Apologies for the lack of updates during 2014! At the beginning of the year I made a move south to Bungendore NSW, and am well and truly settled in now. So not as many shows as usual but I did manage to fit a few in!
Salisbury Masterpiece has a successful year placing at Canberra Royal in all his classes and was awarded Best Novice Show Hunter Galloway and 2nd open show hunter galloway at Sydney Royal. He qualified for Grand Nationals at Northern NSW Hack Championships wining Champion Show Hunter Galloway and Champion Childs Show hunter galloway. I am pleased to announce that I have purchased Sherman and thanks to Di Jose for entrusting him to me.
Nanteos Autumn Glade and Shelby Bragg have also had a successful year winning Reserve Champion Small show hunter pony at Sydney Royal, Supreme Ridden Exhibit at the APSB Nationals, placing at Canberra Royal, Runner up owner rider at Northern NSW Hack Championships, Top ten NSW HOTY, and Jena Bragg rode him to win the NSW Interschool Championships primary showmanship.
Naomi Fetherston has had a great first year with Redlands Ivy Six taking out many championships at shows and qualifying for Sydney Royal. She went on to compete at NSW HOTY where she was top ten newcomer large pony and placed in childs and owner rider.
Lara Christoffelsz won her first garland with Redlands Outrageous taking out Supreme Hunter of the show at the Canberra classic. Lara was lucky enough to purchase a new pony, Bamborough September Song and has performed her for Canberra and Sydney Royals next year. Lara was also top ten junior rider at NSW HOTY.
We have a new addition thanks to Windsor Park Belvedere and Xemplify of Sefton. “Lola” is a gorgeous bay filly. Many thanks to Karen Shaw who is doing a fantastic job looking after my two girls.
This year I will be showing Salisbury Masterpiece, Redlands Happy Feet, and the newcomer Ariston Leading Lady. Stay tuned for more updates.
