Hi, I was just
going through some old photos and files. Not sure if you're interested
(Yes we are Janet-Thank you) but they are
of my ASPA Blue Ribbon Jumbo (aka Tuck). The Show pic is at the 1986 Vic
State Show at Catani, we were riding off for Champion/Reseve (can't remember
the class but he was 14 1/4 hh) The others are at HRCAV old English plate &
bending. I can not thank Elva Sexton enough for breeding this mighty little
pony and he was everything that the ASPA was promoting. I did trace his
breeding and managed to get him back in the desert on 3 sides, the other was
mystery even to Elva.

Bamborough Prunella won Runner up Leading Rein at Macquarie Bank at Canberra in September with me as the handler and took out the winner of the Leading Rein Pony at Dubbo Championships in November out of a huge 18 entries (David a close friend of ours) took over as handler as I was riding my newcomer hack in her event at the same time)
I bought “Prudence” as she is effectionally known as a yearling at the Bamborough Pony Stud auction when Bridey was 8 months old.........I am sure everybody thought I was crazy, but is very expensive and hard to find a good pony for your child. So I thought I would give this a go and thankfully for us it all worked out wonderfully. She is a beautiful pony who is also very competitive amongst the open ponies with her huge movement and flashy markings, she also has a lot of character just like her rider!!
Prudence and Bridey will be competing for the first time at Grand National in March which will be a great experience for them both, she will also be competing at Canberra, Sydney and Bathurst Royals this year so we have a very busy couple of months ahead of us.
Bridey loves competing at the Ag shows as everyone always recognises ‘Bridey and Prudence’ and she is always keen to trot up beside them on their thoroughbred hacks and have a chat. Bridey also attends Pony Club on Prudence where she loves to meet up with friends her own age and do the jumping and sporting and of course eat lollies.
