I thought it was about time I introduced a news page to our website to keep everyone up to date with all that has been happening!
The year is going so fast as our favourte run of shows for the year are nearing to be over. we are already into the 6th week of the year and have already done 8 shows.
Our horses are all in great form and are going really well.
The last show we competed at Was Berry Ag Show. Last year most events at Berry were cancelled due to large amounts of rain and this year we had to compete in Extreme heat.
Keen or just stupid?? We took 7 horses to Berry in the 45 degree heat, but it was worth it.
5 show horses and 2 showjumpers.
All were in great form Russel (JR DIRTY DEEDS) was 2nd in the hotly contested D grade and Gerry ( RS CRESCENDO was 3rd in the A & B Grand Prix.
Shiloh (GLENDON BRAE SHILOH) got Supreme Hack of the show. This horse is improving more and more every show.... hopefully soon he will be over his show ring antics and be brave enough to cope out on his own in workouts.
Susie (YARRAMINE SUPREME) got Reserve Champion Hack - she did not handle the heat so well, getting very upset by all the flies and being covered in sweat!!
Summer ( GLENDON BRAE SUMMER) was ridden by young Jamie Priestley to claim Reserve Champion Rider and also won Childs Gallloway. Jamie did a super job considering she had never ridden Summer before and literally got to know her, going around the ring.
Dolly ( RAMANA PARK CARTINA) was Champion Led and Ridden Warmblood.
In between classes we went to the beach a few times to try and cool off and on Saturday afternoon we took some of the horses to the beach also, which was great fun!!
We have Nowra Show coming up next Friday with Gerry and Russel then Pitcher Partners Grand National Qualifier on Saturday and Sunday with the show horses...
Will try and post updates as often as I can :roll:.
