Shingle Hall Senator is by Carnaval Drum, the top BHD sire, who produced the first ever British bred World Champion, Carnavelly, whose outstanding performance ensures he is the only horse ever to have won the German Classic at Brehem and the Berlin Grand Prix in 1988. In 2001, his achievements continued by winning the Hickstead Derby Trial, and at Olympia winning the World Cup Qualifier. The 1999 Festival of Show Jumping saw Carnaval Drumís progeny become the highest placed British bred 5 and 6 year olds in their classes.



Handley Barns Babe is a SHB(GB) graded mare who is out of a mare by Handley Barns Grandee who was himself by the prolific sire Dallas. Dallas was a Grade A showjumper who sired many championship winning stock include Hello Oscar, Hello Feliz, Dexter The Fourth and Burghley horse trials winner Diamond Hall Red.



Handley Barns Herve was exported to the US in 1999, where he was gelded and competed, having a successful career initially as a Showjumper and then with his next owner he was successful in both Junior and Working Hunter classes.
