Show Name: Six For Gold Stable Name: Ellie Age: 7 years old Height: 15.3 About: Ellie is our first homebred event horse, so we're extremely excited to have her as an active member of the team now. She is the 6th foal out of Mum's best national hunt mare and is by Jumbo. It seems Ellie has been on the planet before, she certainly has an old head on young shoulders. She completed her first CCI* in style last season (2017), and this year will be looking to step up to Intermediate.
Show Name: Out Of Touch II Stable Name: Sooty Age: 17 years old Height: 17.1 About: Sooty has been with us for 2 seasons now, during which time he has been given the title 'The Bucket List Horse' as he continues to help me tick things off! 2017 saw us fly around our first Advanced at the Festival of British Eventing, and then our first CIC*** at Blair Castle. This horse really is a legend in his own right and I owe him everything!
Show Name: Redwood Autumn Stable Name: Woody Age: 6 years old Height: 16.2 About: Woody, or 'Pecker' to his friends, is a young horse that I am extremely excited about. He has his quirks but his talent is exceptional and I can't wait to see how he progresses in his eventing career. He's settled in really well on the Farm and has come into his own now, particularly across the country!
Show Name: Dunno Fear Stable Name: Dell Boy Age: 11 years old Height: 16.1 About: We have owned Dell since he was a 5 year old, he was produced by Polly Williamson for a season and I then took over the ride in the Winter of 2011. Since winning the Open Eventing Pony Club Championships in 2012 we have come on along way with Dell taking me around my first CIC** at Barbury Castle last season.
Show Name: The Mayfair Mutiny Stable Name: Dizzy Age: 4 years old Height: 15.2 About: Dizzy is another of our homebreds. She is out of my beloved Pony Club mare, Daisy, and is the most wonderful character; kind, intelligent and talented. Unfortunately she will be for sale soon since I won't have time to produce her while I'm at university but I am in no doubt that she has a very bright future ahead of her.
Show Name: Scotfree II Stable Name: Mickey Age: 12 years old Height: 16.2 About: Mickey, most commonly known as 'The Moose,' is a real character. With an unfortunate tendency to annoy everyone incessantly on the yard his life expectancy is sometime questioned...thankfully he is pretty talented so he's still hanging on in there! After having a cracking 2015 season we are aiming at consolidating his form at Intermediate level this year.
Stable Name: Fidget Age: 8 years old Height: 15.0 About: The gorgeous Fidget is the perfect example of the wide variety of horses we have here at Team Temple. Owned by Marie-Louise Leschallas, she is in to be schooled into the perfect hunter before the season starts - she will also be trying her hand at Inter-Hunt Relay this year!
Show Name: Killacoran Blue Stable Name: Toddy Height: 14.2 About: The main man! We competed at 2 Europeans together, finishing 12th and 14th respectively. This guy really did mean the world to me. He taught me everything and I enjoyed every second that I had the pleasure of competing him – it has truly been an honour to have been part of his competitive career.
Show Name: Barana Snow Stable Name: Jimmy Height: 14.2 About: I produced Jimmy from a 4 year old, we went up the levels to finally compete at CCNP2** level as well as finishing in the top 20 at the National Pony Trial Championships at Brand Hall in 2012; it was an absolutely amazing feeling to have gotten a pony to that level having made him myself! He was sold to the lovely Holly Needham in the winter of 2012, with whom he has been very successful.

Show Name: Borne Again Stable Name: Reebee Age: 19 years old Height: 16.2 About: Reebee was a real sweetheart, he’d ‘been there and got the t-shirt’ and did his part in teaching me a trick or 2 around some bigger tracks.
