This is my daughters’ Shetland pony – Black Jack. He had awful skin when we got him and his coat was very dull but after just his 2nd bag of Lami-Light his skin has improved and he’s lovely and shiny.View full post
Molly an 8mth old bay filly and Dawn a 7 yr old grey cob mare were rescued by an ISPCA inspector in early April. Both were emaciated and suffering from exposure.

I backed my horse at 2 and a half as he was already 15.1, and I thought he was going to be quite a chunk! The plan was to back him then turn him away to mature for the next 6 months. The photo of him looking very underweight was taken on the 8th of …View full post
I wanted to forward you some pictures of Harmony after being on Blue Chip – the first two pictures obviously are her now, and the last photo is of her before going onto Blue Chip Original.

Hi, my name is Charlotte and I have only recently started work at Blue Chip. I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in May 2013 with a degree in Equine Sports Science and Psychology. I currently carry out general admin jobs as well as answer the phone and help with the nutritional advice and enquiries.
I have ridden since I was tiny and have ridden my Mother’s 14.2hh Connemara cross McCoy for the past 5 years. McCoy and I currently compete in British Dressage but we have tried our hand at most things. We qualified for the Pet Plan Area Festivals in 2013 at novice and prelim and are aiming to qualify for summer regionals in 2014. My main aim is to do my first Elementary class on him next year!
I have already learnt so much at Blue Chip and hope to continue learning and increasing my experience here as part of the team.
Super busy weekend – Saturday was spent in Ayrshire at a local showjumping competition – not something we do much of, but we had great fun. We actually got a 1st, a 2nd and a ‘just not fast enough’ when the big guns came out (the people who jump all the time!). But I was delighted with Fizz as she jumped three double-clears, and was admired by many.
Well it’s been a quite month in regards to competing and winter is now upon us, so all the horses are in and its endless mucking out and training, ready for the big tour next year. However, we have our first new addition to the yard; her breed name is Zalia V, but as we have a food theme going on with stable names she is known as Marmite.
