Heinrich is a very generous horse. He continues to help Judy refind more of her riding skills and riding confidence and attends some clinics competitions when possible. A delightful horse to have in the paddock and part of the riding team.

 

  

Buena Vista Brenin is a Welsh B gelding born 27/10/07 Welsh B stallion Kingswood Magnet. While Bren's unusual and distinctive sabino colour is a novelty, his bone and substance, paces suited to dressage and 14.2 hands size are his assets. Green broken in 2010-11 both under saddle and to harness he has only had intermittent work. Bren enjoyed being Judy's number 1 pony to ride while the German Riding Pony youngsters grew up.

16.2hh A'Seduction gelding (2006)

A'Raymondo, aka Archie, was purchased in January 2010 as a green 3 year old from his breeder Robyn Walsh of Scone.

Although sold now (to allow Kate to concentrate on her university study) Archie has given both Kate and Judy a lot more experience with riding and managing talented young horses.

Kate and Sandy have competed to much success in the dressage arena at regional, state and national levels. The more notable wins of 2011 include:

  • 2011 Official Medium Champion and Reserve Advanced Champion of Namoi Horse Association
  • Winners of both the Official Medium and Advanced classes at Tamworth Dressage Club's Official Competition (April 2011)
  • 2011 Official Advanced Champion and Reserve Medium Champion of Quirindi & District Equitation Club
Perhaps the biggest achievement of the team of Kate and Sandman has been their transformation in the last 5 years from an inexperienced 13 year old girl riding a green 6 year old to a competent and competitive horse and rider combination training Prix St George.
I feel that Sandy has earnt a permanent place in the performance section of our website because he has had such a significant contribution to Kate's development as a rider and trainer.
