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.
is a charming, dedicated, extremely capable young man, at a standard way above
his 15 years of age! I am so grateful to him.
success for this very beautiful filly !
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.
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
"She is an exquisite filly".
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.
