After a rather long Winter, Spring is just around the corner and we are looking forward to the start of a new competition and stud season.
Gemini's Classic Opera ended his 5 year old first season winning a BE Event on his dressage score in the 20s and attracted some wonderful mares to stud. Having already had the Burghley CCI**** mare Bunratty Rose he went on to have bookings to a mix of eventing and showing mares, including both HOYS and Royal International finalists.
We continue to follow Gemini’s Classic Opera’s full brother who is 16.2hh and had a terrific season eventing last year. The rising 8 year old bay gelding called The Classic Composer, was second in his first Intermediate novice at Aston Le Walls, was 17th at Somerford Park International CCI* and heads for his first Intermediate later this spring and all being well is bound for a CIC** later this year.

Gemini’s Classic Valentine, the full sister to Classic Opera, had a terrific season with Steve Pitt and Vicky Smith with her in-hand showing in 2017, resulting being Reserve Champion at the NPS Summer Championships in the same class that her full brother Gemini’s Classic Opera was Champion in 2015.
The full sister to CCI*** Eventer Lemington Lett Dance
The FULL sister to Judy Bradwell’s CCI*3 Eventer, Lemington Lett Dance, is due to have her first foal by Gemini’s Classic Opera later this spring. Lemington Lett Dance was 2nd in the CCI*3 at Bramham (Double Clear), and is a dual CCI2* Winner (Thirlestane 1st and 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 in her showing career before coming to us.
