Took to her free jumping beautifully showing very nice form at a vertical and nice balanced approch and landings
Ard Intimate and Sarah Barah will be returning from Elandale Farm NC next month:) We have missed them. They are both bred to Prince Optimus check out www.elandalefarm.com
They are due this summer and we are very excited to see their foals although very nervous also!!! Ard Intimate is my retired Intermediate 1* horse and has excellent irish blood lines with Clover Hill and King of Diamonds in there and her Dad Ard Black Cat is a grand prix show jumper as well as her Grandpa Ard Alley Cat.
Sarah Barah is a crafty prospector line tb and is one of the best galloping horses I have seen so we should get some athletic babies if everything goes to plan...... fingers crossed.
I (Sue Robshaw) am now back to full riding and training after snapping my right femur in half back in May 2011. After 2 surgeries and 4 months on crutches it is back to full riding capacity. The good news is that it is even stronger than before due to having a titanium rod from knee to thigh:) A huge thankyou to everyone who helped us out during this time.
All of our horses are now in training and progressing beautifully.
Cullintra Delight my prelim horse is doing fitness work hoping to start the season off at prelim and move up to intermediate asap.
Pictou has already been out and shown in the Jumpers and had 3 double clears at the 3' and 3'3" height taking a 3rd, 2nd, and 1st as I tested out my leg in competition and improved the jump off rounds.
Palmetto Princess our 5yr old is in the middle of her ground work and I should be getting on her this week. She is showing a nice way of going and should suit the hunter/jumper ring or be a nice eventer.... more news on that as she progresses.
Penobscot aka Peanut is now under saddle and jumping. Picture below is of her recent free jumping session 4' 7" vertical. She is "freaky carefull" of the poles but also has that rare quality of being bold not a combination usually found together. Exciting news is that the Maddens ( John and Beezie) may be going to evaluate her for their programme when they return from Florida this Spring.
