November and December have been quieter months competition wise, but that doesn’t mean that the hard work stops! Vicky and Andrew have been to Young Horse Sales in the UK, Ireland and Holland - bringing home some seriously gorgeous babies for 2019! Amongst the finds are MBF Bite the Bullet, Ava (owned by George and Jane Anderson) and Hadoline with more to come from Holland in the next week… Watch this space for their profiles on the “Our Horses” page.
Vicky has been busy winter training with dressage lessons and jumping days away from home. Practice pays off as Heartbeat and Mister Bond II stormed the BD at Mount Ballan to win their classes and Heartbeat won both the Newcomers and the Fox at Pencoed College at the start of December. Andrew and Anna have been busy breaking in the gorgeous youngsters with all of them making exceptional progress due to Andrew’s tried and testing technique to starting them off.
We said a said goodbye to the gorgeous Ivian, who has gone to a lovely owner based with Kevin and Emma McNab. She is an absolutely gorgeous mare that we are looking forward to following in 2019.
January is all planned out with lots more training and some competitions as well. It will be March before we know it and we will be planning our season! There is training available with Vicky at GHF throughout January including clinics, so please contact us if you would like to arrange to come to get ahead for the 2019 season.
