Sire: Distant Dancer
Claife Dream Flight -

Dam: Miss Mill

16.2 ¾ TB x ¼ ID 1996

Lilly has had a very successful career in eventing and dressage, she has also done well in Sport Horse showing. Following injury she has now retired to stud, she has 2 lovely grey colts who have both gone to competition homes. She has now gone on loan to The Newmarket Foster Mare Company, she has already successfully fostered a lovely bay TB colt and is in foal to their Black TB stallion Arnie de Burgh.




Sire: Westpark Edition
Buckland Oliver

Dam: Lakehead Emina

41" Stallion 1994

We were really lucky to find Ollie at Reading sales in October 2006, although we did have some explaining to do to Alan on the way home, but he forgave us as soon as he saw Ollie come down the ramp! He has had a storming season in hand in both Shetland and Mixed M&M classes with 15 x 1st, 2 x Supreme Champion including Kent County, 5 x Res Supreme including Royal Norfolk, 12 Chamionships and 5 Res Championships - and 2 photos in H&H. He is 16 now although he doesn't think so - and is competing in VHS classes as well.


Sire: Earnbrig Reynard
Waulkmill Redstart -

Dam: Waulkmill Swallow

41 ½" gelding 2003

We were lucky enough to be able to buy Red at weaning from his breeder Roweena Provan, having always admired his sire. He has not disappointed, with his terrific bone and huge movement he has had an excellent in-hand career and since licenced, has produced 2 lovely filly foals in 2007 and 2 super colts in 2008.

He has had many wins under saddle this year including the Kingsford final and qualifying for Olympia he is also jumping novice WHP.


Sire: Mill of Towie Scotsman
Klingrahoull Cavalier -

Dam: Waterloo Christine

39" Stallion 2005

Clive was bred on the islands, and due to one of the wettest stormiest winters they have had for years, couldn't get him off until the following May, by which time us in the softy south, were in the middle of one of the hottest heatwaves we have had for years. Poor boy - he had such a thick coat and was really suffering so all we could do was clip him - quick. 

He has only been shown lightly and had a couple of outings each year, winning on all occasions and gaining Junior Champion twice at the Royal Berkshire and Res Junior Champion at the Autumn Shetland Show and also Reserve Champion Coloured at NPS.  He has two lovely fillies from his first crop.


Sire: Hose Voyage
Claife Vulcan -

Dam: Seawood Vanity Fair

38" colt 2007

Spock is DV's 1/2 brother although the mares are reasonably closely related.  They are like 2 peas out of a pod and almost inseperable.  We think Spock will end up slightly bigger than DV, he is a real character and always into mischief, like loading himself into the lorry when you aren't looking! Although Spock has only been lightly shown up until this year, he has had some excellent results including 1st 3 year old at the International Breed show, 1st Suffolk County and 1st and Junior Champion East Anglian Natives.

Lady J

Sire: Goldcrest of Drakelaw
Claylands Lady Jeanette -

Dam: Claylands Candy

40" mare 1999, bred by Mr. M. Arden

Lady J has done extremely well in-hand showing, she has been Champion at East Anglian Natives, NPS Summer Championships, Reserve Supreme Hadleigh, M&M Champion Woodbridge and many, many more. She can also go very nicely under saddle - when she feels like it!  She had a super skewbald filly to Clive this year.


Sire: Hose Voyage
Claife Voyager -

Dam: Thrandeston Moonwalker

39" Colt 2006

The first foal of our return to breeding, DV had a rough arrival, complications during pregnancy and a rush to Newmarket saw him being born at a The Middleton Stud on the Hamilton road in Newmarket along with a lot of very posh Thoroughbred babies, but guess who got all the visitors!

Christened DV (Darth Vader) by the girls on the stud, he is by Hose Voyage and this year he has had a fantastic time at the shows with 8 x 1st including winning the 1,2,3 year old class at the Royal Norfolk, the youngstock class at Royal Windsor and 3 Reserve Championships. He has now passed his stallion inspection and is on covering duties this year.



Sire: Clandon Poirot
Clandon Duke of Marlborough -

Dam: Clandon Truly Scrumptious

13.2 stallion 2003, bred by Mrs. S. Smalldridge-Clark

We took one look at Tommy at 3 weeks old and fell in love with him, in his first season showing as a three year old he has did very well, he has now passed his stallion inspection. He has done well in ridden novice classes this year and is now coming out to compete Dressage this winter. Not particularly a Highland name? - well as he hadn't been registered when we bought him, Sue Clark asked us to name him, so he is named after the pub which is next door to his stable.

He is now registered with British Dressage and has his first affiliated points.


Sire: Whitefield Sargeant Major
Moss-side Holly Dhu -

Dam: Whitefield Lady Verona

14hh mare bred by W & J Ralston

We were thrilled when the Ralston's let us have Holly as a wife for Tommy. She is beautifuly bred, and Jean felt she would benefit from the more intimate contact of a small yard rather than running in a herd. Jean was right, Holly loves it, she walked off the lorry and into her stable as if she owns the place. She has a lovely gentle temperament and has bred a super colt this year. We have shown her a few times, she won and was Reserve Champion at South of England, 3rd and top Highland at Royal Norfolk and 1st and Champion Highland at Kent County to name a few.
