Sula Blue had a great start to the season, coming 3rd in the AI at gatcombe and then completing the very tough 3* at Belton Park in a top  3rd placing in the section against some very good horses before he went away for his stud break, his first foal has made an amazing start to her eventing career with a top 10 placing in her first 2 comps and then winning  her 3rd finishing on her dressage score of 21 with a super double clear

Older news

January 2015........ both the boys attended the stallion parade at Hartpury, sadly Sula Blue had suffered a bruised sole during the week and was not allowed to jump, real shame as its what he loves to do the most but it gave him a chance to show some of the flatwork he has been working on over the winter in his lessons with Adam Kemp in preperation for going 3* this year,

Update at the parade was a total star with so much going on, he has never been anywhere quite so busy but took it all in his stride, very proud day seeing 2 of his talented children parade (one with him) and a grandchild that looks to have a very exciting future

Both the boys will be attending the B&W Stallion parade at West Wilts EC on 14-2-2015, it is run by one of our collection centers so all the staff will be on hand to answer all your breeding questions


Busy end to January, both the boys have had there swabs and are clear and ready for the season, the Sula Blue babies have been weaned, taking it very well and will be available for sale in the spring


Sula Blues oldest progeny will be making her ridden debut this weekend in the dressage arena, in prep for her starting out down the BE route and following in her sires footsteps

we were so proud of Jet (Out of the Blue) she was so grown up about everything, she loaded, traveled, tied to the lorry and took all the busy warm ups in her stride, she gained a 6th place with 66% with some great comments and a few things to work on, we are now working on her jumping in prep for her BE  debut, she loves the fences just like her sire

Huge well done to one of Updates progeny (Enigmatic Update) and her owner who competed recently at the BD Regionals, she has been bred and produced by her owner, such a beautiful level headed young horse with a big future ahead of her.

the Update babies can jump too, this is a young Update baby out of welsh pony mare, he was only backed few months ago but is proving a great partner for his 10yr old  rider, we are looking forward to watching this partnership this season as they begin their eventing career

Exciting news!! have just heard that Sula Blues first foal of the year has just arrived, a stunning black filly, the owners are thrilled with their new arrival, hopefully i will have pics to share soon

slight change of plan to the start of Sula Blues season, we were going to start at Gatcombe in 2 weeks but before that we are now taking him to Aldon next weekend  for a schooling run in the open novice, he will then be busy with his stud duties throughout April although we may squeeze in a run at Weston Park if the ladies timetables allow, if anyone would like to meet him whilst we are at an event please do message me as we are happy to arrange this


Sula's first foal of the season, im told she is a lively one but totally perfect...out of a british warmblood mare!

very sadly Gatcombe has been abandoned due to bad weather causing the ground to be unsuitable, we are very sorry he wont be there as we had a lot of people wanting to come and meet him, we are looking for an alternative but he will need to work around the ladies for the next few weeks




Gatcombe was re routed to Somerley Park, we had quite testing conditions having to be both towed in and out of the lorry park, dispite this we gave it our best shot getting a respectable 28 dressage, unluckily rolled a pole SJ but a good clear XC in a fast time saw us finish in 6th place, big pat for the boy after trying so hard in a very sticky dressage arena

the mares seem to be holding onto their precious loads this year, we have lots we are waiting for an appearance from, but this morning and a little before her due date we would like to welcome to the world a special lady, the first coloured baby by Sula Blue, we think you will agree she is just beautiful

and another Sula Blue baby arrives (4 weeks overdue), out of a lovely AA pony mare, a gorgeous colt this time, welcome to the world little Albie (Deja Blue)

Great weekend for Nuppend Stud with Sula Blue coming 5th in the CIC ** at Nunney International Horse Trials with a lovely double clear, the maternity ward is now open again with 2 very special homebred babies looking like they will make an appearance before too long so foalwatch begins

Our first homebred of the year has arrived safely, beautiful bay filly by Update out of a TB mare

The long awaited Prim/Sula baby arrives, she is huge and absolutely stunning, will get better pics once outside tomorrow  

pics of her outside for the first time, she is already big, beautiful and brave, mum is a daughter of the great 4* mare Welton Romance and Advanced eventer Primorres Pioneer (full brother of the 4* Primorres Pride, Pippa Funnell's olympic horse) who is out of another great 4* mare Pimorre Hill and by the amazing Mayhill, event breeding doesnt get any better than that!! feeling so blessed to have her here and so perfect!!

at just 4 months old our Sula Blue baby is already quite a big girl (dam is 17hh), we are very excited for her future eventing career, she is already a very independant  girl, not afraid of anything but a real sweetheart to handle and be around

our Update baby is also doing well, shes a cheeky one but full of charm and loves people and attention

the eldest of Sula Blues babies has been doing amazing as she starts her ridden career, a few weeks ago she made her dressage debut winning both the prelims and today she won again at an eventer challenge competition flying all the XC fences and being in the lead from start to finish on a great dressage score of 27 

We also have a very exciting future stallion prospect here at Nuppend Stud, he is a 3yr old full TB who has been homebred from one of our foundation mares, by a TB Sire who is graded with sports horse GB, his name is Darley and he will be aimed at an eventing career so watch out for him next year in british eventing young horse classes
