What a lovely day it was today. It's always a huge relief to see a bit of sunshine, especially after the amount of rain that we have had fall in the past week or so. Karen came down for a wee ride on Brennan today and my friend Caroline visited for the afternoon and took the opportunity to take Meg for a spin. I love watching my friends ride my horses - it's almost as much fun as riding them myself!
I managed to get the camera stuck on manual focus when I was taking these pix and only sorted it out toward the end of the ride so not very many photos of Brennan and Karen this time around.
I live on a 25 acre property in the Wairarapa (NZ) with my husband Nick and daughter Amy. Here we surround ourselves with horses of all shapes, ages and sizes. My passion is to breed and raise sport horses for the everyday rider and the stud's catch-phrase is 'Breeding extraordinary horses for ordinary riders'. We have been running the stud for the last decade and just love it! We currently stand two stallions. TF Hamish, a Wairarapa Stationbred and Crossiebeg Brennan, a purebred Connemara. We used to stand the purebred Clydesdale stallion, Kintyre Lodge Robbie who has gone to a new home in the SI and the, now gelded, Mighty Heights son, 'TF Life O'Reilly', who is currently in work with a young rider in Wellington. Our mares are of Clydesdale, TB and Irish Sport Horse breeding and we pride ourselves on producing attractive horses & ponies with superb temperaments and sound constitutions.
