.
This year I'm taking some time out before going to University in September so I'm riding full time. With 5 exciting rides to play with I'm extremely excited for what 2016 has in store for us!
Please have a look around my website to learn more about me and my team…
