Show season so far…

We have been busy bees at the yard, constantly getting ready for the next show or coming home from the last one! We have also had a steady stream of breakers coming in since winter and right through spring/summer which definitely keeps us out of trouble during the week!

We have three stallions qualified for the RIHS this year but only Boston & Freak will attend as Stan (Heartbreaker) is currently busy with the ladies!

The Cuerden family also have their fantastic red and white traditional Not A Patch and of course Del Boy both qualified for RIHS & HOYS so big well done to Chelle & Lizzy!!

Now through to the final at HOYS we also have our novice stallion Boston and Kimico Stud’s In Your Dreams, so we will be busy at Birmingham again this October!

The rest of the season will see us getting the novice animals out and about in preparation for next year,
as well as producing some more lovely quality cobs for sale. We are very lucky to have been sent our first Show Cob (hogged!) to produce.. Camilla Neame & Val Sheehan’s lovely Ambrose (Carry on Cob) will be one for you to watch out for!

If you are thinking of purchasing a cob for showing or even just general use please contact Susie as she always has a couple in being prepared for sale and if not can surely find you one!

A big well done!!

To Diane & David Darling with their beautiful native type gelding “Zeus”

Zeus was broken and sold by us to the Darling family at the end of 2012 and he has been enjoying some dressage and local showing with Diane over the winter.

He went to the BSPA Winter Championships at Keysoe last week and won both of his inhand classes and his Novice Ridden Pony Final.

He is a stunning boy and we look forward to seeing more of him out and about this year. Well done!!

BSPA Northern Spring Show & Grading

A long but successful day at Northallerton. Credit to BSPA as its always a friendly well run day, despite the cold wet weather!

Stan (Heartbreaker) won his class and qualified for The Royal International and was also Reserve Champion.

Boston also attended for the grading and passed with high percentage.

Big congratulations to Mark & Michelle Cuerden who also qualified Del Boy for RIHS and Beau Diddley passed his grading!!

Variety is…

The season is just around the corner and our cobs are enjoying their fittening regimes..last week was a fun fling around Somerford Park Farm Ride in Cheshire, this week a local dressage competition down the road at the fantastic new Northcote Stud.

Schooling can become so boring so we like to do lots of hacking and different activities to keep the cobs fit & interested in their work.

Hope you enjoy the pics, more updates soon x
