We have some super news from Horseland with the addition of Gemma to their team of sponsored riders. ‘ I was very excited to join the Horseland team of sponsored riders, I know I have big shoes to fill alongside dad and the rest of their sponsored riders, but I will try to represent the brand as best I can ‘ Gemma said
September saw us go to Waratah Show jumping @ SIEC with our team. War Hawk and Wanda just jumped fabulously placing in their respective classes with ribbons in the 1.25 and 1.30m- The younger horses, Celebration, Leporis and Diabolo (with Gemma) all jumped well, looking very special for the future.
SYDNEY @ SIEC Eventing
Finally we had an event. It was perfect that our horses had been out jumping the weeks prior, they were all settled and worked beautifully. Stuart nearly claimed the Tri Fecta- however it was not to be in the 1 star on Darlis Reen’s Roskymar Prince Noreah (FOR SALE) , unfortunately Stuart got an error in the dressage when the boots did not come off before he trotted into the arena- A lesson to all ! ( sorry to dob you in Darlis!) Winning the 3 star on War Hawk (owners Corinna and Darren Huskinson) plus winning the 2 star on our own Wanda. Both young imports Leporis and Celebration doing their 1st 1 star – Celebration ( owner Elisabeth Brinton) running 6th and Leo 14th. Both these 2 horses have taken to Eventing like ducks to water ! We are so pleased with their progress and attitude.
Our cute new imports and ‘Medusa’ jumps into mini prix’s with Jess Brown in the saddle
Some good news for us is that the 3 girls from Germany have all settled into their new lives in Australia. All have super brains and appear to have the talent to go with it- The 4 year old ‘Wasabi’ (Stuart is on) The 5 year old ‘Daleena Daydream’ ( Karen is on) and the 6 year old ‘Be my Daisy’ ( Gemma is on) YES that’s truly their names and we are sticking with them 🙂
We have also partnered with Equus Australia ( Rod, Cathy and Jess Brown) with ‘Medusa’ We are all very excited that ‘Dusa’ will be doing what she is very good at show jumping 🙂
Every month we will feature products or information from two of our most loyal sponsors . This month we are going with Horseland and Bates saddles. Firstly it is so awesome to see Horseland sell such an amazing product range now, the choice of horse rugs, tack and the apparel and crash caps ! Plus one of our favourites Free Jump stirrups. It’s always an exciting going into a store ! We recently went to our local store (DURAL) to attend their VIPizza night ! Great fun:) BATES saddles are the only saddles we choose to use on our horses, their range and fit is extensive, they are AUSTRALIAN made and they continue to evolve. We are so happy with their range. We can help you with your choice ( if you are local).. Our preferred dressage saddles are the Innova mono LUX , The Dressage LUX and for jumping the Elevation LUX.
