AJA ESTAREYNA 2nd Novice Mares

AJA ESTAREYNA 2nd Novice Mares

The North Staffs spring show proved to be an eventful affair, starting with the blow out on one of the back tyres of the wagon, just prior to arriving at Rodbaston College. Fortunately this did not affect the driveability of the wagon and we were able to get to the venue unaffected, allowing us to unload the horses, who were totally unaware that anything out of (more…)

He’s Back

Thursday, April 21st, 2011


We are pleased to announce that AL SHAHRANI, affectionately known as Arnie, a multi champion ridden gelding will be returning to the show ring in 2011 produced and ridden by Tina.

AL SHAHRANI had an exemplary novice season in 2005 with many wins and championships including 2nd Novice Gelding at the British National Championships, culminating in taking the Reserve Reserve Championship at the British Arabian Championships. No mean feat for a novice gelding. He subsequently stepped up into the open classes, taking a 3rd place at HOYS, in his first open season. In his final season he took several ridden championships including the British Arabian Championships and pulled a credible 2nd place at Horse of the Year Show.

His first appearance this season will be at the North Staffs Spring Show on the 24th April where he will be appearing with AJA ESTAREYNA who is continuing her education before her first full novice season. Hope to see you there.

Back in the Saddle

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

The new venue for the Northern Group Spring show at Bishop Burton was very impressive with excellent facilities and being reasonably local to us, it was a good place for Tina to embark on her first real competitive outing, for what seemed like to us, an age ago. Tina Commented just before she went into the ring “It was good to be back in the saddle and competing again, after such a long enforced absence” and confessed “I am a little apprehensive having not competed for such a long time”.

We have always supported, where we can, the spring shows as they provide the opportunity (more…)

Let the Games Begin

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Once again after another cold dark winter, another season is upon us. We are probably keener than most to get going as we have missed three competitive seasons since Tina broke her leg, back at the start of the 2008 season. Though we maintained our involvement in showing during this period, there is nothing quite like getting out there and being involved in the thick of the action.

We are kicking off our campaign at the Northern Group Spring Show, at Bishop Burton College in Beverley. We will be taking TRUE ADDICTION an open gelding and AJA ESTAREYNA who last competed in 2008 at this same event and won. If you are going, we look forward to seeing you there and if not, we will catch up with you as the season progresses. Good luck to one and all. Let the games begin.
