Dark Bay Gelding, 17.1 hh
Painted Black x Beaujoulais

Owned by: Julie Lockey. Anne and Patrick Moody.

‘Jack’ was bought by Julie as a yearling – largely because he was by her favourite stallion at the time – Painted Black. He came to Moody Dressage as a newly backed 3 year old and it didn’t take him long to win Becky over with his work ethic and movement. Anne and Patrick bought a half share soon after!

Jack’s competition record speaks for itself – he was incredibly successful as a young horse, winning many National Young Horse Championships and finishing 7th at the WORLD Young Horse Championships in Verden as a 5 year old.

His winning ways have continued up through the levels to Grand Prix. In 2017 Jack and Becky represented Team GB on the Nations Cup Team at Hickstead, finishing 2nd individually in the the Grand Prix Special. In the same year they finished 4th at the National Championships in the Grand Prix.

When representing Team GB in the Nations Cup Team for a second time in 2018, Jack unfortunately picked up an injury which took him out of action for the rest of that year. After a good recovery it was disappointing that he then secured 2019 off with another injury.

Despite the impact of the pandemic in 2020, the time was put to good use in his strength and training and finished the year competing at the National Championships at Hartpury in December.

Bay Mare, 16.2 hh
Houston x Cabochon

Owned by: Jo Cooper. Pat and David Webster.

Becky first saw ‘Iris’ in 2018 when she was in Holland looking at horses with a client. Iris wasn’t quite experienced enough for what the client was looking for. Becky had taken quite a shine to her though and a few months later Iris arrived at Moody Dressage.

Iris and Becky spent 2019 training at home developing their partnership and Iris’ education. In March 2020 Iris and Becky made their competition debut at Myerscough Premier League, finishing 2nd in the InterII.

Much of 2020 was a write off due to the pandemic, however the pair achieved an excellent score over 73% at Grand Prix subsequently securing a place at the National Championships at Hartpury in December that year. Iris and Becky finished 9th in their second ever Grand Prix and first ever Freestyle.

Iris has a real talent for the difficult Grand Prix movements but equally enjoys some down time hacking and jumping!

James Bond II

2014
Black Stallion, 16.2 1/2 hh
Desperado x Fidertanz

Owned by: Jo Cooper. Pat and David Webster.

‘Q’ or ‘The Stud Muffin’ was bought by Jo when he was a 3 year old. Q is graded by the KWPN – one of only XX dressage stallions that year. His outstanding movement and gorgeous temperament make him a top prospect as both a competition horse and breeding stallion.

In 2019 Q and Becky were second in the Novice Winter National Championships at Hartpury on a score of nearly 78% (and just 1/2 a mark behind the one and only Charlotte Dujardin!). That same year Q won the Summer National Championships at Elementary level.

Jack Diamond

2014
Bay Gelding, 17.1 hh
Electron x Diamond Hit

Owned by: Jo Cooper. Pat and David Webster.

‘Legs’ came to Moody Dressage as a just backed 3 year old stallion. His movement is quite spectacular and he won his first ever 4yo class with a fantastic score.

At the semi-finals at Hartpury though, he was quite overawed by the whole occasion, but after impressively ditching Becky almost directly at Carl Hester’s feet (having arena sand brushed off you by the God of British Dressage is really REALLY embarrassing). Legs got his stuff together though and went in to finish 3rd with another excellent score to qualify for Nationals.

Jagerbomb

2014
Bay Gelding, 17.1 hh
Dante Weltino x Jazz

Owned by: Becky Moody.

Bomb, Bomba or Boomba was bred by Becky. Bomb’s mum was a beautiful Jazz mare who was training at Grand Prix when she damaged her fetlock sadly ending her competition career 😦

Bomb is loved by pretty much everyone. He may not have the worlds flashiest movement but his heart of gold and brilliant work ethic make up for it.

In 2019 Bomb was second (on collective marks) to his stable mate James Bond II in the Elementary National Championships.

Bomb is showing the potential to be a really good Grand Prix horse as he has such an ability for the difficult work. If he gets a bit excited out hacking his default reaction is to piaffe!

Heavenly Kiss BS

2012
Bay Gelding, 18.1 hh
Furst Kiss x Don Schufro

Owned by: Becky Moody. Julie Lockey.

Hector, or the Hectorsaurus was bred by Julie Lockey. He came to Moody Dressage as a 3 year old and has kept us both literally and metaphorically on our toes ever since!

Hector has had much competition success and his main claim to fame being that in 2017 he won the Novice Winter National Championships – pushing Charlotte Dujardin off the top spot!

Eureko

2009
Chestnut Gelding, 16.3 hh
Uphill x Cabochon

Owned by: Jo Cooper.

Bert came into Jo’s life in 2014. Luckily for Becky, Jo was working away in London at the time so Becky was able to steal the ride a few times a week while Jo would ride at weekends when she was at home.

Becky competed him at Nationals every year from 5 year old classes all the way through to InterII. Bert and Becky also competed for GB in numerous CDIs.

More recently, as Becky has began to focus more on the up and coming horses, Hannah has competed Bert a little. Jo still rides Bert too when she is at home from her job in Madrid!

Lancelot BS

2016
Chestnut Gelding, 16.2 hh
Dreamboy x Lancet

Owned by: Jo Cooper. Anne Moody.

Lance was bred by Julie Lockey. He joined the Moody Dressage team when Jo and Anne bought him as a yearling. Lance is currently being ridden by Anna Burns who is doing a super job with him. He really is beginning to look quite exciting…

Magic Dream

2017
Chestnut Mare, 16.2 hh
Govenor x Swarovski

Owned by: Becky Moody. Jo Cooper.

‘Shroom’ was bought as a newly backed 3 year old from RD horses in the middle of the Covid pandemic. She is the first ridden horse that Becky has ever purchased from a video and the first time she rode her she ate sand pretty quick…!

That was thankfully just a very unfortunate sequence of events as Shroom is an absolute babe that everyone is super excited about!

Cal1

Caluna

2002
Bay Mare, 16hh
Saros van’t Gestelhof x Kroon Juweel

Owned by: Julie Lockey. Hannah Moody.

Julie bough Caluna as a 3 year old after she had been spotted at a jumping yard by Kelly Oxtoby. Caluna is a legend, beautiful, kind, sensible but lovely and forward, good in traffic, perfect to do, basically the horse everyone wants!

Hannah had huge amounts of competition success with her and when Hannah was pregnant Becky took the reins and together they won the InterII at the Summer National Championships. Caluna had many great results at Grand Prix with both Hannah and Becky.

Caluna now spends her days hacking (babysitting the young ones!) and helping the Moody clients learn about the more advanced work.

Wallenstein

2001
Black Gelding, 17.1hh
Weltgeist x Donnerhall

Owned by: Julie Lockey.

Julie bought Wally from Katy Haldervale when he was 4 years old – he was the beginning of her love for black ponies!

Wally and Becky were a successful partnership competing up to Grand Prix. The pair won all 3 classes at their International debut at Hartpury CDI when Wally was just 7 years old.

Wally has also helped (in his own very special way…) to educate many of the Moody Dressage apprentices along the way including Laura Jarvis and Samantha Brown.

Wally now has a part-time Mum in Jane Cash who rides him when her busy NHS schedule allows. The rest of the time, like Caluna, Wally helps educate the young ones (both two and four legged!).
