11th Weston Park CIC 1 STAR

Our son,Tom, was at boarding school and was moving from a 14.2 and onto his first horse for BE. Helen found us a perfect school master in Yorkshire that was not on the market. She knew Daydream as she had bought as a 5 year old and the horse was now moving on after 4 years. Helen could not have found us a more suitable horse - straight forward enough for Tom to enjoy despite spending the majority of his time at school - but talented enough to take him through the ranks of Pony Club Championships, BE pre novice, Novice and 1*. They were slected to go to Haras du Pin in the junior squad and then was part of the winning Midland Area team at Weston finishing 11th individually. We will be aiming for Intermediate in 2013 and we like to think there is still plenty of improvement to be had. David

Jerry

Jerry

We bought Jerry form Ireland as an untouched 4 year old and after spending all winter breaking him we then competed Intro and Pre Novice during the spring before selling him on to Lotti. Read what she said about him.

read more

Close

I got Jerry from Helen in July 2007, when he was 5, Jerry was my first horse and a big step up from a 14.1 pony! In our first summer together we did pony club, riding club and lots of schooling finishing off the season with a number of Hunter trials, at which we went clear every time.

In 2008, our first year of British Eventing we did 3 Intros starting at Richmond in May (where we were placed 8th) to get our confidence and then 2 Pre-Novice events – Draycott in August where we were placed 4th and Aske 7th in September. We also qualified for the Riding Club Horse Trails Nationals and were placed in the Pony Club Area Horse trials.

This year we will start again with Pre-Novice and hopefully progress to Novice later in the year. We have already schooled over Novice cross country fences at which Jerry has been excellent! Jerry’s best discipline is definitely cross country (where he has never had a jumping fault!!)

Jerry has been a fantastic horse for me – he was broken to have great manners, which makes him a very easy horse to handle on the ground and look after and he loves people and attention, and I cant wait for this season!This season Lottie has had a great season Novice finishing 6th Bishop Burton going Double Clear UPDATE 2011 lOTTIE HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR JRN TEAM AT WESTON PARK WELL DONE LOTTIE

Hi Helen Thought I would drop you a line to say Archie has settled in really well. He is a pleasure to do and really is a family horse, I never see Chris as he is always out on his "oss". They went cubbing on Saturday with the York & Ainsty South and I was very proud of both of them. Archie travelled happily in the middle of the field mainly at a trot - perfect! Loose horses etal did not phase him. Chris is now hooked and looking forward to kitting himself out for the season. New saddle arrives on Friday. Big ask I know - can you please find another of the same stamp? I have attached some photos. Kind regards Chloe

Hi Helen   “Just a quick note to say how delighted with Fitch I am.  He surpassed all my expectations as a 5 year old to complete five BE100’s – four of which were with a double clear, and the other one the rider did an unexpected dismount halfway around the course after a 28 dressage and clear show jumping – we were in the lead!!!  Hey ho.  He then jumped easily round three Novice tracks, where he felt like a pro.  All this when I only bought him as a hunter and I told you that ‘I’m not looking for an eventer – just a nice horse to have fun hunting on’!  Anyway, he is a fabulous hunter and after a quiet eventing year this year, mainly due to all the wet weather, we are looking forward to more Novices and maybe even a one star in 2013 – and who knows – maybe even an intermediate????!!!!  Thank you so much – I love him to bits.”   Picture attached is Fitch jumping his little socks of in his first Novice last year at Richmond.

Josh has had a great time with Oli in his 1st season Having Only purchased him in the summer and they have been placed in BE 90 A really nice partnership on this talented 5 year old one to watch . Hi Helen After 5 very successful years with Rocky Boy (Roxster), who was one of the first ponies you imported from Ireland, Josh sadly outgrew him. Roxster took Josh from a wobbly 9 year old with his first jumping pony right through to PC Intermediate Eventing Championships with success at BE100’s – How do you replace a pony like that? – well, we came back to you for a bigger version!!!! We found him in Oli, a strapping 5 year old ISH. Bought from you in July we have been carefully bringing him on with a few BE90’s over the summer and we are extremely pleased with him indeed. A lovely little horse that has kept our now 15 year old teenager son still hooked on eventing. Roxster meanwhile is now introducing Josh’s younger sister Lettie to eventing. Thank you!

Hi Helen

Just thought you might like to hear how Ted is doing.... Yesterday he won the dressage (Tickled Pink Dressage Show at Richmond) with 44 in the class. We were amazed. That was his fifth dressage outing, and he's been in the rosettes each time.

He did the Camp Hill ODE a month ago, and came ninth. He loves XC and has a very bold jump. Rachel will do the open at the Camp Hill Hunter Trial later this month. He's settled very well and is a sweetie to look after, loves lots of attention. We love him!

Richard Watson is an amateur ODE rider who has been happily , and safely , competing at B E affilliated Intro & pre-Novice level events since 2004 with two smashing Irish Sports Horses which he keeps at his yard near Thirsk . He has been tooled up and trained to event by Helen Bell more or less from scratch . Richard was just past the first flush of youth when he started riding , and for a few years hunted hard every winter & hacked round Ribston Park every summer . When he asked Helen to train him to compete at ODEs he had never done anything like that and his horses were not suitable . Blondie , the eye-catching skewbald Helen sourced from ireland . Timmy , the grey with illustrious show-jumping grand-parents was picked out & bought in Ireland also under Helens guidance . Both horses have required and at the same time afforded an advance in Richard's riding skills but here Helen has helped with training sessions which Richard still attends regularly as he seeks to progress and improve . Fo him to go Novice is now an achievable goal rather than a dream .

Hello Helen,

It has been a year since we bought Quincey from you and I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures. Emily has competed at local level this summer and has a board of rosettes in her bedroom. He has been a fantastic pony for her, absolutely reliable, totally bombproof with enough scope for her to grow in confidence and performance. He was a star at PC Camp this summer.

I have have broken him to drive as well - was he broken to harness in Ireland I wonder - he was so good to lunge, long rein and put to. Emily has great fun free-lunging him which he really enjoys.

He has proven to be a spectacular family pony: in the school, on the road, out hacking, on the beach, in harness and at shows. I know that he has the potential to perform at much higher levels than he has done so far, but both he and Emily enjoy life together and I feel that is more important than justing proving his worth in the show ring.

I shall try and get some good xc jumping pictures to send for your site sometime.

Many thanks - I don't need to recommend you to anyone as Quincey does that for you!
