Cannot believe it is December already! It has been a fabulous year for our horses, family, and business and we can't believe how fast it has flown by. We are enjoying a bit of a break right now as the majority of our horses are on vacation or just started back hacking so although we are still working seven days a week, they are a bit shorter days.
Leslie has one more trip left this year to Ireland and France horse shopping with clients and for his owner Beatrice Rey-Herme. We sold one of Leslie's young horses (that was owned by Beatrice) to Aaron Vale to go on to a future of big-time show jumping so they are off to replace him and to find a lovely young horse for another girl.
Lesley has enjoyed her first events with her young horse 'Cloudy and Cooley' who is by Verdi out of an extremely well bred tb mare of Sky Boy/Duca de Busted lines. At his first event, 'Ben' was in second after dressage and show jumping but had to have a last min peek at the in of a water jump. Ben wasn't to be shown up however as two weeks later he went to his second event and finished 3rd on his dressage score. He is a very very green young horse however he has all the natural ingredients one would want in an event horse and we look forward to seeing him grow.
Liam is very excited about Christmas this year and we were fortunate to attend the circus last night where Santa was accompanied by an elephant! So Liam and his friend Caiden Holling got to have their photos taken with both of them.
We hope all our friends and fellow Eventers have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for the New Year!
