On 28th August Knights Jugaby had his second dressage outing for the year at the Dungog Dressage Club competition held at Stroud Showground. Placing 1st and 2nd in his two tests, he scored 8 for his paces. Judge, Christine Iwaszkiewicz, remarked that Jugaby was "a beautifully rhythmical horse with a great deal of promise".


Our mares have started foaling their Knights Jugaby and Montcalm Luke offspring and we are delighted with our new arrivals. This is the time to come and select your next champion!

Congratulations to young Taylor McLelland owner and rider of Silverthorn Sniper the 3-year-old brown gelding (full brother to Carbine) who are making their mark in the dressage arena. They had success at Alexander Park on August 6, doing two tests, gaining a first in a preparatory test and a third in a preliminary test - a great result.

Keep up the good work Melissa Payne and Silverthorn Royal Astra - Melissa attended an interschool comp at Scone coming 3rd in her preliminary 1.2 dressage test (20 competitors). They won reserve rider 14 years at Bouddi Interclub Day and at Somersby Dressage Club came third in junior 1.1 and 5th in junior novice 2.1. In July Melissa won the pony club mount in her age group and rider class and placed in some sporting events at Mangrove Interclub day. - Well done Melissa.

At the Cooranbong Interclub day we were delighted to hear that the two Silverthorn geldings, Montane (owned and ridden by Mikayla Scott) and Royal Astra (owned and ridden by Melissa Payne) were prominent in the placings.

Mikayla and Montane won reserve champion for 12 years rider, and Melissa and Royal Astra won champion for 14 years rider.
