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.

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!

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...

BSPS

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.

BSPS

Springbourne Cartier is a 5-year-old Section A stallion with a sense of humour and doesn’t he know it!

Stewart Franklin of the Sarum Stud bought him as a foal and showed him very successfully in hand as a three-year-old. We had greatly admired him as a young colt and were delighted when Stewart rang and offered him to Anna saying he wanted Anna to have a nice ‘A’ stallion to ride.

He enjoyed a creditable, if quiet-ish year as a novice last year and this year started open classes. Anna’s problems with carpel tunnel in both hands, which developed in the spring this year, resulted in us asking Sarah Challinor to take him on for the season. We’ve always thought he was a super looking pony but to qualify for Hoys and Olympia with Sarah and her hard-working team has made us very proud. Anna is very much looking forward to riding him in the Olympia Final.

Finishing 4th, Best of Breed and Best Mare at HOYS in 2018 she qualified for Olympia by taking Champion at Mid-Herts Country Show in July. A prolific winner in hand as a youngster, she has been sensitively and quietly brought on over the years. We can't wait to see her debut at Olympia this Christmas and to have two homebred mares competing at the same time will be very special.
