‘HOT GERMAN HORSES’
With a huge gap in the calendar, what else would you do but take yourselves off to the European summer and ride horses in their heat wave ! Great introduction for a move to Australia we hope. With all that sorted, which takes some organizing, we have made some lovely purchases.
The trip started in Germany where we saw some nice horses, some average ones and 3 SUPER ones!! Which of course we bought.
Three mares, 4yo Hanoverian Decurio/Wanderfurst (Diarado line) 5yo Oldenburg Darkdream/Saint Cloud (Donnerhall line) and 6yo Hanoverian Barclay/Davignon 1 ( Belissimo M line)
All 3 have now landed in Australia and will be with us end of their quarantine late August. (pictures next news) With our horses also having a midyear break, we have had them all back in work for 5 weeks and took them off to THE RIDERS SERIES first show for 2 months- It was windy and bitter, however the horses did not seem to care! Stuart took 4 ( War Hawk, Wanda, Leporis and Celebration) Gemma riding Diabolo. Saturday saw War Hawk 5th -1.20m, all the younger horses jumping super without a place. Sunday War Hawk came 3rd in the 1.30m and Wanda 5th in the 1.20m. Big classes so very happy with them all. We are taking the team show jumping for the next few weekends before we get back into our Eventing Season finally 🙂
FUN, FAMILY , PASTIES and some work:) in CORNWALL and UK
We had a lovely few days with family, visiting old pubs, wine bars and yes Cornish pasties ( sorry no pics, sad face)
While Karen came back to Australia to get the yard ready for the coming events plus settle Steph into her new business- (quietly wanted to get the garage sale sorted 🙂 Stuart head off to Aachen to support the AUS team- which was an amazing event by all accounts. Aachen or Garage sale- priorities may be somewhat front to back !
