Lake Eyre Cougar

Cougar was purchased from Malcolm Mitchell (originally from Muloorina Station now at Eden Valley in SA) and has proven to be more than just a quiet riding horse. A young horse that turned from ugly duckling into a swan and has taken owner Amanda Young from beginner to experienced rider in a short period of time. He has proven to be a beautiful show horse with all the flair that a great competition horse has, precocious at times but has a huge personality that you cannot help but like and he is willing to please, as long as you feed him carrots!

Cougar has also won many high point awards, including the Rannock Overall ASHS SA Central Branch highpoint trophy and High Point Gelding among others.

Nevafail Trinity is the young mare by open winning Campdraft Stallion, Cadman - HSH who is by the famous Hazelwood Conman - HSH, this little mare has the working bloodlines that we favour, with a softness and natural cowiness about her, she is a sweetie to handle and work with and is an asset to our stud.  She brings in the working type that we look for and we hope to get a number of foals from this line.

We look forward to breeding from her in the near future to another well know ASH bloodline.

Sunnyriver Raven - HSH

Good things come in small packages.. and Raven is a horse that loves to do a job. With breeding back to the famous Ophir ASH Stud, Raven has been broken in and continued training; this little guy keeps surprising us with his ability. The future for him will be as a working horse.

Glen Lee Rivoli Swallow - HSH

Swallow commenced her show career as a yearling and worked her way through the ranks in the ASH ring both in SA and Interstate. With success at both the Royal, State and Branch level winning many supreme and champion ribbons and prizes along the way. A proven brood mare, that has as a unique personality and is happiest when mustering cattle and being a mum.

Boganvilla Rivoli Venus - Vale

The second of our brood mares originally purchased from David and Tracey Heinrich, in Temora NSW. A shoulder injury as a foal has prevented her from being ridden, albeit she was been broken in, but is better suited to being a brood mare. A lovely natured horse, who has proven to put a nice foal on the ground with a super temperament to match.

Super Moment - Vale

Super Moment aka “Barrelly” was a surprise birthday present, that was turned from ex-race horse into a fabulous show hack and then classified as an Australian Stock Horse. Albeit a bit on the tall side for the ASH ring, he could still wow them in the hack and stock horse arena. A big moving horse with a generous and lovely personality, who would give you his all and in turn, won countless led and ridden ribbons.

Interlude - Vale

Originally a racehorse and then a show hack, Interlude was purchased from Gwen Noblett initially as a show hack and after classification also became a registered Australian Stock Horse. This is the girl that started it all for me in the ASH arena. Interlude or Holly as she was affectionately known, was my first success in the ASH show ring, as well as being an accomplished hack.
