The walk way out of indoor arena at Boneo Park, just beautiful!
Red Hill show was held at Boneo Park for the third year running and all I can say is “WOW”!. Boneo Park would have to be one of the nicest well established Equine centres being constructed.

The Indoor arena
Team Joyce travelled to Boneo Park for the first time and we were so delighted with what we saw. The Red Hill Agricultural show has been held at Boneo Park for the last 2 years and we can see why they keep on going back. Honestly this equine facility is just fantastic! The property is privately owned and offers agistment with first class facilities. They have many large outdoor riding areas and sanded arenas. The indoor arena has 4 large mirrors as well so one can easily see themselves . The stables for the agisters are set in a compact area and have the wash bay, tack/tie up area all within the same spot. They provide your own lockable tack box and even a washing machine! Red Hill really have picked a wonderful place to hold there show each year because the competitors are also offered first class facilities with plenty of power, water parking and either under cover stables or very strong metal yards. Each truck or float can be parked on a mowed grass area with your very own tap and power plug!

Here is a picture of a very good friend of Team Joyce, Michelle Wareing and Jet, they had just jumped in the Maiden D. Jet is showing great potential and Michelle does enjoy riding him very much.
Wesley and LH King Arthur were first entered in the Open 1.20m A2 class. They jumped a clean round but not quick enough for the first four placing’s.

The next class was the 1.30m Open and the pair had 2 rails down , Wes was very pleased with this results as this was only the second attempt at 1.30m ever for LH King Arthur.

On the Sunday Red Hill have 2 rings running, the indoor arena has another course set up starting at 70cm and there were a lot of riders competing in this ring. The warm up area for the indoor was right out the side, so easy to get to and very spacious.

Team Joyce waited for the 1.40m Open class, and this was a very first for LH King Arthur. He has 9 points in D Grade EA, so he is technically a baby but Team Joyce started him later in life because he was growing so big and slow, he is a 7 year old turning 8 this August and is now big ,strong and ready to jump bigger courses. Wes wanted to see how he would cope with the widths and heights. Arthur went super”, he had only 3 rails and they were soft rails ,he was just getting a little to deep to those fences but he stayed focused and happy drawing into each fence they approached. Height and width do not seem to be an issue for King Arthur, its a matter of doing more and getting his canter together to make the distances more correct. LH King Arthur placed 6th Team Joyce were stoked!!
