Show Season Update and NEC News!

Everyone here at NEC has been quite busy over the last few months with show season and we have had many great successes! Our Silver Show Team which was made up of Meaghan Cullen, Rhonda Burke, Justin Li, Ginette Sheen, Adelise Lalande and Lea Mitchell had a super season! Meaghan Cullen and NEC Tempo Primo were champions at every showin the JR Training division as were Rhonda Burke and Don Deimos in the AA Training division.  Justin, Ginette and Lea all moved up to First Level this year with a ton of success and great scores!

Our Discovery Show Team was also very busy this summer. Marilyn Anions, Julie Fujimura and Trish Roberts all headed out and rode some great tests- Julie debuted her First Level Freestyle at Spiritwood and came home with a score of 66%!

Show Season finished up with the Eastern Ontario Silver Championships held at Starlit Farm and NEC came home with Rhonda Burke and Don Deimos Champions AA/O in Training, Meaghan Cullen and NEC Tempo Primo JR Training Champions, Justin Li and Unfayzed JR First Level Reserve Champions, Christine Larose and Muddy Devil Open First Level Champions. Both Adelise Lalande with Midnight Dancer and Ginette Sheen rode lovely tests and each finished third in their divisions.

 

Also with this busy season, we have been very busy at home aswell. Our summer started off with a bang as we hosted the Jane Savoie Clinic in early June. Thanks so much to all that helped out including clinic co-organizer Trish Roberts. Please see the events page for the photo gallery.

At the beginning of the summer, we purchased a lovely four year old Iberian Sport horse gelding named NEC Kairos, who made his show debut in July with scores over 70%! Currently, he is being ridden by Lea and the pair will compete next year at the Silver Level.

"Roo" is now four months old, has been weaned and spends his day with Tempo and Kai, he has grown so much and is quite the character in the barn!

We made  a number of improvements to the farm this summer aswell, including matting the aisleway in the Main Barn, building a second tack room in the Small Barn and oiling the arena footing with Da-Lee Dust Control.

NEC would also like to congratulate Paula Mulvey on the purchase of James Pawley's Lark. The two make a wonderful team, we are looking forward to taking them to some shows next summer! We would also like to welcome our new clients Nancy Madge with Russian and Razz and Mylaine Givens who has begun leasing First Lady.

Enjoy the Autumn!
