“Stella” was purchased in late 2016 to get back to the 3* level after the retirement of Ashmead Her Highness due to injury. She is a big strong warmblood cross mare by Karingal shadow. Previously competed by Jess Rae, Stella’s strongest phase is definitely cross country but has been making really good progress in the dressage. Recently she placed 2nd in the CIC1* at Sydney International Horse Trials and then completed the CIC2* at Berrima Horse Trials.
The Barrel of Fun
“Shamus” is an Irish sport horse by Kilharken out of a thoroughbred mare. Following several stints as a lead pony at the racetrack he quickly made his way up the levels of eventing to three star. He has always been a very honest and trainable horse who makes up for his lack of height with his jumping ability. I made the tough decision in 2015 to sell him so he can show a junior the ropes. Since then he has won and placed at numerous 1 and 2* competitions.
Ashmead Her Highness
“Pippa” was first spotted as a yearling at her breeder’s farm in Mansfield, Victoria. While being a little independently minded at times, she has shown her ability right from the start. Finding dressage easy and being a keen jumper she won the CCI1* event at Qurindi. Then, stepping up to 2* very easily placing 6th at her first CIC2* at Canberra she started to show me her true ability. Unfortunately, a freak accident has led to me retiring her as a broodmare. Currently, she has a very athletic filly by Another Warrior on the ground and is in foal to him again.
“Timmy” is the big man around the stables, he is part Clydesdale but still manages to get under time xc thanks to a couple thoroughbred grandparents. He was found as a green broken 3yo and spent plenty of time as a lead pony at the racetrack before achieving success at eventing and dressage. He has been very successful at one star levels finishing in the top five at nearly every outing in his career. Timmy Almighty is also well known on the dressage circuit and is currently competing with my Aunt, Annabelle Warren. I competed him at the Sydney CDI 2017 in scoring a PB 64.5% in the PSG in front of 5 international judges.
