Kizzie is a 2016 bay mare by Timpex Karmizi out of a Voltaire mare. She came to Kate's at the end of the 2020 season to be broken in and start being produced. We're very excited to see what the future holds for this young talent!
It was a first and second today at Offbury Church with Emma Hazell’s Ultravox and Molly in the 90.
Huge thanks to Llyod and the Land's Eventing team for managing to run in the conditions. Great outing despite the weather!
First up Moreton Morrell novice with KEC Delicate Girl (Delphi) and Hazard Z (Harry). Delphi had a little ‘moment’ in the dressage coming back from her left medium canter which she struggles with. A shame after doing a super test for the rest of it. Harry doing a lovely test but had an uncharacteristic two rails. Both went steadily xc but put in faultless performances. So really good consolidating runs for both of them.
On to Cirencester UA with the two young mares. Don’t Look Back (Molly) did a 31 test and double clear to finish 4th. Now placed in 3 out of 4 of her first events. Clever girl. Meridianway Pride’s Princess did another very solid test for 33. 1 unlucky rail and a green stop xc at a spooky bright blue wagon off a turn. But she is definitely going in the right direction and making progress, hugely helped by the Cool, Calm & Collected supplement from EquiFeast UK
What a great, if pretty busy (!) few days competing!
First was West Wilts on Friday with the two 6YO mares, KEC Delicate Girl and Milchem Sea Breeze. They both put in very solid performances for their second Novice outings - finishing just outside the top 10. Clever girls!
Then onto the stunning Cornbury House Horse Trials (wow what an amazing new venue) with the bay boy team in the novice class.
A huge team effort to get organised across the three days and thank you to everyone who made it possible and to all the great event teams. Happy horses and happy rider!
We had a brilliant couple of days at Wellington International Horse Trials with the team.
The mares were first up in the BE105. Milchem Sea Breeze continued her run of good form to pick up 10th and KEC Delicate Girl jumped a classy double clear.

Then we were back Tuesday with the bay boy team in the Novice. They were both fantastic with Hazard Z impressing again at this level, adding just 0.4 time faults to his 30.7 dressage to finish 4th. Piccolo V was brilliant in all three phases posting a 26.8 and adding nothing to finish second.
A huge thanks to the team at Wellington for putting on a great event!
Another successful day for the team at West Wilts yesterday.
Don't Look Back (Molly) was at her second event and went even better than her debut at Waverton to post a 29 dressage score and double clear to come 4th!
It was great to ride the lovely Dernahatten Oak for the Ashfield family. He was on great form and FOD for 5th.
Next stop this weekend is Wellington with KEC Delicate Girl and Mechilam Sea Breeze on the Saturday and Piccolo V and Hazard Z on the Tuesday.
Yesterday saw the three bay boys contend the Novice class at Aston le Walls in the super warm sunshine.
Hazard Z was a total megastar at his first run at this level. Jumping an easy double clear with just a time of 0.8 to finish on 30.8 for 4th!
Piccolo V was on top form, putting in a very assured double clear. No prizes thanks to a flock of geese taking off causing a slight "moment" in dressage.
Last but my no means least, Meridianway Ramzes Boy had a great run with Matt Heath and finished 4th.
An excellent day and thank you to Aston for putting on a great event. The team had done a fab job with the ground and the new showjumping site on grass with a smart ring new fence worked really well.
A great day at Solihull with both 6YOs smashing their first Novice.
KEC Delicate Girl put in a lovely 30 test and a double clear for 4th place.
Milchem Sea Breeze had a couple green moments in her test and a few time faults but again double clear to finish 9th.
What a way to start their Novice careers for all 3 horses stepping up in the last week. The future is bright!
