So, we made it to december! Lots happening in ireland, the younsters are starting to up their workload and our top horses have gone to Florida with Keith & Leanne. Heres a few photos from our everyday shenanigans on board the Balloo horses!
Anastasia Romanova & Draconis headed out for their morning workout and took the scenic route! We are lucky to have access to some amazing gallops and we make the most of it this time of year to keep everyone fit.
Balloo's Big cash Boogey is under saddle and loving it! Hes a really fresh dude who has a good attitude but needs the energy worked out of him. He makes everybody look like a pea on a mountain!
Mayhem Managed is slowly becoming one of our most successful youngsters. He didn't take grand champion this time around but he got a first in his free jumping class. Hes a real world class type who we are pinning many hopes on for the future. The sale offers have been flooding in but theres no chance he is going anywhere yet. He is starting under saddle this christmas and is a little difficult with his big personality and opinions but we will get there.
Daybreak REC is a lovely little mare who is has just been broken. She was an unproven buy so we shall see how she ends up. @breannakristine
Airdino Z is a lovely little stallion who will be starting his show career in 2018. We had some set back due to field injury but he has come back sound and we will be monitoring him closely as he progresses.
Caitlin has been stuck with the task of teaching the exercise riders while Kei is away . @jenniferkim
Bambolaeio aka dumbo is such a DUDE. Hes going hunting this season and is just such a fabulous all rounder. It will be tough to part with this guy when the time comes.
R.M. Nimbus is our team mascot, the finnhorse, because he is trying his little heart out to be as good as the other big jumpers. He doesn't look impressive but hes very fast and bouncy, the riders love having a play on him! @luna
Syncopation REC is our drifter son that is slowly starting to live up to his bloodlines. His dad is a very famous old school showjumper and we are hoping to start his show career in 2018. @breannakristine
Honey likes to use the riding as an excuse to come and dig up the arena!
Kizzy & magic, our two lovely mares, having an hour in the paddock. Theyre very good friends. Magic is owned by Georgia and will be eventing in 2018! @annieyaga
Last but not least, Donut is a 2 year old colt who we just bought from a dealer. We were directed to him by a close friend due to having some good bloodlines and here he is, arrived and just trotted off the lorry! Hes a bit cheeky and unhandled but i hope to share his journey with you.
