Again, a bi-monthly news- Winter months are a little slow for competitions however we managed to find lots to do, as well as training our lovely team of horses, we took ourselves to QLD for some sun. This news features Tamborine 3DE, Equestriad and SJ Rider Series
TAMBORINE 3DE with Gemma and Annapurna was a trip certainly worthwhile. Gemma’s trip was to qualify herself and Anna for Adelaide 4 star, which she achieved with a credible 2nd. The event was very hospitable, weather was awesome, plus the event was well run and worth the drive (Thank you Rachael Lee for the company, and your great result too – podium finish) We will go back next year, the course was tough but great lead up for a 4 star.
EQUESTRIAD at Camden a few weekends ago, Stuart flew home on the Thursday and rode 5 of our team that weekend- The horses performed very well, Stuart was a question at times!! But the team kept him full of Electrolytes and Encouragement!! All horses in the top for their dressage phase, most clear SJ and XC taken easy – Gemma taking the ride on War Hawk winning her dressage on a 28… Her first event on him so could not be more pleased. Gemma took her first fall on XC on Dab (yes 1st, not to say she has not fallen doing other equestrian tricks!) An exciting event!
We were very happy with a quick one-day SJ day at The Riders Series- Winning 1.20m (Celebration) 2nd (Wasabi 1) and winning the 1.30m (Wanda) With Stuart now away with EA High Performance as Chef Equip, TE will slow down for a few weeks. Coming back with a full-on calendar for the rest of the year- Working closely with our team to compete at Canberra, Albury, Goulburn – With the view of both Gemma and Stuart riding at Adelaide 4 star. INTERESTING times. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE WEG EVENTING TEAM- Sending them POSITIVE, WINNING VIBES. Cheers TE
