VIENNESE at The Mansion grounds, ZEEP Melbourne International 3DE June long weekend
We are going to work backwards with our news. Werribee, Sydney, plus Quirindi. After an exhausting few weeks in the lead up to The ZEEP Melbourne 3de, we did OK! Gemma taking out 4th in the CCI4*-L on our handsome ‘Diabolo’ and Stuart 2nd in the CCI2*-L on the very attractive ‘Viennese’. We also had our ‘Be my Daisy’ in the 4*-S with her now jockey Shane Rose, coming in 2nd, so pleased with this partnership. Shane taking the ride while Stuart concentrates on Course Design for 2022. Both Dab and Daisy now qualified for WEG 2022 in Pratoni (Rome) September 15th-18th. Congratulations to both riders 🙂
Just stepping a few weeks back, a few badly timed injuries, plus Stuart away OS and getting our property ready for sale!!.. Organizing horses, houses, rides, staff was somewhat hectic! However we managed..’team work’ to its max! We all loved being back at Werribee, can’t imagine why we missed the cold, wet and gusty wind but we DID! Loved seeing all our Eventing mates out again in full swing, it’s been a long awful few years for everyone- Eventing holistically embraces us, and we came to VICTORIA smiling 🙂 Well organized event with lots of entertainment.
A fabulous show of horses, full entries, plus great combinations in all classes.
A month before we had The ARIAT Sydney 3de, Stuart course designer so unable to compete, plus being on the committee it becomes a frenzied event for us Tinney’s! Stuarts first run on his new horse ‘Vinnie'(Viennese) at Quirindi saw him win the CCN2*-S.. great result for his new part owners Kerry Blair and Alice Weller. Tim Games ‘Dab’ winning the CCN4*-S .. so a good event after the long drought of Eventing here in NSW.
In between we took ourselves off to The Sydney ROYAL, winning the 6 bar (again) .. always a fun few days entertaining the crowds!
BE MY DAISY (Daisy)
With the two major International 3DE’s now over, we can take some time to rebuild our team of horses. We have one wonderful addition ‘Vinnie’ however we are on the hunt for a few more young horses. Stuart is travelling overseas to work as assistant course designer (Aachen being his first) back home to compete, then back again to the UK. With Stuart’s work abroad it will bring wealth and knowledge back to the Aussie shores, which all eventers will benefit from 🙂
