NEWSLETTER Ė SPRING, 2005

Well spring has sprung and soon we will have lovely new foals on the ground.  How we love to watch the foals and their antics.  Our first Marena foal, by Royal Show Champion Shifting, is due around 22nd of October.

The shows started at St Ives on the 28th August.  There are several shows that we will be doing over the next couple of months.  If you would like to know some of the dates just ask Lindy for them.  Maybe you would like to come and watch some of your friends compete.  I am sure they would love your support.

Show Success  The team of horses and riders have had a great time at the first 2 Spring Shows.

Ellie Nicholls has competed in leading rein classes before at shows, St Ives was her first time solo and what a day she had.  Ellie won Champ beginner Rider on Marena Sweet Kiss.  Sweetie also went on to win her Show Hunter class. 

Wesswood Seduction (or Jordi to her friends) won Champion small Galloway Hack at St Ives and Champion Led ASP,  Champion Led,  ANSA and 1st in the Galloway Hack at Frenchs Forest.

Marena Heartbeat won 1st and Reserve Champion small pony.

Marena Fanfare won Reserve Champion Galloway Show Hunter AT St Ives and . Champion Show Hunter Galloway at Frenchs Forest.

Jared Ashbrooke riding his horse Marena Outback (Dusty) won their Novice Show Hunter and placed 3rd in his rider with Nikki Melross 2nd in the same class riding Fanfare. 

Nellie Evans won Champion Hack with her lovely mare Marena Memories at St Ives and her Show Hunter class with Thompsons Destiny (Min).  So all up the Marena team had great days with all the horses winning performances for Sydney Royal 2006 qualifications.  Well done team.

Our trip to Switzerland to Franís Wedding was fantastic.  It was a real Swiss country Wedding.  Fran and new husband, Lucas, walked down the road to meet us at the railway station and we all climbed aboard three mini buses and went off up the mountain.  We stopped at a very old cheese factory where we had appetifs, drinks and two year old cheese made in the factory the old way.  The wedding photos were taken with every one in summer clothes and in the back ground the snow covered mountains and a glacier.

We are very happy with the progress of all our pupils, but donít forget there is a lot to learn and we enjoy teaching you so that you may ride safely and well with knowledge.  As you progress you may come here for half a day on Saturdays to learn all about the care and the correct handling of horses and have a lesson as well for $55.00.  During the School holidays pupils may come for the Day. 

Hope you all have a good holiday coming up
