Horse Scout is pleased to present a world class stallion that needs very little introduction.
Chilli Morning is fast becoming an icon and a legend in the sport of eventing. Partnered by three greats of the sport – Nick Gauntlett, Mary King and most famously William Fox-Pitt, this stunning chestnut by Phantomic rose to the higher echelons of the eventing world to become the first stallion in history to win the prestigious Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials back in 2015, following his World Equestrian Games Bronze in 2014. Chilli Morning finished his illustrious eventing career at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio as the highest placed British combination in 12th place.
Owned by Mr & Mrs Christopher Stone and bred by Rainer Schicketanz from Neustadt in Germany and sired by Phantomic and out of a Kolibri called Koralle. ‘Chilli’ has always been the most exceptional stallion and competition horse, with striking looks, scope and paces that were the envy of the eventing world.
Chilli started his career with a win as a 6-year old, in 2006 with Nick Gauntlett in what was then called Pre Novice, before finishing his first season with a 2nd place at The Pavo British Eventing Breeding Championships at Tweseldown. From thereon, as they say, the rest is history. A career spanning 10 years with numerous National and International victories including Badminton CCI****, Bramham CIC*** & CCI*** twice, The Festival of British Eventing and Houghton CIC***. Chilli Morning will forever be remembered as an eventing great, as we now look to the future to the progeny that are set to follow in his hoof prints.
Already proving very fertile, a string of Chilli offspring are already starting to make their mark on the world with Chillis Gem, ridden by Gemma Tattersall, representing GB at the 2016 Le Lion d’Angers Seven Year Old World Championships.
“Although Chilli needs no introduction and his results and reputation speak for themselves, it is still really important to let people know that he is standing at stud and that this year for the first time he is available for fresh/chilled AI. Horse Scout is a good way for us to get the word out and a great platform for people to get more information,” added Elodie Frost, agent for Chilli Morning.
“Chilli is now 17 so we will have to see how he enjoys his first season at stud and then make a decision about the coming years. I think it is very likely that there will be performance related selection criteria moving forwards. We already have some very exciting Chilli progeny and are looking forwards to seeing if they can follow in Dad’s footsteps!” added Elodie.
All enquiries regarding Chilli Morning should be directed through Elodie Frost.
Horse Scout is delighted to have one of the most exciting premium pony stallions in the UK listed with them. Chartsturmer WE is the exquisite, 4 year old, chestnut pony stallion, by Caramel FH and owned by Ann-Marie Manning and ridden by sister Jennifer Manning.
“We met the Horse Scout team at the Bury Farm Stallion show and agreed that Horse Scout would be a great platform to promote Chartsturmer WE from” confirmed the Manning sisters.
The incredibly smart Chartsturmer WE achieved his Premium status grading and licence with Weser Ems in Vechta, Germany in 2015, where he was only 1 of 5 colts to achieve the prestigious title.
At only 4 years of age this beautifully tempered pony displays three impressive and balanced paces. An elevated, powerful, yet graceful trot with a wonderfully active hind leg, a superbly active walk and canter, that already display so much scope and potential for his future, both as a competition pony and breeding stallion.
Purchased as a yearling, it has always been the Manning’s aim to both produce ‘Charti’ as a leading competition pony and breeding stallion.
“Our long term aim is to produce him as an FEI dressage pony, but also to help dressage pony breeding within the UK. We saw that the British Breeding industry was in need of a stallion like Chartsturmer WE, and it has always been an aim of ours to help improve this area of the industry” added Jennifer Manning.
Backed in 2016 Charti is now into his ridden career and will feature in the Northern Stallion Show later in March, along with Stallions AI in April. Ann-Marie and Jennifer also plan to aim him at the British Dressage Young Pony classes later this year, as part of his own competition pathway and to build his own profile as both an elite competition and pony stallion.
“He is aimed at the competition mare and we will be looking to work with approved mares, but he has only got one breeding season under him at the moment, with 2 offspring due this season. As much as it is our aim to support the dressage pony breeding industry in the UK, we have also had interest from the eventing market looking to produce smaller event horses with high quality dressage paces.”
Horse Scout are thrilled to announce ‘Billy Congo’ as the most connected Stallion of 2016!

Charlie Hutton – International dressage rider – Talland School of Equitation, Cirencester, Gloucestershire
Want to know what Charlie Hutton looks for in a dressage horse, how to get that elusive 80% and what it was like growing up at Talland? The international dressage star chats to Horse Scout and reveals the characters of his top horses, plus his insights into training them and his students
You’re the son of Pammy Hutton… were you born in the saddle?
Well, I don’t remember this, but apparently I started out riding in a basket on the back of a pony when I was just two years old. And then not much later I was put on one of my mum’s friend’s Grand Prix horses and was bucked off. It was downhill from there!
So you were always into horses?
No, actually I was always into sport and loved rugby and rowing but I wasn’t really interested in dressage until I was 14. Before that my mum used to bribe me and give me a pound every time I had a lesson — and let’s just say I wasn’t rich!
So what was your favourite discipline and what did you want to be when you grew up?
I jumped and hunted but the truth is I was more interested in the sausage rolls and port!
In terms of a career, I had high hopes of becoming an architectural engineer but then I got the dressage bug.
What made you change your mind and enjoy dressage? A particular horse?
No, for me it just wasn’t satisfying to walk, trot and canter. It was when I had the ‘OMG moment’ as I started to understand that you can communicate with a horse in such a unique way in dressage. Dressage requires such a wonderful bond with horse and rider. I remember at 14, going up to my mum and telling her I wanted to ride seriously and she just laughed because I think by then she’d just given up hope.
What’s your biggest achievement to date?
I’m still waiting for it! Seriously, I haven’t got what I want yet.
But if I had to mention the ‘stand out’ moments it would be going to the Youth Olympics where I won team gold and individual silver. It gave me a real taste of what it must be like to be at an Olympics. Another memorable moment was at Bolesworth this year where Super Blue and I won the feature event beating Charlotte Dujardin — the lap of honour was really magical because there was Carl and I trotting around together as winners and Super Blue really gave me everything he had that night.
And your ultimate goal?
I’d like to be on a senior championship team in the next few years and I’ve always had it on my list to go to the Olympics, although I’ve realised that it’s harder in real life than on paper… as there’s a horse involved, it’s not just about how hard you train.
So who has — and still is — influential in your training?
My mother, Carl Hester and I also spent a few months with the German Olympic team training under Johnny Hilberath.
What were the big lessons they taught you?
My mum taught me a huge amount about test riding, and how to be crafty in the ring, while my time in Germany, instilled in me the basics and how to be quiet and discrete — you have to sit still (you can’t move at all).
Carl? Well, he picks up on things that you’ve been struggling with and revolutionises your way of going, often by saying one line that you go home with, think about, try and then discover it works. As he often says: “The simple way is the best way”. He is such a wonderful rider and is someone I have always looked up to.
And you also teach/coach?
Yes too much! Last year I taught over 2,000 lessons and I freelance all around the world in Europe and America.
At what level do you instruct?
Any! I teach anyone willing and I get a thrill seeing people improve whatever their level.
What’s the hardest thing about being a coach?
Improving the connection with horse and rider. The rider needs to be able to feel… you can’t just say ‘kick now’, ‘half halt now’. It’s so subtle but it’s the difference between getting 70% to 80%.
Any tips on how to achieve this?
It’s appropriate to the person I’m teaching and I’m learning that being a coach is more about being a counsellor and psychologist. Some people take it far too seriously and improve when they’re reminded to go out, have fun and enjoy it. Others need their back side kicking because they can do it but they’re all airy fairy… then there’s the complex person with a huge amount of ability (but doesn’t believe it) and switches between ‘I can’t do it’ and then ‘I can’ and puts too much pressure on.
If I had to give one tip that applies to a lot of students it would be ‘Be brave — trust your instincts and have confidence’.
And you also coach your wife Abi… is that challenging?
I would say ‘no’ she would probably say ‘yes’.
At first it was hard, I wanted her to do better than anyone else and got too intense but Carl warned me: “Rather than you making your wife cry and go into another man’s arms, why not let me do that and let her run into yours”. I now try to take the pressure off and Abi has learnt that when she thinks I’m not right, I sometimes am (especially when I have video footage to prove it!)
How do you keep fit?
I ride around five to seven horses a day… I love sport and staying fit and do quite a bit of running and play squash from time to time.
Tell us about your top horses?
At the top level, there’s Super Blue, a 17hh, 11-year-old gelding by Showstar, owned by Judy Peploe. I’ve had the ride since 2013 and he’s now training at Grand Prix and competing at middle tour. He’s not much of a thinker but it suits his nature to let me set the rules. He’s also a bit spooky and notorious for standing on his hind legs in prize givings.
I’m also riding an exciting future prospect called Hawkins Rosanna, a powerhouse with huge potential and ability. She’s an eight-year old chestnut mare by Ruben Royale and again, owned by Judy Peploe. I’ve been riding her for 18 months and it’s taken a long time to discuss with her the principles of dressage — at the beginning it was her way or the highway! I’ve now built up a relationship and she’s listening more. It’s been a true test of character to be patient and not to worry that she’s behind in her development. I am lightly competing at elementary and medium and plan to do more at medium and advanced medium later this year.
So do you prefer geldings?
No, I’ve ridden geldings, mares and stallions and every horse is different. I had a mare that I trained that was so easy it took just four days to teach piaffe!
You can’t just put label on it but mares generally take a bit longer because hormones involved.
So do you look more towards breeding when buying a dressage horse?
To a degree, yes. Breeding is good on paper for when it comes to selling a horse. It increases value if there’s a particular stallion that’s famous.
And do you prefer a certain bloodline or type of horse?
If I have a choice I’d probably choose a German horse over Dutch but generally they don’t have to have big movement, I just want them to move loosely through the back and show elasticity and natural suppleness. It’s important to look more to their paces, ability and desire to learn.
How do you keep your horses fit, strong, supple — and happy?
We’re very fortunate at our yard to have a steep hill leading up to a ridgeway so we do a lot of work up that in walk or at a very slow trot to strengthen their hind quarters — if they have a slight weakness, going up a hill slowly helps them to move their legs in straight fashion.
They’re also lunged in the EquiAmi to encourage them to stretch loose, long and low and we also use polework — it’s important to keep a varied routine.
Why Horse Scout?
It has sleek and stylish branding and there’s plenty of content from horses and stallions to riders and trainers — it’s unique to have it all combined together in one place.

Fantaland Stallion Son Moonraker comes 1st at the 4 year Old National Championship, the showcase league for the champions of the future.
Moonraker a (Fantaland) stallion with a future. With a pedigree which includes a good amount of thoroughbred the quality just shines through.
Moonrakers’ sire Fantaland is a stallion with a breeding line for success in all disciplines, and Moonraker looks set to shine in the show jumping arena.
The 4 Year Old Championships at Stonliegh are judged on flexibility, an even speed and responsiveness to the rider. These young horses also gain points for presentation and their technique and Championship is won on cumulative points. Despite a slightly enthusiastic first round, and only his second competition on grass, Carron Nicol was delighted with her lovely young stallion Moonraker, who showed a willing and relaxed approach to his round with a good jumping technique. Enough to gain him more than a seventy point lead over his nearest contender Galiandra with Adam Botham.
Watching Moonracker school , nine months ago now, he has a lovely freedom in his movement, swinging well through his back in trot, and with an expressive canter, it was great to see him relaxed and working so well at home. Now, just a few months on he is making a great start to his career.
His Sire, another Carron Nichol stallion, Fantaland is bred to perform. His pedigree is a list of quality sires each producing successful horses for a range of disciplines, his daughter Fantasia (2011 x Canetty ZvCaretano) was a BEF Higher 1st Premium foal. From what I have seen of his offspring he is breeding true, and his four year filly x v. Con Air looks fabulous. Fantalands’ sire Lanjonker is an approved AES v.v. Langraf 1 with Fantalands’ dam Fantasia, a showjumping legend, with £200,00 + in her purse is by Olympic Concorde.
Moonraker certainly has the genetics to breed well and from his performance at Stonleigh he looks set to prove himself as a performance horse. Whilst he is so young (he had his first season this year) it makes sense to take advantage of a very reasonable stud fee.
