Gilly Slayter – Owner & Trainer

Gilly began riding at the early age of five. Through her riding career she has competed in FEI level Dressage as well as FEI level Three- Day Eventing earning recognition in both. In 1996 Gilly earned her USDF Silver Medal for achievement at Fourth and Prix St.Georges Level. She was also part of the 1992 Area X Three- Day team that competed in Bromont Canada at the NAYRC and again in 1996 as part of the Region V Advanced Young Riders Dressage team to compete at Temple Farms at the NAYRC. She went on to develop her own Advanced level event horse, Simply Larry, who she purchased in 1995 as an un-started three year old. Still having goals in the competition arena for herself, Gilly continues to take lessons and clinics for herself which brings a constant changing dynamic of information to her students. She was a member of the 2003 USEA developing riders squad. In 2011 Gilly passed the USDF L judging program with distinction.

Simply Larry – The Master

Larry was born in 1992 and is a TB gelding. Gilly started Larry when he was just 3 years old and was able to compete him to the Advanced Levels in eventing. Larry has competed through to the CIC*** level. He is a tough horse but will teach you anything you need to know once you are ready to know it. Larry loves to jump and go fast. He can turn himself inside out for the perfect distance. He loves Mrs. Pasture’s Horse Cookies and will do anything for them.

“Horses who are successful in competition these days are extraordinary movers and powerful, careful show jumpers. But finding one who combines all this with the look of eagles is nearly impossible. Thus when we compromise, we must compromise on the horse’s movement, not on his agility. I now recognize that more than ever these are the qualities we need, qualities of the horse’s spirit. Certainly we need great movers and powerful jumpers, but above all we need a partner, not a slave. We need horses who are supremely courageous, fiercely independent and phenomenally agile.” ~ Jimmy Wofford

Basti has grown up to be a lovely willing creature. He will melt your heart with those huge Brown eyes and his muzzle has the perfect velvet for a snuggle but be careful he loves to kiss and they are sloppy.

Manny stands at 17 hands and has a heart as big as he is. He is a lovely ride with manners of a perfect gentleman. His bedroom eyes will talk you into feeding him lots and lots of treats. He is a wonderful addition to Simply 3-Day.
