For the second time this week, we visited The Three Counties showground, which
is always a favourite venue with the beautiful Malvern Hills as its backdrop.
Paddock Marquis finished 1st and Champion Section B, qualifying him for the
preliminary judging of the Cuddy, which was held during the afternoon. After
giving a fabulous performance, Marquis was selected as part of the final
lineup and went through to the final judging, held under spotlights during the
evening….Although Champion and Reserve were the only ones to be placed,
Marquis, as always gave an impeccable performance and displayed what a true
showman he is!

We were delighted to hear news of Westaire Galaxy (aka Syd) by Stoak Tyrol x
Cottrell Gwener and his very talented young rider, Freya Messling.
Having sold Galaxy as a foal, we had lost touch with his whereabouts until he was
spotted in the dressage results in Horse & Hound, having won the Prelim Gold
at Harolds Park Farm. After contacting his owners, it was a lovely surprise to learn
that he is doing so well and being enjoyed by his new jockey. I think its quite clear
to see from the photos that Freya and Syd have a very special friendship!
