Koyuna Tactician is by Koyuna Genesis and was bred by the Koyuna Stud in 2010. He was purchased in May 2017 as a 6yo and finished the year in fine form, winning 3 of his 6 starts including his first 1 star start with Sam. Tom is an easy going giant and his special character makes him a real favourite.

In 2018 Tom was campaigned at CIC1* (now 2 star level) with much success, including taking out the Noble Spirit award at Tonimbuk for the highest placed Young Rider, and completing double clear rounds at Melb3DE to end 4th in a huge field of 89 competitors!

The Covid lockdown years were slow for everyone – Tom went to 3star level for the first half of 2021, including taking a win at this level at Woady Horse Trials, but he had to wait until March 2022 before completing a CCI 3star Long competition at Wandin Horse Trials. Later that same year he made a successful transition up to 4star level, and in 2023 he consolidated his skills in 4star, finishing in the Top 3 5 times!

In 2024 Koyuna Tactician and Sam are poised and ready to complete their first 5star level competition at the Adelaide Equestrian Festival in April!
