Snip joined our team in 2010. Although he had mainly showjumped before coming to us, his aptitude for cross country was evident with good results in PC HT with his previous rider. Snip successfully competed with Lauren in EA & HRCAV horse trials competition, where he had wins & placings at Level 1, Pre Novice & 1*. In 2012, they completed the CCI* at Melbourne Three Day Event. When not competing, Snip has been used for beginner & schoolmaster lessons, a testament to his wonderful temperament & education. Snip also competed successfully whilst on lease with a young rider in 2013 (whilst Lauren was pregnant) and resumed eventing again with Lauren in May 2014.

Lauren purchased Henry as a weanling and he is very much part of the family (and totally rules the roost!). Henry has competed & placed at Introductory EA horse trials and pointed up to Level 2 HRCAV Showjumping. Henry is available for school lessons for intermediate riders & those wishing to jump. He is Mr Personality and will love you forever if you bring him a carrot or give him a scratch!
