I would love to know if anyone can tell me anything about Aldwych Arabesque, aka April (Sunray Scelebrity/Llanarth Rosetta). She was born on 14/4/95 and I bought her from BabsR when she was almost 2 and had a lot of pleasure and success showing her in hand. Sadly I found that by the time she was 5 pressure of work meant that I could not do justice to two ridden horses and I sold her to a showing home quite nearby and was able to keep in touch. When her rider grew too tall for her (and bought a bigger half brother) April went to a showing home near Edinburgh where she was successful over a number of years in BSPS showing and Pony Club. I believe she was sold again about 2-3 years ago, possibly still in the Edinburgh area, to a mother and daughter who do Riding Club activities with her, but I have been unable to find out anything more specific.
Any news would be much appreciated - many thanks.

Why didn't I think of that? She is registered with both AHS and WPCS but I don't know who issued her passport as she just had the registration document when she was with me. Thanks for the suggestion .

Thanks for that, tracingequines. I did find her on NED but there was no information other than her breeding so next port of call will be WPCS.

I'm bumping this up in case any of our new members recognise the name. Her last known address registered with the WPCS is with the Whiteford family near Edinburgh, which is the last address I had too - Nicola Whiteford competed her successfully in BSPS classes and Pony Club. I am going to put her details on Scottish Rider FB page as she has not been re-registered and I feel she may have been sold locally rather than to a showing home. She is the only horse I have ever sold and I would dearly love to have news of her.

I lost touch with Kath after we sold April to Carly Brewer - please remember me to her when you see her again. I remember the first time we met you you told us that you had known April right from her birth. I'm just hoping that someone will recognise her on FB.

Thanks Verena; I have just seen Kath in one of your FB posts about your mum and whippet so I have put in a friend request. Yes, April was a stunner, and I really hope I can find out how she is. I never expected to sell her, but things changed at work and that was the end of the 'for ever' home I had planned. x

On what would have been Garnet's 32nd birthday I finally found April and I am happy to tell her AL friends that she has a lovely home, is fit and well at age 20 and recently completed an endurance ride! I'm so happy!

I am, Callisto - she is the only horse I have ever sold and to hear that she has been in the same loving home doing a wide variety of things is just wonderful - I have thought about her so often since I lost touch with her.

Agreed - she was always on my mind, and I see from the first post I have been looking for her for more than 4 years - just shows you should never give up hope! I also have a lot of new FB friends via looking for April and selling a harness on Friday which shows that it is a wonderful tool when used for the right purpose and not as some people do!
