2012 has seen the arrival of our newest Team Kilminster family member!
Going by the name Lovelyhill Sahara, or just Sahara to her friends, this lovely little mare moved in with Monty on 29th January and immediately settled in well.
Sahara actually belongs to my own partner Martin, but is as much a Team Kilminster member as Monty and Martin are!
So what are Sahara statistics? Well, she is a New Forest x Appaloosa, 9 years old,stands at approx 15.1hh and is a Dun Spotty - and is lovely!
Previously she has been a happy hacker and started some schooling work when Martin purchased her back in 2008, including jumping, which she took to very well, however we are looking to up her game and start competing at dressage as soon as she is ready, there is some work to be done first, but as she tries so hard to please, we are not anticipating that this will take too long!
Both myself and Martin will be the ones out and about on her, and maybe our sponsored rider Nicki Strong may well be seen jumping her at some point too.
As she has only just moved in, we are taking things a little slowly with her to begin, let her settle and find her feet, so to keep her ticking over we have been using the pessoa on her and these are the first pictures of her at work with Team Kilminster...
As you can see, a true pro! Settled in to the new arena and just got on with it, what a star!
Keep visiting the website for updates on Sahara's progress and hopefully some competition news!
