Report and Pictures Berni Saunders.




Ridden 6 yo sponsored by
“The Ace Group” and “International Animal Health”




Jaybee  Alabaster


Jaybee  Alabaster and Melissa Hughes. looked fantastic in the warm-up.

Melissa is part of the successful Jaybee Team and will soon be moving to Queensland with Tor to work full time with the Jaybee horses. Alabaster was importer in his dam Gloria by the well respected German stallion Glorieaux and he was sired by Alabaster. Gloria has gone on to produce another AWHA stallion - Jaybee Don Grande (by Don Schufro)  who is owned by a syndicate in  Melbourne. It is great to see people like Bev Edwards importing top quality horses which  will strengthen the gene pool in future years. 

About to go in for their ridden class.  Tor Van Den Berge takes over the reins
and Alabaster looks sensational.  He has a terrific temperament and loose movement.



Koolrasta Park Vanity


Koolrasta Park Vanity and Cynthia Mc Donall
By the superb Trakenher stallion Tallyho Voltaire from Springfield Constance.



Harvest Aragorn


Harvest Aragorn and Sally-Ann Barbera
Aragorn is by Abbylara Avante from
Northern Catherine.
He is a huge horse and seems to have thrown to his dam's side.



Precious Metal




Ridden 7 yo and over sponsored by Weightlifter




Waiwera Domino


Waiwera Domino is by the Anglo Arabian stallion
San Domingo and from Waiwera Lykalander - he had a very
successful show for owner Melinda Knowles.



Skyview Brydie


Skyview Brydie and Angela Latter look so elegant and composed.
She is by
Don Xavier from Jessie - well done Angela.



Argentille Illettra


Argentille Illettra pictures here when he won earlier in the day.
The 10 YO gelding is by Ilkay from
Argentille Wykita Bey
He is owned by Georgina Brown.



Valley View  Romani


Valley View  Romani and Sue Law.
This mare is like her sire - Argentille Gullit who was imported from Holland and
then exported as a Grand Prix Dressage horse for Carl Hester to ride for the UK at
the Sydney Olympics.  The stallion was sold for well over a million dollars
something that his breeder Brian Silvia is very proud to have achieved.
Romani is from a mare named Kokoda.  Well done Sue.



Laser Entrapment


Laser Entrapment has a beautiful walk with swing and energy - I cannot see why his
extended walk would not justify a 10!  He is by Chopin from a mare named Kyglen.
He is owned and ridden by Melissa Oven.  A lovely horse.



Bonsai Razee


Bonsai Razee and Petra Marz as they appeared in Saturday's Dressage competition.
The finely build and elegant gelding is by
Mirat Zarif from Trimba Amazing Grace,



Hidden Talent


Hidden Talent and Kate O'Connor prepare for their inside ridden class.
This mare is beautifully bred by the respected stallion Barrabadeen Talent,
she is out of Deveron Antonette - a mare with a little bit of 'dersert blood' (Arabian.
Kate did a good job with her talented by reactionary mare.  Good Luck.!



Waiwera Valmae


Waiwera Valmae still has some maturing to do, but she is a lovely big loose
mare with plenty of scope.  She is by
Valuta from the Duellschutz mare Duell Astyll.
I can see much of Valuta in this mare - he was superb way back when campaigned
by Gert Donvig who sadly died in a motor accident in 1989.  Gert was a
Junior Dressage Champion in Denmark before he came to Australia and married
Mary Sutherland (now Mary Hanna)  Chris Cady owns and rode Valmae.



Argentille Brindabella


Argentille Brindabella taken after an earlier class.
Brindabella has had a great career.  She is by Argentille Biathlon
Honey Snow, she is owned and ridden by Georgina Brown.



British Justice








Champion Ridden Warmblood sponsored by Horseland Narellan

Jaybee Colleen

Jaybee Colleen - Tor calls her "his Princess" and it is not hard to see why!

Jaybee Colleen and Tor Van Den Berge flew the flag high for Jaybee Stud from Queensland.

Bev Edwards made a huge effort to travel 13 hours to be part of the day
and catch up with a game of scrabble with her daughter-in-law Helen (wife of her son Chris Chugg)!

Bev's commitment to getting her out and about certainly paid dividends this
weekend..  Congratulations.



Reserve Champion Ridden Warmblood

Jaybee Alabaster

Jaybee Alabaster fought it out with his 'stable mate' Jaybee Colleen.
Rider Tor Van Den Berge had to jump off one an on to the other
as they battled out the award for the Champion Ridden Warmblood.
It must have been a difficult decision for the judges as both horses are outstanding.

The beautiful head and lovely
'open expression' of the stallion
Jaybee Alabaster.

He was a true gentleman in defeat and
seemed very happy to have another
Jaybee horse take the prize.

Chivalry is alive and well in the equine world. 
I bet he would offer her his seat on the tram!
