Day 3 - QLD State Dressage Championships
As predicted we started with a wet Day 3 and as the day progressed so did the rain!
Remi Lolita (owned by Sue Cornwell) was competing in the Elementary Championships. She warmed up like a trooper in the undesirable conditions. She was a little unsure about going into the arena with the puddles and the water but she went around a little conservatively with only one little disobedience which came from me being a tad too stron...Read Full Post »

Day 2 - QLD State Dressage Championships
All I can say is a was absolutely THRILLED to bits with both of the horses and all 4 tests that we competed.
Remi Lolita (owned by Sue Cornwell) competed first in the Novice Championship and then followed by Why Waltz Hotshot.
I left the arena with a grin from ear to ear after each test, just thinking to myself what more could I of asked for from these 2 horses??? Big pats and heaps of carrots!!!
Both horses remained calm, were...Read Full Post »

Day 1 - QLD State Dressage Championships
First I have to say; It has been so lovely to be back down here competing again. The riders have been so friendly and it's been great catching up with riders and friends that I haven't seen in ages!!!
Today was Why Waltz Hotshot aka Harry's day to compete. We had the Preliminary classes scheduled down to contest.
To say I was stoked with Harry is an understatement!!! I am thrilled to bits with the way this young horse has handled the ...Read Full Post »

Our trip south has gone well so far. We left on Tuesday and arrived into Caboolture yesterday around lunch time.
Both horses ate and drank the whole way down, in the float and during our rest stops. It's comforting to have happy horses during our travels.
As predicted it has been quite cool, even a bit of frost on our first night. ❄️
We took both horses for a look over at the outdoor arenas yesterday and did some light walk suppling work and the a short bout of...Read Full Post »

I gave my first online lesson today to the dedicated young rider, Bronte Blackwood from Townsville.
I've taught Bronte from PVS Training before and we've been exploring ways to offer online lessons to her and others that don't live locally. Bronte was excited to be able to have her lesson in Townsville with me teaching from my home in Bowen.
Although it's not quite as good as teaching in real time, having eyes on your work is still extremely beneficial and great. Thanks for lettin...Read Full Post »

We have many hours work and repairs ahead of us.
If anyone was unsure what happens when a cyclone comes through a horse property. Sadly here is ours. ����
No horses were on this side of the property. We had moved them to the other side.

The horses are very grateful that the wind has eased off considerably. All are safe and eating grass.
We'll keep them over the Kelsey Rd side for a bit while we repair all the fences on the Reibel's Rd side.
The old shed is tough and didn't budge which is wonderful.
So lucky that the trees fell away from the house and sheds.
We'll add more photos as we can get them through. Thank you for sending them through Amanda Patchett.
I need to add how absolutely amazing ...Read Full Post »
