January 2017

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!!
