June News

The month of May flew by, with the Sydney World Cup at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre the first weekend. It was great to have Vettori out after his well deserved break after WEG. What a horse! He went to the WC as if it was a walk in the park! Coming in with a 4th ribbon, just behind Shane Rose and Chris Burton. Vettori (Kiwi) is just going so well and very established we could not have been more pleased with him on his first run back. Watermark Grayson unfortunately got a foot abscess 2 days before his run! Good timing Frank!!


Vettori, owned by Kathy Ward and Pete O’Connell 4th in the CIC*** WC at SIEC. It was good to have him back competing! Adelaide will be Vettori’s aim this year.

Some exciting news is that we have a new addition to our yard of ‘top guns!’ Alongside Vettori, Panamera, Watermark Grayson we have gained the ride on John and Jane Pittard’s ‘Pluto Mio’. Yet another grey horse! Stuart is very excited about the prospect of campaigning Pluto for his owners. We will keep you posted on our progress and we thank John and Jane for the opportunity.

Some more important news is my new role as Advertising Manager for Equestrian Life. www.equestrianlife.com.au Very excited to be involved with such a great comeback mag.

Equestriad at Camden had weather to die for and what a fun great event, well done to all those who ran the event. We took 4 horses to do the CIC***, a little busy for Stuart as well as Kinnordy Genuine in the CIC**(came 7th). More importantly Jaymee was doing her first one star! The best result was Jaymee! 5th in the open CIC* (1st Junior) and boy did she get great prizes from the event sponsors! She is now hooked on this event! Sarah Ingham’s Watermark Grayson came 7th, Panamera after her 2nd in the dressage had a canter around the XC coming in 11th. Kinnordy Rubino who has won his last 3 starts, 12th in his first 3 star and Orchard Hill 14th. We were very pleased with them all, in a class of 35 starters.
