Cola – Hurstwood Britannia
Foaled: 5th July 2018 Homebred
Sire: Britannia Royal (Headley Brittania X Royaldix)
Dam: Coco Sullane
Exceptional bay filly with excellent bloodlines.
Hurstwood Britannia is an exciting homebred. We have in mind for the future for her to be produced as a top event horse.
Her sire’s line features Headley Britannia the 15.3 mare who won all three eventing grandslams Badminton 2007, Burghley 2006 and Kentucky 2009. Cola is relatively small in her build very much like her Grand dam Headley Brittania. We are very excited as the format so far is very much like her grand dam she is so well put together and is true quality.
Her dam’s line features grandam full sister to November Night 4* event horse and part of the Irish team ridden by Ciaran Glynn , the pair completed their first Badminton in 2017.

A very smart prospect, this homebred filly is by the incredible showjumper Cevin Z who is proving to have sired many successful event and showjumping horses.
Dam Weston Partytime: Patsy, Novice level eventer, the owner at the time never pushed her to a higher lever, we believe she could have gone a lot further
Her dam’s pedigree comes from Weston Justice out of Criminal Law 93.75% TB. Western Justice is an advanced eventer bred from British thoroughbred lines to produce an all round competition horse.
Sire: Cevin Z he is proving a serious producer of talented young horses both in showjumping and eventing. Cevin Z‘s breeding features the outstanding bloodlines for which the Zangersheide Studbook is famous.
Cevin Z was one of the most consistent 6 year olds in the country in 2003 achieving 4th place in the Foxhunter Championships at the Horse of the Year Show. His international winnings totalled £8000.00 when competing at Lisbon, Chantilly and Vimeiro in 2007, with UK wins at both The Surrey County and New Forest Shows.

Millie has a stunning set of paces inherited from her Dam Coco,who excelled at dressage, working at Advanced Medium. Millie was backed in 2010 and turned away for over a year. Liane then produced Millie as an event horse upto Novice 1* level, which we feel is her maximum potential. She is now on full loan and liveried here at the yard, with a young rider who wishes to start eventing. We feel that Millie is a brilliant horse to show a brave but inexperienced rider the ‘ropes’ at grassroots level eventing (90/100) and make a brilliant all rounder. Millie can be grumpy to handle but is a straight forward fun ride who loves to jump. She is also occasionally used for lessons and hacks here at the farm.
Competitive career: – 68 BE foundation points
– £163 BS winnings

William was backed by Liane in October 2011, proving very quick to learn. He worked well in the school and started hacking out with some of our older horses. He quickly picked up the basic aids and was jumping a small course after just 3 weeks under saddle – he showed a really natural and careful technique over fences at this early stage.He was then turned away to give him some time to mature. In late 2012 we brought him back into work and he started his eventing career in the spring of 2013. Unfortunately for various circumstances (rider injury, abandonments, etc) he hardly competed at all for the rest of the season. In 2014 he has been able to have a much more productive season so far and has truly excelled! His natural scope with his jumping had ensured he has not been outside the top 5 in BE classes this year, with 2 wins under his belt already in his short career.Click here to see William’s progress
