BlondieIntroducing Accustomed To Shine, Sue Painter’s awesome reining mare by Custom Crome. Having had a long period off as a brood mare, we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to show her and are very excited about what she has achieved so far!

In just a few outings she has carded some spectacular scores resulting in a several wins at the British Reining Spring and East Coast Circuit Spring shows. The score to beat? 142.5!

What a Year for Baileys!
