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).

Recently at Whangarei Conor guided Shammy to a win in the 90cm Classic Category C class of 20 fiercely competitive and seasoned competitiors. We were so thrilled as we still have more polishing to do with this partnership.

We are preparing the truck for the long sojourn in the hot climate of Hastings. Meantime they will keep their fitness up with rides on beaches and other fun activities.
