Holy Bruce Qualified for Adelaide CCI4*

IMG_8130Bruce and Belinda finished in the 3rd place in the Wooroloo CCI3* gaining their qualification for Adelaide International 2015!

They jumped a lovely show jumping round, just touching one down with the tip of his toe.

A little time accumulated on the cross-country knocked them from 1st position, but we are thrilled with Bruce’s performance over the weekend and he has pulled up fighting fit and ready to go again!

If all goes to plan, Belinda is aiming to take Bruce back to Adelaide this year to have another crack at the 4*!

 

HOLY BRUCE excels at Wooroloo CCI3*!!

IMG_7851Foot perfect round today from Holy Bruce in the Wooroloo CCI3*! A very long track with some big, technical fences, but Belinda rode like a true professional! They jumped around clear, with just a little time to add!

They started the competition well, producing a class test on Saturday to lead the dressage by about 5 points heading into cross country.

Showjumping is tomorrow, all the best Belinda!

Diamond B Catapulte – Emma Isbister

Diamond B Catapulte & Emma had a good Sunday at WASJA, jumping a double clear in the 1.15m! An excellent ride from Emma and ‘Possum’ was looking super, check out these lovely photos from Eric Lloyd!

La Nina – Sarah Isbister

La Nina was the up and coming star of the stable jumping two double clear rounds in the 75cm & 90cm, only her second competition ever! She was giving every fence plenty of air, making us question if she should go straight show jumping!

Beezie SOLD to Sweden…

Beezie_Bonheiden CSI** 2015_1.45m LR GP QualA bit of a delayed post for our website followers….PPH wanted to share that in July this year Beezie was sold to Swedish young rider, Evelina Tovek. It was very hard for Sarah to part with this exceptional mare, but we wish her new young rider all the best and we look forward to following their achievements together!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Jamie Kermond, who did an exceptional job establishing Beezie at Grand Prix level this year and to Alison Rowland (Doog) who trained Sarah & Beezie while they were based in Europe in 2013 & 2014.

 

Belinda smooth run at Gidgegannup CIC!

Here to Stay

Here to Stay

Belinda had a pleasing weekend at Gidgegannup CIC riding, Here to Stay in the Pre-Novice, and Holy Bruce in the Two Star.

‘Bruce’ was leading the two star dressage, on what was nearly a sub 40 (if the rider had remembered where to go!) and ‘Jake’ was sitting in 5th in a 35 + field after the dressage phase!

Both horses jumped clear in cross-country and showjumping! However, a deliberately steady ride from Belinda on the cross-country accumulated some time penalties, which put both horses out of the placings, but Belinda was thrilled with her team of two for the weekend!

La Nina first show at Taminga

La Nina had her first show last weekend at Taminga Jump Club!

Nina is by the lovely GP jumping stallion, Yalambi’s Carpino Z (Carinjo), out of Belinda’s 3* evening mare Aspyration (New Zealand thoroughbred). She is a quality mare with a kind temperament, we are really excited about what the future holds for her!

Sarah borrowed the ride on Emma’s, Diamond B Catapulte, jumping two double clear rounds for 1st in the 1.10m & 4th in the 1.05m!

Delemarie Alina also had a great day, placing 2nd in the 1.05m and 5th in the 1.10m!

Yalambi’s Fiorenza – Yalambi’s Carpino Z / Carinjo / Galoubet A

Fun weekend away for Geraldton Combined Equestrian Club three day Showjumping Classic in July!

Yalambi’s Fiorenza had his first start at 1.10m jumping a lovely round!

Delemarie Alina was super competitive in the D-Grade Country Championships Qualifiers placing 3rd on Saturday and Sunday! An AM5 on the Sunday meant the jump-off fences could be raised to 1.20m, giving us a chance to step this lovely mare up a level!
