Ballycash, the first mare we used to breed from and is SH Ballyzach and SH Ballycarentino’s dam. Born in 1986 in Ireland by Tula Rocket, she became a grade A at the age of 12. The highpoints of her career have been coming 2nd in the 1.40 Consolation at the Scope Festival, 3rd in the Bicton Derby and other wins at 1.25m to 1.40m too numerous to mention, she still ranks in the top 500 Irish bred mares. Having brought us her 2008 foal we now feel that she has earned a leisurely and well deserved retirement.

Miss Nativio

Otherwise known as Becks, she was born in 1995 and is by Maestro Nativio out of an Irish mare. At the age of 4 she had a foal, Bugsy that is now competing BE and BSJA, she was then broken in and I bought her. She has competed up to 1.30m level but following a virus we decided to breed from her. In 2007 we had our first foal from Becky, Devonair SH (Mumble) who is looking very promising as a yearling.

We were considering bringing her back in to work to fulfil her competition potential this year but felt that as Mumble was such a lovely foal and she was such a great Mum that we would breed again for 2008. In June Devon Diamond SH was foaled, combining Miss Nativio's potential with the sire Jack of Diamonds (full brother to Nick of Diamonds) should mean that Devon Diamond SH is a foal with a great show jumping future.

Miss Harmony

This ¾ Selle Francais by the French stallion Duc de la Becane, Minnie is co-owned by us and Danni and Julie Russell of Sovereigns Riding Centre in Steyning, West Sussex. Danni is taking a year out of riding and following a very serious accident last year it was decided that Minnie could also have a year out and breed. Minnie has been placed in Newcomers and Fox and competed in unaffiliated eventing, she is a very talented mare that has never really been competed seriously. At this stage we are not decided on whether she will have a career as a brood mare or whether she will come back in to work after her 2008 foal.
