Welcome back to PMB, or if this your first visit we would like to make you welcome.
We have been making progress with the site and services we offer, and we hope to make this site a valuable tool for you.
First off I would like to tell you some of our upcoming services.
We are starting a "library" of Horse books and DVDs for loan.
Many horse books are very expensive and it is difficult to justify spending the money to purchase a book that may not be what you want or need.
Or, you may not be able find the book you are after.
We will be listing a database of the books we have available for loan.
There will be a joining fee and deposit system for this library as the books can be very expensive.
As an alternative, we will accept donations to the library instead of the joining fee.
We are very excited to be able to provide this service and hope we will have a workable system in the near future.
Powder Monkey Business has been created as a business servicing Bathurst and Lithgow region of the Central Tablelands in New South Wales, Australia.
We commenced with our personal frustration at the lack of services in various areas, and we have grown from there.
In addition, it allows us to indulge in our combined passions on a national scale, that is, music, computers and horses.
A strange combination, but here we are!
Our focus is quality and professionalism in all areas.
We believe in doing a job well and in ensuring you will be pleased to continue using our services on a long term basis.
Our newsletter has been replaced by articles on the website here, and archive of the old ones is available on the site.
This is partly for cost reasons, partly for time management reasons.
We may organise the printing and release of a paper version around the saddleries and clubs again if there is a demand.
We are not sure of the format yet, or what it will contain, but we are open for suggestions.
We will be including on the site here a list of clubs and horse activities for us all, and hope to have you be able to submit these yourself, but at this stage we would love to have you email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know when things are on.
We also aim to have an advertising forum for the Bathurst and Lithgow District.
We aim to strengthen the links between the different groups of horse people in the district.
We expanded to provide advertising at highly reasonable rates.
So, what services do we offer?
Animal & home care services -
we look after your pets, animals and home whilst you are on holidays.
Our animal care is done in your own home, as we have no boarding facilities.
Our fees obviously depend on the number and types of visits, and the distance we have to travel.
Music for your Horse to Dance to -
Music creation for freestyle dressage tests and performances
Welcome to our Freestyle services! PMB has had stunning success in its first year, 2006, winning the Inter I Kur at the NSW State Championships with Lisa Martin and Rhythmic. Her performance was a clear 3% ahead of the second place getter.
Although Lisa competed at the Nationals, some technical difficulties prevented her repeating her success.
Despite the problems, she was still well up in the field at the end.
She well and truly demonstrated at the 2006 Dressage with the Stars in Melbourne that she is a top competitor and came third in the Inter I Kur in a top class field.
Despite Lisa’s superb technical skills and scores, PMB are proud that her artistic scores in each case have been higher than the technical. We can truly say we have strongly contributed to her success in the Freestyle competitions.
A true indication of the importance of having good choreography and music for your performance.
Lisa contracted PMB for her choreography, her music selection and the production for each performance.
She also engaged PMB to develop her Grand Prix Kur for 2007.
PMB will also assist you with your choreography at all levels, from Preliminary through to Grand Prix.
