“We believe he can produce the ultimate event horse,” Chris Talley and Hannah Salazar said of Faramund, the Hanoverian stallion owned by Hannah Salazar that has made a cannonball splash in the eventing world this year. Before trying his hoof at eventing, Faramund (Fidertanz x Donna Gloria) earned the 2014 Champion Stallion title at Dressage at Devon with Salazar in the irons. This year, his first year as an event horse, Talley has piloted Faramund to six top-three placings and a successful two-star finish at Plantation Field International.
