Elvis is an exciting young stallion based here at Wodehouse Stud. He has not yet began his career as a sire, but in the sport he is showing all the qualities to make a fantastic competitor.
He is compact and elastic with a super balanced canter and is showing a lot of scope. Paired with this, he is a beautiful model; super commercial and very flashy. He has a great technique on the jumps and finds it all very easy with a great mentality for the job.
We have high hopes for this young talent, both in the sport and as a sire.

Wodehouse Voadicia is by our resident stallion, Vrielink Vans Gravenstafel, and out of one of our homebred broodmares, Wodehouse Boudica. Boudica, herself sired by Silvio I, showed great ability loose jumping as a young horse – with an excellent back end – however due to injury was never able to continue this under saddle. She has instead been an asset to our breeding programme and leaves her fantastic stamp on all of her offspring.
Voada has now started her career under saddle and has a great mentality and is super careful on the jumps. She has an easy balance and looks to be very scopey; an exciting young mare for the future!
Born on the 11th June 2018, Wodehouse Oswyn is our first youngster from our lovely broodmare Queen Mac. Despite her career being cut short in the sport, she was known for her exuberant jumping technique, and showed many a similar qualities to her half brother, prolific pony winner and European Championships team member, King Mac.
This paired with the textbook technique and class of his sire, the young stallion from The Billy Stud, Billy Tudor, should be a very exciting combination indeed.
Wishing the lovely Calisto de Laubry Z the best of luck in his new home. Cali has been a pleasure to produce here at Wodehouse Stud over the past couple of years on behalf of his owner, our very own Sue Crawford. He has brought us a lot of happiness watching him develop in the sport & we are certain he will continue to please in his new address. Good luck Cali & Charlie; we are excited to watch you competing together in the near future!
Cassey works part time at Wodehouse Stud alongside her studies in Equine Management at Easton College. Cassey has been a valuable member of our team at Wodehouse Stud for 4 years now, with a great work ethic and a real love for the horses. She has recently also taken over the reins of our superstar Westwinds Ego who she competes at 1m10 level BS.
Colman is a yard favourite for sure. He is a little horse with a huge heart!
Colman has an exceptional record, up to 1m40 level nationally and internationally, and is rarely out of the ribbons. He loves his job and always wants to jump a clear round. He would suit a competitive rider who loves to win! Or equally he would be a super horse for Childrens/Juniors/Young Riders as he is so consistent and already has experience jumping at Junior Nations Cup shows.
Colman is half brother to Billy Dorito, who under Darragh Kenny competes at 1.50m level, and Billy Marmite who as a 7 year old is competing up to 1.40m.

Ruby is a super competitive little mare. She is a blood type and super careful with a great technique over a fence. She has been consistently jumping clears at 1m30 in Belgium before coming to our stable just before the New Year.
She would make a great contender for the Juniors or Children On Horses Nations Cup series with a competent young rider, but would also make a great addition to a professional riders string.
It was great to be back out competing at our first show post lockdown, and what better place to do it than in the beautiful setting of the Bolesworth Estate at the British Showjumping National Championships.
Chesterfield Z was our star of the show placing in the top 10 of both his Championships with Atiya. Firstly, the Under 16 National Championship on Thursday in which the pair finished 7th jumping a beautiful first round clear with an unfortunate time penalty keeping them out of the jump off. He then produced another fantastic clear on the final day of competition in the 1m30 National Championship where they placed 9th.
We were also delighted with our lovely 4-year-old stallion Elstar STM Z who behaved impeccably at his first stay away show taking the atmosphere all in his stride. He jumped two super clear rounds in the 4-year-old classes and in doing so picked up a 4th placing also!
Atiya also stepped up to jump her first 1m45 class with our own 10-year-old gelding Florida VDL in the Under 21s Championship and put in a good performance in the Grand Prix Qualifier/Junior Viewing Trial gaining valuable experience at this level to take forwards.
We are now very much looking forward to our next show which will be Hickstead at the beginning of September, and look forward to this week visiting India in her new base in Germany!
