1. It always seems such a relief to get the Christmas, New Year period out of the way and enthusiastically embrace the new year.  We have ended up with six foals this season comprising a filly and a colt by Garden Vale Stylish Image and two colts and two fillies by Bradmore Toy Soldier (imp).  How's that for balance?

Indy (Garden Vale Stylish Image) has been kept very busy over the holiday break with ongoing requests for services in addition to him now having 5 riding sessions to his credit from Richard Sharman. We cannot speak highly enough of Richard's ability.  We are thrilled by the progress Indy is making under saddle.

Ruth Hannah  has offered to show Smithfields Evita (bay yearling filly by Bradmore Toy Soldier (imp) out of Smithfields Evening) for us this season. Her first outing will be an Arabian show at the end of February.
