So after many hours of hard work Roger and I have almost completed replacing the posts and kick-boards. The surface has been ordered and we should see completion of project in about a weeks time. That’s if the rain stops!
We are very pleased to get underway with the refurbishment of our outdoor school. We are replacing the kickboards and laying a new sand/fibre surface! Sorry for the inconvenience but all should be back to normal within next few weeks.
So off we went to Equifest for Robert and Serena’s last show together and they didn’t let us down! Every class Serena was pulled into line in a lower position than what she was actually placed, as every time she rode her individual show she rode like a dream and both Serena and Robert’s performance was a pleasure to watch, especially the evening championship which again they went round beautifully in. It was an entertaining championship as some of the horses became over excited with the atmosphere but Serena reassured Robert throughout and both did us all proud. From 5th placing to 2nd placing throughout our time at Equifest was just great and what an amazing way to end Serena’s and Robert’s partnership in the show ring together. A big thank you to Helen for allowing Serena to compete Robert for you over the last few years and also a massive thank you to Stephanie for getting Serena and Robert to this standard together, a lot of work from all of you has certainly paid off.
Silver Sophia and Tinker had a amazing day at GWC showing show.
Silver and Sophia won an amazing first place in ‘young handler’ followed by second place in ‘condition and turn out’ and in their last class they got another amazing result…another first! Silver and Sophia made it into the championships with an amazing outcome of being pulled in as champion. Later that afternoon in the fun dog show Sophia competed Tinker her new puppy and was awarded best puppy!
On Sunday the 5th of august we traveled to the GWC Showing Show with Mitsy,this was Mitsy’s first show as she is only 6 years old and just being introduced into the showing world. Mitsy was a very good pony and despite the very hot weather we came 3rd in novice pony and 2nd in novice ride…..so well done Mitsy!
