Judy Dierks: Jun/12

News from Judy Dierks - June 2012

IMG_4470_webSydney CDI has come and gone! And it was a very busy, exciting and successful week. We headed out with Feramo K, owned by Andrew and Carol Oatley, and Diamond Star, owned by Vicki Newham, on Tuesday. Diamond Star competed on Thursday in Round 1 of the 6yo class and scored 8.5 for second place, and then scored an 8.36 in round 2 for first place. Saturday was our biggest day with Diamond star competing for 6yo champion and Feramo competing in the Intermediate II. I was thrilled that, by the end of the day, Feramo was the Inter II champion with 64% and Diamond Star was sashed 6yo champion! It was definitely a very big adventure to CDI and we had some great times. Thankyou to my great grooms, owners and the two horses who really stepped up for this big competition.

Mid-April saw a very successful outing at the Clarendon (Dressage NSW) competition with three horses. Feramo K won the Intermediate II with over 65%. Diamond Star danced his way to 1st place in the Medium 4C with a fantastic 74%, and 3rd place in the Medium 4B with 70%. Our new competition prospect, Highlight, a stallion owned by Jenalle Duffy, turned many heads as he won the Novice 2D and came 2nd in the Novice 2B with scores over 72%. The competition was a great success with all three horses working and performing fantastically.

May has seen the cold weather kick in here. We have starting rugging the horses (and ourselves!) up. But we haven’t slowed down! Clarendon is fast approaching for Highlight (Novice) and Diamond Star (Medium). It is not long then until myself, Clemens and Daniella alI fly to Germany for the World Equestrian Festival in Aachen in late June/early July. We will also be going to the PSI Auction, which is always exciting with such great quality horses. But then it is back to work at home!

 

Until next time ..

Judy
