Hard not to love this mare who gives 110% every time she steps in the ring – Lafayette Runner Up in the 7-yr-old at the SRSJC Young Horse Championships! Future is looking bright for this pair.
Wow what a fantastic end to Melbourne 3DE for Here To Stay and Belinda! Jake was fantastic in his first CCI3*. He is relatively green at this level but just said YES to everything on the XC & made it feel easy! He pulled up a million bucks the next day & jumped a lovely SJ round to gain his MER qualification placing 10th overall. There are too many people to mention but a special shoutout to Belinda’s fabulous sponsors Bates Saddles, 4CYTE, Horseland Bunbury, Southern Stars Saddlery!

We are really happy with our jumping team with a great start to the season! SRSJC was a wet weekend but none the less the horses all jumped fantastic, Possum starting back in top form with placings in all her starts and 5th in the Young Rider. Fly and Lucy were also in the money placing in the Bronze Series class.
All horses followed up their great form at Busselton with Fly setting the speedy precedent in the Silver Series to place 3rd and Possum 2nd in the Young Rider. Lucy didn’t touch a pole all weekend placing in the 1.25m and stepping up into the silver on the Sunday double clear!
Next up Horseland Young Showjumping Championship!
Here To Stay is feeling in prime condition leading up to Melbourne Three Day Event 3* competition in June. We are really excited to be taking this stylish horse across to the east coast next week! Jake has been in top form with a 3rd in the Silver Series at Southside Showjumping Championship and a very close 2nd behind 4* horse Misty Isle Valentine ridden by Sonja Johnson in the 3* at Wooroloo CNC! Team PPH wishes Belinda the best of luck in Melbourne.
Fly placed in all his classes at the Yalambi Autumn Classic. Some very tough and technical tracks proved no concern for this talented young horse coming home with a 2nd in the Mini Prix on the sunday. Sarah is excited to see what the rest of the season brings with this partnership!
Jake came out with his best hoof forward to start the season coming 2nd in his second ever 3***! We are really excited for the rest of the year with this lovely horse.
