17hh, 18 yr old Rhineland black mare by Abanos, I have owned Aronique since she was just backed and we have progressed together to currently competing Grand Prix, and being placed at Small Tour level at Premier Leagues. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with this wonderful mare, I have high hopes for her, and she has just started at Grand Prix and is showing a lot of potential. She has won at Area Festivals, been placed at the Area Championships and at Regionals at PSG and Inter1, she has done (and won!) her first Inter 2, and followed that by doing the same in her first Grand Prix.
18hh, 12yr old black gelding by World of Dreams, I bought Wonderland as a foal and so far he is exceeding all my expectations. He was backed as a four yr old, and did so well in limited outings, a very bright future awaits this very special gelding. He qualified for the Shearwater Young Horse Championships as a 4, 5 and 6yr old, and was a Regional Champion, having won his Open Novice Music Winter Regional, and was also well placed at the 2014, 2015 and 2018 Winter National Championships, he is now competing at Small Tour, and has just done, and won his first Inter2, and has now started at Grand Prix.
17.2hh, 9yr old black mare by Voice, I bought Galinda at the beginning of 2015 as a just backed rising 4yr old, she has huge, loose, scopey movement, and as yet, no strength to control her massive paces. I feel she will take quite a long time to develop and grow into her frame and movement, but she has a lot of potential and the sweetest nature, I am looking forward to seeing her progress.
Black 5yr old colt by Zack out of a De Niro x Prince Thatch mare, so far he has shown us fabulous paces, and a lovely friendly, settled nature, so lets see what the future brings. He is under saddle now, and progressing really well.
18.2hh, 11yr old Oldenburg chestnut mare by Dr.Doolittle, I bought Dakota as a foal, and she has grown rather more than I anticipated! She is a state premium mare and she never really had the enthusiasm to train on as a dressage horse, despite comfortably working at PSG level. So she has gone to Mount St John Stud where she is blissful and blossoming as a recipient mare, and has already produced a fabulous colt by Governor. It makes me so happy to see that she has found her niche in life as she is a much loved mare with a beautiful nature.
16.1hh, 18yr old Oldenburg chestnut mare by Relevant, I bought Rouby as a yearling and backed and produced her myself, she has been exceptionally tricky and frustrating, but as I have always believed in her I didnt give up and she has rewarded my patience, by now winning at Advanced Medium and training at Small Tour.
A new edition! A half brother to Zakynthos, a bay colt by Bellisimo M out of a De Niro x Prince Thatch mare born last year, he is 5yrs old now, and I really look forward to seeing under saddle at the end of this year.
