The horses – class of 2017!
The Believable Fox (Hamish!)
Hamish is one of our home-bred horses, out of Matt’s old event mare Kate (Foxhill Fontaine), by the legendary late Unbelievable Darco. He is a big softy who always tries his best, and was successfully competing at 2* level last season before injury sadly meant the rest of the season off!!
African Blues (Blue!)
Blue is a TB ex-racehorse owned by Jackie Taylor, retrained in his second career. He competes happily at BE90/100 level although has jumped clear around Novice. Blue has plenty of ability and cat like spring although can be slightly opinionated at times!
Bluecrop Boy (Big Blue!)
Also owned and bred by Jackie Taylor, half brother to African Blues, he is a fantastic contender at BE90 and has had many top ten placings, the dressage judges love him. His racing history over hurdles means that for safety reasons he will not be aimed at any higher level and he has nothing to prove!
Game Charade (Highboy)
Highboy is owned by Sarah Skae, he is a very talented but sensitive chap who has competed at BE90/BE100 and due to his fantastic paces is hard to beat in the dressage arena! He has been taken very slowly due to his rather neurotic brain which we hope he is learning to control!
Hawkeye Blue (Milo)
Milo is new to us having purchased him from an old friend and client Kim. She had found him a little sharp for the dressage job so we are going to (hopefully) have some fun with him on the event circuit this season.
