We are very happy to welcome Tanya to Connegar Farm this week, who will be working in the stable and helping with the horses – and what better way than to introduce her to riding tolt!
This week, Draupnir has retired. He will be 21 next year and while he is still fighting fit and healthy, he has been an amazing horse for Jemimah – getting her first ‘7’ in T2, and staying successful in the UK since. He will be very missed as a riding horse but has moved into a field with some of our other older geldings to be deservedly happy as a horse.
Wow, what a week for Team GB and for us! One Gold, One Bronze and 3 other rosette placings – two of which was Mike and Kafteinn! Not only did he ride an amazing Five Gait test, ending in 11th place, he then got the chance to ride in the B final where he ended in 9th place bringing home a pink rosette for Team Connegar and Team GB. Furthermore, after completing the Five Gait, Tolt T1, Pace Test and Speed Pace, he also managed to get into 9th spot in the combination prize and another rosette! Jemimah rode Noi in the T1, ending in the middle of a very tough field. Here are some pictures from the week.
