Well.... It has been a long while since I have written a blog.... ALOT has been happening during this time..... Plenty of big news happening @ J & R EQUESTRIAN..... The sad sale of Mitsy our beloved truck to make room for our new big Black MAN... An unfinished product at the moment..... finished enough to carry horses to shows, the aim is for it to be completed early 2012. We have been travelling here there and everywhere lately including Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne Royals, HOTY, other Grand national qualifiers not to mention a million and one Ag shows inbetween, chasing performances for our first season horses... Brisbane royal carried out with a few ups and downs.... firstly I broke my arm Jumping, Eva and I had a slight steering issue.... This happens often!!!! Then we were shocked when we were notified about the death of a close friend/long term Vet - Andrew Thompson. On the up side Rhys and Gerry (RS CRESCENDO) began their World Cup jumping career, having a very impressive first start... Followed by an even better second in the Adelaide World Cup Qualifier. He did not start at Melbourne.... due to the surface and Gerry not settling with the atmosphere. Eva (JS VITINA) jumped fabulously at all three royals and has now gone B grade - eeeek .
Our jumping horses were turned out when we got back from Melbourne royal and will only do 2 shows in december, due to so many hack shows.
All of our clients show horses have been performing tremendously.... with some very pleasing results. Congratulations to all our clients on their and their horses results of late and a big thanks for supporting and trusting/believing in us!!!
We still have plenty of big shows plus 5 Ag shows coming up before the years end. we head to Dubbo in 2 weeks with 7 horses for the Country Hack Championships, Shiloh (GLENDON BRAE SHILOH) has been accepted to competed at the prestigous EQUITANA Show horse Championships, after that we have 7 horses also competing at the ESH Championships... of which J & R EQUESTRIAN is delighted to be Platinum sponsors, then Our last Major hack show for 2011 will be the EA Australian Nationals in Werribee... Where Shiloh has been invited to compete. We will tie our trip to Werribee in with another Jumping show in Tonimbuk the same weekend, we will take 4 jumpers.... Then our last show for the year will be The Sydney Showjumping Champs at SIEC.
We are also proud to announce the recent sales of JR DIRTY DEEDS, BAMBOROUGH BY DESIGN, DEMOCRACY And ASHMEAD FAIRYTALE. We wish their new owners the best of luck with these fabulous horses!!!!
I promise I will be more prompt with my blogs (=
