Anna – January 2015
Having brought Gleavo in May 2014 we always said that we would try and make 2015 ‘our year’. 2014 was an unbelievable year having only had Gleavo for a short time, in which he won the PetPlan Elementary Open Area Festival in August before very quickly making the move up to mine and Gleavo’s first Advanced Medium’s to enable us to apply for the BD Junior squads. When we brought Gleavo it was always the plan to get onto a squad with him, although we had never thought that it would happen in the first year!! With 2014 being very positive, I have got even bigger plans for 2015 which include aiming to ride at both the Summer and Winter nationals, getting onto one of the higher Junior squads, to begin competing at Prix St. George and possibly do my first international.
We have also recently purchased a foal, Platinum Commodore aka Olly, who is by Woodlander Clapton who is by Christ/Londonberry/Benz and out of a KWPN mare, Lanoeska who is out of Voltaire and Zanoeska (something for the breeders out there!). I very much look forward to working with Olly as well as the team at Platinum Stud in the near future.
