After a short break for Christmas we were back into a run of shows in January. We began at the Gippsland Festival with Cavalli Park Aliyah winning the 1.35m and 5th in the 1.40m. We then moved to Boneo Park the following weekend for the Boneo Classic. This was a beautiful show with fantastic arenas and courses and top interstate competition. Unfortunately Paul was injured on the first day which meant he had to have a few weeks off riding but we were very grateful to Olympian Matt Williams who was having a short break in Australia to re new his VISA for stepping in and riding Aliyah and Kavita for us, he did a fantastic job finishing with just 4 faults in the Mini Prix. Matt also rode Aliyah the following weekend at Lang Lang for a 5th in the 1.30m and 4th in the 1.35m. PPSJC have done a fantastic job improving their grounds and it is now one of the best in Victoria. Michelle also placed 2nd in the 1.30m on El Nino Vivace and 5th with Kavita int eh 1.20m Young Horse Championship.
Early January we also had a lovely Animate x Quest for fame colt born. He is very cute and a bit cheeky!!
