I’m Blue Chip Too has been crowned champion at Bakewell Show 2014 for the 5th time. The 19 year old veteran show horse is ridden by Blue Chip’s owner and founder Mrs Clare Blaskey and has competed at his local show 11 times during his career, with his first appearance at Bakewell being in 1999.
Clare has owned I’m Blue Chip Too (Glen) since he was 3 years old and he has had a fantastic career as a show horse, being champion at HOYS and RIHS twice as a Riding Horse. He now competes in the Veteran classes and is hoping to qualify for the Ridden Veteran finale at Olympia in December; he was Reserve Champion there in 2011.
Clare says “he seems to be better than ever this year and comes bouncing out of his stable every day, eager to do whatever you choose to do with him. He still has a half an hour lesson every week with a German Dressage Trainer Marie Luise Coulthard, who herself was trainer by Egon V Neindorff. He really enjoys his lesson and especially the polo treat at the end”
