Sheepgate BYRDS Under 25’s Championship

I am writing to thank Blue Chip Feeds for their most generous sponsorship of the Sheepgate Under 25’s Dressage Championships 2012. 2012 saw over 1000 tests ridden over the six days by over 250 combinations of horses / ponies and riders. With more than 500 rosettes and 30 sashes awarded. The press reports and photos will be online on our website www.sheepgate.co.uk shortly. Again thank you for your support of this prestigious championship, without the support of sponsors such as yourselves this event would not be the success it is. Kind regards,...

I’m Lizzy and I work in the Blue Chip office undertaking various office duties from answering your calls to sending out our products. I work at Blue Chip part-time between studying Biology at the University of Leeds and working at a riding school. I first came to Blue Chip in summer 2012 to do some research for my final year project at university which was based on equine laminitis and thanks to the helpfulness of the other staff and the interest I gained in the feed products, I have been here ever since! I have a highland pony called Merlin. I have owned him for almost 9 years now and luckily have never outgrown him due to his very stocky build! We have done all sorts together from pony club to showing to plodding around the block (his...
February Update from Clare Blaskey

February Update from Clare Blaskey

2011 proved to be an incredible year for Blue Chip and 2012 looks to be even better. Blue Chip re-launched the entire balancer range and 2011 saw CarrotCalm and AppleCalm syringes being launched, which have had fantastic results. 2012 will see some more innovative products to help keep all our horses happy and healthy, so watch this space! The Blue Chip horses had a great 2011 with I’m Blue Chip Too (Glen) qualifying for The Veteran Horse Society and Dodson & Horrell Show Championships at Olympia, London. It was an amazing experience to ride in the magnificent arena and Glen put on an outstanding performance to become Reserve Ridden Veteran Champion. My Large riding horse, (Jools) also had a fantastic season in 2011. He started the season by winning the Novice Riding Horse and Championships at Hambleton county show and won his first ever dressage test, he then went on to win The Best Trained show horse at the National Championships. Our racehorse ‘Come on Blue Chip’ (Nero) had an incredible season in 2011 with 2 wins at Wolverhampton and a 3rd at Newmarket. Nero’s first time out in 2012 saw him coming 2nd at Lingfield, only being beaten by a head. His trainer Paul D’arcy is very pleased with him, so look out for him in 2012. 2012 started with Jools winning a novice dressage test at Fieldhouse and Glen competing in the Novice to Music Freestyle dressage regional finals at Addington. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ....
