Meet the team
Philip & Julie Nixon
Philip and Julie run the family farm and spend the summer supporting
daughter Pip at national events. They own Arctic Cruising & young horse
Simba, and both enjoy Shooting and Hunting during the winter.
Philippa has grown up with horses, hunting since the age of 5. She started eventing at the
age of 12 with her pony William, with whom she competed at Pony club eventing
championships. She completed her first CCI 1* at Weston Park, representing Northern
England on Dunloughan whirlwind in 2013. Top horse Arctic Cruising travelled to Camphire,
Ireland for the CIC 1* in 2014, representing Northern England, jumping a double clear.
He then won the 2016 Pony club Open championships, and this year jumped clear at
Houghton CCI 2* Young Riders championships. Philippa runs the competition yard at Little
Whittington and has a great string of young horses
through to 4* eventers.
We have a lovely,friendly yard of horses, supporters, owners and sponsors, all of whom make up Team Little Whittington.
