The Winter Qld Show Series kicked off at the Gatton Ag Show in the third week of July.  We are the Jumping Ring Organisers at this show and are very proud what a super two days of competition we had.  Riders from four states lined up and the jumping was super.  Our team were a little short on work as we are so busy with the show but did not disappoint with wins and placings.

Next show is the fancy GHP Grand Prix Show at Kilcoy we took a big team over of 7 horses.  They were all super our young horse The Jackpot (Elias/Florina) was just super with double clear rounds in the tough young horses classes, this ones going to have a big future.  Alite stepped up to the Bronze Series with some super rounds and a 8th placing.  Copabella Tattiana once again super competitive with placings in the Silver Series and the Speed Championships.  Guru and Delilah both great in the Grand Prix Classes with Delilah placing 4th & 6th in both GPs and Guru winning the Stangfever Grand Prix.  Clem rapt at getting to drive the convertible red mustang on a winning lap of honour.  Jess and Limo were placed 5th in both Junior Qualifiers putting her in poll position highest qualified junior for the final.  Very proud of all her rounds on both Colin and Limo around the tough technical tracks in Ring Two.  Kiwi Gold a visiting horse to our team jumped extremely well in the Silver Tour.  Was a fun show.

Next stop Gatton World Cup Show where Alite certainly showed she is a big part of our team.  The 7 yo by Alimo out of Alice was 2nd 7yo National Young Horse Qualifier which earns a spot in the final at the Australian Show Jumping Championships and then she was 2nd Future Stars which was a very hotly contested class of some of Australia's top young horses.  Delilah and Clem were named on the Queensland State Team for the National Teams Challenge Event which the boys went on to win.  Delilah was 2nd 1.45m and then had an 8 fault round to place 12 th in the World Cup[ Class.  Unfortunately she could not jump off due to a bruised stifle.  Guru was great also with an 8 fault round also in the World Cup but disappointingly being the only 8 faulter not invited back for the second round where 8 faults could have gained 4th place.  Delighted with Justin Wilksonson's horse Kiwi Gold which stepped up big time to the very large Mini Prix Class in which he jumped a very credible 4 fault round,  a truly lovely horse.

Next stop Caboolture World Cup Show.  A few less on the team this weekend with both Delilah having a rest and Kartoon de Breve not quite back in work yet.  The horses were all great jumping some super rounds with Guru placing in the WC Warm Up Class 5th and then 12th in the World Cup.   Alite placing in the Future Stars Class and then having her first Mini Prix start with just one down.  Kiwi Gold jumping better and better jumping a cracking round in the WC warm up class, then 4th in the 1.30m and then Clear and four in the Mini Prix Class will be sad to see Kiwi go home.  Jess went as fast as she could in both the Junior Classes they were built a tad on the small side for a World Cup Show and the pace too fast for her scopey big horses.  She gained great experience and jumped super in the Young Riders and Future Star Classes.

We are extremely pleased with the team and they are having a much earned quick spell before they are back into work in preparation for the Boneo Park Show and the Australian Show Jumping Championships in Victoria next month.

Big thanks to our fabulous owners, friends and supporters and sponsors could not do it with out you.
