Welsh Masters

A successful show at Welsh Masters with Miss Contendro qualifying for the ladies final & the Grand Prix, taking 10th place in the ladies qualifier & finishing in the top 20 on day 2 in the 1.40 to qualify for the Grand Prix on day 4. She didn't disappoint in the Grand Prix, jumping a little to forward into the combinations paying the price at the last part with a pole on the floor, but a confident round.

Addington Spring Championships

Great few days at Addington Spring Championships with "Miss Contendro", she had a placing and jumped super round the Winter 1.35m Final, which was very technical. Lovely to see the new team at Addington make some well needed improvements to surfaces and facilities, and a new chef on site made the food fantastic!!

Recent purchase


Very excited to have just purchased this lovely Hannoverian gelding by Tolegro born in 2015, his registered name is "Turbo", he is currently unbroken, so will be backed and produced ready for the young horse classes this year. He is a very tall elegant model with plenty of blood, an exciting prospect for the future.
