Meet the Team
Royman | 2006 OTTB
My favourite child.
Raced, evented, show jumped. Suffered a severe ligament injury in 2016, and spent the next three years undertaking groundwork for rehabilitation. Remounted in 2019, and has been in classical dressage since.
Rubato | 2002 OTTB
Raced, evented, show jumped. Used as part of my riding school, until I felt his body wasn't coping. X-rays showed arthritis of the cannon bone and bi-lateral navicular. Retired in 2014. Brought back into rehabilitation work in 2019, and has been in classical dressage since.
Carinda Boy | Smokin Joe | 2005 OTTB
Raced and show jumped. In 2014, won an Australian national showjumping title. In 2017, his performance started degrading and by 2019 we stopped competing. In classical dressage and rehabilitation work since.
He continues to degrade. He is checked by the vet each month to track his soundness and neurologic issues. He will be kept comfortable and happy in this loving home until it is his time.
Canyonleigh Rhythm Commander | 1996 American Saddlebred
The old man of our stables! Broken and gelded at 7 yrs, then sent straight from the stud to me. He has A-symmetric hind hips, a severed then shortened hind tendon sheath and some arthritis. He's 27 years young, and still in classical dressage.
Jarbar | 1997 OTTB
One of my oldest teachers and first competitors. Trialled at 2 yrs, but never raced. He went straight from the track to a local riding school, and was ridden by hundreds. When the school closed, I bought him. He's now on permanent lease, and lives out his days on a 200+ acre property, with friends and daily dam access (he always loved swimming)! A well deserved retirement.
2008 Black Labrador
Welcomer of all farm visitors, world's best vacuum cleaner.
2014 Jack Russell
Experienced hunter, world's worst catcher.
2019 Bull Arab
Ball enthusiast, bringer of no balls.
