Tizi Ouzuo has now had her second foal, a lovely little colt called "Ozzie", born in April 2008.  The cheeky little chap looks very well and is growing up fast as you can see in the picture below with his doting Mum.

Leanne, aged 14, has sent us some pictures of Sir Lunchalot who used to be in training at Pond House. Sir Lunchalot or Harry as he is now known has been with Leanne since May 2007.  Leanne looks forward to doing more local shows and just enjoying life with Harry. He has given her so much confidence in jumping and is a real gentleman who always looks after her.  We all wish them the best of luck together.

Fabulon & Flawed Logic


Fabulon is still going strong and getting better and better with his owner/rider Sophie. And Flawed Logic, also 17 years old now, still does the odd bit of eventing when the ground suits him.  They all look great and seem to be loving their new careers.

Mariday has recently retired from racing.  His new owner Kelly has sent us this picture of her riding him in his new home.

Zeta's River hunting

Since retiring from racing Zeta's River has gone to live with our Equine America sales representative Matt.  Matt and Zeta's River whip in for their local hunt and Zeta loves his new job.  You can see in the picture below how well he looks.

We have just been sent some more photos of Doualago who has been doing very well in his eventing career.  Over the last couple of years he has competed at Chatsworth International Novice, Gatcombe International and at Barbury Castle International.  He was awarded his first British Eventing affiliation point last year when he was placed 9th in the Novice at Allerton Park.  As you can see from the photos he looks very well and seems to be enjoying his new job.

‘Cyfor’ enjoys his retirement close to the yard in the care of former head lad Dennis Dummett and his partner Norma where he spent most of his time with the late Miinnehoma.  Winner of a hurdle race and 2 chases in France before he joined Pond House Cyfor Malta went on to become one of the best chasers the yard has ever had.  He won the Cathcart, John Hughes and Murphy’s Gold Cup in 1998 before winning the Pillar chase in 1999.  Despite some injury setbacks he won another big handicap chase at Newbury and then the Thomas Pink Gold Cup at Cheltenham in 2002.  He was placed in several other top races and did connections proud.  A truly great horse of his generation.


‘Miinne’ won the 1994 Grand National for his owner Liverpool comedian Freddie Starr and provided Richard Dunwoody with his second winner in the great race.  He beat Just So in a thrilling finish.  Miinnehoma was the winner of 11 of his 26 career starts including the Sun Alliance novices chase at Cheltenham, the Newton chase at Haydock and of course the Grand National.  He also finished placed on a further 7 occasions including 3rd in the 1995 Cheltenham Gold Cup.  He was a huge celebrity and enjoyed annual trips to Aintree for the Grand National winner’s parade where he was one of the main draws.  Sadly Miinnehoma passed away peacefully in July 2012 after a long and happy retirement - he was 29 years old.
