Other info:- Alfie arrived from Ireland in December, 2003. He was quite a nervous character to begin with but he soon settled down and started to work to please you. It was immediately evident that he loved to jump and he went straight out in the 2004 season as an Open M&M WHP. He had a successful season including taking the WHP Championship at Central and West Fife Show and being 2nd Reserve in both the Welsh Section D Open Ridden and WHP Championships at the Elite Final.
Unfortunately at the beginning of 2005, Alfie hurt his back whilst playing in the field at will be off work resting for the foreseeable future.
During the summer of 2006, Alfie made a gentle return to showing ridden by Holly Miller. This successful partnership proved they will be knocking on the door next year by winning their first Olympia qualifying class at Blair in August 2006.
Alfie is again contesting the ridden and WHP classes in 2007 ridden by Holly Miller and has had much success, including a picture and a write up in Horse and Hound!!

In mid April, my friend, Elaine, asked if, after 2 years sitting in the field, babysitting youngsters, she could bring Alfie out again under saddle. We decided to go ahead and have been delighted with his results this season, which included a 6th at the Derbyshire County Show (out of 36), 6th at the Royal Highland in both the M&M WHP and HOYS Ridden. Reserve M&M WHP Champion at Braco and Ridden Supreme Champion at the Scottish All Welsh Show where he also won a Performance Medal.
In September, 2010, we decided to take Alfie to compete in BE90 at Wee Burgie and could not believe it when he finished 3rd overall, 1.5 points behind the winner despite being the smallest competitor there! His jockey said he was a machine over the jumps, loving every minute!
In an even stranger twist of fate, Elaine decided to take Alfie to his first dressage test, a very risky choice for our little fire cracker! However, the chilled out Alfie appeared and he managed to contain his energy and finish 5th, a result of which I am very proud,
