Homebred Greenhays Popsong stole the show at Keysoe BE90 starting out with a fantastic dressage of 25.5 and following it up with a great jumping performance inside the time to take the win! He also won his previous outing a week before in two competitive British Dressage Elementary Classes with 70% scores. I was very pleased that his great performance was recognised by a well earnt H&H write up! It has been such an honour to breed, back and produce such a talented and kind pony. I will be very sad to see him go off to his new home tomorrow, but I am pleased that he has found someone aiming to utilise his potential.
Ogue Caviar has put in two brilliant runs at Novice placing 3rd (Mount Ballan) and 4th (Keysoe) with Sub 30 dressage tests and double clear on his last outing. He next heads to Pontispool BE Novice, before concentrating on getting some scores on the doors BD aiming for Home International selection!
4 year old Greenhays Midnight Magic (homebred) has started her ridden career as she means to go on. After just 10 weeks under saddle she went to her first show this week and came 2nd in the Cricklands Showjumping! She has already proven her bold and carefull approach to jumping, and has been very straight forward to back. She is now for sale, and looking for a jockey with ambitions of making a British Team!
3 year old homebred Greenhays Rufus has made a serious impression on us after his short time in being backed. Another easy going, classy young horse with paces and athleticism to die for! He has now gone back out to enjoy some luscious grass with his mates Greenhays Eclipse (yearling) and Jonagored (3 year old) my new purchase!
Although Kitty is in the middle of her GCSE exams at the moment, she took some time out to jump her pony Jk in the main ring at Devon County. I was really impressed with the improvement in her riding and she deserved the beautiful clear round she produced for the Dorset Academy Team who together finished a 2nd.
