Britannia's Mail showing off at the weekend with Lucinda and Ellie.
We had a brilliant day on Sunday at the Competition Stallions show. Britannia's Mail (Marley) was, as always, immaculately behaved both in and out of the stable, looked fabulous, showed off beautifully and delighted the crowd when Ellie jumped on half way through his display to take Marley over the jumps, including a 1.3m oxer.
It's definitely a great feeling to see my 14 yr old daughter and my home bred advanced Event Stallion have some fun and be confident and safe together. Throughout the day we had some wonderful positive comments about Marley's temperament, healthy condition, strong feet, correct confirmation and friendliness. And it was fantastic to meet so many happy customers who already have sons and daughters from Marley and even some coming back for round two!
Britannia's Mail (Marley) will be on display at 11.10am. Come and see us in the arena or in the stables from 9.30am.
Marley (as he is known to his friends...) is fed Pure Feed.
Feeding for foals, broodmares and stallions can seem confusing. If you aren't sure what to feed why not contact our nutritional team for advice.

Had a really busy day at the NSEA schools qualifier at WWEC on Saturday with Ellie riding 4 horses in 6 classes around 5 different courses. Started with Chris Emmett’s lovely grey mare Elzy jumping a fast clear to help the Dauntsey’s team to finish 3rd from 20 teams in the 90cm class. Next was the 100m where Shrimp, who was very happy to be outside, jumped a super clear giving their team a place at the Hickstead Final in August.
Then it was Marleys turn in the biggest SJ cl...ass of the day, the 110. They both flew around beautifully- Marley happily taking charge- but just rolled one pole missing out on a place.
Then it was inside for the busy arena eventing where tight turns and an optimum time would win the class. Bridget Hall’s Moley was foot perfect finishing a super 6th from 72 starters in the 95cm and then went a lot quicker in the last class on the day but two poles pushed him down the order.
Marley had been a total gentleman and waited patiently for his 2nd round and had a great time bringing Ellie safely home over a mixture of 17 jumps tipping just one rail.
Thank you to Karen Smith [Shrimp], Bridget and Chris and the Marley syndicate for their lovely horses. Well done Ellie for remembering 5 different courses [and her stickability!], Alex for helping me all day and Jess, Oceane and Libby for sorting everything out at Rosegarth.
Horses all great thanks to Pure Feed, Devacoux, HRP, Free Jump and Gatehouse.
