Stuart Tinney: Sep/15
With spring upon us the horses are feeling that 'Spring fever'. Not sure if we are feeling the same way just yet!
This month we took the horses to Sydney Winter Show jumping Championships, which was very successful, bringing home more prize money than entry fees! That will be a first :)
After the Winter Championships CARLCHEN has been selected for the Show jumping 'Talent Identification Series' (TIS) Sadly due to Eventing commitments Carl will not be able to attend the next round at Werribee VIC.

We got mixed results at Equestriad; with Carlchen 6th and War Hawk 9th (3*) and Queen Mary 8th (2*) - Unfortunately Stuart took a tumble on XC from Pluto. Both recovered fine.

Thanks to Tahlia and Emma, ALL horses competing at Equestriad are fed the full range of CopRice Feeds.
Two GREAT events for Gemma: Equestriad & The Winter Show Jump Champs
Gemma is hanging her boots up for a few months to concentrate on HSC. She rode 3 horses at Equestriad and 3 at the Winter Show jumping Champs. Her best ride was on Panamera coming 3rd in the Junior Mini Prix at the Winter Champs. Followed by Prado 7th in the 1* and Thai 3rd Junior 2* at Equestriad.

Another German horse for TE plus Zone ODE
After a very long wait with a 'Glanders' scare in Germany which stopped all imports to Australia for 6 months, we finally have ‘Frenchy’ with us, our new German horse.
Gemma also competed at the zone ODE, however she must have been getting slightly distracted with the attendance of our new Golden Retriever puppy ' HARVEY' so no placing that day! 'Harvey' is fed CopRice puppy.
