Another sad day

Sadly we lost our beautiful filly Lola today due to an irrepairable leg injury. I cant describe how sad and heart broken I am, that such a talented and promising young horse has been snatched away from us.

Thank you to all our friends for your words of support. She really will be truely missed.

RIP my lovely girl. Run free forever

Overdue update

With the show season in full swing, we are well overdue an update on here. Firstly I'd just like to explain that our reduction sale does not mean we are selling up totally. I struggle deciding which stock to keep and which to sell, so have decided to out them all up for sale, and let the market decide which sell first and fastest. We do need to sell at least 4 or 5, so if you have your eye on any of them, please call or email.

In the show ring we've continued to have good results showing Lady Benton-Jones' 2yo Daldorn Ectasy, who added Sporthorse Championships at Northern Horse Show and Royal Norfolk to his tally. He was then placed in a strong class at Kent County, where Daldorn Spring Thyme took the Reserve Championship in the Riding Pony Breeding Section, a position she had also filled at Royal Norfolk.

The foals continue to grow and thrive. We are so pleased with all of them and are trying to get them all over to the indoor school to take some photos. First up was Volatis Parthian (Paddy), our youngest foal this year, by Ringo out of Persia VS. He is a serious little mover!
