Tom & Ellie

Tom Miller and my stunning silver bay 4 year old filly, Donabi UK Star Spangled Elegance, have a very special connection together and have excelled in the show ring this season.

They began with the first BMHS Show of 2014 at Stretcholt, by winning a big class and qualifying for this year's RIHS Final. it has been impossible for me to show my horses this year, I am immensely grateful to Tom Miller who has excelled in the show ring for me with my horses. He began with the first BMHS Show of Tom and Ellie' went on to even better things at the last BMHS show of the season, the BMHS Breed Championships. They started with their first class of the day the HOYS qualifier - which they WON, and went on to be Champion of all the HOYS classes. They then went on to WIN their second class in the afternoon for mares, and a Qualifier for 2015 RIHS, and also took that overall Championship. In the evening they were eligible for the 'Grand Champion' class for all of the day's champions - which they WON and were GRAND CHAMPION, and then the final event of the evening the CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS Class, eligible to the BMHS Champions at shows throughout the season.....and they were crowned SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION of 2014. W O W !!! A feat which we believe is unprecedented, being unbeaten on the day in each Championship. It was also pretty amazing to qualify for HOYS and RIHS on the same day - they are a very special partnership.

Tom is a charming, dedicated, extremely capable young man, at a standard way above his 15 years of age! I am so grateful to him.

More success for this very beautiful filly !


Ellie started the year in the winning vein with a first at the Royal Cornwall Show, in June, and with limited showing was regularly highly placed. Next year I plan to cover her, and hopefully look forward to her producing a beautiful baby. Ellie comes from a particularly strong female line that produces beautiful, elegant offspring with exquisite heads, so 2015 to look forward to.


Ellie is continuing her successful show ring career in 2012, now as a 2 year old, being in the ribbons at all four county shows to date that she has been shown in. She has been particularly consistent in the two large HOYS qualifying classes to date, with a 2nd at Bath & West and 3rd at Three Counties - so trying hard to win the coveted HOYS ticket.

One of our most exciting HOYS Qualifer wins ever at the New Forest Show on 27 July 2011, as 'Ellie' is my first with the Donabi UK prefix to gain a place in the coveted HOYS lineup. On top of winning a large 1 & 2 Year old class, Ellie also went on to become Reserve Champion, with the Judge's comments that
"She is an exquisite filly".

Our beautiful, elegant yearling filly Donabi UK Star Spangled Elegance, daughter of Faith Farms Wind of the Spirit, made a winning debut at her first show, also taking Reserve Champion American Miniature Horse...........now having won a Championship at Taunton in BMHS unaffiliated classes and WINNER of the Yearling class at The Royal Cornwall Show on 11th June 2011.
