After having a lovely relaxing holiday in Lanzarote with our good friends Adam and Matt, it was full steam ahead for a busy December.

Leighland Melody and Rachel made their British Dressage debut at Summerhouse Equestrian Centre with a second and a first, scoring 75%.

Dancer has also been on form with Vikki winning two classes at Rockhampton dressage.

Leighland Pearl and Xavier are now back from their holiday at Sally’s and in work.

The Christmas rallies were very well attended; 15 on the dressage day, 14 on showjumping day.  By far the highlight was Tia and Ashlin’s Father Christmas and Elf fancy dress outfits on dressage day (see photo below).  Both them and their horses wore their finery for their tests.

Christmas and New Year proved to be a hectic time and without a proper break, we decided to hop on a plane to Dubai to stay for a week with our friend Julie.
