Finally getting a chance to sit down in front of the keyboard and reflect on what has been a busy year. Although I have not been out competing for the last couple of months, there's certainly been a lot happening on the horsey front.
Firstly, some introductions. There have been some recent additions to the herd. Meet Ellie and Zena. These two lovely ladies form part of our little team of school ponies.
Zena is a 7yo New Forest mare. She is currently early into her education and wearing "L" plates, but is a lovely quiet little mare. She will be a lesson pony once she is educated.

Ellie is at the other end of the experience scale and is a 23yo Riding Pony mare. She's been there and done that and will be a valuable addition to our team! Ellie is looking forward to teaching children the ropes of riding and horse care. Ellie no doubt will be popular this summer for children's lessons!

Although I have not been out competing recently, Snip has! He and Harriet are going great guns. They placed second in the grade two at Kyneton Pony Club Horse Trials and then won at the Maryborough short course interschool competition! I'm so pleased to see Snippy out doing well and being totally spoilt! They also recently went to a Clayton Fredericks clinic when he was recently in Melbourne. :)

So now it's time to start planning for another busy year...and time to get my Christmas shopping done!
Enjoy the festive season...til next time!
