CURRENT BREEDING MARES
Caunton Welldone achieved more than 358 British Eventing points in her International career. Competing successfully at CCI*** level, finishing 14th at Bramham in 2010 and winning The Angela Cotton Memorial Trophy for the highest placed mare. Had Caunton Welldone not sustained an injury in 2013, leaving her unable to compete at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials that year, she would have been a true 4* campaigner. As brave as a lion and with plenty of jump, her offspring carry forward her best features.
Caunton Devina W was based in Germany throughout her entire competition career where she was ridden by South African rider Natalie Hobday. Seriously talented at Dressage, she progressed through the levels with ease. After reaching Grand Prix and scoring over 70% at that level, she was short listed for the 2011 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. Unfortunately after sustaining an injury, it would become apparent in 2014 that Devina would not return to competition. Caunton Manor Stud were lucky enough to purchase the stunning mare that year as a broodmare. She is by Don Vino and passes on the Donnerhall line.
CAUNTON FIRST CLASS
Caunton First Class is only five years old and 2020 will be her first year of embryo transfer so she can continue to concentrate on her career. She was the 4yo Westphalian eventing champion in Germany and since arriving in the UK, has already qualified for the BYEH Final at Bramham. She is by Amiro Z and out of a Valentino mare. Her grandmother was the mother of William Fox-Pitt’s Lionheart and her mother is also the full sister to the mare owned by Scuderia, Vivian 47. We are very excited about her future.
PREVIOUS BREEDING MARES
Although no longer with us, the following mares have passed on their outstanding genes and given us some wonderful progeny.
NOISETTE DES PRES
Noisette Des Pres had a successful career in Show Jumping and Three Day Eventing. Originally Show Jumping at Grand Prix, she was then purchased by Caunton Manor Stud for Matthew Wright to campaign. Within the first week of their career together she won the CCI* at Punchestown in Ireland and the duo continued to achieve much more success over the following years. Ballindenisk CIC*** being one of the highlights in which they finished in 9th place.
Originally from the Billy Stud, Blitz was purchased by the Wright family and was successfully competed by Matthew Wright. Bred for Jumping and with scope to burn, she made nothing of Eventing and Show Jumping. Blitz is by the great AES registered stallion Animo.
