The Voltaire Design Liverpool International Horse Show qualified ponies

WHITE DIAMOND - Katie Goulding 

I have owned Nemo since he was 3 years old, he came over from the Carnakilly stud in Ireland. 

I slowly brought him on, breaking him as a 4year old then competing him as a novice as a 5/6 year old winning almost everything we did. We then had a restricted year and did some workers and eventually started competing in the open HOYS qualifiers at the age of 8. 

He qualified for the open HOYS Connemara in 2018,2019 and 2021. He also took a junior rider to HOYS in 2019. 

He is my pony of a lifetime, he gives 110% in everything he does and loves going to the beach, everyone that meets him loves him and comments on what a genuine kind pony he is and I cannot wait to ride him at the Liverpool International Show as I know I will enjoy every minute of it. 


Cashelbay Rocket is a 12 year old, Class 1, grey Connemara stallion, Tested N/N for HWSD.

He is owned and bred by Robert and Barbara Fallon of Cashelbay Stud, Athenry, Co. Galway, Ireland

Cashelbay Rocket is by the prolific Cashelbay Cruise, his dam, Cashelbay Misty is an Ashfield Bobby Sparrow Mare, who won in the Dublin Horse Show amongst others.

Cashelbay Rocket has had a very successful ridden career in both Ireland and the U.K most notably winning:

SKELLORN DEJA VU - Kerry Wainwright 

Skellorn Déjà vu (Dan) is a 10 year old homebred class one Connemara stallion by the illustrious Skellorn Harrison, himself a multiple Olympia and HOYS finalist. This is ‘Dan's’ first full season under saddle, he has spent a great part of his life running ‘feral’ with mares and foals. Dan was such a dark grey that I wanted to wait for him to mature and his dapples to form before we competed him. Dan is the nicest kindest stallion you could ever wish to meet – which he passes on to his stock. He will be ridden by Harrison Taylor who produces him from his own yard. We are all looking forward to celebrating New Year at the Liverpool horse show.


I bought Glebedale Jonny Depp in April 2019 from Heidi and Justin Bennett (Popsters Stud). Jonny was bred by Kitty Bodily and is the best stallion but also a typical cheeky welsh!  He’s everything I look for in a Welsh C, he has a beautiful head and an athletic way of going. He’s a typical cheeky Welsh chap who knows he’s a looker and he uses his charm in the line up with his ‘pick me’ face.

 I did some dressage whilst the shows weren’t on and he won every time out with lovely comments from the judges. He’s also an angel to hack and does everything with a smile and his ears pricked.

To date he’s qualified for Hoys both times whilst he’s been with us at the prestigious Royal Highland and picked up his Liverpool ticket with our fantastic producer, Clare Fitch, in awful weather conditions in 2020 at the Heritage Champs and I will be riding him at the final.


Dyffryngwy Sir Picasso by Trevallion Picasso out of Pennal Sian bred by Gwyneth Griffiths owned by Babs Ruchwaldy, ridden by Emma Burrow. 

We have owned Picasso since he was six months old. He was purchased from his breeder at the cob sales, never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined he would achieve what he has!  

He’s won the RIHS, Horse of the year show twice and Olympia!  

He has also won the Royal Highland, the Royal Welsh, Three Counties, Westmorland County and the Great Yorkshire.

He has a home for life with me and spends most of his time happy hacking and going on farm rides, along with getting filthy in the field ! 

I’m blessed to have him, we have had so much fun together and can’t wait to compete at the new Liverpool Horse Show. 


We bought Sweetcombe Sunmaker 4 years ago. He has been a complete angel, with typical Exmoor traits thrown in for good measure! 

He has the heart of a lion as he’s proved with his formidable working hunter career before just flat classes. He is a 9 time RIHS finalist and Olympia finalist in 2017. This year he hasn’t been out of the placings in all his qualifiers, won 2 RIHS qualifiers and won his direct to be attending Liverpool. He is a true, old fashioned Exmoor. 

He is seen with myself in the open classes and Mum rides him at non-qualifying shows having won 6/6 classes they did at Equifest together. 

 He is a true family member & we will both be smiling in that ring at Liverpool. 

LLANARTH FAIR LADY - Melanie Alford 

Bred by The Lanarth Stud

Lanarth Fair Lady (aka Cookie) was purchased from the Cob sales in 2019 where she had qualified for Horse of the Year Show.

Due to covid Cookie was only competed at a handful of shows in 2020 where she won and went Champion at the Three Counties Horse Show.

In 2021 Cookie qualified for 

The Royal International Horse Show 2021

Open mountain & moorland

Intermediate young rider


Horse of the Year Show 2021

We purchased her with the idea after her ridden career she would make a good broodmare with her breeding and hopefully be shown in hand with foal at foot.

Frederiksminde Volcano known as Barney at home is my pony of a lifetime. Owned by myself for 5 years now, purchased from the late Henry Kelly. Barney is by Lissroe Hurricane and out of Frederiksminde Christel. 

He has proved to be one of the most versatile connemara stallions around, having a British Eventing record, winning the Connemara pony of the year at HOYS in 2019, qualifiying RIHS in the flat class and workers, going onto win RIHS and stand champion working hunter pony in 2021. He then went onto stand 2nd in the workers in 2021. 

Not only does he have an impeccable show record, he is the nicest and easiest pony to have around. Barney will eventually stand at stud to limited & special mares. 

MENAI EUROSTAR - Karen Johnson

He’s been with me for 18 months and is owned by Penny Sutton and Peter Rowe.

Thorneyside Guardsman, or Douglas as he is known at home is a Welsh Section D licensed stallion campaigning his first open season.   

Successfully qualifying for Royal International in both the amateur and open classes, HOYS and winning the HOYS consistency award.  

We are delighted as a home produced partnership to qualify for the first Liverpool BSPS final and this really is a great way to end our first open season together.   

Douglas is an absolute pleasure to have around, and has a temperament to die for. He is like my best friend and he makes me laugh on a regular basis. When not competing we enjoy hacking, farm rides and we have done a small amount of dressage also. Douglas also enjoys stud duties when not competing.  

I am very very excited to compete at Liverpool and to welcome in a new year!! Good luck everyone!!  

'We purchased Springwater Guillot, or George to his friends, as a foal from his breeders and collected him at 6 months old. He is a 7year old gelding by Shilstone Rocks Thunderbird and a real part of our family. We enjoyed showing him in-hand as a youngster. I then backed and rode him on and we compete in a variety of disciplines including showjumping, dressage, charity rides and hunting as well as enjoying showing of course!  

George loves going out to the beach or for long rides around the orchards in the Norfolk countryside, he is one in a million and means the world to us. George is incredibly intuitive and we hope in the future he will be able to support people as a therapy pony, helping others to feel better, achieve their goals and even learn a little about the wonderful Dartmoor pony breed.

CARRWOOD ADEN AUR - Ian Palethorpe

Aden started his ridden career 5 years ago. He did one novice season before starting his open campaign. He has since qualified for RIHS and HOYS three times, being placed each year. This year he’s only been lightly shown but had a great season and qualifying for Liverpool Horse show was the icing on the cake. He qualified for RI winning BSPS Area 5 and going Reserve Champion - he was 7th at the final. He won Cheshire County qualifying for HOYS and finished 8th at the final.
Aden has a quirky, unique temperament and will only do things his way. Over the years we’ve learnt to compromise between us, but his routine is the key. He loves the bigger atmospheres and always seems to pull it out of the bag when required. 


Danwood Llewellyn is our 10 year old homebred Welsh section C, By Wyken Rob Roy and out of Rivervalley Lou Lou. Llewellyn was the first Welsh C we had ever bred, but he has gone onto surpass all our expectations.

He was a cheeky character from the day he was born and still continues to rule the roost, banging the gate of his field every day telling us when he is ready to be brought in! He has hunted, loves the beach and is a pleasure to hack around our beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.

In 2018, he made our family's dream come true by winning the Welsh C pony of the year at HOYS, going onto stand overall reserve M&M Champion. He has now made another one of our dreams come true by qualifying for Liverpool and we can't wait to go and enjoy the moment!

MURVEY GEORGE - Sarah Field 
George is an 8 year old class 1 stallion by Glencarrig Knight X Murvey Cara bred by Bernard Keaney. We have owned him since he was a foal after spotting him at the Murvey Stud while visiting the Clifden Connemara Pony Festival in 2013. He had a very successful novice season under saddle winning 4 out of 5 outings and standing champion on 3 occasions. 
After taking the novice heritage championship at the BSPS Winter Champs this year we thought he was ready to take the plunge in some qualifiers, he qualified for HOYS at Stoneleigh finishing 9th at the final and gained his Liverpool ticket at the Heritage Champs after winning his breed class. I’m so proud of what he has achieved in his first open season and delighted he will be representing his breed at Liverpool before tending to stud duties next year.

DUNKERY WIGEON - Maureen Richardson 

Wigeon is a 13 year old working Exmoor stallion owned by Paul and Maureen Richardson of the Buttondown Stud in Swansea. 

He has been resident with his rider Hayley Reynolds since being a 4 year old unbroken young stallion and since then the pair have won the RIHS, been Best of breed 3 times, every time shown at Olympia and made 6 HOYS appearances. 

This year Wigeon qualified for HOYS at NPS Championships, just 3 weeks after Hayley had a baby via C section, there’s no other pony she’d have trusted more so soon. 

A typical Exmoor with Exmoor traits. Wigeon is a huge character who loves food and work is on his terms at all times. He has a fantastic personality on the ground and can be handled by children, and he passes this down to his stock.

Having been very lightly shown in 2020, Rambo has had an incredible first season qualifying for The Liverpool International Show at first asking by taking 1st and Overall Champion at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in July. Rambo also qualified for HOYS finishing 2nd at the final.

Rambo is an incredibly talented young pony; the partnership Sarah and him have is very special and we, his breeders, look forward to enjoying seeing this partnership grow and flourish over the next few years - that is after enjoying seeing him competing at the Liverpool International Horse Show on New Year’s Day this year! 


Wellbrow Diplomat (Dippy) is an 11 year old black Fell stallion owned by myself and my sister Louise Garforth.  We have owned Dippy since buying him from his breeders as a yearling and he is produced by myself from home, meeting up with his regular jockey Hayley Reynolds at shows.  Together they have qualified for HOYS on 3 occasions, being placed every time and for the RI and Olympia final in 2019.

Dippy and Hayley were 2nd at HOYS this year just 3 months after Hayley gave birth to her son William. Then at BSPS Heritage Champs they topped a strong Best of Breed Fell class and picked up their ticket to the Liverpool International Horse Show!

Our good friend Brian Williams rode Dippy to qualify for HOYS this year due to Hayley’s pregnancy and he takes over the ride for us at Liverpool.  We are all very much looking forward to celebrating the New Year together.

EASTLANDS DUNKNOWE - Tammy Heatchcote 

Teddy came into our lives after searching for a Connemara for my daughter, Chloe, at the start of July  Teddy had won and qualified for HOYS at Three Counties with the previous owner before we bought him. It was lovely to watch him with them at HOYS.

Teddy has had a fantastic start with my daughter Chloe winning at NPS Summer Championships and BSPS Heritage. Chloe absolutely loves riding Teddy who has a fabulous character and temperament. When Sarah won the Connemara/New Forest qualifier with Teddy at the BSPS Heritage it was a dream come true.

Chloe is looking forward to riding Teddy in the Liverpool arena on New Year’s Day. A big Thank-you to Bsps and the sponsors to have it at Liverpool Arena show.

Son of Dukeshill Magnum, been on loan with us from the stud since a 3yo and is now very much part of the family.

He has won the Royal Welsh twice in hand. He is a total showman with a very natural way of going and just wants to please you every time. 

Qualified for Royal International every year and made his HOYS debut this year. This is also his first time at Liverpool. 

TREHEWYD CARDI - Kayleigh Evans 

Cardi is a 13yo Welsh D stallion. He has been with us for 6 years, he was owned by David Lorimer until recently when we decided to buy him. He is based on our yard in the North East of Scotland.

He’s an absolute gentleman to deal with and he has a real sense of humour. He enjoys a varied lifestyle often seen out in the dressage arena and flying round some jumps! Cardi adores going out competing, he goes in a real sulk if the lorry goes away without him.

Although not being campaigned much this season, in previous years Cardi has qualified HOYS, RI & Olympia, we are delighted to add Liverpool to the list!

Rekcilf (pronounced wreck-keel-f) Mr. Montagu. 

Six year old black Dartmoor stallion, owed and bred by Wendy Dunn, and partnered by Jennifer Cowan. 

This year, another quiet one, Gui (pronounced gooey) and Jennifer qualified for HOYS at their first attempt when Jennifer was seven months pregnant. 

After a short break for stud duties, and only two weeks after Jennifer’s Caesarean section they won the BSPS champion of champions at the Summer Champs. Then on to take ninth place at HOYS, before the Heritage Champs where they qualified in first place for Liverpool International Horse Show!
