Berry Show is another pretty venue with good footing. Warren Priestly was the CD again,Warren designed at Dapto, Kiama and Berry so farkeeping busy.
Quinny's best was double clear and 4th in the Grand Prix. These classes are 1.40m and have been good to get to know the horse and learn how to ride him better.
The numbers have been small (9) in the the big classes but making the classes where everyone comes back in the second round, except the eliminated ones. makes for a good jump off.The clear rounders don't like it much but it is a better class.
The numbers werre bigger at Berry but manageable. The South Coast boys, Aaron Hadlow and Toni Priestly always are hard to beat. James Arkins won the Champion Rider of the show.
Nowra Show on the 7/8 February yet another good venue.
Mark Atkins was the CD and he alays does a good job,challenging enough. Every CD has their own style and it is goodQuinny jumped super for 4th on the first day and 4th on the Grand Prix.The numers bigger again . There were 40 in the 1.30m class.
Vicki Roycroft was the GP winner and Nicloe Bruggeman the MIni Prix winner.
Off in the other direction this weekend to Maitland in the Hunter Valley about 20 mins inland from Newcastle. Always a big turn out there. The jumpers wil lbe going from early to late for the three days. We see everybody else come and go and we wll be still there jumping.
