Bill Noble suggested she try him as he was owned by a working pupil in his yard who was too tall for him, The minute she sat on him she knew he was gorgeously right for her. One week later, a legal exchange took place between two 4 year olds. Brugs became the owner of Huszti and a big stallion she was riding at the time left for pastures new.
In their first year together, Huszti and Brugs never went to a show without winning a class. Huszti was out of Novice after just six shows, skipped Elementary, qualified for the Regionals at Medium at the first attempt, was reserve Midlands Champion at Advanced Medium and at Prix St George was 2nd at Hickstead in the Southern Regional Championships.
