20 Jul Sophie Warren – Mid Year Update
With a few new additions to the team, we have spent the beginning of the 2017 season building partnerships and training the youngsters. Eminence has started the season off well with two CNC*** starts and a CNC** where he has achieved improvements in his dressage phase at every start. We are excited to see him consolidate at CNC/CIC*** level during the second half of the season.
Our 4 year old, Phteven, has had his first two starts and coped well with the atmosphere and pressures of competition life and when he nears 5 years old we will begin to step him up the levels in the hope that he will be a horse to watch for the future!
The newest addition to our team, Codebreaker, has required some additional training to help him cope with the transition to a life eventing and as such we will take our time to help him settle in and reach a place where he can show off his talent! One of our horse training philosophies is ‘training takes the time that it takes’ so with patience and consistent training we are confident that he will become a great addition to the team.

Our foundation training (breaking in) and re-training business continues to bring in horses from some of WA’s best breeding establishments and highest level riders. It is an honour and a privilege to be acknowledged in this way for our training expertise, professionalism and proven results. All horses that come for training return home with a long-term plan going forward including diet, veterinary management where required and gear recommendations allowing us to encourage our clients to also support our sponsors.
Our clinics have been popular in bringing new clients to our business and we have had a busy schedule presenting to the PCAWA State Coaching School in February, running the Murdoch University Animal Science Equine Behaviour unit and hosting Lucinda Green MBE for a clinic. The Sustainable Equitation Adult Riding Club launched this year for social adult riders who want to learn about Equitation Science in a friendly environment and progress the training of themselves and their horses. We have over 25 club members and so far the rallies have been a huge success so we plan to expand on this in 2018.
