  • Peelbergen

    24th October 2016

    Vegas was in the money again last weekend, this time in the 1.30 classes. Julia is pretty happy to have him back on the team. Georgie is also getting to know her two new rides, completing lovely rounds in the 1.35 classes on Vedor and in the 1.20 classes on Blinky. They will be more than ready to step up next time they have the chance. There is a lull in the show schedule now, however, which picks up again late November for Madrid, Paris and La Coruna.

  • Vegas is Back!

    17th October 2016

    After a very extended time out due to major damage which meant he had to grow an entire new hoof, Vegas is finally back! He was pretty excited to be boarding the truck again, and his first show was also the team's first show of the indoor season, at Lier in Belgium. For his return to competition Julia started modestly in the 1.20 speed class on the first day, finishing on a clear round and even a respectable time which had them in the prize-giving ceremony. Well they should have been, but read more...

  • Voltage Stars Again

    17th October 2016

    Brooke was not supposed to be riding at all after a recent injury, but she just couldn't resist the allure of the Showcase of Showjumping. She only took the one horse, and what a sensible choice that turned out to be, with Voltage winning the prestigious final of the Super 7 & 8 Year Olds. What a star.

  • Valdez and Jane Report In Again

    17th October 2016

    From Jane after Lynton: "Vail really did hit form this weekend (apart from a mediocre dressage test where his nose was way too itchy to pay any attention - shame really as we moved up 12 spots with our SJ and XC). Seriously classy clear showjumping and the most amazing feel XC. Only his 3rd PreNov and he felt so happy doing it… and wasn’t even blowing or sweaty when we got back to the float. He's a proper athlete!"

  • Nations Cup Final, CSIO Barcelona

    23rd September 2016

    Eighteen nations were represented in the first round of the Nations Cup Final in Barcelona last night, and competition was tough. The course was big with plenty of tricky questions which saw a few experienced combinations come to grief. Julia and Vedor were second out for Australia, and they did us proud with just one rail down and a time fault. Edwina and Ego van Orti were our first starters, with three down. Then Evie Buller and Stanley made their debut at this level of competition and read more...

  • Vigil (Visage-Toddingham)

    12th September 2016

    Gemma Kennedy took Vigil to Quirindi Show on the weekend but decided the going was too boggy for jumping. So she took him into the hack ring instead. And picked up blue ribbons for District Show Hunter, Lady Rider and Open Show Hunter. Visage's children are definitely versatile! XX

  • Boneo Park

    11th September 2016

    Brooke had a successful weekend at Boneo Park, with Voltage showing off as usual in the Mini Prix series, finishing without a rail over the entire three days.

    9th September 2016

    Kaden Weaver has started Vigor who is full brother to Vermont 2007, owned by Abby West, and Victoria 2009 who is currently turning heads at Boneo Park with Brooke. Kaden thinks Vigor will go far in either eventing or showjumping, with his excellent movement and bold attitude.  Kaden has also started Charm, who is out of Vigor's full sister, and he is pretty impressed with her as a type too. She's a big, solid girl with excellent conformation and balance, and a great canter. Both are due read more...
