Well it’s been another great year, Christmas and the New year are just around the corner.

 Victoria would like to thank Spooks Riding Wear for providing their quality range of competition and casual clothing this year. On or off the horse, you won't find her (or any other members of the team) without spooks on. Victoria competes in their stock shirts and new line of white breeches. She says "they're so comfortable with the stretch and the fabric is light enough to wear in warmer weather." We can't wait for the new catalogue to arrive! http://spooksriding.com.au/

 Also a big thank you to Bit Bank Australia for their ongoing support and consultations. Bit Bank Australia supplies the most suitable and quality bits, custom fitted to your horse. Their range of sizes, shapes and makes are all viewable on www.bitbankaustralia.com.au. Plus, they come with an awesome 30 day free trial to ensure that the bit is perfectly suited to your horse.

Victoria is thrilled to be signing with Nature Vet again for 2013. Their range of supplement products are great for keeping the horses in optimum condition, especially when competing in hotter weather or over long distances from home. Their products restock deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and/or amino acids, which help keep the horses muscles hydrated and energized. Their products are highly recommended for hardworking horses.

http://www.ceva.com.au/

The team owes a big thankyou to Horse 360 for keeping the horses loose and supple over the 2012 season. Their experts identify all the different muscle groups of the horse that may be over or underworked, and release any tightness or soreness that may have eventuated from training.

http://horse360.com.au/

Overall, it's been a hugely successful year and we owe it all to the team around us. Thanks again, have a Happy Christmas & New Year everyone!!

She loves this jacket as it fits well and looks smart on. She also wore the Spooks Stock Shirts for every class within the competition. She said they're comfortable and durable enough for everyday riding but also look and feel great for top level competition. 

Victoria would like to thank Nature Vet for providing their vitamin and mineral products for competitions. The Beechwood Team can sometimes have up to a week away for competitions interstate, and Victoria says Nature Vet's products are great for keeping the horses in optimum condition and performing at their peak.

Victoria would also like to thank Bit Bank Australia for their ongoing support and providing each of the horses with the most suitable snaffles and weymouth bits. Each of the horses have their own individual bit which is trialed and tested to make sure the design is perfectly suitable for the horse. She says it is imperative for the horse to be comfortable, and Bit Bank has a market range of top quality products which are prescribed for each individual horse.

The Beechwood Team are now looking forward to the up and coming Brenda Wittman Classic in July. 

Until then...
