This last few weeks results have been fantastic however there has been little time to note them. Well done to everyone xx

Windsor Well dones!

Whilst we didn't compete at Windsor Horse Show ourselves of Noble Ponies kept the flag flying with great results.

Clemmie Proud and Gold Digga won the 143cm Open WHP and took the prestigious Championship. Well done Clemmie and her instructor Bron Evans who have worked so hard on this pony. He came from us last September after Emily had competed him in only a handful of shows.


Noble Star and Clare Curry had a fantastic win in the 153cm SHP, reports tell me he looked amazing. I was more than happy to tell the man who I purchased him off in Ireland as a four year old, he told me he bought him from a horse faye out in the country as a two year old after seeing him tied to a lamp post!!!!

Great Weekend!

The weekend of the 31 March and 1 April had us seeing more than our fair share of Myerscough.

On Sataurday we arrived at 8.30 am for a busy day with the three new recruits who excelled themselves.

Sport Horse Classes were first and Dartans Borrack the lovely five year old Kelly bought from Louise in October excelled on his first outing to win. Noble Grand Conan won the six year olds, again a first outing for him, Borrack stood Champion Sport Horse. He not only recieved his first rosette but first sash too. This clever boy was put away to think about his mornings work.

Next up was Noble Grand Conan, this time in the HOYS qualifier - yes a strong ask but he coped admirable just having one down. We have high hopes for him.

Borrack was called upon again for the Novice WH, a strong class of 33. He jumped and went beautifully and won again - he likes red ones!!

Finally it was the turn of Pearl Underwoods Autocrat. He jumped a great clear in a huge restricted class, he then went on to win the class after going beautifully for the judge.

Championship time and Dartans Borrack, this time ridden by Caroline tok the Championship. Two sashs in his first days showing - he can come again. the only bad bit was the photographer wiped all his photos so no first time out pictures for theses babies.

Three tired big beasts home and a turn a round for tomorrow, O and a 50th birthday party in between!!!

Next day  BSPS Area 2B

This was the first show of the year for Abbie Schofield and Noble Boulaurouge. They didnt disapoint winning the Intermediate Novice WH and going on to stand Champion Novice WHP. well done Abbie great start!

Abbie also braved the open IntermediateWH and again jumped clear to finish second, Will Prince won this on Noble Loughnatousa (Emilys pony from last year) it was lovely to see her out going so well.

Ruby was next up. After being ready far to early we thought our little jockey may have peaked however she did a great job to win her class (Lead Rein SH) on Charn secret Legend. Ruby was thrilled with her £6 prize money and Easter egg (Thanks 2B).

Last but by no means least Claudia Benitez and Iiar Max did the M&M Novice and Open Large Breeds WHP and finished second and third after jumping two great clears.

Well done everyone xx 

This week we decided to miss the BSPS Winter Champs and head off to POYS Show Jumping Finals at Bury Farm, then Nick and Emily head straight off to Fontainbleau in France where Emily will be competing - that is when she has returned from her school sking trip!!

Louise is home from Ireland for a couple of months with a hat full of eventers to compete so its all go at Thornton Farm.

Dafina and Emily had a fantastic show at Ingleston Qualiying for the JA final. Jumping some huge courses (with the final round finishing between (1m 40 /1m 50) the pair were definately the youngest and most inexperienced at this level so we were very proud of them.

Noble Kashmir, Dartans Borrack and Grand Conan have all been out show jumping preparing for their season ahead. These are three nice young horses that should have an exciting year ahead of them.

Meanwhile Caroline has a new project. After selling Noble Credit Crunch to Sam Cloy of Scotland, who we keep hearing great reports from,  she has bought herself a lovely five year old Novice Hunter who should be ready to make an appearance in April - he's very special!

Merry Christmas

Wishing all of our clients old and new a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful New Year.


Our thanks once again go to our long standing sponsors Topspec Feeds for their continued support and fantastic feed. 2011 saw the beginning of a new patnership with the company Zebra products who supplied us with the most beautiful Equipe saddlery and for this we are very grateful. We can comfidently say that Topspec and Equipe have helped keep our horses and ponies winning at top level.

Not forgetting our hard working team on the yard for everything they do including Ben, Duncan, Ian, Lucy, Lucy and Katie.

The yard has seen great improvments in 2011 including a fabulous new surface in the out door arena, mirrors in the indoor, some Jump for Joy Jumps...

Good Bye's

The brillant Emoe Jessie has gone to her new home in Norway, Noble Loughnatousa Emilys lovely Novice WHP of 2011 also has a new home as does our long standing servant and Puissance specailist Haddon House Leonardo.

We look forward to 2012 being another exciting year that will see a fair few new faces coming out and some of last years babies moving up a level.


We are lucky as this year there have been a few!

Firstly Emilys European Bronze medal, riding Witch in Portugal was a thrill, Emoe Jessie's RIHS win and King Mac's HOYS win were fantastic. Wild Rose breaking onto the International scene with wins at HOYS and Spuce Meadows, Noble Bestman did his first four star at Burghley with a double clear (all credit to his Team Collett), Leonardo winning the HOYS Puisance and of course Ruby and Blue qualifing for RIHS and HOYS on their first attempt.

Here's to 2012!!
