Home produced small / intermediate show hunter, that is 50% Irish Draught (Dam - from King of Diamonds bloodline) and 50% Welsh Section D (Sire - from Danaway Welsh bloodline). We have owned Rosa since a 2 year old and we purchased her from Dali Stud where she was born and bred.

Blue_Chip_Natasha_Dolman_Lily

30 year old chestnut mare that stands at 14.2HH. Lily is a home produced Lightweight show cob that is bred 50% Suffolk punch, 25% Welsh D and 25% Arab. My mother has owned Lily since she was just 6 months old, and Lily was the horse that taught me how to ride! Lily is now enjoying life being fully retired from work.

Ambitions/Aims:

For Natasha her aims are always to improve! "I always try and strive to better and develop the best I can, not only for my horses but for me too."

"My aims for the future are definitely to qualify Mac for the RIHS and HOYS again! 2020 didn’t give us much of a show season, but it was Rosa’s first affiliated season, and for the few shows she went to, I think she did considerably well. Although, I did want to qualify her for both the RIHS and HOYS, but COVID had other ideas! When returning back to the show ring, I’d love to keep up the good results at both the county and championship shows, as they’re defiantly my favourites! There’s such a good atmosphere created by the venues,  spectators and riders etc, it’s such a fab experience. I would also love to compete in the working show horse championship at the RIHS one day, it looks like a fantastic course and it’s great fun to watch!"

Exciting news ...

"There may also be another little homebred foal on the way! Rosa will hopefully be put into foal early in 2021, to then hopefully (fingers crossed!) foal next year. My aims with the foal all being well, will be to home produce them from home, and hopefully show him/her in hand as a youngster.
