OMG, OMG NEWS FLASH...
Royal Reine (Royal Hit) had her FINEST foal this morning at 11am. Dakota Jones & myself went out for a coffee as it was too windy for lessons. Came back and Reine just had her foal "what the"!?!?
Black Filly with 3 x white socks. She foaled at 326 days and no signs. No wax, no milk and no out of the ordinary behaviour. Ph this morning had actually gone up to 6.8. Naughty girl just like when Reine was born, Emmy did exactly the same.
Introducing Winmallee Fine Fortune... Up and drinking and very healthy strong girl.
Introducing Winmallee First Sezanne
22nd September 2016
I am very proud to introduce to you our stunning, elegant filly by Sezuan x De Niro - Winmallee First Sezanne. She was born 21st September at 8.45pm, 338 days gestation. Lovely bay filly with 4 x white stockings and a large blaze. All is well drinking and sleeping.
De Nisha is the most amazing mum and she is doing so well. Birth went like clock work and Jester Bear was helping out as usual. Could not have asked for a better foal, and she is not for sale.

A lovely but tiring show at NEC. This time it was Winmallee Ferdinand's time to shine! Ferdi is by Ampere and out of Winmallee Emerald.
What an amazing quiet yearling colt, so well behaved and could not have asked any more from this boy. Thank you again Dakota Jones for all your help. I forgot my show pants so I had to improvise and use Dakota's Black jodhpurs (lucky we are the same size!).

WINMALLEE ROYAL REINE DRESSAGE
19th June 2016
Had a lovely day at the dressage with Dakota Jones. I took Winmallee Royal Reine out to do her first ever Novice & Elementary test. Was so happy with her, the rider was not that good she was feeling a little tired and nearly forgot some of her Elementary test, we bumbled our way through it though.
We came first with a score of 62.87% which was pretty good considering I was the one to let Reine down. We scored some 8's & quite a few 7.5's.
In the Novice we came 4th 66.29%, happy with that as it was the last test after a 2.5 hour wait. I have not competed on her at dressage for a year now and only did a couple of prelim tests.
So happy with this young lady how she is going, nice to get her out back at the dressage before I stop riding her for foaling. She is in foal to "FINEST".
25th October 2016
My stunning wide load can still bring out the moves. Winmallee Royal Reine (Royal Hit) is 308 days in foal to Finest. This foal will be absolutely stunning. Not long now to see what she has been cooking. So much love for this girl.
MURRAY BRIDGE RIDING CLUB
1st August 2016
A wonderful day at Murray Bridge Riding Club.Winmallee De Vyne was on her best behaviour and did me proud. I did the show all by myself and thank you Stacey for taking some photos for me.
What a beautiful horse she is, taking everything in her stride coming home with a fist full of ribbons. This young lady tied to the float all day with no complaining.
Lots of people and horses today, so it was nice to see how she was with the rings full.
She was excellent. Looking forward to showing her for the season.
Thank you Allstars Browbands (Karen Williams) for your sponsorship.
Thank you Dakota Jones for being home when I got here to help me out with feeding.

SHC HACK HORSE OF THE YEAR 2016
23rd October 2016
What a wonderful day we had the the SHC - Hack HOTY 2016. This was Winmallee De Vyne's second hack show and she did me proud. This wonderful girl did not put a foot wrong and that is amazing for a young inexperienced horse. We had a lot of people there, tents and a lot going on.
Led Hack - 3rd out of 13 people.
Preliminary Hack - called in first out of all the horses on the circle. Unfortunately we had a few hick ups in the work out so no placing.
Owner Rider Hack - RUNNER UP and I was absolutely over the moon with this girl. Class of 15 people who have been seasoned hacks.
New Comer Hack - 6th place as the girl was extremely tired on did not want to leave the line up. That's ok, she is just a baby and learning. She was extremely tired as these events ran back to back with no breaks. This is a lot to ask a young horse to do. Well done Deva for putting so much effort in and trying so hard.
Thank you so much Dakota for helping me with all your wonderful skills. Thank you Maya for staying the night and helping.
Thank you to my sponsors Allstars Browbands (Karen Williams)
Just a fantastic day and proud of my lovely horse.
17th May 2016
One of the saddest days for me having to put this girl to sleep. Emmy came to me as a yearling and was 13 years of age. Unfortunately she has a infected lump on her larynx that we have been treating for the past 3 months. Today she took a bad turn and surgery was not an option.
She was just an amazing girl and she has given me so much joy as a riding horse/school horse and the best mum ever.
Emmy had 7 foals that were all brilliant they were:
Will never forget you Emmy and you will live on through your foals.

2nd April 2016
SVDC Championships today with Winmallee De Nisha. This is her final outing as she is now having a year off to be a mum. De Nisha is due to foal in September to have her wonderful SEZUAN foal.
Today we did 2 Prelim tests and we won them both with great scores. What a way to finish with Preliminary Champion. Now for some well deserved time off.
1st - Preliminary 1.1 - 67.50%
1st - Prelimanary 1.3 - 72.174%
Could not be happier and thank you again Dakota Jones for being my wonderful photographer and supporter.
Thank you Nicole Magoffin for all your wisdom.
UPDATE: ROYAL REINE... 232 days
6 September 2016
Jester Bear doing his duties looking after the girls. He now has to look after Royal Reine (Royal Hit) as she is now 232 days in foal to Finest. So he has De Nisha & Reine the pregnant ladies to take care of. He also gets some time to have a scratch with De Vyne (De Niro). This boy certainly spreads his love around. Every one is also in and out of weight watchers as they are all getting WAY too FAT. This is why they are in the raceway...

SHC HACKING DAY
7th August 2016
Winmallee De Vyne had her first official Hacking Day with SHC and had a dressage test. Was lovely doing both in one day as it made me realise how much I enjoy the dressage.
Looking forward to later in the year competing dressage with this lovely girl. I also realised that working all my horses, teaching and getting ready for foaling is taking its toll on my body. I have decided to back off the showing for awhile as I am not enjoying it as much as I should and getting extremely exhausted.
I am going to put my time into teaching and training. Will get back into the showing later in the season.
Thank you Dakota Jones & Jane McDonald for your support and help.
Thank you to my sponsors All Stars Browbands (Karen Williams)
