Canberra CCN was first up for 2019 for our team. Sir Pepper (The Wheller family) just missing a win in the CCN2** with a close 2nd. Daisy was well behaved and came 8th. DD unfortunately was left at home with a virus and Wasabi having a quiet run in the CCN1* after having a virus a few weeks prior. Equestriad was to follow with a full truck for Stuart. All our CCI4* horses came in 8th,10th,11th and 12th- All pulled up fabulously and ready for another event.
‘Quirindi was an awesome event with great OC and going, plus strong enough course in the top levels.
We had very pleasing results with all CCI3* horses, DD 5th, Sir Pepper 7th, Daisy 13th. BUT the best result was Elisabeth Brinton’s Celebration winning the CCI4*. Yes, we did Celebrate, after our long trip home.
Thankfully the punishing summer weather is behind us! Equestriad and Quirindi were examples of the summer leaving (hmm maybe not the Sunday @ Equestriad!). All our horses are being so enjoyable at home and at events with super performances at all three of their first 2019 ode’s.
GREAT NEWS is that Gemma and The Pittard’s Annapurna has been selected as a Reserve combination for the AUS verse NZ Oceania Championships in NZ next month. This is great opportunity for them to be part of EA HP team training. Thank you, EA HP 🙂
SYDNEY International 3de 26th-28th APRIL – follow and support this event -it’s shaping up with great numbers, trade stands, tailgating parking, Riders and Owners tent PLUS the Horseland Hospitality tent.
Stuart (and Shane) were invited to ride in an entertainment section, The 6 bar, at The Sydney Royal Easter Show. Our own Leporis jointly won jumping 1.75m along-side Shane and the famous Vicki Roycroft, who is the bright age of 66! -it was fun plus a great crowd.
Just a reminder that it is that time of year when you need a broad spectrum all wormer- abamectin plus morantel Tartrate for bots. We highly recommend AMMO. It is what we use, safe, easy and works!
Our horses travel on PROTEQ bedding. Helps them not slip if wet, limited dust and smell. Come take a look at events if you want more information.
