We have had a very exciting year, which started with the purchasde of Boogie Woogie, a prospective new horse for Rio. Sadly we said goodbye to Shiraz Black who has made a wonderful new partnership with a Norwgian junior rider, winning Gold for their team at the Baltic Championships.
The end of the year saw a great win in the Australian Championships for Sancette in the CDI-W Grand Prix Kur – his first competition after a long break.
Many of the team mentioned contributed to his return to competition, so a special thanks to all that helped.
Firstly I would like to thank my manager Shanon Mckimmie, and my working students Zoe, Emma and Brandon, my vet John Vanveenendaal, my farrier Andrew Long, Helen Klaus who regularly massages my horses, and all my clients for their support, especially Emma Youngman, Holly Cutler and Kenlock Park Stud who own the beautiful stallion Kenlock Indian Sky.
We have a new sponsorship agreement withHorseland main office and also locally Horsleand Geelong.
I would also like to thank my long standing sponsors, Manfred Dobrow who supplies my Keiffer saddles,
We finish up the year with the publishing of my book A Long Rein, and a big thanks to Horseland for helping launch the book so successfully.
An extra thank you goes to all the competition organisers who put in so much hard work over the year to stage beautiful events.
I also want to make a special mention to Patrik Kittel and Lyndal Oatley, who have become great supporters and friends and have helped me during my stay in Europe.
Lastly a big thank you goes to my family and friends especially my husband Rob.
