Oct 5th: Today it was shown that jumping indoors holds no worries for Mister Lettery (Dino). He jumped two lovely rounds at Barton Equestrian Centre, lancashire, UK, picking up both his novice and restricted qualifications, qualifying for the finals at the BSPS Winter Championships.  Well done to all involved. 

Sept 28th: 'Clareville Lunar Eclipse' is awarded Class 1 Status at his grading today in Clifden :)  This is the 3rd Class 1 Stallion we have bred from his dam 'Nessa'.  We hope he follows in the footsteps of his older brothers, stallions: 'Libero Justice' and 'Prince Nestor' and geldings: 'Nessa's Hazy Daze' & 'Mister Lettery'.


Sept 26th: Congratulations to Prince Nestor and Team Valley View





Sept 22nd:  Deeeeeeeeeelighted to say the least!!! Thank you to Charlotte who always does a wonderful job turning him out and a tremendous job riding Finn today to win all 4 of his classes which included 'Show Hunter pony', Riding Club pony' and WHP.
The judge said "I love this pony, if he was a mare he'd be coming home with me" "sturdy and a really nice stamp"....I am just so proud.
