Eight year old Libby Grota and mum Hayely of Cilgerran have qualified their grey novice mare, Colne Tuip for Horse of the Year Show held in Birmingham this October. Purchased from her breeder, Ann Overton-Ablitt in Essex as an unbroken three year old, Tulip has been brought on slowly. Now five, and in her first full showing season, she has won 10 championships so far - the main ones being the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, Solihull, Ponies UK and the Brynseion Final.
' Tulip has now been turned away for a few weeks to chill before the preparation starts for HOYS,' explained a delighted Hayley.
