Back to normal at Tinney Eventing

      Stuart and Leporis at Canberra


With WEG now behind us we can now concentrate on our own team of horses back here in Australia. It has not been too bad with Stuart being away for parts of this year as it gave the young horses some time to mature and grow in their training.

With Stuart only getting back into the country three days prior to Canberra CIC, the pressure was on us riders here at home to see if we had done a good enough job! Thank fully all the ponies went well, so we keep our jobs …..

Canberra was somewhat hectic with nine horses in all from the TE barn; six rides for Stuart, two rides for Gemma and one ride for Tara Rogers our rider. As much as we all love eventing, this was a stretch for us all! Thank you to Kerry (owner of Sir Pepper) for your help plus evening entertainment! Plus, Gemma's girls Fin and Tish- you are now icing experts :)

Here’s a snap shot of which horses Stuart competed and how they went.

In the CIC2.5* our own War Hawk did a fabulous event with some time XC to place 4th.

Our own Leopris stepped up and looked awesome in the CIC** again, with just time on XC placing 6th.

The two girls, Daisy and DD, were solid in the 1 Star with 5th and 8th placings. Elisabeth Brinton's Celebration only did the dressage and show jumping at this event (a little too pudgy for XC but he will start again at Goulburn) while Alice Wheller's Sir Pepper is looking better every event with a 10th in the CIC*.

The lack of winter events for us here at TE certainly slotted in with Stuart’s commitments at WEG plus a trip to the UK for a family wedding and some some non-horsey activities on the Cornish coast for Karen and Irene (mum)

Canberra was a great run for Gemma's horses too, with Tim Games Diabolo moving into the CIC** and the Pittard’s Annapurna having a run to the water, with Adelaide in their sights.

Events coming up for TE are Goulburn NSW State Championships, Albury CIC followed by The Australian International 3DE (Adelaide) then closer to home at Wallaby Hill 3DE.
