Jake had a nice break after Melbourne 3DE and has come back booming and in tip top shape to win the CIC 3*** at Wooroloo 3DE last weekend! What a wonderful horse he is, we are over the moon with how well he has stepped up to this level and it seems the sky is the limit for this partnership!
After a postponed show due to excessive rainfall, the Swan River August show was fantastic the following day with great conditions, a relaxed vibe and exciting results by our team! Our baby of the team Tribute did two beautiful relaxed rounds in the 95cm and 105m scoring her first ribbon! Fly was keen to take the blue ribbon winning the 1.25m with a speedy jump off and Emma placed 4th in the Young Rider on Lucy a fantastic start for this very new partnership!
It is with a heavy heart that we advertise the beautiful Diamond B Catapulte FOR SALE.
Possum has been a much-loved part of the family for many years now and after lots of consideration we have made the decision to find her a new family whom she can provide many more years of enjoyment to. Possum is an 11yr old mare by the very successful stallion Conquistador bred by Helen Chugg at Diamond B Farm.
She has all the traits you look for in the perfect junior/young rider or amateur mount. She has a beautiful style over a fence and is both careful and brave. Possum and Emma have had huge success together up to mini prix/1.35m level.
This mare has an exceptional heart and willingness to please her rider and is a lovely horse to have in the stables.
She will only go to the best of homes.
Our showjumping team is in top form right now and feeling prepped for the upcoming championship competitions.
WASJA was a very relaxed day with just Fly and Possum at the show bringing back a 3rd in the young rider and a 5th in the 1.35m.
It was full speed ahead at Swan River with both Sarah and Emma on the committee. Regardless of our busy schedule we were stoked with the horses, Lucy 3rd and Fly 4th in the 1.25m, Possum 2nd in the U25 Young Rider and Fly 4th in the 1.30m. Our next event will again be Swan River in 2 weeks time and we are looking forward to it!
Hard not to love this mare who gives 110% every time she steps in the ring – Lafayette Runner Up in the 7-yr-old at the SRSJC Young Horse Championships! Future is looking bright for this pair.
Wow what a fantastic end to Melbourne 3DE for Here To Stay and Belinda! Jake was fantastic in his first CCI3*. He is relatively green at this level but just said YES to everything on the XC & made it feel easy! He pulled up a million bucks the next day & jumped a lovely SJ round to gain his MER qualification placing 10th overall. There are too many people to mention but a special shoutout to Belinda’s fabulous sponsors Bates Saddles, 4CYTE, Horseland Bunbury, Southern Stars Saddlery!

We are really happy with our jumping team with a great start to the season! SRSJC was a wet weekend but none the less the horses all jumped fantastic, Possum starting back in top form with placings in all her starts and 5th in the Young Rider. Fly and Lucy were also in the money placing in the Bronze Series class.
All horses followed up their great form at Busselton with Fly setting the speedy precedent in the Silver Series to place 3rd and Possum 2nd in the Young Rider. Lucy didn’t touch a pole all weekend placing in the 1.25m and stepping up into the silver on the Sunday double clear!
Next up Horseland Young Showjumping Championship!
