So, here we are at the start of the Jumps Season and Naranja (Black Sam Bellamy x Full of Fruit) is now back in full training with Jamie Snowden at Folly House, Lambourn.  We watched her schooling a couple of weeks ago and eagerly look forward to her first outing.Naranja schooling-21 Sept 2017-2 Naranja schooling-21 Sept 2017

Our Filly, Ballymilan (Milan x Ballyhoo), has recently come back home from her time at ‘Prep School’ with Roger and Christine Wernham and  L & B Equine Services where she was backed and ridden away. She will now have a break while we decide on the next phase of her education.

Time to say ‘goodbye’ to our two foals, Freddie (Yeats x Ballyhoo) and Buzz (Telescope x Lecon Benefique) as they left us to travel to Ballincurrig House Stud for their pre-sales preparation for the Tattersalls November NH Sales.

Thanks to the men from Ballinroe Horse Transport who did a sterling job getting the 2 foals loaded up and to their destination safe and happy.
