Margaret jumping Darcy

Malin Roses

Darcy - 17yr 16.1hh Skewbald mare, we bought Darcy after she came to us for some schooling and to sell after been sold to the wrong people and had become very tense and worried, she needed a lot work but right from the start we liked her so after a couple of weeks we made an offer and Darcy became a permanent member of the team. Mum has had a great time hunting her, more recently Cherise has hunted her, done really well arena eventing her qualifying for both the finals at Vale View & Osberton. They successfully did one event in 2020, keeping fingers crossed we got more of a season in 2021.

 

LIMESTONE RINGO

Mick - 8yr 16hh bag gelding. We bought Mick as a just broken 6year old from Goresbridge Sales, Ireland in 2019. He does not have any official breeding but I spoke to his breeder after getting him home, he said he is 3/4 Thoroighbred and 1/4 Irish Draught, his Grandsire is meant to be Corcoran Land.   He is a lovely horse with a fantastic work attitude, he always tries his hardest to please, last year he did a few events in the short 2020 season, he won both of his 90cm events and was 5th in his first 1m event.  I cant wait to get him out once the competions start again.

Go With The Flo

FLO - 17yr old 16.1hh Thoroughbred Mare by Alflora out of Orphan Annie.23BE points, £1434 BS winnings. We broke Flo as 3yr old and even then she had a fantastic attitude, we bought her as a four year old. She is such a brilliant horse who can and will do anything you ask of her. We have been placed many times at Novice level eventing and jumped double clear at at CCI1*, she has been placed at both Gatcombe & Rockingham International intermediate, we have showjumped upto 1.20m and she is the first horse I have won over a £1000 on. The eventing has become so expensive I decided not to event her this season but I have had lots of fun hunting over some of the biggest hedges, been team chasing and in the last couple of years Hannah Slater has taken over the competitive reins, Flo has certainly tested her but they make a great team now and have been placed up to 1.05m SJ and gone well 1m eventing and are hoping to step up a level in 2021.

A BIG ASK

Will - 6yr 16.3hh bay gelding.  We bought Will just before the October lockdown in 2020 from Irish Horse Imports near Reading.  He had just come out of racing a month before we got him, he has done three point to points in Ireland but just wasn't fast enough. We are really excited about him as he is very naturally athletic with lots of scope.  He has just been hacking about since we had him with the odd bit of schooling, I have popped one fence on him which he felt great over!  2021 will about preparing for the future with hopefully some training shows and maybe an event later in the year if he feels ready.

Ila and Rosie

SWEET SILVERSTONE ANNIVERSARY

Rosie - 9yr 13.1hh Strawberry Roan Mare.  Rosie came to us to sell in 2018 as she was being cheeky in the riding school that owned her.  She is a very talented pony with a big personality!  She is certainly doing a good job of teaching Ila to ride, saying that she is a very kind and honest pony just a little sharp at times, (she doesn't like the cold!!). They have had lots of fun doing all pony club activities including camps, rallies and just done thier first show jumping competition for the Quorn Pony Club, hopefully they will be out lots in 2021.
