Joining White Hart Stables as an unbroken Holsteiner broodmare, 11yr old Silvia has enjoyed competition at BE3*. Excellent opportunities await her in 2013.

Bossy is nicknamed Bossy because she is just that... Bossy! Everything is done under her terms. Even when turned out in the paddock, she would jump over the fences into the paddock she wanted, and then back into her own paddock! Bossy really does think the grass is greener! So to stop the continuous jump fencing, she goes out alone and we literally open the stable door so she can go where she likes. We now nickname her `Free range Bossy`. She likes to sunbake and will spend hours with her head stretched out from the stable to catch as many rays as possible. Likes being scratched under the jaw and will twist head accordingly.

We bought her as an unbroken 6 year old who couldn’t jump. She put Warren on the floor on a regular basis when we were breaking her in, and getting her started - but it was always a buck and a twist and that was the end of it.
