The sun shone on the beautiful Lincolnshire showground, for the annual Blue Chip and IDHS £2000 Challenge. Entries were high, with an exceptional standard of horses being presented for all classes. After a difficult decision from the judges the eventual winner of The Blue Chip and IDHS Challenge out of 54 entries was Charles Le Moignan and the superb heavyweight Redbridge Tiny Tim.

Charles has only had Timmy since last October when he was bought from Ireland by Mrs Harrod for Charles to ride. Charles says “Mrs Harrod kindly flew my wife Hilary and I to Dublin last October to see Redbridge Tiny Tim fresh after his Champion 4yr old and Reserve Supreme of Show at The Dublin Horse Show, It only took a matter of minutes before we fell in love with him and Mrs Harrod bought him there and then.
He arrived at my yard in South Yorkshire and we set about getting to know him and schooling him through the winter ready for the 2013 season. He has a wonderful temperament but due to his young age and height of 17.3hh we struggled to put the condition on him we needed for the show ring coupled with the fact he is not a greedy horse and almost a little picky with his food!!
Thank God we found Blue Chip Original which he loves and the condition has built up slowly without making him fat and over loaded through his shoulder, Tiny Tim has been fantastically successful in this his first season here, winning Champion Novice Hunter at The Great Yorkshire and Champion Heavyweight Hunter at The Royal International . At the beginning of the season we sat down and worked out what our goals were with Timmy and the one Mrs Harrod and ourselves all agreed on was the Blue Chip Challenge at the IDHS. We had never been before and I am a lover of the breed and also am now so grateful that the Blue Chip product is playing its part in Timmy’s success. So it goes without saying how delighted we ALL were when we were lucky enough to actually win it!!! And my goodness it really was a very high standard.”
Blue Chip are delighted to announce their continued sponsorship of the Blue Chip and IDHS £2000 Challenge for 2014.
