Competition Horses

The Last Cavalier

Stable name:  Tiggy
Rider Katie Kneen
Height:  17.1hh
Born: 2005
Breeding:  By Last News x Cavalier Royale
Bred by Mullentine Stud.
Tiggy was bought as a 2 year old and produced by Katie. He competed very successfully in eventing up to Intermediate level before moving into show jumping due to his careful nature. He competed successfully to Foxhunter/1.30m level and was placed 5th in the Grade C championships at Bicton Arena.
Over the last few years Tiggy has moved into pure dressage. He was part of the winning South West Home International team in 2019 and has competed at the Regional finals.  We are aiming  to establish him at advanced medium in 2020 with the dream of competing in the small tour in time.

Master Voyager

Stable name:  Dante
Rider: Alice Kneen
Height: 17.3hh
Born: 2008
Breeding:  By Golden Master (Master Imp) x Cruising
Home Bred.
Dante was the first home bred at Springtime Equestrian and is known on the yard as the "big friendly giant". Whilst his size can be intimidating he has the most amazing temperament and heart, making him a pleasure to train. He has competed successfully up to BE intermediate but unfortunately an injury in 2019 interrupted his season. At the start of 2020 he is back in great form and we hope to compete him at CCI*** later this year.
 

Dazzling Springtime

Stable name:  Apollo
​Rider: Alice Kneen
Height:  16.3hh
Born: 2009
Breeding: By Catheston Dazzler x Sailing x Cruising
Home bred.
Originally produced by Katie, Apollo had a hesitant start to his eventing career, due to his sharp character. However over the last few years as he has matured Apollo has had great success with Alice in eventing. In 2019 he became well established at CIC3* this year finishing in the top 25 in his first 3 day at Hartpury, whilst also adding a national win to his name. In 2020 the aim is to move up to 4*S level at Barbury and hopefully make it to the Festival of British Eventing towards the end of year.  

Mullentine R Royale

Stable name:  Minstrel
​Rider: Alice Kneen
Height:  16.3hh
Born: 2011
Breeding: Mermus R x Cavalier Royale
Home bred.
Though Minstrel has shown talent and competed in all three discplines, his incredible love and talent for show jumping coulf not be denied. Alice initially produced him up to Newcomers as a young horse, but as the final years at university and full time work became more intense, Minstrel was not getting the experience he needed. Over the last 12 months we have relied on local rider adrian Whiteway to give him the competitive experience he needed. In just one season Minstrel won at every level up to 1.30m level, with regional and national successes along the way. Now back with us once more we are aiming to build Minstrel's confidence at 1.40m level.

Springtime Navigator

Stable name:  Roo

Rider: Katie Kneen
Height: 16.3hh
Age: 2010
Breeding: By Wish Upon a Star x Cruising
Home bred.
After being sold in 2017 to a young rider Roo came back us at the end of 2019 after suffering an injury. After period of rest we were able to bring him back into work and start  With paces to die for Katie decided to keep him and produce Roo up the levels of dressage, alongside Tiggy.
After having time off, the focus is to re-establish Roo's strength before competing him later in 2020.

Springtime Gypsy Moth

Stable name:  Apple

Rider: Katie Kneen
Height: 16hh
Age: 2013
Breeding: Tresor Mail x Cruising
Home bred.
Apple may be small compared to her brothers, but she quickly developed a reputation for being a big jumper! After jumping clear over a 5 bar gate as yearling she has also jumped clean out of the indoor school over a 1.50m door, from trot! Apple has a lovely, relaxed temperament and acts more like a 16 year old then a 6 year old. She unfortubately picked up a soft tissue injury in 2019 which delayed her affiliated career. Having competing in unaffiliated competitions and at BD, Apple is in full fitness and will be starting her BE career in 2020.

Springtime Moonstone

Stable name:  Lyra

Rider: Katie Kneen
Height: 16.2hh
Born: 2014
Breeding: Wish Upon A Star x Cavalier Royale
Home bred.
Nicknamed "princess" due to her elegant movement and jumping style. Lyra is a sensitive mare so fantastically suited to Katie's relaxing riding technique. She has been produced slowly as a star for the future, establishing her confidenece and strength in the dressage. At the moment Lyra is not destined for a particular discipline, showing talent in all phases. She will be aiming to start her jumping career in 2020. 

Springtime Sailing

Stable name:  Elsa

Rider: Alice Kneen
Height: 16.3hh
Born: 2014
Breeding: Grafenstolz x Cruising
Home bred.
Elsa was born to event! Lovely paces and extremely brave we hope she will be an exciting future prospect. Unfortunately she was a little too brave when it came to fencing and suffered an injury in 2019, having obviously thought the grass was greener elsewhere! Happily, she is now back in full fitness and has spent the Winter competing at unaffiliated events. Elsa will be starting her eventing career in 2020 with hopes of potentially aiming for the Young Horse Championships.

Springtime Forest Run

Stable name:  Forest

Rider: Alice Kneen
Height: 17hh
Born: 2015
Breeding: Jaguar Mail x Cavalier Royale
Home bred.
Forest is lovingly named after "Forest Gump", due to having splints placed on her front legs as a foal. They certainly did the job and she has developed beautifully! Due to her size, after breaking her in as a 3/4 year old, Forest was turned away for the year so she could grow into herself. This has benefitted her massively and she is now building up her strength, she is currently in work and building up fitness. We hope to slowly start her competitive career in 2020.

Springtime Presents

Stable name:  Reggie

Rider: Katie Kneen
Height: 16hh
Born: 2015
Breeding: Grafenstolz x Presenting
Home bred.
As expected with his racing lineage, Reggie has a need for speed! He has a great temperament for training, with a lot of natural ability and enthusiasm. He would rather jump first and ask questions later so working on adjusting the speed is our main focus for him. With three very smart paces, we are looking forward to starting his eventing career in 2020.

Springtime Chilli Morning

Stable name:  Fawkes

Rider: Alice Kneen
Height: 17hh
Born: 2016
Breeding: Chilli Morning x Cavalier Royale
Home bred.
Fawkes has a very laid back temperament and loves human interaction. He had a difficult start, becoming seriously ill as a foal. It was touch and go whether he would recover to fulfill a competitive career but we were very lucky he made an outstanding recovery. As a 4 year old he has grown into his tall stature and was broken in 2019. With impressive natural talent and a good nature we have big hopes,as he matures, for a very promising future.

Springtime Stardust

Stable name:  Ziggy
Height: 16hh
Born: 2016
Breeding:   x Presenting
Home bred.
Ziggy is a quiet-natured horse who tends to connect to one person. Small and fast, she looks destined to be a "pocket-rocket" with the same need for speed as her mother. Ziggy is currently being backed so will be turned away to develop for the 2020 season. We hope to bring her back into work this Winter so she can start to establish a relationship with her rider, which we think will be important for her confidence and development. 

Springtime Evergreen +
Springtime Stardust

Owner: Melanie Etherington

Stable name:  Bowie
Height: 16.1hh
Born: 2016
Breeding: Everdale x
Embryo Transfer
Melanie has been a great supporter of Springtime Equestrian for a number of years and is like a part of the family. She came to us after her horse Gardenia (Jazz) suffered an injury which cut her promising competition career short. Melanie was understandably keen to maintain the fantastic talent and pedigree of her beloved mare. We were successful in obtaining an embryo transfer from Jazz, with Bowie and Zena being born in 2015. Both have developed into eye-catching and elegant youngsters. Zena and Bowie were backed in 2019 and will be given a few months to grow and develop before starting their dressage careers.
