I just wanted to let you know that Sovi started
his journey to his new home in Italy this morning.
He has been bought by Kate Miller and her
Serena is in the Italian Army and is a young
event rider currently riding at CIC**. When Serena came to try him he was
in a particually naughty mood but she quite happily jumped on bored and
rode him beautifully and I knew they where going to be the perfect home
Kate and her Husband came over personally to
collect him and will let me know when he arrives safely.
Kate has said she will keep in touch so I will
let you know how he is getting on.
I am totally devastated as I love him to pieces
but I just cannot give him the time or career that he so deserves the
chance to have now that my priorities have changed after the arrival of my
So watch this space as we may one day see him at
I hope you are all well and preparation for the
open day is running smoothly.
Can you help??
Since having her baby last year by
emergency caesarean Emma has unfortunately not had much time to spend with
Sovereign and he is bored and not getting worked. Emma has him in a
DIY yard but is struggling and now regrettably has come to the decision that
she needs to either find a sharer to help look after and ride him or to sell
him. She lives near Weybridge and if you are interested in
discussing possibilities with Emma please contact by email
Sovereign is a stunning horse and Emma would like him to go to a loving home
where he can achieve his potential.

Just thought I would send you a quick note and
pictures of Sovi.
He is doing really well with his work and I
have been able to go and lunge him over the past few weeks and he really
does take it all in his stride. Hopefully I will be able to get on him
soon and then he can have a well earned holiday.
I got back on board today for the first time
since having Phoebe and it was great as I have missed it so much. I
borrowed a nice cob from my friends riding school. Now I just need to go
to the gym to get fit!
Hope all is well with you and all at Holme
Emma, Lyndsay and Sovi.

Congratulations on your new arrival! He is
truly stunning! I cannot wait to meet him at the open day!
Sovereign is enjoying playing in the field and
getting covered in mud on a daily basis (he just loves being groomed!).
He has far too much energy and drives the other horses mad as he just
loves to play. He is so agile and moves around the field like a dream!
(although at times he can get a little over exuberant)
I am limited to what I can do with him at the
moment with my ever increasing baby bump but he is growing all the time
so needs the extra time to mature. I have been doing little things with
him to keep him mentally stimulated and as always he takes everything in
his stride. I cannot wait until I can start riding him but for now he is
enjoying being a cheeky youngster with his friends.
Sovereign is just growing and growing at the
moment and he just gets more and more handsome. He is such a
wonderful chap and as you say he remembers everything he has learnt.
I will send you some pictures of him soon.
Again congratulations and I look forward to
seeing the next arrivals in April.
Take care and all the best,
Emma, Lyndsay and Sovereign.

I hope you have had a good Christmas and New
year so far.
Just thought I would send you a quick email and
a picture showing Sovereign and my other horse Charlie enduring my
festive spirit! As you can see from the picture neither of them where at
Sovi is currently being very cheeky with the
other horses and wants to play all the time which lands him in quite a
lot of trouble and he seems to have placed himself at the top of the
pecking order even over my older horse Charlie although they get on
really well. Luckily when he is with me and mum he turns in to a big
soppy donkey and will happily stand all day to be groomed even putting
his head down for us to brush and picking his feet up for you to pick
We decided to try loading him in the lorry
yesterday and it was the first time since his journey here. He walked
straight in had a nose around then calmly walked out again. I then left
him nearby to finish off a bit of food that we had on hand to temp him
if needed, I turned by back for a second and then heard him walking back
up the ramp on his own. He looked so proud of himself! He is such a
Me and mum are truly besotted with him. We can
do anything with him and he loves it. I cannot wait to start our ridden
We look forward to seeing you in 2006,
All our love and best wishes,
Emma, Lyndsay and Sovereign.

Wow what a great day I have had today!
I rode Sovereign for the first time and as normal
he was unfazed by the whole thing. Mum led us around and he was such a
good boy. I think once we have mastered how to walk and trot I will leave
him until next year before we attempt anything more, he still has a lot of
maturing to do.
We had a little local show at our yard the other
day and this gave me a great opportunity for him to have a wander about.
He grew to about 18hh and was quite confused to why these strange horses
where there but he behaved so well. We will certainly get noticed when we
compete in a few years, he is a bit of a show off.
I have attached a few pictures of us and will
send you some better ones when we get them. (I wasn't really dressed for
Hope you are all well and look forward to seeing
you next week.
Emma, Lyndsay and Sovereign.
We were delighted to
receive the e-mail below on 21st August 2005 letting us know of his
I cannot believe how well HP Sovereign has
settled in. Me and Mum love him to bits!
I went on holiday a few weeks ago and found it
really hard leaving him and was a little worried that Mum would
struggle to do him by herself.
Well I had no reason to be worried as he was
an angel and mum is now so confident with him. He is such a wonderful
horse and everyone that meets him says how beautiful he is.
He is slowly being introduced to new things
and takes it all in his stride, he really doesn't mind what you do to him!
He is so stunning and I feel really proud when
people come to meet him, I still cannot believe that he is my horse.
Thank you so much for giving me the
opportunity to own him.
I will keep you posted on our progress,
Emma, Lyndsay & HP Sovereign.
