Électrique is out of our lovely mare Billy Comme Ca, who herself was a 1m50 jumper competing upto CSI4* level, and he is by Cevin Z who was 4th in the prestigious Foxhunter Championship at HOYS as just a 6-year-old. With proven bloodlines in the direct parents, we are confident that ‘Ely’ has a bright future ahead of him!
After being broken in at the end of last year and then turned away for the winter, Ely returned to work in the spring and has just started to jump a full course at home and is already showing huge potential with a natural will to be very careful on the jumps. He is a beautiful model and the sweetest easy character. He is now ready to go training and start his competitive career!
Rosso has been a part of our stable since he was a green 7-year-old. This is when he properly started his jumping career, which worked in favour with him therefore having plenty of time to develop and grow into himself being a big horse. From there he flourished and stepped up to 1m40 classes with ease by the end of his 7-year-old year.
Now established at 1m45 level, Rosso is a great horse to step up the levels on. He took both of my daughters up to jumping their first CSI** World Ranking Grand Prixs, giving them valuable experience and confidence at this level. He is very straight forward and will take a miss even at this level.
This year Rosso was selected onto the Young Rider Nations Cup team for Team GB in Wierden with my eldest daughter, India. He also won the Puissance class at The Royal Windsor Horse Show CSI5* with Joe Stockdale and placed 4th at HOYS. He has jumped a huge 2m15 in this class showing his undoubtable scope and great brain!
While we know that Rosso would do a fantastic job taking his next rider up to the next level, we would be equally 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!
