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 with Killacoran Blue, a partnership that lasted 5 years, during which time I represented Great Britain at the Pony European Championships twice (2011 and 2013), finishing 14th and 12th respectively. Since then I have gradually worked my way up the levels to complete my first CIC*** in 2017.
I am currently studying French and Italian at Bristol University along side eventing, so my life is a bit of juggling act, but I have great hopes for the 2018 season with my wonderful horses.
Please have a look around my website to learn more about me and my team…
