Lyn and Aurora Naseebah

Lyn and Aurora Naseebah nearing the finish line.

Two members of the Aurora team had a big weekend heading up to the Mt Nimrod Club’s ride, on Sunday August 17.

Lyn and Aurora Naseebah and Marie Smith and Aurora Clouded Moon packed up early on Saturday, and after a stop at Hampden for the horses to stretch their legs, the travellers arrived at the ride base at Mount Somers, near Methven, at around 5pm.

Naseebah is a high Crabbet percentage mare (95.3%) by Silver Omen and out of the Dellmount Sudani mare Dell Nameera. Clouded Moon is a pure Crabbet mare, by Australian stallion Boomori Finale and out of Silver Crescent, who has two younger progeny at Aurora.

Both mares did the 40km ride, and it was the first time out at an endurance ride for Naseebah. Both qualified and Lyn and Marie were made very welcome by the club.

It was perfect riding weather, with a sunny day, but not too hot.
