We are very excited to welcome Jane Steeples from the Morry Stud as one of the Horslyx Ambassadors.
“I am delighted to join the Horslyx team for 2014, together with my husband Paul we show Mountain and Moorland ponies, Fells, Highlands and Welsh Section D’S. Paul and I show our ponies in-hand and we are very lucky to have Tammy Bell Heather ride our ponies under saddle.”
“We had an excellent season last year and were extremely pleased with our youngsters, especially Greenholne Georgy Girl, a yearling Fell filly who took the NPS Silver medal at Ashbourne show. We also decided to have a go at Veteran classes and on our first attempt fifteen year old Lunesdale Eliza took the Veteran Championship and then the Supreme in-hand at Leek Agricultural show. Morry Imari (Mabel) a homebred Section D, ridden by Tammy, accumulated 8 champions including Champion Area XI qualifying for Olympia, 2 NPS silver medals, 2 reserve Supreme Championships and a fantastic BSPS champs with 3 firsts and reserve supreme blue premier league. To finish the year we had the most amazing time at Olympia, Mabel was a star.”
“We have just started to prepare our show team for this year. One of our senior fell mares has already been out, Foggy Gill Gemma, who is a seven year old, and she took the Reserve Supreme at NCPA Staffs. Lunesdale Eliza will be campaigning in the Veterans again this year. Our two year old Highland filly Whitefield Princess Una will be coming in soon to continue with her already successful showing career, she started as Champion Mountain and Moorland foal at the British National Foal Show 2011 and has been in the Ribbons ever since. Mabel will be out again with Tammy and we also have two lovely Fells mares under saddle this year, so we are all very excited and can’t wait to see them in the ring.”
“None of our ponies have been purchased “ready-made”. They have either come to us as foals, been homebred or in the case of Murthwaite Sarah and Foggy Gill Gemma, who came to us as unhandled five and six year olds, straight off the Cumbrian Fells. We do have the odd hair raising moment but find that unhandled ponies, especially foals, with a little patience and good routines settle in very quickly and are so willing to learn producing well-mannered, confident ponies, who are a joy to show.”
