Our Emmaville Performance Horses team and Forest Park Riding School ran a Christmas Showjumping Competition on December 20 2015! It was a fantastic day and it was great to see so many riders doing some great rounds in the jumping ring. It was great to watch all classes and we saw some great improvement in riders over the day. It was fantastic to see many of our Emmaville clients competing over very bright gear and competitive courses. We believe that you all have improved a lot with your riding and how your horses are going. So many of you work so hard every day with your horses and it is wonderful to see all of your hard work is paying off. Well done!
A huge thank you must go to the wonderful helpers before, on and after the day. It is you who made it possible to run this show and without you, it would not have been possible. On such a hot day (nearly 40 degrees) all of our helpers (whether that be pole pickers, course builders, marshalls, judges, pencilers, runners, grooms, administrative help, our staff who helped build jumps and paint, and so many more to name!!) your help was amazing and you really did a fantastic job! Thank you also to those who helped before and after with set up/pack up, we really appreciate it. We hope that you have had some time to re-hydrate again and get some well deserved rest in some air conditioning! Thank you also to the hard workers in the canteen - your delicious food and drinks were definitely needed on the day! It was great to see our course built with our Emmaville/Forest Park Jumps - many of which have just received a face lift for the day!
Thank you to our sponsors for your support of our competition! You are all very generous and we are very appreciative for your support! Thank you Barastoc feed, Horseland Canberra, Horsezone, Anytime Fitness Weston and Woodshield. We had some fantastic prizes for our winners and place getters down to 5th! Thank you very much. Thank you to all riders and families who joined us yesterday! Showjumping is very important to our family and we run these competitions as we love the sport so much and it brings us joy to see you all improving in showjumping, having fun and learning along the way! It was such a hot day and you all did fantastic! We are planning another day in late January so we hope that you can join us again then.
Thank you all for your continued support. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope that you and your four legged friends have a safe New Year.
More photos will be uploaded soon.
