Murray Bridge Show 2018

GrandView Fox in Sox jumped his socks off at the Annual Murray Bridge Show. We competed in the Official ring and in a class of about 17 riders in the 90cm class Shooter was on fire. He jumped a super clean first round and was fresh and jumping big. The jump off was going to be tight but there was only 5-6 horses with clear rounds. Shooter was feeling very fresh and firing on all cylinders…he did a super quick round to win this class. We also jumped in the 105cm class but pilot error caused us to have one rail down. Was so disappointed...

Naracoorte Horse Trials 2018

Naracoorte Horse Trials. An event I havnt competed at for 6 years (so my FB memories tell me) so we made the trek down there this weekend to do our next 105. Started out with a really consistent and really pleasing dressage test which put us in 7th place in a very competitive field of horses. We show jumped first on Sunday and Shooter was feeling full of running as I think he was expecting cross country so we had one enthusiastic rail which cost a placing. Cross country he jumped out of his skin. The improvement in his jumping was quite...

Lockington Horse Trials 2018

Lockington Horse Trials….what an awesome weekend…the weather gods were super kind to us, turning on a magnificent weekend..! Bit the bullet and took 2 horses this weekend….GrandView Fox in Sox (Shooter) in the EvA105 and GrandView Momentum (Mink) in the EvA65. Dressage put us in mid field for both horses…although it was a closely held scoring. Super proud of the tests both horses did…especially Mink as this was his first competition so had never seen a dressage arena before..! Shooter was sitting 10th after...

Maccelsfield Show 2018

Shooter is picking up on this show jumping gig. Maccy Show on 7th January was a last minute decision to go. Shooter jumped clear in the 90cm and straight into the jump off….he picked up a second against a super fast pony….in a huge class of over 50 horses. The 1m class was another big class of over 30 horses and Shooter did us proud and won the class against some very good horses. Hes getting super quick at the jump off rounds and as usual, dosnt like to touch a rail. In the 1.04m class it was rider error that we pulled a rail on...

The 2017 foaling season well under way….

The 2017 foaling season at GrandView is well under way with some cracking foals with international pedigrees arriving. We seem to have the Willy Wizard on the ground at the stud this year as so far we have 4 colts and only one filly…with seven more foals due in the coming weeks. We are over the moon with the quality of the foals that have arrived so far and have been impressed with the interest received in the foals. If any of the foals tick all of your boxes then dont hesitate to contact Janeth at GrandView on 0420 903...

GrandView Kiss Me Once…better known as Forrest…and owned by Brigette Wood, has started under saddle with Dani Steffanuti. In typical Forrest style he took it all in his stride and was actually very happy to be getting the added attention that being saddled up and ridden required. Very much looking forward to seeing this young horse out and...

Reynella Horse Trials October 2017

Our first horse trials back for the whole of this season due to my injury….so we started in the 80cm. GrandView Fox in Sox put in a reasonable dressage test….considering my nerves…one day I will get past getting nervous riding in circles Im sure. We received some positive comments from the judge which was encouraging…and left us in 11th place. We had a double clear XC and Showjumping, with Shooter telling me that hes well and truly back in form and ready to go up. We finished the event in 6th place. Some solid training...
