Edenbridge+Oxted show. Moriarty won the PBA youngstock class and then stood reserve PBA champion just as his sire Royal Command of Wentward did in 2008!July 2012
13.7 Kent County show continued our run of '2nds'. Moriarty was 2nd in PBA 2+3 year olds in very strong company and Ripley (Murraybrook Statesman) on his first time of travelling to a show behaved beautifully and was 2nd in yearling PBA class. Also in that class was a filly by Spider (to a visiting mare) who was 3rd and in 4th at also her first show away from the farm was Murraybrook Dangermouse with Colette Walker.
The results in the riding pony classes were not quite so good as due to timing issues caused by the weather the next ring had the driven hackney ponies at the same time, which my boys found very exciting! Murraybrook Dangermouse performed well being placed 4th.

7.6 South of England show - Moriarty 2nd 2/3 year old PBA, 6th 2/3 year old riding pony breeding. Not the judges type in that class but he was much admired by everyone else. Very pleased with the PBA class as he beat other county winners and was 2nd to the overal PBA champ.

2nd, it was time to say goodbye to my gorgeous welsh mare, Grace (Newhouse Damsel) dam of Murraybrook Lady Carys and Murraybrook Dangermouse, plus many others in Wales. She'd just turned 22 but her arthritis had got to the point she was no longer comfortable. R.I.P Grace.April 2012
