Partbred, Welsh Cob x Throughbred

Jumping Champion of Senior Novice ring at Bombay Pony Club ORD

Niamh had a busy Sunday last weekend - on Ballytruckle Shamrock she rode two Level 1 tests at Auckland Manukau Dressage Group and scored better than the last time she rode there earlier in the month. She has been working on the pony being calm and going in self carriage. Now we need to polish her accuracy, square halt and canter work. Louisa Hill walked by so we introduced ourselves and had a chat about her wonderful riding at the Olympics. She complemented Niamh on her beautiful pony and advised her to "stay on ponies cos they rock!".

Ballytruckle Shamrock and Katherine Martin are Showhunter Champions


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.

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.
