Stevenson Family Show Stables is family run by Brooke, Christinne and Alex Stevenson. Located at Young in the South-West slopes of New South Wales, we show ponies, galloways, hacks and show hunters at local, regional, state and national level. With over 40 years experience, the results speak for themselves.

A beautiful sunny day; perfect weather! Thanks to Bec Medhurst for a great little show. We had a lovely social day catching up with friends, oh and a bit of showing of course! Bamborough Bosonova was 1st/Reserve Champion Open Show Horse (all breeds, to mature as an Open Show Horse), from a big line up under judge Jodi Allen (Vic). He also picked up a few other wins and placings in the other rings. The best part about the day was the way Riley behaved and how he trotted up lovely; his last Youngstock show.

Brooke presented the "Stevenson Family Show Stables" award to the Supreme Welsh Youngstock to Brampton Cassanova (owned and shown by Alice Clark); Congratulations! (pictured below right with judge Jacqui Knobel)

SYDNEY ROYAL EASTER SHOW 

1/4/13

Mum judged the Australian Saddle Pony classes on Easter Sunday, and it was a nice change to be spectating. But it didn't last long as the next day I rode Rockfire Cardi for Heidi Stevens in the Ridden Welsh Cob class! He went very well, couldn't be happier with his work. He ended up 4th (out of a strong class) and wasn't quite the judges type. Was lovely to get to have a ride!

NATIONAL PONY OF THE YEAR SHOW (SIEC)

15-17/3/13

Our small team of two ponies had a wonderful weekend at NPOTY, run smoothly by the committee who did a fantastic job on running this event. Thanks to them, organisers, officials, stewards, judges, etc. A huge thank you to the generous sponsors of this show, without it there wouldn't be one! In particular The Rug Rack, Southwood Saddlery and Kerry Patchett/Bev Hall for their stunning garlands! Another big thank you to the hard working photographers Lorelle Mercer and Suz Worsley-Deacon for 'clicking away' in various conditions over the weekend, all day every day to get the perfect shot of our ponies! A personal thank you to Nicole Rivett (for leading Taylor in the ASP), Mick Rath (for leading Taylor in the In-Hand Final) and Wendy Savill (for her awesome support and her SUPER GOOD LUCK clear hoof polish!); and of course our friendly neighbours who added to a fun weekend! LAST BUT NOT LEAST my amazing MUM, CHRISTINNE, who has put in all the hard work into these ponies and made them what they are today... The dedication has paid off and the credit must go to her! (Thanks DAD for driving us safely to the show and home again, and Tye for being our mascot!) A big congrats to all who did well...

KIAMA AG SHOW 

25-26/1/13

Our first show for 2013! We took Taylor for our annual trek to Kiama, where we spend a week camping at the showgrounds (camping on the headland right next to the beach!). We always take a green pony to give them some education, and then the Kiama show is at the end of the week. Taylor handled the situation very well, improving every day and taking everything in his stride. Even on the show days he didn't blink at the showjumping/rides/cattle show/wood chopping/tractors dumping wood into trucks!
