The Royal International Horse Show

We had a great week at Hickstead, with some brillant results from everyone!

Firstly came the 128cm Winter Final


Rockingham Shadow and Emily won this exciting final to get the week off to a great start. Emily enjoyed the thrill of jumping and winning in the International Arena and Rocky was a machine.

Then the WHP's.

Lilacs Pegaty and Sophie Schofield jumped an amazing round finishing a very credible fourth. Emily and Stan were unlucky to jump the wrong side of a flag resulting in elimination - however he was jumping fantastic so we had to be pleased with him.

Next up was Noble Bestman (Steve) and Michael Whitaker in the eventers Grandprix.Steve who was second in th WH final here last year started eventing with Laura Collett at the beginning of the year and with Laura away at the Europeans Micheal took up the reins jumping a great round with one down and a steady time(he wasnt allowed to go fast!!!).

Horse Worker day and Noble Cool Diamond finished ninth in the Light Weight WH and Barry Bug a great third in the Heavy Weights.


Next was Emily and Pontsarn Sidan, with owner Helen Mackay and daughter Clare travelling down from the top of Scotland to watch. Sidan did everyone proud finishing sixth after jumping a super clear.

Finally Emily and Noble Torreen Lass (Mell) in the Nursery Stakes - finished a great Third.


Welldone to Noble Boys

Noble Rockstar was once again awesome and won the Open 153cm WHP , second in the Intermediate WH and stood Reserve Champion, and Bramble Pie stood second which was great for our ponies but even better for the Barnes family. Noble Romeo was well placed in the horseworkers, as was Noble Star in the PP SHP with Clare Curry.

Spring Does It Again

The unbelivable Noble Springbok has done it again this weekend taking Team Gold and Individual Silver at the European Eventing Championships with Grace Walker. Well Done!!!


Haddon House Wild Rose and Jo Clayton have been up to great things qualifying in both the Newcomer (Areana UK) and Foxhunter (Wales and West) Finals at HOYS. Rose who is owned by Nick was originally produced by Kelly before moving onto Michaels as a five year  old.
