Macquarie Bank Hack Championships 16/17/9/11
Just back from the Mac Bank Hack Champs with the 3 newcomers and it has been a great couple of days. Iona Park Rhythm was 3rd in the prelim hacks, Harmony won her newcomer galloway class and we were delighted with her, sadly we missed her prelim class by 5 mins!!! Maestro competed in the open large showhunter ponies and was a finalist for champion so very happy with this little boy. Late on Saturday afternoon he competed in his newcomer and prelim showhunter classes as the fri show had been cancelled because of a factory next door blowing up! Our boy won his prelim large showhunter class and was reserve champion and then competed in newcomer lrg showhunter pony with a judge from a different ring and he came 3rd. We were a little disappointed with this one as he worked so well and looked like a showhunter. Such a good pony and very happy with the results. Roll on HOTY, All Welsh and National R P Show.....First 2 pics Iona Park Maestro, 2nd 2 Iona Pk Rhythm and the bottom 2 are of Iona Pk Harmony.
