GrandView Momentum (Mink) goes to his new home

Rather a double edged sword that Mink has gone to his new home. He is such a fun horse to have around…and it now leaves me without a horse to go eventing..! On the up side….the lovely young rider Suzanna Koch has bought herself a really lovely horse. I knew from the moment she jumped on him in our arena that she was going to do well with this horse….she time and time again had Mink gee’d up to produce his big trot..! Very much looking forward to seeing Suzanna out and about on...

Jamie Coman….Clinic 2….and 2 horses

September clinic and Tara and I headed back over to Jamies for another week clinic. This time we both did a convoy and took 2 horses each. Both Mink and Shooter jumped very well. Shooter obviously was the superstar but Mink also proved that he has a pretty good jump in him as...

Boot camp with Yona Lloyd

Tara and I headed to Victoria yet again…..this time it was for Werribee Horse Trials….but we stopped off at Yona Lloyd’s place on the way to do some tune up boot camp with the horses. It blew an absolute gale for all but one day of the while time we were there…but thankfully no rain like our previous visit to Ballarat. Yona had us tuned up and humming along in no time flat….it was a lot of hard work but one heck of a lot of fun. Highly recommend Yona for coaching in any of the eventing...

The beginning of our coaching journey with Jamie Coman

Tara and I on the road again to Victoria….and yes it has been commented that maybe we have moved there…but no, we just keep going back…this time to Seymour where we spent the week training with Jamie Coman. What an inspiration this man is…! Tara and I had one heck of a week with Jamie….learnt a lot….and have lots to work on. Made me realise what a fabulous horse that I really do have….I kind of already knew that anyway. Shooter absolutely jumped his socks off and produced some just incredible work....

Drenched in the downpour at Ballarat Horse Trials

Another trip east for Tara Fuller and myself with the golden kids. It started raining just as we left on Thursday….and did not stop until late Friday night….guess which day I had to ride…Yep…Friday…! We saddled Mink on the float…..got soaked warming up and rode in the torrential rain…as you can see from the photos…and put Mink straight back on the float afterwards. To his credit he did a beautiful test and was VERY happy to be on the float in the dry with his hay bag. Just went and got our...

GrandView Fox In Sox wins Wistow Winter Series

Shooter won the 2019 Wistow Winter Series High Point contest. He didnt make it easy for me though. There was Shooter and another horse that was neck and neck through the whole series. On the first competition on the last week of the series the organisers hung the trophy rugs on the fence and Shooter just didnt think this was right at all…was not going to go anywhere near them….so we had a stop in that round which only earnt me one point for that round. Thankfully we hung on by the skin of our teeth….one point only…to...

Australian Eventing Championships (Wandin Park) 2019

When my friend Tara Fuller said….why dont you come with me to Wandin….I thought why not..! Reality set in shortly after agreeing as Mink had only plonked (and I actually mean that quite literally) around a couple of local EvA65s….so I was thinking…this could end in tears…! 760 entries was the biggest number horses Mink had ever seen..! Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained…! So off we went with the golden horses on board….and headed for where we were staying with Julie Townsend (who also owns a...

Murray Bridge Show 2018

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...
