Well it has been a very busy time at Winmallee. We have had a lot of new students starting with us in the last few weeks, so this has been keeping me busy teaching.
Our new colt "Bon Braxton" will be starting his new journey to Australia from Germany. He will be picked up from Germany on the 5th August to start his quarantine in the UK on the 7th August. He will be in quarantine until the 29th August and will fly to Australia and do quarantine here till the 21st September. IRT have let me know that quarantine laws will be changing and now only needing 2 weeks quarantine and this is meant to be starting in September this year. So our Bon Braxton may be leaving quarantine on September 14th. This would be amazing as he would be at Winmallee on the 16th September which happens to be by birthday. Only problem is I will be doing the below school, well we will just have to fit it all in.
Menola Mendez is holding a clinic on the 14th, 15th, 16th and I will be taking Winmallee Mojo. We will be starting Piaffe and Passage with him, which will be exciting as this wonderful horse has only been 1 year OTT. Mojo has been such an amazing horse to train and has such a great trainable personality it has made life so easy for me. He has gone from racing to medium level dressage in 1 year. This is a horse that just try's so hard to please.
Then on the 24th we are expecting a lovely De Niro foal from Winmallee Emerald. Plenty going on to keep us extremely busy. Then we will be putting her back in foal to De Niro again and Winmallee Royal Reine will be going in foal for the first time to Ampere. She is by Royal Hit who sadly put down last week with a broken leg.
Show season has started again and our first show with Winmallee Mojo will be on this weekend. Shows will be nearly every weekend now.
