We began February competing at the Strathbogie Summer Show. Unfortunately the weather gods were not kind to them with temperatures over 40 degrees on Saturday but all efforts were made which lead to some very fast, competitive classes on Sunday. We were very happy with Aliyah placing 3rd in the 1.35m and jumping double clean in her second Grand Prix finishing 4th. Also Kavita was 4th in the 1.25m and the under 50 points Championship. Kanandale Mr K and DP Secret Faith also stepped up to their first 1.15m and jumped really well. We were also very happy for our wonderful groom Shannon Kelly who placed 4th in the 90cm on Louie
We also competed at the NVSJC Summer Show in February. As always the grounds were fantastic along with wonderful tracks built by David Sheppard. The young horses jumped well with Kanandale Mr K having an unlucky last fence down in the jump off of the 1.10m. CP Annibell won the 1.35m and CP Aliyah was 4th in each 1.35m and Fontaine Blue VDL won the 1.20m
On our weekend off in between shows we also installed our fully automated watering system for the arena. It is lovely to now have a wonderful watered surface and no more dust!!
The final weekend saw us run a clinic at home with David Dobson. We bring David over from WA a few times a year and it is always a great training weekend. We run five groups of 3 over two days and everyone gets’ a lot out of it.
