Fitz the Bill, a 10 year old owned by Matthew and Tony Kaye of St David's Equine, competing in the semi-final of the Silver League at Keysoe recently.
Qualifying at Bicton Arena 'Mathew Hall from Okehampton, Devon gave the winning performance in the Silver League qualifier at Bicton Arena with his own 10 year-old bay gelding, Fitz The Bell. In the ten horse jump off this pair crossed the finish line with a treble clear in 44.55 seconds and grabbed one of the three qualification spots on offer for the Silver League Semi- Finals, which will run in August.' (BS report 19 July 17).
After a 7hr road trip to Keysoe, the next day Fitz showed his class with two clear rounds and a place in the jump off. Unfortunately however, tiredness caught up with him and he narrowly missed out on a place in the Silver League final at HOYS.
Matthew hasn't owned the horse for long but they have struck up a winning partnership and the horse continues to improve and is an exciting prospect for the future.
23 Sept 2017 - Chard Equestrian. Another successful day with Fitz the Bill second in a competitive 1..30, with Ballydeely Niamh (owned by Anne Verden Jones and currently for sale), in 4th whilst Donna Pearson's Chanella was 6th in the 1..20.
