Billy is a new and very exciting addition to the team, beautifully produced to Novice level by Lucie Varley. Destined for a career in steeple chasing and after three years of training and failed attempts, it became obvious that racing was not Billy's forte! The Varley's did the most fantastic job re training him and paving the way for his new vocation as an eventer.

With Lucy heading off to university, she would no longer have the time to further his education and one of Jodie's most long standing owners Nicky Coates came on board to help purchase Billy. In a very short space of time, they have upgraded to Intermediate level with ease and although the dressage is certainly a working progress, Billy's exceptional jump and class across country are undeniably top class. 

Jodie will take the winter to consolidate his flatwork and alongside Nicky with her patient and long term approach, they are both very much hoping Billy has what it takes to go all the way and follow in Cracker's footsteps.
