We knew we had a great team around us but competing in Adelaide at the CCI 4* showed us just how much support, love and positive energy we have, both at home and in Adelaide. Which makes for much more fun when you can enjoy the journey and success together!!!
Depths of winter = an autumn wrap up & THANKS to our DSE Team
Well we are starting to become much more acclimatised to winter now. Chanel (my website manager & designer) has been asking me to write a blog for a good couple of months now. It’s a cold, muddy and rainy day outside so I thought it was a perfect time to write this one in wrapped up in front of the heater! 😉

End of the Year!!!
So far this season I have had two stars in my team… DSE Sunset Pass (aka Gary/Gazza) winning the Beyond the Barriers Overall title for 2016. In the process he scaled and cleared 1.50m, which is no mean feat for a lot of horses, let alone one less than a year off the track!!! Needless to say I was very proud of his performance and what an awesome way to showcase the versatility of the NZ thoroughbred – go Gina and Nicky!
Beginning of the Spring Season!
DSE Tangolooma (Bones) made it back to an event YAHHHHHHHH 😉
Kelley Barrington, our amazing vet who has spent 20 months, scanning/flexing/stressing and probably has many more years ahead of this, I can’t thank her enough. Bones has also had Platinum Performance in his diet every day, and I’m sure that has helped with the healing process!
Well overdue BLOG!!!
Where to start…
I headed to Taupo 3DE with a lot of high hopes, my team of horses were in fantastic condition although unbeknown to me I would come home really sick, very frustrated and wishing I didn’t have to wait another 3 months for another competition. It took me a week to physically crawl out of my annoyingly flu filled bed! I had unfortunately caught some kind of bug that didn’t enjoy the amount of energy us crazy event riders put ourselves through – crap timing!
2015 Wrap up
Not sure how to start this end of year blog, other than a year ago I was sitting here, coming to the realisation that Bones needed a years unplanned vacation, and Elise & Dani’s palomino had somehow scaled 1.60 with me and I had a team of exciting young horses… A year on, Bones is walking, Elise & Dani’s palomino is the spearhead of my team and somehow Gucci scaled 1.70 with me on, and I have another team of exciting young horses!
Where has the year gone???
So it’s been a while since my last blog! We have had quite a bit happen over the last two months…
August has flown by!!!
August has flown by!!! The plus side to this is spring is getting closer! Yay, longer days and warmer weather 😉
I’ve spent most of August all over the countryside. I’ve just arrived home from Invercargill, it’s always cool (literally) to go down there and see everyone and catch up on how they have progressed, so be it a little chilly and wet for me!
Middle of Winter
Winter is here!
Winter is definitely here now, at least with these freezing cold mornings the days are stunning in between and we can be productive with the babies! 🙂
