Newoak saw 6 homebred ponies along with Bojangles qualifying for HOYS, first off we were delighted to be informed that we had won The Leading Breeder of the Year award for the 3rd time since its creation in 2012 just to be in the running is an achievement.
Then the week just continued to get better with Newoak Designer Edition winning the M&M FR piloted by Amelia Lockhart this was the pairs first year off the rein, Amelia and Dez are coached at home by big sister Kirsty Lockhart who also rode for the Stud as a child, Newoak Furious was not to be outdone in the Open Small Breeds standing top of a strong line up Ridden and produced by Sam Roberts. A week of dreams coming true is all that can be said, now for a peaceful winter to get ready for next season.
Furious finished the outdoor shows standing Champion at Romsey Show.
We have had a busy year with 9 foals and running 3 stallions for next season batch Newoak Prosper, Lickfolds Snowstorm and Danbury Down Democrat
What a year Newoak Furious is having 1st and Res Olympia Champion @ Royal Windsor, 1st Inhand & Ridden Devon County, 1st HOYS Qualifier Three Counties also Qualified RIHS. Our thanks go to Sam Roberts and her team for doing such an amazing job with him, roll on the rest of the year.
Cadlandvalley Mr Bojangles is having a super season both in the Open Classes and Junior Ridden having qualified for both at RIHS and Juniors @ HOYS our thanks go to Sarah Parker and team for producing him so beautifully.
Newoak Blizzard is proving what an amazing temperament Dartmoors have by taking everything in his stride at his first ever show where he stood 2nd in a strong Novice LR class at NPS area 10 kindly Ridden by Maisie Brailey and lead by Stud Groom Jamie Densham.
Newoak Designer Edition has easily made the transition into FR from LR with jockey Milly Lockhart, Milly who is no longer lead by big sister Kirsty is flying high after qualifying RIHS & HOYS both on their first attempt. Kirsty still continues to coach the pair and is never very far away to make sure Milly hasn't disappeared into a sweetie shop with Dezzy, the cheeky duo have a special bond and have been together for 5 years.
2017 has started with a bang with many Newoak Ponies out competing after a good winters rest below are a selection of ponies who will hopefully have a successful and fun season
I thought i would share this lovely letter i received from the owner of Newoak Gold Rush Sara Cotton who's daughter Daisy obviously has a special bond with him
He is an absolute dream pony, such a sweet boy inside and out and we all love him. We call him "Alero" at home as it means Grace of the land and all good things to,He always gives Daisy 110% and has the biggest heart Everyone falls in love with him wherever we go, he's a real head turner (& he knows it )
He always finds himself competing up against the big horses but takes it in his strideusually leading them around warm up when they are being naughty!.They were one of the smallest and youngest combinations at Summerhouse this week but were placed 1st in every U25 section and secured 6th place in Elementary 59 and 3rd in the freestyle with some extremely tough competition
It has been a truly amazing journey over the past three years, going from Prelim to Medium, qualifying every year for the Areas, U25's and Regionals with ease. They have such a beautiful partnership which is constantly commented on by the judges . He is quite simply our "Chocolate Boy”
BD have confirmed they wish to offer Daisy Cotton and Newoak Gold Rush a wildcard for the Novice FSM NAF 5 Star Winter Dressage Championship at Hartpury!! Woohoo ... Couldn't be prouder of my Munchies ?
Newoak Honeymoon (far right) just proves how versatile these fantastic ponies are he happily goes from the show ring to the hunting field and open Moorland.
Newoak Skyfall a true Show Hunter Pony with all the quality and presents of the Show Pony dam and substance & heart from the Dartmoor sire, these crosses can turn a hoof to anything.
