Vicky & Dave joined as owners back in 2016, and have fitted into the team seamlessly. CHF Cooliser (Eliza) is 10 years old and wasn’t actually backed until her 5 year old year. She has produced the goods steadily throughout her career. Eliza had a great first season in 2016 finishing on a double clear in her first her 1*. In 2017 she showed masses of ability moving up the grades with Two 2nds in CIC** at Ballindenisk & Chatsworth, a 6th in her first CCI* at Tattersalls. In 2018 she had a fatntastic season with 2nd CCI** Blair 2018 ~ WON Intermediate Championships at Festival of British Eventing Gatcombe. In 2019 she stepped up to her first CCI4*-L at Blenheim she tried her heart our with a single rail for 4 faults and eventual 21st place. We have such a great partnership built on trust and understanding each other so bring on 2020.

Jane Inns

Jane is an immensley supportive and loyal owner to Tom, she’s a joint owner of the wonderful star, Toldeo De Kerser with Ali & Tom McEwen. At the end of 2019, she co-ordinated the purchase of Falaise de Riverland a 5year old mare that Vicky & Dave and Magda & Manuel own together, she’s certainly one to watch in the next couple of years.

Magda Gut

Dreamy arrived after Badminton 2017 and is owned by Magda, she’s a 9 year old Thoroughbred, her first season off the race track was excellent out of her 8 runs she was in the Top 10 on 6 occasions ending the season with an 8th position at Aldon International in the CICYH* class. She followed this up again in 2018 with an 8th in CIC** at Bicton, 3rd in the RoR Championships, Festival of Eventing at Gatcombe & 2nd Intermediate at SOE. 2019 didn’t disappoint either with her Winning the “Retraining of Racehorses “Elite Eventing” Award”.
