Shows, Shows and more Shows! (Pyecombe, Addington & Arena UK)

We have been exceedingly busy over the last month. We started the beginning of July at a 4 day show at Pyecombe where all 4 riders had success in the ring. With a total of 32 horses stabled it was a busy weekend but despite running around all our young horses manage to qualify their finals which took place on the final day of the show. Two of our 4 year olds were double clear in their finals, and 2 of our 5 years olds were also double clear. In the 6 year olds age group it was Davinci VD Bosrand and Roger who stood out from the rest.

Roger & Care For jumped clear in the main Castle Arena in a fast B&C speed class and finished in 12th, followed by Shane & Uno Du Thot who were also clear. Davinci VD Bosrand jumped an unbelievable round in the 6 Year Old Star Spotters class to finish equal first with a double clear.

For Pleasure Foal.

We are delighted to introduce our newest addition to the stud, Ringo. This strong colt was born on Tuesday night. His mother is Tosca one of our top breeding mares, Tosca had a hugely successful career with Jemma Kirk competing in numerous 150 classes until injury ended her competition career. His sire needs little introduction the great For Pleasure who won numerous team gold medals for Germany as well as numerous Grand Prix.

Hopefully Ringo has inherited his parents international jumping genes. Exciting future ahead for this colt.

First Indoor Show of the Season


The first show of the indoor season came upon us so fast. The short days are drawing in closer and closer and showing the cold of winter is coming however this does not stop the jumping commencing! Oakingham took two lorry loads to Addington Manor on Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th of October.

The End of 2015 Breeding Season

We can’t believe another season has come and gone already. The 1st Of July brought the final of Oakingham’s foals for this year bringing our total number to 21 healthy babies. It was not an easy year with changes in management however as a team we pulled through and there are some fantastic foals as a result. As a stud we are particularly proud of our mare Tricolor and her lovely Big Star filly also alongside our mare Stamira and her Zirocco Blue colt, we are extremely excited to see what the future brings for them.
