ROYAL ADELAIDE BREED SHOW 2015
28th March 2015
What a wonderful day at the ROYAL ADELAIDE BREED SHOW 2015.
Great success for the WINMALLEE TEAM and extremely well behaved horses all day.
Very exhausted horses and owner. Having 3 horses to run out through many events and championships, riding Reine in all her events then driving home (no idea how I did it).
Total Ribbons for the day:
2 x SUPREME CHAMPIONS
3 x CHAMPIONS
5 x Reserve Champions.
11 x 1st Place
4 x 2nd Place
Winmallee De Nisha (De Niro) - SUPREME CHAMPION JUNIOR WB
Winmallee Royal Reine (Royal Hit) - SUPREME CHAMPION RIDDEN WB
Winmallee Ferdenand (Ampere) - RESERVE CHAMPION YEARLING & UN
A huge thanks to my wonderful strappers Tracey Hillier & Karen Hague. A special thanks to Karen Hague for leading out Winmallee Emerald while I led her 6 month foal Winmallee Ferdinand.
Thank you to my wonderful husband (Bear Cave) for driving the other float and taking all the lovely photos and holding horses during the day.
Thank you Wendy Kennedy for letting me borrow your husband to hold horses.
I am very proud of my horses all doing so well at this tour. There were two standout horses that did me so proud. Breeding an excellent warmblood is not easy, breeding then training/breaking them in as well is a big job. For 10 years now I have started with nothing and built myself up to getting great results Nationally.
For a small warmblood breeder and trainer, we are making our stamp on Australia.
Winmallee Royal Reine
Winmallee Royal Reineexcelled herself again in both the led and ridden classes. She is now a 4 year old and up with the senior horses so it is a touch challenging in the ridden classes now as she is young and inexperienced.
Reine won ALL her led classes and came reserve champion in all of them. In her ridden classes she came home with an even amount of First & Second places, Champion and Reserve Champion placings.
Winmallee De Nisha
This lovely De Niro mare excelled herself at the show today. She won all her classes but was only reserve champion for her broad ribbons. The only reason why is unfortunately she has terrible greasy heel at the moment due to the hot humid weather. This has caused swelling in the front off fore.
We had lovely comments by both judges about how this is the best horse I have ever bred. Just STUNNING, saying she has a big future and she is just all quality. Unfortunately because it is a lead class they were unable to place her higher.
Winmallee De Vyne (De Niro), this was her first show and what a very well behaved yearling this girl was.
1st - Led Yearling
2nd - Led Show Hack
2nd - Led Open horse under 3 yrs.
It was so nice to be able to ride the whole show in a snaffle bridle. This girl is advancing so well now. She has been a little tricky but time and a loving heart has paid off. Looking forward to the 4 year old Young Horse Dressage Championships on the weekend.
Thank you Tammy Klitscher for the lovely photo.

PRECIOUS BONDING MOMENT
15th April 2015
Well this is where the bond started with Ferdinand. He was 10 minutes old and this is where he wanted to be. Mum exhausted and lying down and he was lying on my lap.

"Hi Mandy, Athena had her second dressage comp today in gale-force winds, I have never ridden in such bad weather! She was an absolute star!! So love this mare, she looked after me so well and to top it off we won both our tests with a 67 and 69!!
Couldn't be happier considering she has had quite a few weeks off up until last week".
This girl was owned by Skye Haagmans and was also used as a school horse at Winmallee Classical Riding & Warmbloods. A very loved mare by many.

ACE ASSESSMENTS AT WINMALLEE - 20th January 2015
Winmallee Fellini and Winmallee Ferdinand were both assessed and scored amazingly.
Both went PREMIUM FOALS with a score of 79%. Very happy with this result as we have not bred with Ampere (IMP Dutch Warmblood) before. Both the foals were very well behaved but were a little too quiet so did not show off the their full potential. Winmallee Fellini is for sale, please contact me for more information. Both foals are 3 months old.
Winmallee Classical Riding & Warmbloods
5 x Pairs (set of 4) large floating boots
Girths - different sizes
Lots of Reins - Snaffle plain, Snaffle with rubber inside, Curbs.
Bits - Different types & sizes
We had a fantastic day at the AWHA Tour Assessments. I managed to plait them all up and I have no idea how I did that. The horses were extremely well behaved and many great comments on how well they were all trained and presented. Thank you Jane McDonald for all the lovely photos which I will share shortly. Thank you Karen Hague & Kerry Tripodi for all your help.
Winmallee Fellini was the super star with a score of 86.96%
Winmallee Royal Reine excelled her self in the led 84.64%
Winmallee Royal Reine smashed the ridden with 85.50%
Winmallee Ferdinand had his problem of being too chilled 81.78%
Winmallee De Nisha scored extremely well in conformation, but still was not moving to her best because of the greasy heal 82.32%
Winmallee De Vyne scored well for a yearling 82.50%
Winmallee Royal Reine absolutely excelled herself with:
- Highest scoring led Studbook Warmblood in SA - 84%
- Highest scoring ridden Studbook Warmblood in SA - 84.64%
- Highest scoring ridden Open Warmblood in SA - 85.50%
These scores just make me so proud of my warmblood breeding and the long hard road I have taken to get there. Many years of heartache and happiness and starting from absolute scratch. I never had the money to buy a warmblood mare to breed or compete with so I started with OTT Thoroughbreds to breed and ride. Many people told me that breeding with TB's would not give me quality WB's. Well I have proven that if you use quality TB mares you can breed amazing quality horses.
Many people have given me grief about riding OTT's and the way I train my horses but I just kept going and following my heart. Proof is in the pudding as they say and now I am enjoying the rewards of my hard work.
Thank you again Jane McDonald for all the lovely photos. Thank you to all the people who have helped me through especially Lisa Hosking, Wendy Hosking & Dakota Jones.
Exhausting day but loads of fun!
A Big Thank You
A big thank you to Dakota & Anushka for all your help at the show. You guys made it a lovely day and I could not have done it without you.
Go team Winmallee!!!
Winmallee Furst Class
and Winmallee Royal Rufino
A huge congratulations to Lisa Hosking who owns Winmallee Furst Class and Winmallee Royal Rufino. These wonderful young horses won all their classes as well and took out champions.
So lovely to see the Winmallee horses doing so well out in the show/breed ring.
Then at 6 months old at the Royal Adelaide Breed Show we ended in the same position. He was just a little large to lie on my lap.
This boy certainly has my heart.
