Ellie (BJs Dream) 

By Young Commander out of Eclipse (Disraeli Hanover). 

Bred by Jane Livingstone. 

She jumped her way to Grade A in BSJA with 76 wins, 64 2nds and 20 3rds. She has a grand total of 173 double clears on her record. She’s the most honest horse and absolutely loves going against the clock as she’s speedy and can turn tight! 

She will turn her hoof to anything and is always eager to please. She’s also done showing, dressage and she loves cross country. She always gets lovely comments by judges in the show ring! She’s a little horse with a big heart that has given me so many amazing memories traveling around the country and I will always be grateful to her for that. She has qualified for Northern Lights and ESUK for 2023 (showing and dressage). And I am hoping to aim for the veteran classes with her next, as she turns 15 this year. I love trying new things with her and I’m looking forward to see what the future holds!
