Dressage today at AHDC with Winmallee De Nisha. She is a very good girl and got me through the tests. My eyes were hanging on the ground from no sleep with foal watch. I hope Remi gets this foal out soon as we have dressage next weekend as well.
Certainly not my best riding but happy with how we went for our second competition at medium. 4A - 64.8%, 1st, 4B - 62.8% (1 x error of course) 1st. Lots to improve on but the work is becoming more consistent.
Thank you Melanie Sabeeney coming out to support me and get me through the day. Thank you Sofya Chernykh for staying the night and helping me out. Thanks for the lovely photos.

We've had an overwhelming response for the clinic!! We will be making up a timetable to see how many lessons I can squeeze in for everyone. We will be making a waiting list for the people that cannot fit and if there is cancellations, we will use them. The people on the waiting list can come and watch as often as they like.
We will be asking everyone for a $100 deposit to secure their places in the clinic.
So nice to see people wanting to learn the Classical Way of riding it makes my heart very happy. Follow us on our Facebook page for regular updates.
We will keep you posted on what is happening.
People wanting to book please still book as We are not sure how many lessons we can do without falling in a heap

What a day at our first dressage for over 2 years. First time at Medium for Winmallee De Nisha. Very proud of her dealing with the horrific weather all day (especially in my tests).
First test with horizontal rain, hurricane winds we managed to get a 64.25% which made us the winners. I was absolutely frozen after that test and looked like a drowned rat. Change of clothes ready for the next test.
2nd test was no where near as good, I just managed to remember it but not work Nisha as well as I should have. I certainly let her down a little. Horrible weather again and we scored 57.94 and managed to win this test as well.
I could not be happier with this lovely girl. Lots to work on and look forward to my next tests with her. Thank you so much Dakota Jones for helping me and taking photos when warming up. Thank you Barrie & Sarita Stratton for all your great lessons.

ALL BREEDS SHOW AT MCLAREN DISTRICTS RIDING CLUB
A huge day at the All Breeds Show at McLaren Districts Riding Club. This was De Nisha's first time out for 14 months. What a good girl, was a little unsettled as she wanted to be with her friend Bess. Her foal was weaned 5 days ago so I was very impressed with her.
Was great to have the Winmallee girls competing today and I am very proud of them all. Thank you Dakota Jones for coming to watch and then helping. Thank you Judy Pearson for running a wonderful show.
I am so sorry Karen Williams I forgot to thank All Stars Browbands for my wonderful browband De Nisha is wearing.

Welcome to Winmallee Hollands Bend Flawless
Welcome to Winmallee Hollands Bend Flawless (Furst Heirnrich x Royal Classic/Sunny Boy). I now have my breeding program set up. This has taken me 16 years of success, heartache and plenty of hard work and of course... money. Starting from scratch is extremely hard to do but I have proven it can be done later in life. So many hard decisions made on what stallions and breed lines I want for my breeding program. Huge thank you goes out to Jane Bartram helping me through all my decisions.
I now have my mare Winmallee De Nisha (De Niro), Flawless as above, Hollands Bend Regal Classis my colt (Royal Classic x Celeste Laura) & Winmallee Donatello colt (Don Martillo).
This is why unfortunately I have to sell Hollands Bend Ravel as I do not need a gelding. This is such a hard decision but just had to be made as I cannot have too many horses.
Thank you Melanie Sabeeney for having to listen to all my changes and helping me through decisions. Of course huge thank you to my parents (John Evins) and my husband (Graeme Bear Evins) for supporting me through all of this. I maybe in my 50's but my dream has come true.

All Breeds Group Young Stock Show
Just for something different on a stormy rainy day I thought I would take HB Flawless (Furst Heinrich x Royal Classic/Sunny Boy) to the All Breeds Group Young Stock Show.
I do not usually take a horse out this early after purchasing them but wanted to support this group, I certainly did not want to take my very large foals as they are turned out. So with Flawless (Fly) I thought I would put some training in this week with some work in the arena. Taught her to lunge so I could lead out at the show. Taught her to go on my float Friday & Saturday. Did a practice wash on Friday (which she was not a fan). Then washed her properly on Saturday and she was such a good girl. Plaited her up for the first time. So she had many new things thrown at her and I was very impressed with her behaviour.
Travelled well to the show and very quiet when she arrived. We only did a few events as the weather was getting a little rough so we left as she had already had a big day for her first outing. I was also having pain with my leg and did not want to push things.
Missed my Warmblood classes and 2 yld classes as she had been so good so why ruin it.
1st - Handler over 50
2nd - Led Hack over 15hh
Jane Bartram you have to be proud of this lovely baby, I certainly am

16th September 2019
SVDC yesterday with Winmallee De Nisha. Another very long day with a perfect horse and a very exhausted rider. One day soon I will be able to ride my tests correctly without a foggy head. Remi will have to foal soon then hopefully I will be back to normal.
Had a great day with great friends Melanie Sabeeney & Dakota supporting me through my emotional melt downs through the day. Me being an absolute perfectionist made it hard for me when I could not think straight. Very happy with this amazing horse who just does not wrong. 2 x Medium tests again today with 1st test which I rode slightly differently experimenting on how much engagement and tempo. This is what it is all about working out how do get the tests the best I can. Did not have enough energy in this test. Made an error of course and mucked up a few movements but this happens 60.76%
2nd test I rode with more energy and it was much better, still lots to work on 64.30%.
