On November 23 and 24 I ended the competition season at Tooradin Horse Trials, and it was a great way to finish with all of my horses coming home with rosettes! Congratulations to the committee who really changed it up this year with lots of new initiatives, the grounds looked amazing and the courses rode really well! It was also great being close to home and having friends and family visit, thanks to everyone who came and supported. Wimborne Conjuror stepped up for his first 2 star start, producing a nice test and jumping a little green but double clear to [...]
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up the course and has moved into 4th position but it is with many mixed emotions that I announce that Calypso has been withdrawn from the [...]
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.
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 [...]

Thank you to Tonimbuk Horse Trials Inc. for the opportunity to blow the cobwebs out and get the horses doing some freshmans jumping in preparation for the new season. Here is Connor (Wimborne Conjuror) making light work of the 90cm. He has talent to burn but still has some green moments so we will wait for his confidence to grow before tackling the higher levels! Our first event for this year will be in the open classes at Seville Pony Club Horse Trials at the end of February, a great fun local event to warm the horses up before things get [...]
Sam was thrilled to complete his first cross-country round at the Australian International Three Day Event, clear of jump penalties and under time in the CCI2* class with Jaybee Calypso. We're very thankful to have a record of this highlight in the video made by An Eventful Life.
