Gearing up for 2021 and Hildare Stud Joins the Team

Apologies for the lack of updates. 2020 was certainly a peculiar and challenging year for everyone ourselves included but we made it through and had plenty of exciting developments along the way!

One of the main things to come out of last year was the exciting addition of a number of rides to the FHE team owned by Anna and Hugh Sims-Hilditch from Hildare Stud. Anna and Hugh own a number of talented prospects and we have spent the winter getting to know them all and adding some lovely youngsters to their string – the Hildare Stud horses include:

4yo MGH Hildare Harlequin – “Harley”

5yo Hildare Falcon – “Falcon”

6yo Cooley Hildare Osiris – “Osiris”

6yo SM Quentin – “Ronnie”

6yo Toffy-Fee – “Toffy”

11yo Billy Orinoco – “Orio”

We are so pleased to welcome Anna, Hugh and their lovely team of staff and horses and we are busy planning their 2021 seasons.

All of the horses are feeling well and we’ve made the most of this lockdown period training hard and really focussing on developing each horse individually. We’ve been very lucky more recently to be able to get and and about XC schooling and have just entered our first “Elite” event at Cirencester with Billy Orinoco.

Its been a tough few months so I want to say a huge thank you to our wonderful owners for sticking with it and being so patient when no-one has been able to come and visit their horses – and another huge thank you to our wonderful team who’ve stayed so positive and worked so tirelessly to keep everything going so well and smoothly.

Looking forward to an exciting season ahead!
