September 2015

Firecrest C was a superstar at her first HOYS. She was unplaced but belied her 4 years and looked very professional. She and Caitlin look fabulous together.

It was so lovely to see her again having not seen her since she left us a year ago having just graded with the Oldenburg. She was unbroken when she joined Julie Templeton Show Team and I was so very proud of what she and Caitlin have achieved.

St Nazaire C
(Samaii - Arpeggio - Polany)

St Nazaire is now a Licensed Stallion with the AES.

This is his dam Florida E's 3rd graded son. Wiarpo (Wind Dancer) is Hunter Jumping in the USA and Sir Cisco (Sancisco) was 6th Place in the 5 year old Eventers at the Bundeschampionate in 2011. She also has numerous Graded daughters.

St Nazaire C was bred by Camrose Stud and owned by Team Bates.

Sambertino at 22 years old showing that he is still Number 1 at Camrose Stud!

Ella's first ride on him and you can tell from her smile that it was just as good as she imagined.

Fallen Leaf C
(Christian - Sir Oldenburg - Arpeggio)
2013 Oldenburg filly

Having been semi-feral all summer, Fallen Leaf came in for a bit of civilisation and a tidy up.

We are really looking forward to her turning 3 years old next year - exciting times ahead!

Fliegerin C
(Los Angeles - Arpeggio - Polany)
2014 Oldenburg filly

Being a yearling is never the greatest look, particulary when you are huge like Fliegerin.  She will eventually grow into her huge frame and I think there will be a beautiful swan that will emerge eventually?!

The Three Musketeers!

The hunters are back in work getting ready for the season ahead.

Cromwell C (Check In - Arpeggio) at the BEF Futurity. He scored 8.75 and awarded a Higher First Premium. He headed the 2 year old Eventing Section and second highest Eventer of the day at Catherston.

He is owned by Katrina Cox who also has his older half sister Firebird C (Stravinsky xx).

The lovely Firebird C (Stravinsky xx - Arpeggio) with her owner Katrina Cox thoroughly enjoying themselves a cross country!

Firebird is our 2007 home-bred filly who Katrina bought as a yearling.

Tjhe Oldenburg  Verband visited Sycamore Farm again this year as we are one of the venues.  We had a total of six foals and four mares for Studbook inspection forward.

The Oldenburg team were very complimentary about both Formidable C and Fromelles C.

Formidable C was praised for her super conformation. However, she decided on this of all days to just charge around the arena showing little of her paces! She did trot sensibly around the arena after everyone had gone!

Fromelles C was awarded a Premium – the perfect bonus to a very successful day.

Firecrest C (St Moritz Junior – Arpeggio)

A lovely photo of Caitlin Galbraith and Firecrest C at the BSPA Championships.

They won the Restricted Intermediate and were overall Restricted Champion.

Louisbourg C
(Levisonn - De Niro - Lavado)
2012 Oldenburg Gelding

I went to see the lovely "Louis" last week. He has been backed and ridden away by his young owner Jack.

Having bred Louis and known Jack since he was born I couldn't have been prouder of both of them. To see such harmony and trust between the two it was truly fabulous.

Louis is now having a well earnt holiday until the New Year. Exciting times ahead when the pair of them embark on their eventing career.

Fairfax C (Sir Oldenburg - Arpeggio) our 2008 home-bred is back with us.  She is in foal for 2016 - her owner Stephanie Fitt is very excited!

The Oldenburg Verband Foal Show and Mare Grading will again be held at Sycamore Farm on Saturday 29th August at 9.00 am.

If you would like to bring a Foal, Mare or both for inspection, I would be grateful if you could let us know as soon as possible so we know how many to expect.

Look forward to seeing you bright and early!

My fellow companions on Sunday morning.

Another super write up in this week's Horse & Hound. This time it was for Firecrest C (St Moritz Junior - Arpeggio).

She is owned and fantastically produced by Julie Templeton Show Team and ridden quite beautifully by Caitlin Galbraith.

At the NCPA Staffordshire County Festival last week, Caitlin and Firecrest qualified for HOYS at their first attempt!

Another Camrose Stud baby shining bright

What a super write up and photo of Samantha Kent and Sandfontein C in this week's Horse & Hound.

I am delighted that another of my foals has gone on to shine bright

June 2015
Florida E has heartbeat scanned in foal to the fabulous young stallion Cavtat PKZ (Castellan II PKZ - Cornet Obolensky).

Cavtat PKZ was the jumping Champion at the Westphalian Stallion Licensing in 2014.

He is stationed with Rene Tebbel and is being campaigned by Maurice Tebbel.

Roll on 2016!

A bittersweet day for me as our beautiful St Nazaire C left home for his new life with Michael and Nicki Bates.

I cannot think of a more wonderful home for him to go to and I know that he will make me proud. Team Bates are going to have such fun with him.

Having never left the property before, he loaded like an angel and I have already been up-dated that he is happily munching on his hay and travelling like a dream.

Farewell but not goodbye, Mattie. See you again soon.

I am delighted to announce that St Nazaire C has been sold to Team Bates.

I couldn’t be happier that he is going to Michael and Nicki in West Sussex who offer him a fabulous home. I am very much looking forward to seeing him out in competition in the future and following his career.

A new and exciting chapter in his life begins.

We had a lovely day at Royal Ascot with Dinah's parents.

The Royal Enclosure is always a fabulous place along with drinks with friends after in Car Park 1.

Firecrest C and Caitlin made their debut in the show ring together.  They won their Novice Intermediate Show Riding type class then finished the day off well by collecting the Championship.

Firecrest C and Caitlin had their first outing together, not in the show ring but in the dressage arena - and they WON!

St Nazaire our rising 3 years old colt is maturing well.  Plans for his future are in progress.  He may be available FOR SALE to the right home.
