Well maybe not as prompt as I promised.... but we have been so busy.... doesnt leave me much time for blogging.....
Our Show Horse team are all performed for 2012 which is relieving.... however the girls are so keen to ride at shows they want to keep competing.... hmmmmm
All horses went sensational at Country Hack Champs in Dubbo - 3 Champions... very happy owners!!
Equitana once again was a fabulous event... First time in Sydney, held at the Sydney Olympic Park... We competed two horses GLENDON BRAE SHILOH and MELODY PARK HEAVENLY PEARL.... Both horses handled the atmosphere and produced flawless workouts. They both did us proud and very deservingly won Champion in their sections. I must say it was a weird feeling competing on the 'Sydney royal' arena and it wasnt Sydney royal... Very much looking forward to the new look of Sydney royal Showgrounds which is currently undergoing some major redevelopments....
Speaking of Royals... Canberra and Sydney Royals entries have closed.... J & R EQUESTRIAN have 11 horses entered for Canberra Royal and 12 for Sydney royal.... undecided if im looking forward to that!! Busy much??
Our broodmares are blooming.... looking very much ready to pop.... waiting anxiously for whats inside them!!
We had a great day at Sydney Jump Club Comp on the weekend just gone. Havnt been to Jump Club since February .... ALTDAOR had her first ever outing (never left the property). She handled her self far better than expected. Very horse shy.... but once in the arena very focused.... I hope the fact she won her first ever class is a good indication for her future. The 4 horses we competed came home with 3 firsts and 2 seconds.... Happy horses, riders & owners.
ESH Champs this weekend.... First time we are competing at this show.... sounds like a fabulous day, seems very well planned and includes fabulous prizes!! lets hope any of the 7 horses can win some!!!
Then the Following weekend off to EA Nationals with SHILOH for a flying trip..... Back Saturday night to compete at the Sydney Showjumping Champs with 4 horses on Sunday.
2 more jumping shows after that..... Then that will draw a close to shows for 2011!!
I will be sure to post before the years end!!
Until next time....:P
