With WEG now behind us -we can now concentrate on our own team of horses back here in AUS. It has not been too bad Stuart being away for parts of this year, it gave the young horses some time to mature and grow in their training. With Stuart only getting back into the Country 3 days prior to Canberra CIC, the pressure was on us riders here at home to see if we had done a good enough job!! Thank fully all the ponies went well, so we keep our jobs!!
CANBERRA was somewhat hectic with 9 horses in all from TE barn. 6 rides for Stuart, 2 rides for Gemma and 1 ride for Tara Rogers our rider- As much as we all love Eventing, this was a stretch for us all!! Thank you to Kerry (owner of Sir Pepper) for your help plus evening entertainment!! Plus, Gemma’s girls Fin and Tish- you are now icing experts 🙂
Just a snap shot of which horses Stuart competed and how they went. In the CIC2.5* Our own WAR HAWK did a fabulous event with some time CC to place 4th. Our own LEPORIS stepped up and looked awesome in the CIC** again time CC placing 6th. The 2 girls Daisy and DD solid in the 1 star with a 5th and 8th. Elisabeth Brinton’s CELEBRATION only dressage and SJ this event (a little too pudgy for CC but he will start again at Goulburn) Alice Wheller’s SIR PEPPER looking better every event with a 10th CIC*.
The timing of lack of winter events for us here at TE certainly slotted in with Stuarts commitments at WEG plus a trip to the UK for a family wedding plus some non-horsey activities on the Cornish coast for Karen and Irene (mum) Canberra was a great run for our horses, Gemma’s too, with Tim Games DIABOLO moving into the CIC** and The Pittards ANNAPURNA having a run to the water – With Adelaide in their sights. Events coming up for TE- Goulburn State Championships, Albury CIC followed by The Australian 3DE (Adelaide) then close to home Wallaby Hill 3DE.
