What's Up...

Some of our day to day happenings

Site work The website is having a revamp and I've been taken off track with my study, and oooh, it's taken on a bit much green. Too late to fix tonight, will have to try again later...

I've put up a couple of FaceBook pages, for the stud and also the farm. If I'm slacking here there should be information up on the Chrialka Sporthorses Facebook page...

Chrialka - Sport Horses


Whakamarumaru Station

29th Dec. Well there have been some changes - the horses that were with Andy Daines have come home - ish. Soliel stayed with Vicky Jacks and has now had her first ODE at Te Puke PC a few weeks back. She came in 5th, after being 2nd in the dressage, taking a couple of green rails in the show jumping and then blitzing around the XC for a clear round.
Piccolo came home and is being ridden by me - got to get her out to some lessons (for me) and ARC outings for us...
MJ has had a few weeks with Jonny Coddington, a few days with me (gave me a couple of really fun rides, see the sales page) and is now up with Nadesha Dick being further prepared for sale.
Bu is happy as a sand boy, with a group of mares in his usual 'serving' paddock, and Marty is a fairly happy lad, with just one mare that is a best friend, but possibly not a conjugal pal...
Holidays are generally going well. All the youngsters have been handled, as soon as the farrier has tidied their feet they will head out the back again, although Gienah has been pulled out and is currently being backed - again with Jonny Coddington. She is coming on well and we'll soon have some photos up showing her under saddle. Anyone looking for a strapping lass - could be for dressage, jumping or hunting?
And on the competitive front, it was great to see the results from Puhinui - Aleisha Collett with Mi Focus, a grand daughter of Bu (out of C. Redwood/Xena, now owned by Kate Manchester) won the Veterinary Associates CCI*, leading from start to finish. And Maddie McLean rode Brotherhood (by Bu out of Regency Star, by Imperial Seal, and owned by Petra Eatson) won the Point Two CNC* - Congratulations to all involved!
