Willinga Park is the most amazing equine complex in Australia! What a great place to compete!

Rebecca and I took BHM Spanish Love to compete in both the 5.3 and 5.2 Advanced tests and were thrilled with the performances.  Placing 11th and 12th respectively out of large professional fields and being the baby of the group by 12 months, this little mare just keeps on getting better.

And what a way to finish a great competition with BHM Spanish Love and Rebecca Walshe placing 5th in the Advanced Freestyle!

BHM BY DESIGN - FIRST OUTING!

Sky

I am so proud of the baby of the BHM dressage team with BHM By Design ridden by Kailia Simms of Canberra Performance Horses placing 3rd in his very first dressage test (Open 1.3 Preliminary) at National Capital Equestrian Dressage Championships today!

BHM By Design is following in the footsteps of his older brother BHM Spanish Amor who won the Champion Elementary and his auntie, BHM Spanish Love who won Champion Medium! I have no doubt BHM By Design will be joining them in the near future for his own Champion award!

Thank you Nina Boyd and Kailia for all the work you have done with him!
