Not sure we were all prepared for the freeze of ‘Quirindi, brrr! However, the horses did not appear to notice, and all performed well for Stuart. Alice Wheller’s SIR PEPPER plus our own DD, (Dalenna Daydream) were stepping up to LONG format – both completed with Pepper 3rd and DD 4th. Be my Daisy 2nd CCN3*-S and Gemma riding Tim Games DIABOLO 3rd. The event well run as always and great to have a Long format to get our horses qualified for the next level, which we achieved.
We have finally got around to having the Tinney truck wrapped. We are very excited about the new look, it is outstanding with the colours plus the sponsor logos, very eye-catching! You won’t miss us at an event, we will be easy to find!
A couple of weeks after Quirindi we took a small team to Equestriad. With Pepper now qualified he had his debut at 4star. He was fabulous all weekend with a 31 in the dressage placing him 2nd. With a flag issue he jumped XC so well despite and finished 4th. Daisy stepped up and won the CCN2* She is certainly turning the corner and looking fabulous for Stuart. Gemma rode The Barkers Sphinx CCN2* and placed 7th. A pleasing event and always happy to compete at Equestriad.
Stuart had the pleasure of riding in the brand-new BATES VICTRIX at the Melbourne 3DE- and he has been sold on this new design ever since. With impressive innovative colour trims not only is it fabulous to ride in, it’s beautiful! Gemma has also been very taken with the design, wonderful news from Bates saddles, plus can be ordered from any HORSELAND. The VICTRIX certainly suits any rider that wants a classy well-designed jump saddle. BATES have numerous dressage and jump saddles to suit any rider and horse – our team are prepared and competed in a range of BATES saddles – we are always appreciative of BATES support as well as HORSELAND.
