It’s with great regret that I am going to have to cancel the challenge award event tomorrow !!

I’ve been inundated with people wanting to come which is excellent and shows the demand for information on these great challenge awards but unfortunately Ive had a bit of a silly tumble off a horse last night, the CT scan is all clear but I am still in hospital just as a precaution and to try and get on top of the pain .....although I’m determined to be home later !!
I just cannot foresee me being fit to do anything for a day or two 😞 I’m so, so sorry everyone but I will replan it as soon as possible !! Massive apologies.......

Oh dear it’s bed bath time 🙈

BEF Futurity Eventing Finals 2013

The KBIS British Eventing Young Horse Championships at Osberton played host to the Baileys Horse Feeds/ British Breeding/BEF Futurity Eventing Championship finals this month, with breeders travelling to the Nottingham venue to showcase their young horses.

Top scorers from the eventing section of this year’s BEF Futurity evaluations were invited to the Championship to compete in the finals judged by International showing and dresage judge Judy Bradwell and BE Accredited Coach Christie Wright.

The horses who qualified for the championships did so by being in the top 10 of their age groups and also by scoring 85% or above at the BEF Futurity Evaluations, held at fifteen venues throughout the UK this year. The Evaluations aim to identify young British bred sports horses or ponies destined for careers in endurance, eventing, show-jumping, dressage or eventing and may even find the Olympic stars of the future.

The twenty-three entries appearing at the championships this year were divided into four classes; foals, yearlings, two-year-olds and three-year-olds. The first and second placed horses from each class then qualified for the grand championship, held in the Main Arena.

Samantha York’s home bred two year old colt, Oakring Santino (pictured) was awarded the champion title having qualified at the Arena UK Futurity evaluation where he received a higher first premium.

Samantha said, “I am absolutely chuffed, he is such a lovely boy and a third generation homebred. He received a higher first premium of 8.80 at the Arena UK Futurity which I was a little disappointed with. He just didn’t show off his phenomenal walk, I think the atmosphere got to him. However, at Osberton he was brilliant and really showed off his true potential”.

Oakring Santino is by Sandreo, out of a mare by The Outlaw, Its Sod’s Law. Its Sod’s Law evented to Novice level before a field injury put paid to a career competing. Samantha said, “She is a stunning mare and also competed in dressage at elementary and medium level”. Samantha who is a British Eventing coach and a lecturer in Equine at Nottingham Trent University plans to bring Oakring Santino back to the Futurity in 2014 and then pursue an eventing career with him. She added, “I have evented up to three star level and plan to produce and compete Oakring Santino myself”.

The BEF Futurity Evaluations were held at 15 venues throughout the UK and young horses go home with a BEF Premium (grade), a stylish rosette and a detailed, informative score sheet. An attractive certificate to keep and frame follows on after the event. All results are published on the fully searchable Futurity site.

BEF Breeding Futurity Championships 2013 at

Osberton International Horse Trials

The Baileys sponsored BEF Futurity Championship finalists at Osberton (3rd October) saw a strong line-up with influential breeder Vincent ‘Vin’ Jones  taking two of the top spots with his Preci Spark progeny whilst Grafenstolz was a popular sire of choice across the classes.

The overall champion was two year old stallion, Oakring Santino owned and bred by Sam York. The striking SHB (GB) registered black stallion is by Sandreo out of Its Sods Law (by Criminal Law) whilst Vincent Jones’ foal class winner, Trewitten took the reserve Champion title. The SHB registered bay filly was bred in Leicestershire and is by Hand in Glove out of Treswigga (by Welton Crackerjack).
