Lynette Jackson rode Ballytruckle Riley in 2 rounds to come second place at the North Island Showhunter Championships 1.10m Championship class held at Woodhill Sands in February 2013. The pair were second to professional rider Phillip Steiner on Tequila Sunrise. We are so proud of Riley and are thrilled with how Lynette has made him into such an enjoyable ride.

Conor wins Showhunter class at Waitangi Weekend with score of 88%

Conor rode a brilliant round to win the 1.0m class at Woodhill Sands in early February 2013. Sally went really well for him. It was her last class for the weekend and she won it, thereby qualifying her for Horse of the Year 2013. Well done son.


Auckland Show Hunter Summer Show 2013

Ballytruckle Riley had a great time at Auckland Show Hunter Summer Show, he went in a 90cm class as a warm up and won the 1.15m. It was the first time he had been ridden at that height. He has really stepped up and is showing how powerful and correct a jump he has. He loves to jump, its by far his most favourite activity. He has achieved a lot this season and we are thrilled with how he is progressing and being beautifully ridden by Lynette Jackson.


Northland Xmas Show 2012

Xmas came early for us when we went to sunny Northland to compete at Showhunter.

Lynette Jackson rode Ballytruckle Riley in four classes and they won three of them and were placed in their first one. Here is a photo of them winning the 1.10m class


and a video of the round.

BOP Championship Show

Last weekend, we took three horses down to Taupo to compete in the BOP Championship Show.

Lynette Jackson on Ballytruckle Riley is having a nice time collecting ribbons and points for Horse of the Year. This combination were placed in several Hack classes and ended with getting a third placing so they are improving each time they enter the ring. Lynette has put many hours training into Riley and its beginning to show.

North Island Secondary School Showhunter Championships

Held in winter at St Peters College in Cambridge, ACG Strathallan College sent a team of 4 riders. In order of rider age they were Conor West on Ballytruckle Sally Gap, Bridget van Gessel on Reel NZ Safari, Julia Nicholson on Gold Fever and Niamh West on Ballytruckle Shamrock.


Riley- simply awesome jump

Ballytruckle Riley is a 7 yo 15-3hh Welsh cob X tb gelding- (Mill Creek Valiant X Rookley Rose).

He has recently been a catch ride for James Cole who is really enjoying schooling him. We are looking at selling Riley as he is too big and has far too much talent for us to ride. He belongs in a fabulous yard being a SJ superstar.

After 5 weeks of schooling on the flat and over jumps we went to a local SJ show with classes to 1.05m. He won the 1.05 and was placed 2nd in the 1.0m and the 95cm.

Clearing 1m 25

Rafferty wins his first class

Ballytruckle Rafferty, 5yo Welsh cob X Tb gelding, by Mill Creek Valiant out of Redeemable (Red Glow) has been ridden since November 2011. He has always loved being ridden, very cruisey and friendly. He went to a local Ribbon Day and the first class he went into he won!!

Best paced and Mannered. We also think Riff Raff is pretty cool, he has a rocking horse canter and Steve holds the reins between 2 fingers so light is the contact. You could ride this fellow with cotton thread for reins- he is so good in the mouth.

Win at HOY 2012 icing on the cake

Ballytruckle Shamrock 14-1 and a half hh Welsh cob X tb mare ridden by 13yo Katherine Martin had a fabulous time at HOY.

It was the second time our stud has competed at HOY so we were thrilled to come away with a handful of ribbons from 9 classes.
