Whoo hoo ........

My eldest son Matt is going to London, a member of the Australian Showjumping Team.  We are so proud of Matt and his little horse "Watchi" (to his friends...... Watch Me vd Mangelaar to everyone else).  I just wanted to share these photos of Matt and Watchi with you all.  You can click to make them bigger.
Photo courtesy of Equinos International Photography.
Matt and Watchi competing in Florida, USA a couple of months ago.  Dont you love Watchi's little white patch on his tummy.

Matt and Watchi relaxing down in the stable area, with Lacey (their dog) watching on.

He's  a relaxed little horse.....so sweet.

And this picture of Matt was taken when he had just turned 8 at his very first competition (you have to be 8 to compete at Pony Club level).  His little pony "Dasher" was a fast little mare .... a great mount for a young boy. 

My husband and I head off to London on Monday .... it will be so exciting!
