This quirky yet talented chestnut gelding took out the Senior Horse Hunter in Hand, western pleasure and Horsemanship, but the biggest and most impressive wins of the day for his connections were by far the Lance Memorial Trail Feature and the Open Western Pleasure Feature. To top off the day, he showed a great display of versatility by competing in the Western riding showing off some beautiful changes. We are excited to see this partnership flourish.

She showed great versatility winning the 2yr old Hunter in Hand, Lungeline, led Trail and led Hack. This filly had minimal work leading up and was still a powerhouse for Ashley Giampaoli.

This lightly shown mare by THESE IRONS ARE HOT, is hypnotising to watch and it seems judge Kate Elliot agreed, with a win in both the Amateur and 2yr old and over Hunter in Hand, The open Walk Trot, Amateur and Junior Horse Hunter Under Saddle. But the biggest Win of the day for this Hunter Specialist was winning the Open Hunter Under Saddle Futurity.  We are hoping to see this combo compete interstate in the coming month.
