On Thursday 12 July at Writtle College’s Cow Watering Campus there were over 70 horses entered at the Essex BEF Futurity.

The day started with the vetting and loose jumping of three year olds and concluded with mares and foals.

To add to the successful day, Writtle College’s Lordships Stud had a successful show with the display of their young horses from the stud achieving three higher firsts and two firsts. Further to the success of the College’s own young Horses, Amy Mills, Lecturer in Lecturer in Equine Science, Breeding & Reproduction Specialist went on to say: “Congratulations also goes to Pennie Wallce, Equine Lecturer, whose foal was awarded a higher first premium; to our livery owner Pat Sharman and Dannatara who secured a higher first; and to student Felicity Chapman-Young, who owns College-bred Dancer, who also gained a higher first!”

“It was also great to have help from a number of students who returned for the day to support the stud team.”
