Open Day thanks

Last Sunday we held our Autumn Open Day and Foal Showcase at Horse Creek Farm. The weather held in our favor and we had a wonderful day. We were overwhelmed by the amount of support that the day had and the number of people who came to watch us demonstrate this fantastic breed.

We would like to thank all of our spectators and everyone who has posted photos on Facebook and sent us messages of feedback and thanks – we really do appreciate it.

We would also like to thank our invaluable grooms Sarah Tibbles and Shane Tibbles who worked tirelessly to ensure the horses and the venue looked beautiful on the day. Thanks should also go to Olivia who made a great riding debut with us.

 

We pride ourselves in being at the forefront of promoting the American Quarter Horse – a breed we believe to be the perfect horse. We thoroughly enjoyed demonstrating what these horses can do for you and hope you did too.

As a token of our thanks we have uploaded a selection of photos from the day, on our Sovereign Quarter Horses Facebook Page, taken by three wonderful photographers Sandra Mortlock, Shaun Ward and Clive Turner who have done a fantastic job of capturing the day. Do check these photos out, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

The Sovereign Team x

Welcome Olivia Lochhead to the SQH Team !

We are delighted to announce that Olivia Lockhead has become the newest member of the Sovereign Team. She is joining us as our assistant horse trainer, working alongside David and Sarah, riding our youngsters and finished horses.

Olivia started riding when she was 2 years old, initially in English disciplines but was converted to Western when she was introduced to her first Quarter Horse CB Hollywood Redgold, who she started at the age of 12.

She has been showing in WES competitions for the last 5 years and in AQHA competitions since 2015. This year she represented Great Britain in the Youth World Cup in Australia in Ranch Riding, Showmanship and Horsemanship. Many thanks to the Youth team coach Charlene Carter for her glowing recommendation.

 

Those of you who attended our Open Day would have seen Olivia make her fantastic riding debut for Sovereign, and we are looking forward to this long term partnership. We hope that you will welcome Olivia into the Sovereign fold.
