About Me

Ceri Phipps-Hewlett Born in August 1984.

I was lucky enough to be brought up about horses from day one. My mother already had 6 horses when I was born. One being a Part bred Chestnut Mare Lady of the barns!. My mum never pushed me in to horses it was my choice if I wanted to take part in them. Of course I did want to paly horses. I was lucky to have a string of show jumpers and show ponies over the years, but i nevr had ready made ponies. My mother always told me, breaking you own ponies in and working with them will make you a better rider and she was right it made me stick thats for sure. Over the years I had some great ponies with BSJA JA ponies and Show ponies.

We always had part bred arabs and my mum bred a lot of part bred horses over the time as you can see from the horse pages. At the age of 15 we had been to the National Arab show a few times and I had watched the pure breds in hand and ridden and i knew what i wanted next a pure bred so i worked hard and on my 15th B day i got a lovely Arab Mare Taboo who i still have now and love!, she wasnt the easiest horse to break, with her bucking and tail going over your head and the front end coming up many times. But I didnt give up like many teens would I wanted to get her right and boy im glad i need as that horse has doen every thing for me over the last 15 years i have had her. From BD dressage up to Medium, XC up to 3ft6 and showingjumping at 3ft6. Oh and course the showring.
