Pardon Me II

 

'P' is owned by Cindy and competed at Advanced / CCI**** level by her daughter Emily. In 2005 Cindy and Emily went out to Holland with a friend, Liz Howes  and found P in Alex Seuters yard.. He had never Evented before, but he was produced carefully and slowly, starting at Pre-Novice, winning the Pony Club Championships to taking the Individual and Team Gold at the Young Rider European Championships in 2008. P has completed both Badminton and Burghley finishing in the top 20 nearly every time, and has accumulated 839 BE points in his career to date. 

 

 

Junior II

 

Junior was also found by Cindy and Emily in Holland, in 2007. Junior has competed with Emily up to CCI*** level, finishing 4th at Bramham CCI***  in 2011. Junior finished completed his first CCI **** in Luhmuhlen in June 2013, and we hope to have him out competing again later on this year.

 

 

Bueno Uno

 

Ivor is a 7 year old stallion by Numero Uno. Ivor is a lovely horse with an amazing temperament. We found him in Holland in 2010 in a stud, having never jumped.  He has been produced slowly and carefully and he really is a star. Ivor finished 3rd at the prestigous British Eventing Young Horse Championships at Osberton in September 2011 and has won two BE 100's and a Novice in 2012 as well as many placings. In 2013, Ivor won the CIC* at Camphire and finished 2nd in the CIC* at Hambleden. Judith Norris owns a share in him. Ivor has already been used for several mares, and Emily hopes Ivor will be able to combine careers in eventing with stud work. Ivor is now for sale.

 

 

Society Spice

 

Riz was bought in 2006 as an 11 year old, having been produced by Susanna Dalton nee Barker, for his owner Katie. He was a perfect horse for Emily, having been so carefully brought on by Nanna. Emily and Riz were part of the Junior European Championships in Necarne, coming home with Individual 5th and Team gold. Emily and Riz enjoyed much success together including a 15th place at Badminton in 2010 and a Team Gold and Individual 5th at the Pardubice Young Rider Championships in 2011 - His dressage test interrupted by a huge thunderstorm and rain shower (see below) !  Riz is now enjoying retirement at Downgate Farm  - nannying the foals and making friends (also see below).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ballyduff Rusty

 

We found Rusty in Ireland in 2002 and proved to be a complete superstar. Together, Emily and Rusty were on 3 consecutive British Pony Teams competing at the European Championships, and won the British Pony Championships in 2004 and was also second and third in 2003 and 2005. When Emily was out of ponies, Sophie took on the ride before he was sold to Fran Reeve who competed him successfully  in Pony Trials until his retirement from eventing in 2009.

Killusty Prince

 

Emily competed George alongside Rusty during her time riding ponies. He was a cheeky character, full of personality and a talented eventer. George obtained some top placings in Pony Trials with Emily and continued to look after some new little riders and compete at BE 100 level with  until 2011.

 

Louis Revere

 

Cindy bought Louis straight off the boat from Ireland as a 5 year old and show jumped him up to and including Grade A. When Cindy got married she decided to see if he would take to eventing in 1985. Louis relished the challenge and together, the pair competed at Breda CCI***, finishing in 7th place and at Burghley and Badminton CCI**** . Louis then acted as a schoolmaster at Pony Club level, took Tim hunting and out with the Bloodhounds and carriage driving so he could take the whole family out to the pub in the evenings! Louis then enjoyed a long retirementat Downgate Farm and was really one of the family!
