Nick Skelton’s champion five-year-old showjumper sold abroad

Nick Skelton’s winning five-year-old, Billy Bilboa — who he describes as a future grand prix horse — has been sold to Ireland where a young rider has taken the reins.

The Billy Stud home-bred is by top stallion Plot Blue out of the Cevin Z mare Billy Corrib (a half-sister to Pippa Funnell’s great event horse Billy Walk On) and was the top-priced four-year-old when selling for £79,000 at one of the Funnells’ popular young horse auctions last year.
