Kilcoy GP Show

Posted by Sharlene Smith on Tuesday, August 30, 2011, In : General News 
Due to the weather we only took three horses the first day and four the second.  Florina jumped a nice double clear in the 1.30m to place 3rd.  Guru placed 5th in the 1.20m Grand Prix, he nearly slipped so many times in the jump off but managed to stay on his feet for a good double clear.  Jessie rode very well both days on Just a Touch who handled the ground like the expert he is and kept Jess safe and happy.  Clem was very concerned over the grounds  on the second day opting to turn a circl...

Stubben Grand Prix Horse of the Year 2011

Posted by Sharlene Smith on Monday, August 22, 2011, In : Show Results 
Our series final round was the Caboolture World Cup.  With Florina and Hue & Cry opting to start in the Mini Prix it was a down to a two horse race between Cheezy Z and Dark Ages.  Cheezy had a strong lead and really needed a lot to go wrong not to win and that she did.  We were very happy for this super little mare to be named Queensland Grand Prix Horse of the Year.  The series is aimed at the most consistent and competitive horse of the whole season, Cheezy won both the Country and State T...

Caboolture World Cup Show

Posted by Sharlene Smith on Monday, August 22, 2011, In : Show Results 
We had a relatively quiet show only taking fiive horses  Florina jumped super placing 4th in the 1.20m class outdoors and then jumping double clear in the night time Mini Prix placing second.  Darky only started in the World Cup, he had the very small first fence oxer (1.30m) down and then the second fence which was the planks which he normally jumps so well, anyway not his day.  Jess and Johnny jumped very well in the Junior Table C.  Guru jumped very nice in both the Futurity and the C Cham...

Ekka World Cup

Posted by Sharlene Smith on Thursday, August 18, 2011, In : Show Results 
Darky finished 9th in the Ekka World Cup.  It was a big and very long track about 800m.  Darky jumped a four fault round in the first.  He was very late in the draw and only got about 10 minutes to recover before the second round which we think knocked him round a bit.  He had a couple down in the jump off.  We were extremely happy with him he is jumping great.

Ekka 2011

Posted by Sharlene Smith on Thursday, August 11, 2011, In : Show Results 
Well the Ekka kicks off this week.  We are very dissapointed with the decision by the Ekka Committee to put Florina into Group A.  She was entered into Group B, she is a still a B Grader.  Clem feels she is not ready to jump at a Royal at this level all show.  So she will have a week at home and be nice and fresh for Caboolture.  We did not enter Guru for the show as he is not very passionate about tight spaces and thought that the stables coiuld be a bit of an issue for him.  Darkie will go ...

Woo hoo Dark Ages placed third in the World Cup at Toowoomba.  It was a Qualifying Round for the Grand Final Series at Equitana with the first three placegetters getting a start in the final.  He jumped super with four faults in the first round and a great clear second round.  Noble Eros won a 1.30m Class with also a placed in the 1.20m.  Guru also placed in the 1.20m class as well as in the Futurity Qualifier but unfortunately a pulled muscle stopped him from competing in the final.  Jess ju...
