Chippy is a pure-bred Lusitano gelding, and was born and bred at Emergosol Lusitanos, which is owned and run by Blue Chip’s distributor in Portugal, Anne Langan. Anne feeds all of her horses Blue Chip Original, including the foals when they start to pick at their Mum’s feed. Chippy now lives with Hilary McNeil in England, below is a report on how they have been getting on so far this year:
“Hello Blue Chip; I thought you would like to know how Chippy got on in his first showing show of the year. He got two seconds – Best Rider and Best Riding Horse, and first in the Ridden Foreign Breeds. We then went on to take the ring championships! We went on to win the second championship and qualified for The Royal London Show and the showing section of the Sunshine Tour Finals, he has already qualified for the dressage. Little star!! Our next show is the Iberian Festival in Surrey.
We hope to go to the BAPSH show at Hartpury again this year, and also our own breed show, both of which are at the end of July. The Royal London is the weekend after Edenbridge & Oxted show in August, and then we will finish with the Sunshine Tour Championships in September.
We have got a clinic with Pedro Neves soon; I’m going to take Chippy this time, as the working equitation was a bit disappointing last time. Victoria (another horse that Hilary purchased from Emergosol Lustianos) is doing well with her jumping, so I hope to get her out soon.”
