Yet another busy 2 months .. apologies that the newsletter has become every 2 months! We will try to get a hold of life and get back to the norm! This news we will work backwards, MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL- ALBURY- GUNDAGAI – Lots of travel down south and home again. Yes, we like to bring our horses home when possible. Even though often inconvenient!! Nothing like your own bed 🙂
Our breaking news would be that War Hawk will be competed by Gemma for the rest of the season or until sold 🙂
With Stuart’s position as Chef for WEG and lack of time until end of year- We are excited to announce that Gemma is thrilled to take the ride – however his sale being imminent
Melbourne International 3DE
Celebration wins the CCI** – Anna 3rd CCI***
Stuart had two super rides CELEBRATION finishing on his dressage score- Which has put him right onto the FUTURES SQUAD! plus, Sir Pepper- a very positive event with a glance off the 3rd element at the tricky coffin
We all went down to Werribee- which included Elisabeth Brinton (owner of Celebration) her husband Bob, Kerry Blair and Alice Wheller (owner of Sir Pepper) John and Jane Pittard, Anna’s owners- plus Sunny Barker .. IT WAS A GREAT TEAM!!! Thank you all for an awesome event and the results showed
During Alice’s HSC Sir Pepper has come to us for Stuart to compete- Pepper has been awesome in dressage and show jumping but has lacked the experience in the CC phase- who better to help that in a positive way!! Yep Stuart- Pepper is an awesome horse and with a year here we hope that Alice will be very competitive in 2019.
The awesome ANNAPURNA and GEMMA- What can we say but great partnership.
ALBURY and GUNDAGAI
Both events were just perfect for taking out our young horses. Both events full capacity plus great OC
We have been so pleased with our 3 horses that we imported from Germany last year. We had hoped that maybe we would sell one or two back into a great home here in Australia, but as they are all looking like super stars they are staying with us for the time being! Daisy and DD both went to Albury and Gundagai.. Stuart rode Alice Wheller’s Sir Pepper in the CNC*. Wasabi is on spell as she is still so young -plus we are concentrating on less horses at events (now that Stuart and Karen are going it alone at events)
GUNDAGAI Sir Pepper wins CNC* DD 3rd 105- Daisy (stop at water, no placing) ALBURY- Sir Pepper 4th CNC*- Daisy and DD both 2nd 105 classes
Gemma awarded Young National Athlete of the Year 2018
This last page is dedicated to my beautiful daughters Jaymee and Gemma, both of which I am very proud. Their riding achievements are too long to mention – Both rode through Pony Club, Interschools and onto International events. Here are some photos from your embarrassing mum and hopefully inspire other families- Riding is a fabulous recreation however you succeed in it 🙂
Corinna and Darren Huskinson’s WAR HAWK is on the market to be sold. In the meantime, Gemma will campaign him, and is looking forward to some great rides.
