It always gives us great pleasure when we receive news of Silverthorn horses performing well for their various owners – in most cases young people – who are putting in the hard yards, and bringing forth wonderful results.
Silverthorn Elliette – (Montcalm Luke x Six S Stud Charity) – full sister to Prince of Wales Trophy winner Silverthorn My Girl. After being successfully shown as a yearling and two-year old on our show team, this mare was purchased by the Strelitz Family as a three-year-old and campaigned successfully in the campdraft arena by Gavin Strelitz. Young Laura has now commenced Elliette’s show career with some spectacular successes, both in the youth and open rings, and will be competing with the Silverthorn team at Sydney Royal Show 2015 on this mare.
Silverthorn Wills – (Waikon Park Coolabah x Six S Stud Charity) – From the same wonderful producing mare as My Girl, Elliette, St Jude, Danny Boy, Danni Girl, Annika Jane and Sweet Charity. Jade Fangmeier is a very consistent and successful competitor with this horse and continues to bring credit and kudos to Silverthorn with her outstanding performances both in the youth and open rings. Pictured here at 2014 Brisbane Royal Show.
Silverthorn Seeker – (Waikon Park Coolabah x Silverthorn Invergordon) – This seven-year-old brown gelding and his young owner Skye Maytom just keep getting better and better and are now serious contenders. They are appearing in the winners’ line-ups more and more frequently and are definitely ones to watch out for.
Silverthorn Oakwood – (Crillee Amarillo Oak x Barsham Sunlast) – Another outstanding young horse by “Freckles”. Campaigned with great success by our trainee Ashley Whiting and now in the ownership of the Doggett Family. “Woody” is pictured here in the Working 4 years and Under class at Sydney Royal Show 2014.
Silverthorn Oaks Adair – (Crillee Amarillo Oak x Silverthorn Eclipse) – Lovely chestnut three-year-old gelding from one of our best producing and performed mares. Joe Lawrence liked this gelding as a foal and purchased him as a yearling. Now three-years-old, broken-in and trained by Joe, Adair is excelling in the show ring and we look forward to watching his progress with interest.
Silverthorn Sheoak – (Crillee Amarillo Oak x Silverthorn Madalyn) – Exquisite chestnut three-year-old filly from another great producing and performed mare – full sister to Eclipse mentioned above. This filly practically broke herself in – so talented and willing to learn – it was hard to part with her when the time came for her to be sold. Holly Clayden is now her owner and we look forward to great things to come with this combination.
Silverthorn Smoke and Mirrors – (St Ronan Abdul Smoke x Silverthorn Madalyn) – Imposing black four-year-old gelding – another beauty from the abovementioned mare Madalyn. Sophie Babic purchased Smoke as a yearling and is now enjoying success in the show ring. Sophie is a member of the Double Dan Horsemanship team and Smoke is starting to be used in some of their routines.
Silverthorn Sugar Glider – (Waikon Park Coolabah x Barsham Sunrising) – Five-year-old brown mare, initially started, trained and successfully shown by Joe Lawrence – now owned and campaigned by Vanessa Taylor.
Silverthorn Newsflash (St Ronan Abdul Smoke x Riverway Marielle) – a very versatile gelding, always in the ribbons, owned and ridden by Brooke Joyner.
Silverthorn Cattle Call (JR Cattle Hand x Scotts Creek Bauble) – purchased by the Yeo Family for daughter Natasha as a back-up horse, has found himself as their number one – his kind and willing nature ever ready to please his rider Tash.
