The prolific show horse I’m Blue Chip Too (Glen), now 20 years old is having a fantastic season having already qualified for the Richard Leeman Supreme Championship, The Veteran Horse Society Veteran of The Year and Dressage Finals and now The Anthony Evans Senior Showing Grand Final Championships at Olympia. Glen is no stranger to Championships shows, having been crowned Champion Riding Horse at HOYS as a four and a five year old, as well as competing at Olympia before in the Senior Championships, where he was Reserve Champion. Last weekend Glen not only won his ridden class but then went on to win the Aintree Championship and the SSADL Championship, gaining him a place at the prestigious event in London.
Glen is ridden by Blue Chip’s Owner/Founder Clare Blaskey who says “Glen has been with me for seventeen years since he was three years old he has had a fantastic career as a show horse, winning his first show at just six weeks of age. He has won the National Best Trained Show Horse competition, which is a freestyle to music class between 2007 and 2010, loves working and is still ridden every day. Glen is a very clever horse, he can undo gates and sliding doors so we have to keep a chain around all the doors and gates, to keep this active mind busy we do a bit of dressage, Glen can do tempi changes and his piaffe is quite good too. “
Glen will continue to go to some shows and dressage competitions this summer as well as ‘nannying’ Clare’s 5 year old horse and teaching her granddaughter to ride side-saddle.
