Last weekend, Jemimah was very fortunate to ride two of her sales/training horses at the Oakfield Autumn show. Assa performed well in the V7 and T5, qualifying in first place and Kjarkur also qualified in first place in the V1 and T1 (with 6.5). Jemimah would like to thank the owners of these two lovely horses for the chance to compete them!
We have returned from the Dutch Championships where we were fortunate to have some successes! Mike and Kafteinn won the PP1 Pace Test, and were 5th in the Speed Pace. Jemimah and Kolbeinn managed to score a Personal Best in the T1. It was a friendly and well organised competition. Furthermore, we had a HUGE surprise visit from Magnus and Petronella to support!!
We’ve been busy over the last few weeks with a demo, training horses, courses, lessons, shoeing and riding our own too so here are some recent photos to enjoy…
This week we welcome Lara Balz from Switzerland to Connegar Farm! Lara will be with us for a couple of months and we are looking forward to working with her!
Last weekend we travelled to Scotland to compete at the British Championships which was also a world ranking competition. Mike and Kafteinn won the pace test and Five gait, and Hafeti won the speedpace. Jemimah was also very happy with her two, Fjolnir and Kolbeinn who won the T2, V1 and T1 between them. Both young horses achieved personal best scores over the weekend, but a particular highlight for Jemimah was a score of 7.11 with Kolbeinn in the T1 final! We thank the organisers for a successful and fun show, despite the weather!
This week 3 horses left Connegar to go to various destinations! We have enjoyed having them all here and maybe will see them again soon!
We have had a busy few weeks, including a week away at Exloo Internationaal, Holland. Mike and Kafteinn achieved second in the speed pace, and Hafeti won the 150m pace race! Jemimah and Fjolnir won their four gait class and came 2nd in their debut in T4! Kolbeinn also achieved 3rd places in his first international V1 and T1! We were very pleased with the horses! Here are some photos from the competition.
A couple of weeks ago we took Kaspar, Fjolnir and Kolbeinn to Oakfield Spring Show. It was Kaspar’s first time away and he took it all extremely well! He achieved marks up to 5 for all gaits, so we were very pleased with him. Fjolnir debuted in T2 and did a great job, while Kolbeinn performed well in V1 and T1!
Last weekend we had fun with the second SRDP group, here are some photos from the weekend:
