At 7 years old Miner's Frolic finished 2nd at the 2006 Le Lion d'Angers Young Event Horse Championships (CCI**).

2007 was a bumper year: Miner's Frolic won the CIC*** at Brightling Park by posting the only clear round in the show jumping phase as well as the Gatcombe Festival of British Eventing CIC *** section which he led from the start with the only score in the 30’s.  He was second at Blenheim CCI*** and third at Boekelo CCI***

In 2008 he went on the become the Individual Bronze Medal winner at the Beijing Olypic Games.

2009 saw 3 Advanced wins and 6th place at Luhmuhlen 4*.

2010 - the only blip on an otherwise faultless record saw a fall at Badminton.

As is well documented, Miner’s Frolic suffered from a near fatal infection and was withdrawn from Badminton in 2011.  It took him the rest of the year to recover and come back to full fitness .  However what a comeback he had:

Team Silver at the London Olympic Games as well as well as individual 6th overall.
