LUCRATIVE SW "Luke"
This boy came into Debbies life from our great friend Sheena Ross of Sterling Warmbloods. He is a huge character with a zest for life and sense of humour. Debbie and he "clicked' she seams to like the Gisborne character but this boy has a very good work ethic and high energy levels. We bought Luke as a level 2 horse with a couple of level 3 tests done and he has progressed very fast. Debbie did 4 level 3 tests on him a few months after buying him and then after working through the winter he came out at level 5. In that season he was 3rd in the Advanced section of the FEI World Challenge and was also NI reserve Champion and HOY reserve Champion. He stepped up to FEI level and did a season at PSG also being reserve champion at the NI champs and 3rd at the Nationals level 6. He has natural talent for GP this horse so is now consolidating and strengthening for the step up to Middle and big tour FEI. Lucrative SW made it to CDI level Grand Prix and is still SUCH FUN
Limbo delighted us with his first outing in April, he kept it all together and took everything in his stide. He is nearly 17.1hh now so we are taking him slowly as he has develop and mature. We are loking forward to a few more outings next season. Reserve Champion at your first show is a good start though! We produced RM Limbo to level 5 and he also evented to 2* level. He was sold to a wonderful home in 2018 and he enjoys jumping beach rides and a small bit of dressage
RM Suzie Q and RM Astek Glamerous
RM Suzie Q has progressed up to L3 and is an intelligent mare who has needed time to feel comfortable with the pressure of competition. We have had some fabulous rides, and she is getting more consistant and relaxed bring on next season
Bred by Carol Eivers of Parkridge Stud we were very lucky to purchase "Doris" as a 3 yr old. She is a beautiful mare and will mature into a stunning and hopefully top class mare. She is By Don Frederico out of and Anamour mare. At 5 yrs old now she is starting to show some maturity and more strength so Peter will continue to produce her as a competition horse. She has had some good results despite being a slow developer, but we really like this mare and are very excited to work with her each day. She is worth giving time to. In the 2018/2019 season Doris stepped upt PSG level and is continuing to train on well towards GP
