And Just Because hes so photogenic.

Henry is a Big Boy Now.

Yes hes a big Boy now.
Photos show his first ride (in the arena) The second two (in the paddock) are the 4th day under saddle. Hes an absolute little star and has done nothing to disgrace himself.

Its been a Long time coming. Jan/Feb Update

Sorry its been such a long time since an update. Things have been rather crazed for the past few months. News is...

Pumpkin came back into work late Jan after his lengthy break due to the fireworks injury. A week after I had started hacking him I was out of work as I tore my achilles tendon. So then I was on crutches for the next 10 days and am still hobbling. Things are not healing as they should and I have to go to a specialist in the next couple of weeks. Riding is not too bad now although I can't use my right leg as well as I should as it hurts.

On the 12th Feb I took a team of 4 kids to compete at the Barastoc Horse of the Year in Victoria to compete against the Aussie Showmanship team. It was a great event and the kids all had a wonderful time.
The Team consisted of Kristie Hill,Brenda Kelly,Mark Weedon and Sophie Sills.
I was very proud of the kids who did a great job. Kristie won the In Hand, Mark won the Dressage, Sophie was third in the Jumping with Brenda and Kristie 3rd = and Mark 4th. The Aussies took out the Team Competition this time.
