There is nothing like a buildup of events, Stuart OS, preparing horses for Adelaide and Wallaby Hill PLUS a family wedding in Thailand! BUT to our amazement we pulled it off, thanks to all the team around us. ALL horses pulled up so well and fit- for those who didn’t know- Gemma won the CIC3*-S on Tim Games ‘Diabolo’ 6th in the CCI3*-L on Wanda. Our own fabulous favourite gelding ‘Leporis’ 2nd in the CCI5*-L Very excited about this result 🙂 Sadly Elisabeth Brinton’s ‘Celebration’ was struck down with a cough which needed time and treatment, so missed out on Adelaide. He is all better now thank fully, just bad timing Charlie!!
With a great finish to 2019, we will move forward towards selection for the Tokyo Olympics. We have some super less experienced horses (Dalenna Daydream, Daisy, Sushi and Pepper) which will all be out in the higher levels next year. We are also keen to sell some horses as it is impossible to ride them all at top level.
To top our very successful event in Adelaide (which is the most amazing event and always so welcoming) Stuart took out THE ANNA SAVAGE award for best and fairest- The foundation was set up after Anna’s tragic death during a horse trials in 1997. Stuart has won this prestigious award 5 times since. A great honour.
Wallaby Hill! Stuart went on to win the CCI3* on our own ‘Be my Daisy’- this win helped put Stuart 9th on the global FEI rankings. Nice Christmas present for him!
We have had a very loyal relationship with all of our sponsors- Bates, CopRice, Horseland and CEVA- all have added to our successes, horse’s health and well- being. To our amazing team of sponsors – THANK YOU.
On the yard we use Proteq and Ecomist, two outstanding products, again THANK YOU for your support.
Not forgetting our again loyal horse owners, Tim Game, John and Jane Pittard, Elisabeth Brinton and Kerry Blair (plus Alice of course) We could not have more nicer, appreciative, and enjoyable people with us on this journey with our equine friends, THANK YOU 😊
