Sorry that our site has not been updated since July but our son, Peter has been working in Los Angeles. He arrived home on Saturday 12th November and left again, for Thailand, on Sunday 13th November!!!!!
He is working overseas and consequently does not have much time at home these days.
"I See Stars" Sale
This Sale finished in May 2005 but we are preparing some horses, ponies and galloways, breaking-in and training them. We will have a new Catalogue early in the New Year , as soon as the horses are ready.
As we have said previously, we are cutting down our numbers, Lindy has two babies now and less time for horses. I did not image how busy those two babies would make my life as they are here every day when Lindy is working with the horses.
Lindy has started showing again this Spring for our clients and pupils. Luke, now two years, stays home with me and Keeley goes to the the shows with Mum (The Milk Bar). sometimes she goes in a car but other times she sits up in her car seat in the "big" truck, bouncing along with her little chubby cheeks keeping rhythm. She loves the outings and has many willing baby-sitters at the shows.
It is a common sight to see 6 horses lines up standing in a row waiting their turn in the ring with Keeley in her pram and pupils and Lindy jumping from horse to horse as each horse is required to compete - always with the support group around to help - Kristie, Ellie and Anna Nichols, Andrea, Garry, Nell and Will Evans, Kath Jones, Ann Scanlon, Jarrod Ashbrook, Nikki Melross and Ashley ????????
Sometimes there are mothers, fathers, grandparents and other relatives there too.
At these Spring shows: Marena Fanfare won 14 Champions, Westwood Seduction won 21 Championships, Marena Sweet Kiss won 6 Champions, Marena Heartbeat (in her first season) won 3 Champions & 4 Reserves in 8 shows, Marena Memories won 8 Champions, Thompson's Destiny 9 Champions and Nell Evans won 5 Champion Girl Riders in 5 shows.
Ellie Nichols - This pocket rocket is really on her way. She is so keen and competitive, she wants to ride everything we have. Ellie did well in leading rein classes but rode solo for her first time at St Ives show in October. She won Champion Beginner Rider on Marena Sweet Kiss. Yes, Sweet Kiss is taking another beginner competitor to success in the Show Ring.
Anna Scanlon's lovely liver chestnut mare, Westwood Seduction (Jordi) has had a marvellous season, winning up to four Champions at a single show. Jordi has been with us now for 18 months and we are very pleased with her progress and performance, she just gets better and better. Anna has decided to put Jordi on the market and start on another young horse. Jordi is a great exhibit to have at shows because of the number of classes that she can enter. She can compete in Galloways, ridden & led, and other registered classes - Welsh, Riding Pony, Australian Saddle Pony, EFA and Show Horse Council. She does well in all these rings.
Jordi will be advertised For Sale next year but anyone interested in Jordi, in the meantime, may contact Lindy or myself by phone or e-mail (see below for contact details).
