A lot of news to catch up on.
First of all congratulations to Heidi on her purchase of Pepe and Charlotte on her purchase of Persia. It's lovely for us as breeders to know our horses are going to lovely homes. We are still aiming to sell a few more foals or broodmares so please enquire if you are interested in any.

The BEF Futurity season is in full swing and the Volatis team have done very well. First of all we took Lady Benton-Jones' Daldorn Sandpiper to Arena UK, were he was awarded a First Premium and Reserve Champion Yearling Sportpony. Then Kerry Jagger sent us her homebred 3yo for preperation for Richmond Futurity, Indi, who went superbly to be awarded an Elite Premium and Champion 3yo eventer.

Finally our own Volatis Valiant was awarded a First Premium at Heart of England and Reserve Champion 2yo Dressage Horse.

Next outing for us will be Equifest show with some of the Daldorn stock, and then Bucks County show. We also have entered Czar for the Trakehner breed show at the start of September, and Persia is heading for her SHB grading, so some work still to be done.

The foals are all growing fast, and we caught this great shot of the three coloured babies together today, L to R Pepe, Paddy and Delta

Casiphia has been up at the yard for a week and we made the most of it by taking her in the school for a quick run round, and caught the action on video
