Olympia Qualifiers



I bought ‘Charlie’ on behalf of Cheryl when I saw him as a novice at the end of 2016.  In 2017, he was unbeaten in Novice classes concluding with standing Open Ridden M&M Champion at Equifest. 

This season our aim was just to try some open classes and see what happened... he won his first two outings of the season and stood champion both times.... going on to be Champion at the Royal Bath & West and qualifying for Olympia was beyond our wildest dreams!  

I have been riding him from the day Cheryl bought him and I keep him on a DIY Livery yard down the road from where I work at Philip Hobbs Racing, doing him before and after work. This pony just has the most outstanding temperament and is incredibly versatile, he is everyone’s best friend!

HETT SOLITAIRE - Rene Bradley 


Hett Solitaire 7 yr old Dales Pony bred by  Hett Stud Co. Durham has been with me for 18 months and has always been a pleasure to have around. She has a very expressive old fashioned type movement which really makes her stand out in the ring,  she moves on all fours like a true dales pony should. Her first time at hoys this year saw her being placed 6th in the final line up and even though she was the youngest pony in the class, she just took it all in her stride and never faltered in her performance. We were then off to heritage to do the Double and qualifying for Olympia and RIHS 2019 at heritage champs. This Mare is outstanding in her attitude towards work and always aims to please regular jockey Amy Smith who admits not liking mares has fallen in love with this lady I think mainly because she always tries her best for her. 




’Eric’ is a 6 year old stallion by the prolific Moorcroft the Master. 

As a youngster he was a Bronze & Silver medal winner inhand. 

Sire of successful progeny including an In Hand Medal Winner.

In December 2017 he came to me on loan where he would continue his ridden career. He had been broken and attended a handful of small shows in 2017. 

2018 was a season we could only have dreamed of for a complete novice where at the beginning we got 3rd at Windsor. He continued his amazing results throughout the season which included reserve champion ridden C at royal welsh, supreme ridden at Tudor rose welsh show, 1st & reserve champion intermediate at northleach and 2nd at national welsh. He collected his first hoys ticket & finally both our first Olympia tickets at heritage champs. 

Owned by Mr.I.Hill


GLENCARRIG MARBLE - Samantha Fowler 


Mickey is a Connemara Stallion by Janus x Coosheen Breeze, who was bred out in Ireland by Mr C Curran of the Glencarrig Stud.

He needs no introduction, this is our fourth year competing at Olympia. We have had numerous successes together over the last few years, too many to mention, but our highlight of last year was being 2nd at HOYS. This year he has been lightly shown gaining our HOYS qualification back in May, second time out and since then we have taken it easy enjoying hacking out over the heath.

I have owned him since 2014 and our partnership has grown from strength to strength. I produce him from home by myself and when we are not showing we compete in dressage, where in the past we have reached the Petplan Finals. During the Winter months we can be seen out regularly with our local hunt, which Mickey finds great fun.




Dunmere Woodruff is a 10 year old Dartmoor stallion, bred and owned by Jo Green- the Dunmere stud. He is produced and ridden by Megan Hewitt and has been very lightly but successfully shown under saddle. Woodruff this season qualified for both HOYS & RIHS, in which he was 2nd at the final and highest placed Dartmoor. 

He has the most amazing temperament and a huge personality. When back at home he carries out his stud duties and through the winter months he also hunts with the Four Shires Bloodhounds, plus a bit of dressage and jumping. 

This will be Woodruff’s second visit to Olympia - he really is a pony of a lifetime and we cannot wait to compete there again! 




Haighmoor Llewelyn 2007 now aged 11 years old. 2018 has been an incredible year for us all where he qualified for Royal International, HOYS (being placed 7th) and now Olympia. Owned by Emma Davis Ridden by Kate Williams Bred by Julie Evans of the Haighmoor Stud We purchased him as a 7 year old at the October 2014 51st Autumn Cob Sales at Builth Wells, prior to which he had been shown as a youngster and used as a stud stallion. Upon getting him home from the sales we commenced with his new career and by Christmas 2014 he was a ridden stallion. Since then he has worked his way up through the novice ranks until seriously contending his open shows in 2017. A dream to own and he certainly has made 2018 a year when dreams really do come true.





We purchased Comet from Mrs Helen Worth in 2014 as a 4yr serving stallion. We knew that Comet was going to be special and that we had to take it slowly to gain his trust and respect. Life wasn’t easy, but he learnt to trust us and Ellena as his rider. Comet came out on the circuit in 2016 as a novice, he can be sensitive, but with good encouragement and reassurance, he excelled himself. We decided not to over show him and to carry on taking it easy with him, so that he would enjoy the showing world as much as we do. As a family we think this has worked, he is the most loving pony who will always try his best. He qualified for the RIHS and HOYS in 2017 and 2018, we are so proud, then he goes and qualifies for Olympia, you honestly can’t top that...





Buzby has such a successful season in 2016 we decided he would spend 2017 out the field with his mares & return him to ring in 2018 with Libby as she’d be old enough to ride him.

They have had a fabulous season, they are the perfect together both love the show ring, like an audience and always smiling.    

Buzzy is our absolute proud & joy, he’s a pleasure to take anywhere, he’s the perfect pony for Libby’s first time riding Olympia. 

He’s been produced this season by Debbie Thomas she always says he’s the most rideable pony she’s ever had, he’s definitely a yard favourite with everyone.





Lynuck the Showman or Peanut as he is more affectionately known is an 8yr Welsh Section C stallion. 

Owned and bred by Lynn Scott and produced by her daughter Emma from their home in Lancashire. 

This will be the third consecutive year that peanut has qualified for this championship having been third overall as a novice in 2016 and then going one better to stand reserve champion in 2017 taking best of breed on both occasions.

Peanut has only been lightly campaigned during 2018  having collected his RIHS & HOYS tickets by April and then went  on to win the first direct Olympia qualifier by standing Champion at Royal Windsor in May meaning he could pretty much put his feet up for the rest of the summer, the odd  run out saw him stand Champion at the Scottish Horse show and also win the ridden section C final the at the National Welsh Championships.

Olympia is without a doubt one of the highlights of the showing year for me, its truly unique atmosphere is something to really look forward too and I’m sure peanuts of the same opinion......... He loves a big occasion.
