Our Horses

Our horses are a fab bunch, and they're all at different stages of their journey. For Polly, it's a privilege to train and break them in as they become part of the family at Sharon's stables; getting ready to compete at higher levels.

 

There's the scatty youngsters, moody teenagers and calm old heads. Some horses fizz with energy, others are simply chill. Some are sensitive, some shy. Some are cheeky while others take themselves too seriously.

I bought Ferro when he was an unbroken 3y/o colt. I only saw him loose schooled and loose jumped. Over a fence he looked like a spider with his long legs, but I instantly fell in love with him.

I thought if he doesn’t event, he can be a dressage horse. 

Ferro is a very talented and athletic horse. He’s extremely intelligent and sensitive. 

He’s what I call “The winner at the warm up” and then he gets stage fright. That’s why it has taken a long time for me to bring the best out in him. 

Ferro started his eventing career when we moved to the UK in the beginning of 2010.

He has competed at Le Lion d’Angers at the World Championships for Young Horses in 2011.

He has completed 13 CIC/CCI3*

Ballindenisk CCI3* 5th place.

Eventing Senior Europeans in Poland 2017, finished 34th

Ferro competed his first CCI4* at Luhmuhlen Germany in June 2018. He jumped double clear and finished 21st out of 50.

Ferro S competed at the World Equestrian Games 2018.

 

2019 main aim is to compete at the Europeans Championships.

Dude is homebred. He followed me to the UK when he was a 2y/o colt.


He was bit of an awkward child. Scared of everything. Terrified of rugs, picking his feet up, men, anyone touching his ears, anyone touching his mane. Basically scared of life.
 

He didn’t start eventing properly until he was a 5y/o. The 5y/o season was the turning point. He grew up and became very confident and started loving attention.
 

Dude is naturally very careful and scopey over the fences. He has lovely paces and the best personality! Lovely cheeky chap.
 

He qualified and competed at Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse finals 2015. He absolutely loved it!
 

This season his main aim is to compete intermediate and CIC** level.
