Some great news for our Training Centre Youth Handlers - Ella Purvis and Shir Carmichael who  competed throughout the show season  with their own miniature horses, and also horses owned by our stud.  This competition is New Zealand wide, and we travelled as far as Oamaru to compete at the Regional Show.  The Junior Youth Handler section was won by Shir Carmichael, with Ella Purvis a close 2nd!!!!!       How terrific is that!   Now there is a big challenge for all our riding centre clients to compete in the miniature horse world, and try and do as well as Ella and Shir.  There will be training days coming up nearer the show season for those who wish to perhaps do some showing.  Classes include showmanship, obstacle courses, jumping etc.  Miniature horses will be available for hire for certain shows - enquiries welcome.
