HORSE: Northern Storm (Storm). Storm is a gorgeous little 15hh 19 years young Standardbred.
RESULTS: In March 2016 we competed at the SPPHASA State Championships, we are currently the 2016 State Champion Best Presented Open Junior Exhibit, State Champion Open Gelding, State Champion Open Rider U/18 and Supreme State Champion Open Rider. Royal Adelaide Autumn Horse Show was also successful, where we gained qualification for Royal Melbourne Horse Show next year, Werribee here we come!!
GOALS: Our goals for the rest of 2016 are to continue to strengthen our canter and work on our extensions in trot, he has the ability to do it, and it’s just a matter of finding a way for us to get there! Storm has a massive trot, so consistency in his gait is really important, something he is really starting to understand. We are currently schooling walk to canter transitions, he does it really nicely, so strengthening them will be fantastic.
