Stuart Tinney March News 2011

Eventing at SIEC held their mid week competition on the 23rd & 24th February. In the CNC** Stuart came 4th on Orchard Hill and 12th and Kinnordy Genuine. Stuart was riding Murrabong Kinganui 2nd CNC* for Nidhi Dev while she is recovering from a shoulder operation, after being knocked over on the road by a bike while visiting her family in India!! Nidhi is still in India! Get better soon! Ferragamo also owned by Nidhi Dev came 3rd in the Prelim. Double Dare owned by Clare McKinnon had his first ever appearance at a competition, he was in the Intro and put in a fantastic dressage and jumping round, unfortunately he thought he was too fat to get over a skinny fence on the XC course and ended up walking home. Recently we welcomed Tara Rogers to our team. Tara took the ride on Koyuna Will, this was his first competition to place10th in the Intro. Well done Tara.

A quick turn around and back to SIEC for the weekend competition on the 26th and 27th. Kinnordy Rubino did a fantastic job and won the CNC** class from the start. Koyuna Levi came 4th in the Pre Novice B, Ferragamo owned by Nidhi Dev won the Pre Novice A. Clare’s Double Dare returned to the Intro class and overcame his fear of skinny XC jumps to finish in 12th. Koyuna Will was in the Intro class again with Tara and just finished outside the top ten. Jaymee was riding Tundra in the Pre Novice A and came 10th Thank you to Winning Appliances we finally won the fridge!!

Stuart headed to Brookleigh Equestrian Centre in WA for clinic from 4th -8th March. With a day at Elizabeth Moore’s who certainly has some very nice horses! The clinic was very popular. Don’t miss out on a chance to participate in the next clinic. Karen will also be available in the Maraylya clinics. Check out the clinics page on www.tinneyeventing.com or e-mail us to be put on the mailing list info@tinneyeventing.com the clinics at our home will be supported by our sponsors (see left) with thanks and a bbq lunch will certainly entice some of you! (Stuart’s cooking!) Dates on the next page.

The Interschool Championships was on the same time that Stuart was in WA. So it was left up to Karen to help Jaymee and Gemma compete in the Eventing on Thursday and SJ on Sunday. Not only did she do this she also coached 6 other children from a Sydney school on all 4 days. She now knows the ins and out of all disciplines and also how to deal with politics and lines for the show jumping warm ups!

Stuart has selected on the NSWIS Scholarship list. He is very honored to take a Gold Scholarship and looks forward to attending the NSWIS Squad schools throughout the year.

Stuart will also be doing some coaching at the very popular NSWIS Squad Schools, there is a user pay system so if you are interested let us know and we will put you in contact with Niki Rose who organizes the clinics.
