APSB NATIONAL STUD HORSE & PONY SHOW (EPIC)

WOW what an amazing weekend!!! Mia had a sensational show to make her mother proud; 3x Supremes and a R/U Supreme! She surpassed our expectations with her work especially in the riddens.

Riley did very well in his Youngstock classes, with broad sashes in all his breed sections, and only beaten by the eventual Supreme Led of Show.

AUSTRALIAN SADDLE PONY COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS (PARKES) 

26/8/12

Despite the cold, wet weather leading up to the show, on the day we had reasonable weather (thank goodness)! Bamborough Golly Gosh competed at his 4th show under saddle for amazing results! He was a gem all day and we are excited about his saddle career! Bamborough Bosonova only had one class but came away with success! He has really matured since the Cootamundra Youngstock Show in June.

Congratulations to Sandra and Alan Henry with their Gordon Part Hot Prospect who won the Marnic Merrymaid Memorial Award. This is the 4th year this award has been running, and this pony was certainly deserving of Mardi's trophy (he also won Supreme Led and Supreme Ridden Exhibit). A big thank you to the ASP committee  (especially Nerida) and Michelle Harpley for taking photos for me (Mum was away at the APSB AGM).

Goodbye Songy...

Sydney Royal was Song's very last show... She is not just a pony to us; during the past four years since Jill and Robbo asked us to show her for them, she has touched our lives in such a dramatic way, we love her with all our hearts. She has had an unbelievable career, beyond our wildest dreams... But it is time for her to have beautiful babies... As devastated as we are that she is retiring, we will never forget our Song; a true show pony with a huge personality that melted our hearts.

Some of her career highlights include:

  • Supreme Part Welsh at NSW/QLD/VIC All Welsh shows (2006, 2007, 2011)
  • Champion Ridden Part Welsh/Champion Led Show Hunter/Champion Ridden Show Hunter at NSW/VIC All Welsh Shows (2010, 2011)
  • WP&CS Achiever Award winner (2011)
  • Supreme Part Welsh/Supreme Australian Pony/Supreme ASP Exhibit/Champion Small Hunter Pony at Canberra Royal (2010, 2011)
  • Supreme ASP Exhibit and winner Ridden ASP/Australian Pony at Sydney Royal (2010, 2011, 2012)
  • Twice Supreme Ridden Australian Pony/Supreme Ridden Part Welsh/RU Supreme Ridden RP Hunter/RU Supreme Led Australian Pony/RU Most Successful Exhibit/winner Working Hunter pony at NPOTY show (2011, 2012)
  • Top 10 Grand National Small Hunter Pony (2010)
  • Champ Small Hunter Pony and Champ Led Pony at SHC NSW HOTY show (2008, 2011)
  • Twice Champ and once RU Small Hunter Pony at Macquarie Bank Hack Champs (2009, 2010, 2011)
  • Champ Small Hunter Pony at AHHA Nationals (2011)
  • Supreme Ridden Exhibit/Supreme Australian Pony Mare at APSB Nationals (2008, 2009)
  • Countless Champs/Supremes at Ag shows in Led and Ridden Open Hunter/ASP/PW/Australian/RP Hunter/WH classes (2008-2012)
  • Song's achievements largely contributed to Brooke winning the 2011 Young Sports Council Senior Sportsperson of the Year

    Song's stand out would have to be Supreme ASP Exhibit at Sydney Royal 2010, as it was the last show that Jill watched Song (or any of her ponies) compete at. It was a very special moment receiving the award with Jill and Robbo watching from the stands with delight. Wearing Jill's pink flower, it has been a great honour to show, take care of and love Song, and with great pleasure we can say she has more than equalled her mother Bamborough Sierra's footsteps. Thank you to everyone for their support over the years, especially Robbo. Can safely say that Song has a huge fan base! Love you little Song........ :'-(((( xxoo

YASS AG SHOW

17/3/12

Despite the conditions at the show (rides, rodeo and a chaff cutter (!) right next to the ring!), we had a successful day. Bamborough Memorize won Champion Show Hunter Pony in the first ring; this was his first Champion in the hunter section! Marbuck Tuqiri also performed well to claim Champion Show Hunter Hack, his last show before a well deserved break over winter. Tuqiri will resume his career in the spring.

We were absolutely thrilled just to get a workout; imagine our excitement when Tuqiri took out Best Novice Hunter Horse!!! He backed it up the next day to work up from 4th to 2nd place in the Open Show Hunter Horse 15.2-16h against some beautiful and well-performed Open horses! Very pleased with how he handled everything; hopefully he will go on to bigger things in the future! Song and Memorize worked beautifully all show for some wins and high places in strong classes against quality ponies. Brooke also presented the Jill Grant Memorial Award for Supreme Champion Part Welsh In-Hand to Ascot Elizabeth Arden (Ascot Stud); a very emotional moment and a deserving winner. (Thanks Amie Harrison for the loan of the lovely hat for the presentation!)

KIAMA AG SHOW 

28/1/12

Every year we go down to Kiama for a holiday but there's a catch... We also take a young horse with us and camp at the showground on the headland! This year we took our 5 yr old pony Bamborough Golly Gosh, and started him at his very first show under saddle! Olly was very good to deal with the woodchop, sheep trials, cattle and showjumping! He won his Novice Pony Hack and also the Led Pony Gelding, not bad for his first show since May 2010. Olly was successful in his Youngstock classes, including:

  • Supreme Part Welsh YS at Vic All Welsh
  • Grand Champion YS of Show at Bathurst YS Show
  • Best Gelding of Show (as a 2 yr old) at APSB Nationals
  • The Marnic Merrymaid Memorial Award for Supreme Pony YS at Morongla YS Show.

We look forward to a bright future with Olly in his saddle career!
