2014 SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE
PROGRESS REPORT – REMI LIBERTY BELLE S & ALEX
What has Belle been doing?
We go on little walks around her paddock and around Shane’s property (where she
is growing up) and have also taken her and Flo (Belle’s best friend) on a little adventure down the
Every weekend and also some weekdays (when I have the opportunity with uni) I
spend time with Belle in her paddock.
Brushing her all over
Leading her around the paddock
Belle will happily lead beside me and follow me around the paddock even if she
would rather be laying down under her shelter.
Picking up and cleaning out her feet
Every chance I get I pick up Belles feet just to get her used to it
Tie up training
Sometimes when I go to ride Ana I will tie Belle up and leave her, and then go
and play with her after wards
She is also tied up while I am brushing her and doing her feet
How is she growing up?
Belle has grown into a beautiful young lady. Her face has matured so much and she
is starting to take some sort of shape and doesn’t look so much like a donkey anymore.
She is growing very very fast. Every day I swear she gains another
Her personality has shot through the roof... she enjoys peoples
She walks up to anyone in the paddock
She usually neighs at me if she sees me in the distance feeding Ana carrots and
will continue to neigh until she gets her fair share
She LOVES carrots
Whenever I pull out my phone she will set herself up for a selfie or try and eat
it, it’s almost like she is human.
She enjoys playing with other animals such as cats and dogs
She’s taken a fancy to one of Geraldine’s cats
What I plan on doing with her in the near
I am hoping that this year, now that she is a little
older, that I will be able to take her to places with me
I am also hoping to take her on a lot more walking adventures
I want to teach her a few tricks like smiling, saying yes and no, and possibly
I also want to start de-sensitising her to more challenging things such
Saddles clothes and rugs
Flappy things like plastic bags
Overall, Belle and I have formed a very strong bond and I am very happy with her
progress. Thankyou to all the Scholarship Supporters for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I am
looking ahead to the day I can actually ride her cross country.

2013 SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE
REMI LIVINGSTONE S
I hope you are all having a lovely day!
Doc is currently 2yrs and 3months old and is standing at approximately 16.3hh. He
is always an angel to be around both in the paddock and in training. My most recent accomplishments with him
were, teaching him to lunge and introducing him to the bridle. Both things of which were very easy to do,
seeing he has such a kind nature.
Tor and Mel Van Den Berg and I have discussed breaking him in during the
September school holidays, so I am able to be present for the process, which I am very excited about. I can’t
wait to be able to finally ride my boy!
Thank you all again for presenting me with this amazing opportunity to own and
train one of the beautiful Scholarship babies.

REMI STUD DESIGNER FOAL
“Create your own Champion”
Due to the global economic downturn, we, like many other
breeders, have decided to reduce the number of foals we will produce this year. So for the first time, and
possibly the only time, we are offering a Designer Foal Program using our wonderful broodmares to be bred to
the stallion of your choice. This is an opportunity for breeders to
obtain genetics that otherwise would only be available if you imported a mare from Europe. more....
