Every year we feel very blessed to have one of Australia’s most stunning venues located in WA. The Yalambi team continually puts on a world class show for us!
Juggling a stunning wedding in between a weekend of jumping, Diamond B Catapulte finished her career off with a fabulous round in the silver series, this wonderful mare will now enjoy retirement and we aim to put her in foal this spring!
Both Lafayette MVNZ and Here To Stay made the long trip across the Nullarbor to finish off the year with a bang! Lucy and Emma had huge success against some stiff competition given they are such a new and green combination. They placed 5th in the Australian young rider championship qualifier and after making it into the 1.45m final were 14th overall! They then continued on to Adelaide for the Jumping with the Stars classes to place 2nd and 5th.
Belinda and Jake also had a superb weekend with Jake putting his best foot forward to bring home a 4th in the CIC 3*** at Adelaide International 3DE and won highest placed off the track for the second year in a row!
Sarah had a wonderful finish to the season on board the scopey Fiorenza (aka Fly) who stepped up to Grand Prix level this year. Fly placed 4th in the prestigious Patrons Cup and also 4th in the Senior State Title. This is looking to be a promising combination for 2019!
Equestrian is a sport of ultimate highs and lows. Yalambi spring classic was a wonderful high class competition set in between beautiful scenery on wonderful area. Lafayette MVNZ continues to amaze us with a place on the first day, two perfect clear rounds and a 5th in the qualifier for the Gaenor Mcinnes Memorial and unfortunately just out of the placings in the final but we are beyond proud of this mare. Diamond B Catapulte was on form with an unlucky rail popping her out of the running for a place in the Gaenor. ESB Irish Tribute stepped into the main ring like an old pro and jumped so well over the 3 days and our new member of the team Oaks Diabella had clear rounds all weekend and a 6th on the saturday.
Phew what a busy few days it was! Now onto Patrons Cup weekend!
The Perth Royal is always a big show and this year we were fortunate enough to ride some fantastic tracks built by Michael Haese. Emma had a fabulous ride on Lucy both days to pick up a 3rd in the Pt 3 Mini Prix and 4th in the Young Rider Mini Prix. What a fabulous horse she is!
