Balleroy Delilah at Picton
Winner of Picton Qualifier


The showing season has got off to a good start with Kelly, who has been unable to ride for quite some time, winning the Intermediate on Ricky at Tambrook last weekend (23/5), their first time out this year. Ricky was also 2nd. in the Young Riders with Sarah riding.

Today Delilah and Abi got their Picton ticket at Brockenhurst, at the first time of trying, which is a huge breakthrough for Abi and we are thrilled for her.

First Foals of 2010

First to foal was Dudu who has produced a stunning colt named Rajah. Followed within a matter of hours by Inca having her first foal, a colt called 'M' " so many names to choose from but not yet one chosen!

Next to foal was Ivy who presented us with a filly, named Iliana, who is a replica of Ivy when she was born.

Balleroy Mercury at Addington
Freddie (Balleroy Mercury) at Addington


Into the New Year and all systems go to get Monty up to the mark in preparation for the Addington Dressage Champs. Sadly all that came to nothing as he took a flyer in the mud and pulled something which took a while to settle down, so we missed the big event. However Freddie (Balleroy Mercury) was there with Helen and they did very well and were a credit to the Stud.
