The Horses

     

Quincy

Show name: Quincy 151. Gelding. Age: 13

Quincy was Emma's first horse arriving in the summer of 2015 as she was coming off ponies.

He is very easygoing and loves to jump.

Quincy is Emma's most experienced horse, having recently moved up to 1.40+ classes in 2018.

Twiggy

Show name: Evy Twiggy. Mare. Age: 10

Twiggy arrived with Emma in September 2016 as a 7 year old, jumping at newcomer level.

She has a gentle temperament and a lovely build, being by Quasimodo V/D Molendreef and having a lot of thoroughbred on her dam’s side.

Twiggy has recently moved up to 1.25, jumping round the 1.25 small 2* GP at Keysoe.

Mia

Show name: Chekalux. Mare. Age: 8

Mia was bought as a 5y/o in July 2016. She was at the time an event horse.

She is by Chekhov (Cornet Obolensky) out of an Olympic Lux (Lux) mare.

Mia is a very talented mare who has an enormous jump, a big loveable character and is now well on her way as a show jumper.

Hildee

Show name: Hilde II. Mare. Age: 7

Hildee arrived in November 2016 as an unbacked 17.2h, 4y/o.

After taking some time to settle in, Emma backed her and started her off from there.

She is a very exciting horse with the sweetest of temperaments and is well on her way in a competition career.

Milo

5 y/o gelding

Bought from a field in Ireland in August 2017, out of the same mare as Misty.

Penny

Show name: Pennys Captain

As a full up 148 showjumper, she competed at a top level including pony Foxhunter second rounds, which often exceeded 1.30m.

She has now retired from jumping and is enjoying life as the mother of Lola and Captain.

Lola

Show name: Lieutenant Lola

Lola was born in June 2017.

She is by Luidam and is out of one of Emma’s best Premier circuit ponies - Pennys Captain.

She is a lovely foal and is already proving to be quite a character!

Chad

Chad is a Welsh section A and was bought for Emma when she was 5. Together they turned their hand to mounted games, dressage, SJ and XC.

He was responsible for teaching Emma the basics of her craft.

When she eventually outgrew him, he went out on loan to help other children.

This summer we decided to have him back to retire him.

You will now find this 26 y/o veteran wandering around the yard looking to be stroked and occasionally being ridden by children of friends.

Special Mention

Misty

Show name: No Regrets VIII

This special pony arrived as a novice 5 y/o having only been to a couple of shows. Emma schooled and competed him for the best part of 3 years and they learnt an enormous amount together.

Their journey eventually took them to International shows in Belgium and Holland, Winter JC finals at the RIHS Hickstead, Newcomer finals at HOYS and Foxhunter finals also at HOYS, where they were placed sixth.

Misty was sold into the USA, where he is competing in horse classes with his new rider.

He recently won a Longines Global Champions Tour class on Palm Beach, Miami.
