Laura and fitch


well done Laura and Fich another lovely horse we bought and sold as a 4 year old 

So, I am now the owner/rider of an intermediate event horse!!! My little hunter Fitch did me proud today and was 3rd after a fab dressage, followed by another lovely double clear. I had a few time faults which cost us the win, but I obviously took one pull too many cross country - but better safe than sorry - and I thought we went pretty damn quick! For him to have upgraded to intermediate when I had given up eventing is testimony to a truly wonderful little horse. What a dude!!!

Jet and florence


A lovely note from Florence we are so thrilled he has such a super  home and so well loved 

I just wanted to write a status about my time with Foxhill Jet so far. When I first got jet he was way too good for me! Even went I went to try him out he whiz zed me round the xc safely with a snaffle in! When I went to try him he was so excited to jump and I had never experienced such an eager pony! After driving 6 hours overall to yours hire and back we decided he was the pony for me. 

I literally could not explain my excitement when he arrived. I got a load of gorgeous accessories too when he arrived like this Beautiful rug. Then and now has change so much. I am te most confident rider on the most extraordinary pony in the world! He took me to my first even at 1m xc going round ckear, recurring 26.4 in the dressage( also my feat dressage test on him) and clear showjumping. We came 2nd in the end. I would just like to thank Chloe Bell and Helen Bell for making my dreams come true. I can't wait for what to come. 💕 love you jet

Riding Club Area Horse Trials


Hi Helen I  have attached a photograph of Walter, purchased from yourself at the end of October last year.  I can remember sitting in your kitchen waiting for the money to transfer accounts and you saying 'I can just see you on my blog page in time to come'. Well here it is......
We spent the first few months just getting to know each other and attending our local riding club members competitions and training sessions. We then did our first BE event at Oasby and have now completed a total of 4 and represented ADRC at two Area 4 competitions, recently qualifying for the HT championships so really looking forward to that. I am in regular contact with his previous owners who love to hear how he is getting along. You may recall it was a hard decision to buy another horse and commit to getting back into eventing but I can honestly say no regrets I am very happy with Walter he is a special boy and we are looking forward to some more ribbons but more importantly having some fun. Thank you for all your help and support, I am sure I will be back for more help! 
 
Thanks again Sue Pycock
