The season has been slow to get going, then we had back-to-back competitions! We also do a bit of showjumping in our spare weekends, so not alot of time to relax the last few months! Being on the SYD3de committee also takes up an amazing amount of time. However, we just manage to squeeze in what we love 🙂
Briefly, we have had some great results with our young horses, establishing them in 1*. They are young so keeping them confident is a priority. Albury, we had 2 x wins, ‘Caruso’ and ‘Fernhill Aisling star’ (Ash) Canberra a 1st ‘Caruso’ and 3rd ‘Ash’. Hilton has been off his game lately! Adjusting to his step up into 3*. Plus, a 20 for ‘Viennese’ at Canberra was a shock to us all!
Not reading a fence in front of the water jump- mistakes can happen, rest assured Stuart will not let this one pass! Looking forward to some great runs in 4* next year on ours, Kerry Blair and Alice Wellers amazing ‘Vinnie’
Some of you may wonder what ‘Cat Fish’ is up to? ‘Cat’ is such a fabulous young horse in body and mind, so we are allowing him to mature in his own time – Lots of outings, show jumping and training at home. Next year hopefully he will be more balanced and ready to take on the world of Eventing. A very special horse, just needing more time than the others.
A special thank you (again) to our supporting sponsors that always come up with the ‘goods’ when we have appearances- A very successful open day for Riviera Horse Floats, thank you for having us!
Sydney 3de by all accounts was truly successful! As Patrons of SYD3de plus committee member it is always busy time. However, this year it was a little better with Stuart not riding but ticking off his Level Course Design at the FEI Officials seminar- So only Gemma is the 1* and 2*. which certainly is not as stressful as 3 and 4*! Loved the new arena and loved that our own personal sponsors CopRice, Bates saddles and Horseland fully support the event, and us. We had The Bates Saddles water complex and seating, The CCI3* class sponsored by CopRice and then the Horseland Hospitality tent! We hope that you will all support us again next year for the SYD3de in November 2024.
Our Christmas addition will be with you soon, a lovely way to share our gratitude to all. Why not support our sponsors and buy from their web sites? A Gift voucher from Horseland, your feed merchant that sells CopRice, a belt from Bates Saddles, some Ceva products from Horseland- the list is long!
