My name is Valentine and have been involved in the horse business all my life and am third generation as it happens, I have been involved in all aspects of the horse world from Donkey Derbys to Show Hunters in Dublin, Point to Pointer's to Driving. I moved to England a few years ago, to further my passion for the Show Ring and to put forward the best of Irish horses that I can find having had great sucess in Ireland, and having just finished my second season in the England to include many County Show Wins and NPS BSPA CHAPS and Riding Horse Association and Hunter Show Championship's. I spent my winter's hunting mostly educating young horses, so that they have an allround view of life. My preference in the show ring is for the In Hand classes, the beauty of a young horse coming out as a blank canvas with it all before them and starting their career in the right way, "There is no young horse born bad - people sadly make them that way". I am a firm believer of promoting the youngster which you can mould the way you wish, and here at Lenhall Farm, we feel you cannot microwave the young horse, but give it the time and education to allow it to evolve into a well rounded youngster ready to go on and futher it's career in your hands. Don't hesitate to call if you are looking for a horse and need to pick my brains!.
My name is Camilla, I started my equine career many years ago on the hunting field, and went to Ireland hunting and came home with a horse! My showing career started at the suggestion of a friend whilst we were both twiddling our thumbs in the summer with no hunting why not try a showing class very much at local level, so my hunter went showing but plaits weren't really for me and I fell for the cob. Many buying trips later to Ireland looking for horses I found a nice coloured cob that I thought would do for me I called him So Smart, he went Dublin as 4 year old where he was second being ridden by a friend who is an ex jockey!, he proved to be a great hunter and we had him at home for one season before, I sent him to Robert Walker in his words "to see what I can make of him" and Smartie was Supreme at his first show and went on to win the Supreme at HOYS at the end of the season! He went on to win another three classes at HOYS including the Coloured Championship at HOYS with Robert's wife Sarah, and two RIHS Champioships to name but a few. I have also had Champions at Dublin in the Cobs and Coloureds with two diffrent horse. My buzz is to find the horse in the raw and see the potential, for it to become that winning show horse (hopefully!). Do give either of us a call if you think we may be to help in your search for a horse.
