Family Horses

ATHLETE (Tommy)

Tommy belongs to the Prentice family and has been based with us for 10 years. He came to us as a four year old from Tim and Antonia Brown having placed in the top few at the BYEH final at Burghley. He is affectionately known as the pink pony due to his striking colouring and is a very loveable horse to have about. He is 17.00hh and now 14 years old. Bill enjoyed lots of success with him at CCI4S* level but he’s always been fragile and the Prentices have kindly allowed Jenny to spend time finding out systems that work for him. He’s tried his hand at vaulting and as a fun horse with Jenny during several years of rehab and more recently has joined ‘team Josh’. Josh and Tommy seem to fit well together and to be having lots of fun – long may it last.

IRISH ANGEL NJ (Cassie)

Cassie is a 9-year-old, 16.2hh bay mare by Cassino, who we found at the Monart Sale in Ireland in 2013. She has a great eye and is a good model of a horse, with a kind and gentle temperament. She started her eventing career in 2015 but unfortunately had a freak accident on the walker in 2016. She now has a new competitive career, vaulting with Urssie. In her first competitive season Cassie became British Champion with children in three different categories, including with Urssie.

Uncle Austin (Aussie)

Aussie is a 9-year-old, 14.2hh blue roan gelding. He was sourced from Malvern Sales and started off very well by Kate and her daughter Millie, who we have been lucky enough to get a host of great ponies from in the past, including Peggy, Basil and CJ. He is incredibly kind and laid back, and being competed by Josh successfully at BE.

Rathmoyle King (Smarty)

Smarty is 21 years young and owned by Carolyn Ryan Bell, who has kindly loaned him to us for Josh to have some fun with and to gain more experience eventing. Smarty is an ex 4 star horse and is a legend, it’s an honour to have him in the yard. Josh is enjoying getting to know him and hoping to have fun with him this year.
