Breeze and Banderas having a sneaky lie in.Hi from down under!! Today was an awesome day by anyone's standards I'm not sure if it has been matched or equaled but to be part of it was very special! We had the lady rider of the year class here in New Zealand and Katie had 4 runners.... There were plenty of contenders for the class.. The course was set the sun shone shone and the riders warmed up their mounts....about 60 lady riders from New Zealand plus the Aussie squad tackled the challengeing course but only one girl... The Golden Girl was able to jump clear. Not only one horse but on three out of her four rides Miss McVean showed us why she is the Kiwi Queen and no one could question her skill... She produced the only 3 clears in the class!! It was an incredible result and another super 1st place for Springfield being the fastest clear she didn't go into a jump off against ourselves haha that would have been funny!

More ribbons and sashes for Bart (Springfield) Leading Lady rider of the year.So Team McVean had another epic day.... The sun shone , yours truly is slowly blending in with all the tanned bodies( give me another week).

And on another note Sir Mark Todd arrived so he is on my agenda tomorrow, right now they are holding a fancy dinner called the Hall of Fame... We are having our own version of that right now... No jackets required, just lots of bubbles... Cheers!!
