News from Gemini Stud

With 2017 well underway, we are looking forwards to seeing the Gemini bred horses competing In Hand and Under Saddle. 

The Classic Composer is our 7 year old full brother to the stallion Classic Opera is looking to complete his qualification for his first 1 Star BE Event with Lisa Freckingham. He & Lisa finished their 2016 season with 2 great placings at Novice and consistently scored dressage marks in the 20’s.

Geminis Classic Valentine the full sister to Classic Opera is spending this season with Steve Pitt and Vicky Smith at Mill House Stud farm as part of her In Hand Showing career and will go for her mare grading this October. Steve & Vicky along with Simon Charlesworth kindly produced Classic Opera for us In Hand; culminating in him being a HOYS Cuddy Finalist.

Classic Opera starts BE Eventing this season with Lisa Freckingham. He has been working at home and at Vale View Equestrian Centre over the winter jumping double clears and enjoying some Cross Country Schooling in between; we can say with confidence that he is certainly very brave XC!.

We have recently acquired the full sister to Judy Bradwell’s CCI*3 Eventer Lemington Lett Dance. Lemington Lett Dance was 2nd in the CCI*3 at Bramham (Double Clear), and is a dual CCI2* Winner (Thirlestane 1st & Weston Park 1st - double clear on both occasions). His other key career highlights include Houghton CCI2* 2nd and Osberton CIC2* 7th.  His pedigree (and that of his full sister) is particularly interesting to us as they are by the pony stallion Court Crooner who produced many successful show ponies. His full sister having qualified for Royal International herself before coming to us.
