Ben Faerie xx 


Future Faer is by the great ‘Ben Faerie’ – sire of Ginny Elliot’s Olympic medallist ‘Priceless’ and European Champion ‘Nightcap’, and more recently Pippa Funnell’s European Bronze medallist ‘Walk On Star’ & Tina Cook’s ‘Faersferre’. He is also the Dam-sire of Pippa Funnell’s Lexington & Burghley double CCI 4* Winner ‘Primmore’s Pride’.

Future Faer is out of an irish hunter and although backed, she has always been a broodmare. She has substance and strength, which when crossed to TBs in particular, produces tough but quality horses.

Her 2002 foal by Primitive Rising completed her first season eventing as a 5 year old in 2007, with the outstanding record of 8 double clears from 11 runs, with a spotless XC record.

Her 2007 foal by Future Illusion was the Joint Highest Graded Foal of the Day (from 28 foals presented), and Joint Highest Graded Eventer across ALL ages (Foals to 3 year olds) at the British Equestrian Federation Futurity Grading (Arena UK). Her 2008 foal (Future Fine Illusion) was awarded a double 1st Premium as an eventer and showjumper, and her 2009 foal (Future Fleeting Illusion) was also awarded a 1st Premium as an eventer.

Future Faer ceased breeding in 2009.
