Drummore Prince Charming our 7 year old gelding by Castle Gizmo out of Sydserff Cinders, won a hugely contested RIHS qualifier at White Rose County. He absolutely owned the ring and shone from the moment he entered. A HUGE thank you to sarah and the whole team for their efforts at home and at shows "princess" did good.

Kippure Lancelot jumped a smashing round and pulled off a flawless show with an outstanding gallop to stand 6th in the mixed height novice out of 30+ top quality ponies thrilled with his result and jockeys confidence restored jumping in public.
But the tears of the day go to Drummore Prince Chamring and Sarah, winning the NF/con open RIHS qualifier.

After a very ropey week of frankie in hospital all did not fall apart at stud, a huge amount of credit to the whole team for keeping everything as normal and even managing a show for her to return to.
4 year old Rosscon Direction won a huge quality contested mixed breed novice class, the open newforest and connemara and the open championship, he is one very special baby.
Not to be out done sidney the dartmoor won a huge m&m Leadrein Class with Madeleine and took the mini championship.
Thats what we call a good day.

Kirtle Maple Leaf didnt have us hanging around too long only a week or so late and she foaled the most beautiful; kind natured filly foal we could ask for. Maple is by Castle gizmo out of Sydserff Reaghaun and this years foal is by the legendary Castle Comet.

WHAT A DAY!!!
The most organised, well run event to date! Facilities were top drawer, both boys recieved a huge amount of interest and can honestly say they were both flawless all day. Lancelot jumped his socks off with a very hungover Meg on board and Star was a saint enjoying lots of attention back the stables. They really did the breed proud representing the versatility and temperament that the Connemara is renowned for.
