Liz Wright, Moortown Stud
My name is Liz Wright and I own and run Moortown Stud in Ringwood Hampshire.
I use Bliss bedding all the time. Our top show winning Traditional Gypsy Cob mare “Moortown Frilly” couldnt manage without it!!
I have just been very fortunate to have had 2 major national successes in the very recent and highly publicised Showing Personality Awards 2013 and thought I should let you know.
My prolific winning 14hh 7yr old Piebald Traditional Gypsy Cob mare “Moortown Frilly” (winner at Hoys, twice winner and Res Supreme at the Royal International) won the Show Pony Personality Award 2013 beating 5 other top class ponies including the Supreme Pony at Hoys last year! She has literally won everything there is to win on the showing circuit during the last 3 years and this award has just proven how popular and well known she is within the UK .
We were then completely over whelmed and thrilled when Moortown Stud was also awarded the highly prestigious Breeders Award 2013!
We breed top class coloured show horses and ponies of all types and to simply be nominated amongst such top class studs within the industry was an honour, but to be recognised in this way by winning both of the awards was a dream come true!
These national awards are run by The Showing Council in conjunction with Showing World magazine. The public are invited to put forward nominations and the final 6 nominees are selected by a panel for each catagory, and it is then left for the public to decide the final results by voting online.
The results were announced at the very glitzy ceremony attended by all the major players in the showing world and was held at Peterborough Show Ground last Saturday night the 26th October.
Obviously breeding and showing Traditional Gypsy Cobs along with more quality coloured types means we use your bedding daily. Frilly in particular benefits hugely from being bedded on Bliss Citronella. Obviously being a gypsy cob her hair and feather has to be kept in excellent condition. Feather mites can be a real problem causing legs to be itchy and scabby with dramatic hair loss but with Bliss Citronella this has ceased to be a problem. She used to be bedded on straw but this was a nightmare and the improvement has been dramatic!
I find Bliss bedding to be excellent and easy to use and muck out and we use it on our stud generally in preference to any other bedding product.
I just wondered whether this was of interest to you.
I have attatched a couple of photographs of Moortown Frilly.
