SYDNEY – TOKYO – UK – SYDNEY
This week, finally we have some news worth sharing- We have confirmation of 2 events, Wallaby Hill and Equestriad, we also have a date of return for Stuart from UK and lastly, we would like to announce we have SOLD our beautiful Tokyo horse ‘Leporis’ (Leo) to a fabulous young rider in the UK.
Eventing in December plus brand-new home for ‘Leporis’
It is with no doubt we have missed almost a whole season of Australian Eventing due to COVID-19. We recall that we have had only 4 events this year! With 2 more coming up next month. We can’t thank Wallaby Hill (3/4/5th DEC) and Equestriad (18/19th DEC) for finishing the year with their events. Next year is looking more promising! The thought that we are one year older is not so great!!!
Stuart is now packing to come home, 7th November. It has been a long few months, with our ill-fated Tokyo Olympics he decided to base himself in the UK, possibly do some events with the intent on selling ‘Leo’. We are delighted that ‘Leo’ has found a tremendous 5* home in the UK with a young rider. We are thrilled that ‘Leo’ will have the chance to shine on the European circuit, such a wonderful result for such an exciting young talented horse, and rider.
Time to regroup! It has been a taxing time mentally for everyone! What excites The Tinney’s now??? Stuart returning number 1- (there are so many jobs here after 3 months away!! we have missed him 🙂 however Gemma’s plumbing skills are getting much better!) number 2- to ride another favorite, Elisabeth Brinton’s ‘Celebration’, that has to be up there in ‘excitement!!!’ We will not take ‘Charlie’ out this year, as Stuart will not have had the time to prepare him, plus being Course Designer for Wallaby Hill does not allow him to ride sadly. Gemma has been an active member here, riding the team left. She is planning for Tim Games ‘Diabolo’ – The Blair/Wheller’s ‘Sir Pepper’ plus our own ‘Be my Daisy’ to go to both events, under the guidance of Stuart. ‘Dalenna Daydream’ will take to some showjumping and return to Eventing with Stuart in 2022. Number 3- holidays in the sun, now we can travel it has to be a must for us all 🙂
