Lucca has all the ability to make a future Grand Prix horse. He is tall & scopey, but light in his build and way of going. As a 3-year-old he won the loose jumping competition at Addington, having always shown great potential for the sport.
He is still green as we have given him time to develop being a bigger horse. He is weak in his frame, but he rides well with established flying changes.
Lucca has been to a couple of training shows last year & has not been phased by anything answering all questions asked of him. This is why we have not done so many shows with him; we felt it was more important to focus on developing his flatwork & strength – which we have done & continue to do.
We believe that Lucca has all the attributes to make a Grand Prix show jumper.
The best is yet to come from this exciting young horse!
Rosso has jumped upto 1m45 level nationally and internationally, including CSI** LR Grand Prix’s. He has all the scope, which he showed when winning the Arena UK Puissance jumping 2m15!
He is very brave and will take a miss, making him a very good horse to take you to the next level and gain experience over some bigger tracks. He has more recently been ridden by my youngest daughter jumping her first 1m40 classes. Equally, we would be excited to see where this horse could go in another professional stable, having found all of the questions we have asked him thus far quite easy with his ability!
We are delighted to announce that Louise has recently been awarded with a Level 2 certificate in Equestrian Coaching (showjumping). She is available for coaching to share her wealth of knowledge and experience with you all!
Nym has been a delight to have at Wodehouse Stud and for India and Atiya to produce over the past few years, and we are all very pleased to have found her a wonderful new home in Ireland. We very much look forwards to seeing her partnership grow with her new jockey… Good luck Nym!
We took five horses to Wales to compete at Chepstow International with Atiya.
Keelnacally Quilletto Robuck dominated the pony classes with a 3rd, two 2nds and a win – including 2nd in the 148 Grand Prix… It was a lovely note to finish our time together with!
Florida VDL also impressed jumping the CSI** Big Tour (1m40) classes with small mistakes keeping the pair out of the results.
6yos Dandy Ste Hermelle, owned by Ross Walker, and Calisto de Laubry Z, owned by Sue Crawford, stepped up to jump the age classes and flew around the 1m30 Grand Prix, their biggest track to date, with ease!
It was also Chesterfield Z’s first show back after a small holiday and he impressed as always with a clear in every class jumped!
