Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

International Jet Setter: All That Jazz by SS City Lights, is finding just the right note in his progeny.

The Anglo Arab All That Jazz is a handsome dark bay National Stallion Association Grade 1 Elite stallion. All That Jazz stands 16.2hh was imported to Biddesden Stud from Victoria in Australia as a colt. His sire is the Arab stallion SS City Lights who was bred in the USA and is nearly 16 hands. His dam is Belingo, an Australian Thoroughbred by Saulingo.

All That Jazz was always a tall colt with great scope to his stride. He has the softest and springiest of canters as all who have been lucky enough to ride him will attest.

He was taken through the ranks to advanced level in British Eventing by William Fox-Pitt and is a regular out in the field giving his riders some great days out. Number one fan Rory G attests that William Fox-Pitt “…rated All That Jazz’s canter as better than Tamarillos’”. (source: Samantha Clark for Eventing Nation published in the Arabian Horse magazine)

His foals have been successful in the show ring and have made a promising start in eventing their big strides and elegant steady head positions making them good rides across country.

All That Jazzs’ progeny are showing promise with:
Ajax  – Awarded the top marks for the two year old eventing section at the 2008 BEF Evaluations at Catherston.
Annaliese – A well made Anglo Arab mare on the BE circuit campaigned by Katie Cuthbertson had a great win at Daunsey park in ’13 and has 56 foundation points.
Edam – Was awarded Gold Champion Colt and Best in Show at the National Junior Championships of Malopolski Horses held at Białka Stallion Depot in Poland at the end of July 2014
Anthriscus (2010) – Took part in the Badminton British Young Event Horse Class in may is just starting out on his career as an event horse.
Music Man – 200 Owner Virginia Russell Wood Hugely successful two-year-old season taking Junior In Hand Anglo Arab Championship at the prestigious South East Arabian Horse Group Spring Show in 2014

Lauren Shannon …writes her professional rider profile

I am a British Event Rider, specialising in producing horses from youngsters all the way to four star and mentoring riders. I have represented Team GB at Young Rider level with a European gold medal in 2006 and finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th (twice) and 6th in National under-21 Championships between 2005 and 2007. Following very good results at the highest level (9th and 12th at Burghley and 17th at Badminton), I was long listed for the London 2012 Olympics. More recently we have moved into our very own purpose built yard and I am looking to expand Shannon Eventing from my new base. I am active in using the internet and social media to attract new sponsors to the sport of eventing and increase it’s appeal.

Professional Profile – Lucinda Fredericks

Eventing Olympian Lucinda Fredericks is an international trainer and travels extensively to give clinics and demonstrations as well as hosting training sessions at her own venue, Rosegarth, near Devizes view her Horse Scout Profile HERE!

How special would it be to buy the rider in your life a gift voucher for a private session with Lucinda Fredericks?

Her schedule for clinics for this year shows that she is in Hong Kong  at the end of a five day marathon of 5 days clinics and training out there.  As an official trainer of the Hong Kong Event Team, who took Bronze at the Eventing in the  17th Asian Games in 2014 (well done them!) On this trip she has been training the riders on horses which are retired from the Hong Kong Racing Circuit and she says how proud she was of the young racehorses retraining at her clinic (yesterday) in Teun Mun as they jump happily over 110m. And at this moment (according to her Facebook profile) she is putting a very handsome chestnut retiree through its paces over some XC jumps at Beas River Equestrian Centre.

Her experience and support of the Retraining of Reacehorses was also demonstrated at the The Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre  near Preston who have some fantastic pictures, taken by Trevor Holt and Ashley Stewart of a demonstration she hosted to a crowd of around 300 people in April – the event raised around £3,000 for the TRC.

With so many awards for Retraining of  Racehorses perhaps a group of individual training session with Lucinda on your own retired racehorse would help you along the way to one of the awards being offered by ROR Grassroots Eventing Series for 2015

There may be time to book places at the clinic at Charlotte Wadley Equestrian, Painswick, on the 7th February . (Individual spaces cost £60 + VAT (within a group of 4). Alternatively you can contact Lucinda’s team through Horse Scout to arrange for a session at her training centre.

She is holding clinics in February in  Holland  and Dorset, March in Berkshire and then she is back out to Hong Kong at the beginning of April

If you cant wait that long to see Lucinda then she will be talking about her Olympic experiences with Headley Britannia and Flying Finish, at the Equine Client Meeting in Frome at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 25th February being orgainised by Garston vets.
