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.

Woodhill Sands 1* Show



In the weekend Niamh and B. Shamrock really started to get their partnership going well. Niamh and Shammy collected four ribbons from eight rounds and got 9 points for HOY qualification.

I was thrilled to watch them both enjoying their classes and striving to do better, they were a picture of concentration and looked really super together.!!

In January 2012 at the New Year Showhunter and Showjumping Show at Woodhill Sands Katherine Martin rode Ballytruckle Shamrock with lovely flowing lines and made full use of the tight space on the grass in the rain to score an incredible 95% and win the Championship class for the Category C.
The showhunter judge said it was the best showhunter round she had ever judged! Well done Katherine and well done Shammie.

Horse of the Year 2010- here we come!

Recently Conor West and Ballytruckle Shamrock qualified for Horse of the Year to be held in Hastings in March 2010. Shammy is a homebred Welsh cob X tb mare, 7yo, 146cm. She is a brilliant schoolmaster for our 13 yo son who took the ride on her in March 2009. Shammy is by our elderly Welsh cob stallion MillCreek Valiant and is out of an unregistered Thoroughbred mare "Star" by Indian Ore (US) out of Blazing Star (Blazing Keel (US).

Kerikeri Outing for Millcreek Valiant progeny


One weekend in November 2009 we travelled to Kerirkeri with full sisters Tb welsh cob crosses Ballytruckle Shamrock and Ballytruckle Sally Gap on board to compete in the Showhunter registered and training rings.

Present on the day was another of Mill Creek Valiants progeny Red Rupert, owned by Emma Wiggins of Waimate North. He is out of a standard bred mare and is trained for harness and ridden. He has just started in the Showhunter training ring and from his clean action and laconic attitude he should do very well.
