Horse Diaries: Bob – B. Grandeur

He was made to Dance

Horse: Bob - B. Grandeur - November 7th, 2012


Well Big Bob is proving to be quite the star on the floor, With his fancy foot work and Louise’s  hard work they are bringing home them  red rosettes every time.


They recently competed at Hickstead  and won every class,  that’s after having moved up four classes in less than a year.

Thanks to Louise for keeping in touch and sending those great pictures.

Well Robbie you have big boots to fill now!  You may look a bit gangly and hairy like most yearlings but we still love you and can see how beautiful you’re going to be.







This is how Dad is doing at the moment

It is lovely to be able to keep in touch with Gran V Dad since  he has left Lakeland Equestrian. Louise is kind enough to keep us updated with is dressage winnings and photos of a hugely missed big BOB.


It sounds and looks like he is enjoying his new dressage live down south

here are some recent pics

and at work


Bob is Brilliant …..!

We’ve always known it however, it’s always great when someone else lets you know!
“I would like to thank Lakeland Stud for the wonderful job they have done with B.Grandeur, I purchased him just over a week ago and it has been the most impressive week for me with a new horse. I have over 30 years experience with young horses and I have yet to come across a better mannered and educated quality 5 year old. He has been produced to a very high standard and is exceptional easy to train because of this.
I would highly recommend Lakeland Stud to all of my friends for their professional and honest service.”
Louise Brown, Sussex.

Winning Smile!

Horse: Bob - B. Grandeur, Uncategorized - March 13th, 2012

23rd February was a sad sad day for us and a very happy day for a new lady owner of our super star-gorgeous-cuddly-loveable Bob.

He has gone down to the South coast to practice his dressage skills! At 8.45 am the customer came to see him and by 11 am he was on his way down the road …

I guess she likes him as much as we do!

For his final photo call for such a handsome boy – here are some of the more recent ones …

Good Luck in everything he does!

Practising at Home …

Horse: Bob - B. Grandeur - February 23rd, 2011

Last weeked we seized the opportunity between rain showers (which is always the case in the Lake District) set up a lovely course of jumps and took the horses up to the school.

They all seemed to be on good form and enjoyed the idea of jumping at home.

Bob was mainly practising getting a nice steady rhythm around a nice course. He did plenty of turn backs and was looking at getting the right leg. He did really well and it was a fab afternoon.

Bob goes clear

Up up and away...
