  •  News from Janet McLeod

Hi, I was just going through some old photos and files.  Not sure if you're interested (Yes we are Janet-Thank you)  but they are of my ASPA Blue Ribbon Jumbo (aka Tuck).   The Show pic is at the 1986 Vic State Show at Catani, we were riding off for Champion/Reseve (can't remember the class but he was 14 1/4 hh)  The others are at HRCAV old English plate & bending.  I can not thank Elva Sexton enough for breeding this mighty little pony and he was everything that the ASPA was promoting.  I did trace his breeding and managed to get him back in the desert on 3 sides, the other was mystery even to Elva.

Bamborough Prunella

 

Rider: Bridey Kate Gibson – 6 yrs old

Horse: – 7yrs old

Handler: David Hall

 

Bamborough Prunella won Runner up Leading Rein at Macquarie Bank at Canberra in September with me as the handler and took out the winner of the Leading Rein Pony at Dubbo Championships in November out of a huge 18 entries (David a close friend of ours) took over as handler as I was riding my newcomer hack in her event at the same time)

 

I bought “Prudence” as she is effectionally known as a yearling at the Bamborough Pony Stud auction when Bridey was 8 months old.........I am sure everybody thought I was crazy, but is very expensive and hard to find a good pony for your child.  So I thought I would give this a go and thankfully for us it all worked out wonderfully.  She is a beautiful pony who is also very competitive amongst the open ponies with her huge movement and flashy markings, she also has a lot of character just like her rider!!

 

Prudence and Bridey will be competing for the first time at Grand National in March which will be a great experience for them both, she will also be competing at Canberra, Sydney and Bathurst Royals this year so we have a very busy couple of months ahead of us.

 

Bridey loves competing at the Ag shows as everyone always recognises ‘Bridey and Prudence’ and she is always keen to trot up beside them on their thoroughbred hacks and have a chat.  Bridey also attends Pony Club on Prudence where she loves to meet up with friends her own age and do the jumping and sporting and of course eat lollies.

 

Many Thanks  

Penny Gibson

Fable Park Royalty 

(3 time winner at summer royal).

  •  Paulgren Park Phoenix :

    • Sire:   Cherrington Sir Dirk

    • Dam: Centaine of Marceau (SOD: Sarnau Victory)

    • Part Welsh Gelding

    •  DOB 28.9.07

    •  Owner / Breeder: Tricia & Anthony Pauling

  • Phoenix  was born during the height of the EI crisis, his dam Cenatine of Marceau, a mare we saved from slaughter, suffered terrifying fits after his birth and our worst fear was that we would lose both her and Phoenix. Centaine of Marceau, (Flirt) is our matriarch mare, and her loss would have devastated both of us. Thankfully she recovered.

  • Phoenix, in his three short years, has become a prolific Multi Champion, Supreme, National and Royal winner in NSW. His success as a show horse began as a yearling and he has been capably handled by my husband Anthony (who was a complete Novice when he and Phoenix started their career!) throughout the majority  of  these victories.

  • Phoenix is well known by all our friends, family and fellow competitors for his character and attitude. He has the ego of a show horse, is supremely confident and is a natural show off! His movement is exceptional and is readily displayed when he “plays”, usually during crucial moments in his workouts. Often this is what wins him the class. He certainly knows how to draw the judge’s eye! 

  • Despite the success Phoenix has had, we never take for granted what an amazing experience this horse has allowed us to have. Many people know the tears that I fight (very unsuccessfully!) after his big wins. He has opened up the world of showing to us, introduced us to many new friends and made us appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to produce these beautiful horses.

  • We look forward to Phoenix’s career under saddle. He will be a beautiful Hunter pony and we may even dabble in a bit of Pony Dressage as his movement is born for this arena…we just have to contain the ego!
