14.1 registered section D, 7yo liver chestnut mare. Green for her age but proving to be genuine and willing to learn, popped small fences and has hacked alone and in company, good in traffic. Very sweet mare for someone to bring on in any sphere.
16.1 5yo Chestnut mare, registered ISH by Golden Lariat. Mary is green but proving to be a very easy going and willing young horse. Calm and friendly temperament, always first one to greet you in the field. Good hack alone/company. Lovely easy young horse for someone to bring on in any sphere. No vices.
Good day at Stratford Hills with #Supercob and #FabulousFlame. Both did lovely double clears, Dennis was marginally calmer than he was SJ during the week but although he did a nice test it was slightly below par for him, 32.8 was his score which was good enough to finish 2nd!
Flame did a lovely test, she just keeps getting better, unfortunately she scored an average 33 but can’t complain with 5th place.
2 x double clears, 2 x rosettes, 2 x brill ponies!
Just to make Stratford Hills even better for us our homebred, Lollipops first foal Eeyore won his BE80 section for owner Suzy and rider Jane Bettles, well done guys! Picture of him the day he was born…
Trip to Codham on Tuesday, Flame jumped double clear for 3rd BN before an unlucky pole falling Discovery. Dennis decided it was far to exciting being showjumping and jumped round like a raging bull for couple down.
SUPERCOB DOES IT AGAIN!
28.5 double clear to win his section BE90 at Little Downham! Couldn’t have been any better! We all love Dennis!
Flame also scored a pb sub 30 dressage in a low scoring arena, feeling a bit too chilled in the heat she had one down but another clear XC to finish just outside top ten.
We have had such a fun weekend with Flame and Dennis. Dennis jumped his first ever BS classes, gaining a 5th and scope qualification 85cm and double clear and 2nd British Novice he also finished 4th in the 9p arena eventer challenge.
Flame was brilliant all weekend with 3rd and qualifying for Scope 95cm, one of very few clears round the 22 fence 100 eventer challenge to finish 7th and finishing with another double clear and 3rd British Novice.
On Friday 11th May we had the arrival of a lovely colt foal out of Diva by Carrigfada Grey Mist. We had just gone away for a few days and Rosie’s Uncle Simon was the first on the scene so he’s called Simon!
The following Saturday Lollipop sadly lost her foal, a bay colt by Cos Me Is Black, but it’s been lovely that she has become a Foster mare for a little filly called Bella.
Rosie had a super day at Horseheath with Flame and Dennis both competing in the BE90.
Both did good tests, Flame scoring 33.3 and lying 6th/37, Dennis did a PB of 30 to lie in 3rd/36 starters.
Both ponies jumped good double clears but not without drama! Dennis was stopped on the XC due to a fall of a rider in front of them on course. Hence Rosie tried her best to work out where she was with her time, when she stopped her watch, when the fence judges stopped her time etc etc, but really she wasn’t sure at all how her time would be luckily she got it right for Dennis to finish on his dressage score and win!
Flame did go a bit green on her XC round but stayed genuine and also jumped clear inside the time to finish on her dressage score for 3rd!
We’ve been to Codham a couple of times this month. On 10th of April Flame jumped the Discovery and 1.05 for a pole in each but jumped well and it was her first time straight in at Discovery and first 1.05.
The following week on 17th April she jumped the same again, slightly disappointing having a couple of poles in doubles as it’s so unlike her but she generally jumped well as the pic shows
