Quotation from
William Funnell
The Billy Stud has bred quite a number of exceptional young horses by Cevin, including
Billy On Show, Billy Laden, Billy Brass, and Billy Mexico who has been graded with AES
as Cevin's first licensed stallion son. See Billy Mexico's page for more information about

William Funnell was also quoted in
Horse and Hound magazine as saying that a Cevin
4-yr-old, Billy Dinero, will be going for approval as another stallion prospect and that
"Dinero is talented and a laid-back sort who takes everything in his stride", and that
"These two [with Billy Um Bongo] are the most exciting young horses we have bred since
Billy Congo."

In 2012, Billy Dinero traveled to Lanaken, Belgium to the FEI World Young Horse Jumping
Championships where he jumped two clear rounds to qualify for the 5 year old final. He
jumped an excellent clear round but collected just one time fault to finish 14th out of 240

Cevin's mare Borough Pennyz has now moved up to Advanced level, finishing 7th at
Bramham CCI*** and 6th at Blenheim CCI*** in 2011 with rider Vittoria Pannizon, showing
that they not only have the jump, but the trainability/rideability to score in the low 30s in
their upper-level dressage tests. In addition, in 2008, 2009, and 2010, Cevin's young
show jumpers either won or had top placings in the British Young Horse Show Jumping
Championships, proving his consistency in producing top jumpers.

A Cevin son, Valetto JX has been a multiple winner at 6 bar competitions (videos on

Cevin upgraded from Grade C to Grade A in one year. He was retired at International

CSI4* Chantilly FR - A4 - 4th place
CSI4* Chantilly FR - Accumulator - 6th place
CSIO4* Lisbon POR - Accumulator - 12th place
CSI3* Vimeriro POR - 2 Phase - 7th place
CSI3* Vimeriro POR - 2 Phase - 5th place

Cevin is now being ridden by a teenage boy in "Children on Horses" classes in the UK,
with great success. What an amazing stallion!
