Not sure where the past 8 weeks have gone, but we normally knuckle down and have enough news monthly, but a slow start to the season with the inclement weather, cancelled/postponed events we started to get used to the slower pace! With a trip to Brisbane for the EA National awards, where Stuart was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his contribution to the GOLD medal at the SYDNEY OLYMPICS- It was lovely to have the family together at the NSW Sports Awards, especially Jaymee who is busy finishing her double degree at Macquarie Uni, plus working full time 🙂 March too saw both Stuart and Gemma long listed for the OCEANIA Australian team, Stuart for the senior squad and Gemma for the Young Rider. ( Melbourne 3DE )
March was a busy month for awards plus nominations. Stuart being nominated for NSW Sports person 2016. We were honoured to receive Stuart’s induction into the EA Sports Hall of fame.
It was lovely to get out to a competition after so many delays- Equestriad certainly know how to do an event ! Great OC /volunteers and super vibe all round.
TE took out a full truck- We celebrated Stuart’s win on Elizabeth Brinton’s ‘Celebration’ and again with Gemma’ s win in her first CIC***. Alice Wheeler’s ‘Sir Pepper’ 4th- Corinna and Darren Huskinson’ s ‘War Hawk’ 12th- With Wanda coming in 9th. Gemma and Anna, owned by John and Jane Pittard coped with the down pour during her CC round like a real pro ! We are all so proud of Gemma and her growing partnership with Anna, we are looking forward to watching their journey.
Briefly, we just took a sneaky trip down to Tasmania, with brother Dave ! Great place, totally loved it, every bit of it ! Thank you Tasmania for such a fabulous eye opener on how amazing you are with so many things to do !
