13th April, 2017 – WINX AND CHAUTAUQUA DOMINATE THE CHAMPIONSHIPS
These 2 wonderful horses were without question ,the stars of the Sydney Autumn carnival. Winx carried on as she has been ..absolutely unbeatable and Chautauqua bounced back to win his 3rd TJ Smith in succession in dramatic style in the last bound.
We are extremely proud that they both started their racing careers at Limitless Lodge and feel privileged to have spent time with these champions in our barns.
21st February, 2017 – GREAT START TO THE EVENTING SEASON
Billy (GV Billy Elliot) and Oaky (Napoleon) both had wins at their first run of the year at the Sydney Eventing Summer Classic. I couldn’t have been happier with their performances in any way. Both led the dressage and felt fantastic jumping. Billy won the 3 star and Oaky won the Advanced Intermediate (known weirdly as the 2.5 star). The ground for this event on the cross country was close to perfect and a major improvement from the November event. Both my horses pulled up very well and I look forward to their next start.
In the meantime, they will head to a jumping show at Sydney this Saturday. They will spend the rest of this week in the paddock with a few light days in the water walker and maybe a little flat on Thursday and a little jump on Friday.
I haven’t galloped them this preparation yet and I was surprised how fit they were after their summer holiday. I think this is a combination of not giving them too long a break, working in the pool and plenty of cross country schooling.
So far so good…
11th February, 2017 – SPONSORS
I have 3 sponsors who are incredibly loyal and generous. They have superior products and I am honoured to represent them. I urge you to support them and look at their product range. Without their products, my team would not function.
10 February, 2017 – PLAN FOR EVENTERS THIS SEASON
As this is a non championship year, I intend to stay in Australia and campaign my 2 top horses – Napoleon and GV Billy Elliot exclusively here. Their first 2 outings for the year have been cancelled with the extreme heat forecast for this weekend. I was to compete at Morriset Show on Friday and at Northside Jumping on Sunday.
Their first eventing start is next weekend at Sydney where they will run in the 3 star. They will then head towards Albury CIC*** and then to Quirindi**. The next outing will then be Camden CIC*** where they will probably just do dressage and showjumping.
The first big target will be Sydney CIC*** in May and the next target will be to get on the Australian team for the Trans Tasman at Werribee CCI*** in June.
They will then have a little let up and I will make a plan to head towards Adelaide CCI****. At this stage, after Melbourne, I will go to England briefly to compete the 2 Irish 6 year olds that I left with Oliver Townend.
I’m looking forward to this year very much as not only do I have the 2 top black horses, but I have a whole bunch of very smart young horses that will be making appearances in the coming weeks. Stay tuned…!...
