Elite status for Classic Continental of Westoak
Classic Continental of Westoak is our first Elite mare bred by the stud. She competed at the British Hanoverian Horse Society Annual show at Moulton College in September. She had already passed her mare performance test with Elite marks for jumping and went onto gain a 1A in the showing class from the German judges. She is now an Elite candidatemare until she has her first foal when she will have Elite status. The Elite status is the English equivalent of the German Stae Premium mare.
Owned by Nikki O'Horo and Darren Barrett, she had already competed in the regional dressage championships and the Hickstead Young Horse classes this year. Nikki said 'Connie will now have a well earned rest before she starts competing again'. Both Nikki and Darren are delighted with her new status.

Addington 2011 proved to be an outstanding year for the stud.
Two of the three year old horses we bred Merri of Westoak and Magic of Westoak came to the show with their owners for the Studbook Inspection. It was lovely to see them all grown up and starting their ridden careers.
We entered Elaine of Westoak and Classic Prada for the Performance test, in-hand class and the Materiale. Both three year olds were already Studbook inspected.
Elaine of Westoak just got better and better as the show went on and won the three year old Materiale class. See picture below, the last name on the cup being Woodlander Wavavoom! The judges commented on Elaine of Westoak that she was calm - she just soaked up the atmosphere and nothing phased her.

Westoak Rmolly is by Parsons Rasputin out of our mare Aventina (Archipel). Molly loves her work and is keen to please. Well done to Tina and Molly.
