Chestnut Ridge Sponsorship Scheme

Introducing the new Chestnut Ridge sponsorship scheme!
Are you a tack maker? Customizer? Video Blogger? Or anything else?
Want to get a discount on the models and supplies you need?
Well the Chestnut Ridge hobby sponsorship scheme is just for you!

How does it work?

You get 30% off selected purchases/items or free items depending on what it is that you do and the extent of your following.

In return all we ask is that you do the following things:

  • Help promote Chestnut Ridge – maybe you’d like to tell your followers about us or promote us in a photo story using our horses?
  • Create a tutorial, photo story, video or anything else using Chestnut Ridge products

The more you promote us, the more money you get off and don’t worry we’ll give you a push too in an exclusive new page on our website!

Once we’ve chatted and agreed details we’ll work out a deal, you’ll get a special offer code that you can use when promoting Chestnut Ridge (so we help reward your followers as well). This code also helps us track whether your promotion is generating business.

Running a Live Show, Photo Show or Other Event?

We already donate to every UK live show, from now on we will be adding this into our sponsorship scheme.
In return for our awesome donations all we ask is a bit of advertising for Chestnut Ridge. Whether it is on your Facebook group, website or in the show pack.
We are happy to sponsor other events in return for advertising, we have an amazing box of awesomeness that you could be lucky enough to receive some prizes from!

This is a great chance for you to get some money off and help promote your business, in return all we ask is you help to support us and promote us. The more money you drive to Chestnut Ridge the more money you’ll get off in return!

Southern Roundup 7

This show really was the end of an era. The last Southern Roundup show.

Lynne did an incredible job taking over the show and running it and for that I think we are all really thankful *sends hugs*

Was also great to meet a new face *happy dance*, hope to see you at many more shows in the future :D

Anyway, what you actually want is pictures I know.

Hot to Trot Live

Hot to Trot Live was held this Saturday and run by Jane. It was her first time running a live show, but you'd never have known that!

A lovely selection of models and a really friendly atmosphere. The climbing wall also looked quite fun!

There was so much talk about what mold it would be on but I bet none of you guessed this!

Yep it's a modified Ruffian, with man parts and a new tail...o and a cute little G2 Thoroughbred to go with him (although not sure if this is also modified to make it a boy :p)

And a Christmas ornament as well

Collector's Club Special Run Talulah - FOR SALE


Breyer Collector's Club 2015 Special Run Talulah

Darker variation of the two types (there are both lighter and darker variation). Condition is good, no rubs or marks that I can see, but does have the usual Breyer related factory flaws.

Stunning model on the ever popular Latigo mold, this mold does very well at live shows. She is beautiful in every way, gold with dapples! What more could you want?

Model is hard to find in the UK and is a special run for Collector's Club members only from Breyer USA.

OFFERS END FRIDAY 17/07/2015 at 18.00!!

Starting Offer: £115

2nd class standard postage is free - can also send by courier or special delivery or 1st class. She can also be collected from Hot to Trot Live or Southern Roundup.

If offers go over £130 I will through in free Special Delivery postage.

Payment by PayPal, Cheque or Postal Order or cash on collection from either of the above live shows.

Payment must be made within 24 hours or the horse will pass to the second offer along.

I will post updates on offers in this advert - please note horse is being advertised for offers elsewhere as well.

Someone has a big bum :p

New Babies

I have new babies in my possession! Came today.

First up is this years Collectors Club Special Run - Talulah. Compared to last years she is so much better. Yes there are still an unbelievable number of factory flaws but she is very pretty and not rubbed or damaged (unlike Rajah)

Her name is Talulah and her show name is CRS On Parables

Because postage was so pricey just for her she came with friends to make it seem more worth while! At least that is my excuse.

First up are Glitter and Gem

CRS A Little Fable (Glitter)

CRS Poseidon (Gem)

And also El Blanco and Sedonna, wasn't sure where my wire cutters had disappeared to so they are staying in their box for now!

El Blanco is called CRS Abweisung and Sedonna is CRS The Bucket Rider
