Rocco (Canyonleigh Sirecho) and owner/rider Lisa Kurr had their first Eventing start for the 2011 season on the beautiful Morven Park course last weekend.
A great start, with a good dressage score and clear cross-country and show-jumping phases; finished mid-field in an Open Novice Rider class..but all very close scores.
Photos from grcphoto have just been posted.
Rocco (Canyonleigh Echo Commander x C. Katy Stardust) is related to both the palominos I have at home at the moment.
C. Katy Stardust is the dam of the Canyonleigh Stud stallion C. Cloudchaser who is the sire of 4y.o. filly Cloud (C.Cloudchaser XC. Amazing Grace whose dam is also a grand-daughter of Kalarama Penny, dam of Katy)..
and also sire of 5 y.o. gelding Harry (C. Olympic Chaser, by C. Cloudchaser x C. Belle Olympia).
Cloud's in foal now, but I have hopes that Harry has also inherited the jumping "eye" and stamina.
