The Futurity programme is held throughout the UK every August with over 800 foals, yearlings, two and three year olds coming forward. Horses and ponies are entered for the discipline they are bred to perform in and youngsters destined for top level careers in dressage, eventing, showjumping or endurance are identified during the series. Each horse is evaluated in hand and loose in an indoor school as well as undergoing a vet’s assessment.
Demelzas Dream is out of Claire's mare Jaffa's Gold, (s. Welton Adonis, d. Aquila Real) and by Landtanzer. Claire South, from Linton in Herefordshire, has owned Jaffa for 10 years and during this time has competed in British Showjumping competitions as well as other disciplines. Claire now hopes to event Jaffa at unaffiliated and possibly BE 80/90cm before breeding from her again. She will return to Meadow Bank Stud's Landtanzer because Demelza, not only oozes quality, but also has a lovely temperament. Claire is most grateful to her family and friends who gave her so much support.Also presented at the ceremony, were British Equestrian Federation (BEF) and British Eventing (BE) Young Horse Breeders Medals to recognise the successes of British bred sport horses. Awards were given for the highest placed British bred horses from the KBIS British Equine Insurance sponsored Young Horse Championship hosted at Osberton International Horse Trials each autumn. One of these awards was presented to Christine Hardinge, breeder and rider of the 4 year Domino Derval SHB (GB). Christine not only bred Domino, but also owns and competed his sire, the advanced event horse Crown Amazonite who stands at their yard at Ballingham, Herefordshire. Domino Derval, who is out of Donnavita, was 3rd in the 4yr old Young Horse Championships at Osberton and was the highest placed British Bred horse. Mrs Valerie Gorringe from Peterchurch, Herefordshire, is very involved with both the Herefordshire award winners as she is the owner of Domino Derval and bred Jaffas Gold, dam of Claire South's winning yearling. Endurance rider and breeder Chris Wray from Cwmcarvan near Raglan also received an award for his homebred colt foal Kamili (Shuawaiman Al Rais x Cloud Stepper) who was the highest scoring foal in the endurance horse section across the UK national young horse evaluation days. On returning home from the Hartpury evaluation day, Chris was delighted to find out his foal was the highest scoring foal throughout the UK.

Herefordshire based Whittal Seeds grass seed catalogue has three exclusive mixtures for the equestrian sector. The comprehensive free catalogue is available to farmers, horticulturalists and those related to equestrian across the Midlands and Wales.
New and improved
Whittal Seeds is an independent farmer owned and managed business specialising in the production and retailing of grass seed. The catalogue includes agricultural, equestrian and amenity grass seed mixtures - as well as cereal seeds, forage crops, green manure and cover crops. There are three horse and pony mixtures within the catalogue, including Hay and Haylage Mix, Monnow and Laminitics Mix. All three mixtures are suitable for horse, pony and general paddocks and the varieties within each mixture are designed to improve the health and wellbeing of the horse - with flexibility to sow at a rate suitable for paddock conditions.
Hay and Haylage Mix
Where grazing and hay or haylage are required the agricultural perennial within this mixture produces the bulk needed for a good crop as a 2 year ley.
This is a very durable and quick establishing mixture enabling an extended grazing season with excellent resistance to poaching. It’s suitable for grazing throughout the year.
This specialist mixture reduces the risk of laminitis by not creating bulk grass from high sugar ryegrasses and instead providing a palatable blend of fescues and timothy.
Knowledge from the ‘grassroots’
Whittal Seeds, led by 3rd generation farmer, Philip Whittal, is located west of Hereford at Bowling Green Farm. Since 1935 the Whittal family have been growing grass seed and recent investment in a seed processing and packaging plant saw the business venture into direct retailing to farm and equestrian sectors in 2011. Since then, the business has established a wealth of customers across Herefordshire and the surrounding counties. By overseeing the complete production process from seed growing, harvesting to blending and finally bagging - Whittal Seeds has control of every stage of the process to guarantee a high level of quality and service.
Philip Whittal, Managing Director of Whittal Seeds, comments; “Grassland is an important element of livestock farming and for livery yards - and I am a big advocate of the saying that ‘you get out what you put in’. Working with Whittal Seeds, we can develop the right grass seed for you, taking into consideration your system, land and objectives to ensure that we can advise on the best seed to deliver the most productive results. Grazed grass is one of the most cost effective forms of feed; therefore a well thought out re-seeding programme is key at this time. Our new seed catalogue includes a variety of grass seed mixtures to suit a diverse range of uses, soil types and topography – as well as cereal seeds, forage, and root crops, green manure and cover crops. To pick up your complimentary catalogue and for more detail on the mixtures to suit your requirements, please contact our sales team at our Herefordshire Office.”
A customer of Whittal Seeds, LN Cosker from LN & LE Cosker, a leading merchant of hay and straw within Herefordshire and the surrounding counties and that also has a 25 horse livery, added that the; “Seeds deliver on value and quality, friendly helpful advice.”
