We have excellent success with our team of 6 jumping horses down in Oliva Nova. Our homebred Venezia finished 2nd in the 6 Year old Final , Violenco, won and placed in numbers 1.35m classes and some strong rounds in the 1.40m. And the then 7yr Elgento jumped many clears in the 7yr old and 1.40m classes showing huge scope and potential for the future.

My congratulations to garden designers, Woolcott and Smith Garden Design and our wonderful donor who made it possible. It is not only a truly beautiful garden but so clever in that it includes education and awareness of the importance of horse welfare.
On a personal note I am delighted that Ballaseyr Royale’s shoe was part of the sculpture, Clippy, by Tom Hill Sculpture.
