We had a successful weekend at Friends of Ballarat Eventing Association Horse Trials last weekend. Congratulations to the committee who have had to overcome many trying circumstances, at last it all happened and in glorious weather too! Sam had 5 rides and they all performed really well and gave us things to work on too! Woodmount Lolita (Lily) took the win in the 4 star. Koyuna Tactician (Tom) was strong in the 3 star dressage and produced his best showjumping round in a long time. Some miscommunication with his rider in cross country meant he was retired on course but [...]
What a brilliant event we had last week at Wandin Park. Many thanks to Jarryd Stanley and the whole team involved in running such a huge event, the OC did a fabulous job and the grounds looked stunning! Sam had 9 rides in total so it was hectic right from the get go. Woodmount Lolita (Lily) stole the show for Fiona Mitchell winning the 4* to give Sam his first win at that level! But the rest of our team produced some amazing performances too! Koyuna Tactician is back at 3 star level and is proving he will be [...]
Cross country day in Adelaide has been great! Lily was a super star and flew around the 3* clear and under time to move her into 3rd position going into showjumping! I couldn’t be happier with her and so glad to be able to share it with Fiona Mitchell. Calypso went around the 4* clear picking up just a couple of time penalties but gave me a great feel most of the way! He ate up the course and has moved into 4th position but it is with many mixed emotions that I announce that Calypso has been withdrawn from the [...]
A couple of little blips in the dressage today at Adelaide but very happy Lily held it together, currently sitting 7th in a field of 47 after dressage. And very proud to have been selected as a member of the Victorian Team!! Thanks to everyone who helped get us here. Calypso dressage at 9:07am tomorrow, then bring on the cross country and showjumping on the weekend!!

Here are Sam and Woodmount Lolita nailing their winning cross country round at Melbourne International 3 Day Event! We think Lily was amazing considering how new she is to this level! Thanks to Rider Video for the footage.
We always love Melbourne International 3 Day Event! Janet McPherson Houghton you once again did a fantastic job running a super event! Our team had brilliant results, Woodmount Lolita maintained her impeccable record and took out the biggest win of her career to date in the CCI2*L, and the 2 6yo horses Santoro (Emma Riseley) and Wimborne Conjuror both in the placings (2nd and 4th) in the Young Event Horse class. Jaybee Calypso thoroughly enjoyed being the centre of attention in the 4star dressage demonstration too! Of course these results do not happen overnight, they only happen when each [...]
I don’t think you could wrap up a season any better than this! Fiona Mitchell's Woodmount Lolita has taken out the CCI**L class at Melbourne International 3 Day Event!!! What a special horse and support team! So many thank you’s to come but for the moment Lily is enjoying her paddock and definitely having a well deserved rest now.
On the weekend Fiona Mitchell's Woodmount Lolita added another win to what can only be described as a phenomenal season! Friends of Woady Yaloak Equestrian Association and all the volunteers did a great job running the event, thank you to all those involved and A Bit In A Bucket for their sponsorship of Lily’s class. Sam also had Jaybee Calypso in the 3star and he finished his season with a very credible 4th place. Wimborne Conjuror took his time on cross country to give him a confident round for his first time on a 1star course and we were very happy [...]
With Woodmount Lolita (Lily) taking out the win at the Australian Championships in the CCI** class we continue to think how lucky we are to have such a talented horse as a member of our team! Looking back at her journey with us so far it is amazing to see how she has come along in leaps and bounds and is taking the eventing scene by storm! All of this seems crazy as this event last year marked her first EvA95 competition. Since then she continues to grow in confidence finishing in the top 4 at every event in 2018 [...]
A long post because it has been a long break over summer!! ...but it was so good to be back out there at last eventing on the weekend! We chose to go along to Seville Pony Club & Open Horse Trials to warm up the team for the season, thank you to Seville Pony Club and all of the OC and their volunteers for being so accommodating! Thank you to everyone who helped out and made it a great weekend – sponsors The Saddlery Shop who had a stall there and also sponsor the event, Michele Geoffrey Towb who worked hard [...]
