Sponsored Team Feature - Stacey and Felicity Bould of Holloway Stables

Posted by Zoe Weston on March 24, 2015 at 6:15 PM

Holloway Stables is very much a "family affair" with sisters Stacey and Felicity and their parents Karen & Garry Bould, working together. Stacey has kindly offered us a peek into her journey that has lead her to many successes in the show ring.

“It was obvious from an early age that horses were going to be a major part of our life’s journey, starting out on a Shetland pony and an old 12.2hh pony. The rule was simple: when we could ride them bareback, we were allowed a saddle.

From there we attended Pony Club, Dressage days, Combined Training days, One Day Events and started showing in the Fun Ring. It was there that Felicity looked over to the Open rings and pretty ponies and said “mum, I want to do that”. Just like that we stepped up to the next level in showing.

In my teen years I gave up riding, choosing to pursue other interests and leaving behind Felicity who continued to go from strength to strength in the saddle, competing at HOTY and Royal Level with her hacks and pony, Dainhill Forget Me Not.

When I came back to the sport some seven years later the search was on to find me a horse. After looking at a few different horses, I came across a foal photo of a little bay filly trotting around that caught my eye. A couple of months later once weaned, Willowvale Devotion (Dolly) arrived home from SA. it was love at first sight, she is my soul mate, best friend and can never be replaced. It was working with Dolly my passion had changed somewhat from riding to focusing on the in-hand work with babies.

Our next purchases were Xtra Style of Sefton (Jnr), again whilst on his dam and a yearling TB filly from QLD to be named HS Roulette (Chutz). Felicity has done all the training with Chutz and is achieving great results in the ring and soon to enter the dressage arena. They both have their sights set on competing at this year’s Melbourne Royal and hopefully in the near future, the Garryowen. I’ve also achieved great success with Jnr, who was a multi supreme champion in-hand.

It was through the purchase of Jnr that a wonderful friendship was formed with Maggie & Will from Sefton Riding Ponies, who are like family to us. Maggie has helped us along the way with guidance and offering an amazing opportunity to show some of her stunning ponies. We currently have Xtra Violets of Sefton to come out in-hand this season and as a future saddle pony, which we are really excited about.

It has been really rewarding to see our hard work and dedication pay off in the show ring over the last couple of years. I was lucky enough to have a very special friend who rode Dolly for me and they were an amazing partnership to watch with wins VASA Ltd, SHC, Barastoc, Summer Royal, Melbourne and Adelaide Royals. Wins I had only ever dreamed of.

Owning horses isn’t a job for us, it’s a hobby we fit in before and after work. We work hard with the ponies and to-date have never had the opportunity of buying an educated, pre-performed horse, we have started green horses.

We brought 18 acres located in Bayles, Victoria to house our growing number of four-legged family-members, and the dream of breeding a few foals. It was through Dolly, that Holloway Stables was formed with our first home bred baby to carry the prefix, Holloway Xtra Diamonds. We look forward to our second baby due this season out of Willowcroft Magic Dreams by Dresden Ace of Spades, to further cement the Holloway name."
