31 December, 2015 Some more great news of our Nungarra young ones. Nungarra Bonfire (previously Nungarra Realm and affectionately known as Jules) won Reserve Champion Level 3 at the recent Dressage Festival HRCAV competition. She gained 69% and 79% for her two tests, coming second (2nd) in both. Great work Tracy and Jules. Kylie took Nungarra Fine Licorish to AEBC recently when Warwick McLean was home. After a 40 minute workout Warwick's comments were very positive and the horse took all the activity of the indoor arena in his stride. Kylie plans to take Licorish to a clinic at the end of January and then enter him for his first EA competition on the weekend of the 6th & 7th of February at Werribee. He is to compete under the name Nungarra Furst Class. Best wishes for a successful outing to this budding partnership.

25 December, 2015  Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year to everyone. 

7 December, 2015  Deland has finally given birth to a bay colt foal which has two white stockings on his back legs and the Versace trademark of white face markings. De has traditionally alternated between a filly and a colt foal so this colt was not unexpected. Having just turned 17, we have decided to retire Deland from breeding so this boy is her last foal. She will be living out her days in our big front paddock. 

23 November, 2015 Deland is now oficially 2 weeks overdue so we are still waitng on our next foal (by Versace). Nothing new though, she is at least 2 weeks over every year so we just have to be patient.

On the competiton front there is more great news about Nungarra Bonfire. She had her firstcompetition at Werribee a couple of weeks ago and placed 5th in the Preliminary class. The following weekend she competed at Level 3 in an Open HRCAV/Pony Club competition and took out the Championship by winning both tests with scores of 68.4% and 76.04%. Congratulations to Tracy Lee and Bonfire.

25 October, 2015  Very exciting news. In her first ever competition Nungarra Bonfire(previously Nungarra Realm) owned by Tracy Lee, had a very successful day winning Reserve Preliminary Championat the Juravon Spring Dressage Championships with scores of 73% and 74% (2nd in both tests) from a field of 27! Tracy said, "I am pretty wrapped. She was a darling and worth all the spoiling she gets.'

Our young colt born last month has been named - Nungarra Valentino. He is an elegant young man with serious good looks!

23 September, 2015  The first Nungarra foal for the season was born in the wee small hours of this morning - a very attractive chestnut colt by Versace out of our mare Belcam Princess Black Pearl. Photos to be loaded onto the Foal Stock page as soon as they are available. 

Nungarra Royal Order has been home for around 10 days and is enjoying a well earned rest after all the hard work he has put in put over the past couple of months. 

Nungarra Fine Licorish is to be registered with EA and is being prepared to make his debut in the dressage arena. Can't wait to this young man out and about. Kylie is doing great work with him and is constantly impressed by his willingness and calm nature.

22August, 2015  'Big Roy' (Nungarra Royal Order) had his first outing today, attending rally at JurAvon Park in Victoria. He took the afternoon in his stride being exposed to the outdoor areas and ridden for the rally in the in-door arena. He was one of two horses in the session and despite dogs barking, people coming and going and the other horse working around him, he kept his cool and did as he was asked. The only thing that really took his interest was that other horse that appeared by his side every so often - yes there were mirrors! The coach for the day made the comment that for a big horse in a relatively small space he was very well balanced, particularly at the canter.

10 August, 2015  How the months disappear! It is now about 6 weeks since Nungarra Iced VoVo left Nungarra for NSW. Pleasingly she arrived safely and her new owners are delighted to have her with them. On the same day Nungarra Royal Order (Big Roy) was loaded onto the truck to head off to start his life under saddle. He has had lots of road and hill work and is developing well. The person training him says he has a great mind and is very willingly. She also commented on his huge canter! 

All foals are weaned and we are now gearing up for the next crop. The cycle passes so quickly!

News of Nungarra Capriole is that he is competing in Queensland on the show jumping circuit and his owner is delighted with him. Hopefully we'll have a photo of him in action on the website very soon.

Nungarra Realm  (Big Roy's full sister) is to be registered with EA so we are keenly awaiting some competition results. Tracy says she is a gem.

23 April, 2015  We are delighted to announce the sale of Nungarra Iced VoVo. She has been purchased by Sydneysiders who are planning a move to Central Victoria in the next few months, so she will be living nearby. We believe they plan to develop her as a competition horse over the coming years. Very best wishes to VoVo and her new owners for a great journey together.

27 January, 2015  We were visited by the ACE assessment team at the early hour of 7.30 this morning. It was a very windy and rather chilly morning. We presented four (4) horses and were delighted to receive PREMIUM awards for Nungarra Iced VoVo (Versace) , Nungarra Verily  (Versace) and the now 2yo, Nungarra Lawrence (Furst Love). Though he did not receive an award, the assessor comment stated that Nungarra Jack Spang (00Seven) has 'good over-tracking walk, trot; canter elastic and uphill'. 

7 January, 2015  Andrea has sent us a few photos of Nungarra Royal Ruby at her first session with Manolo (see SOLD page). He commented that 'she is a very sensible young horse'. We'll be keen to see how she develops under Manolo's guiding hand. She certainly looks well in the pictures Andrea sent us.

I also note that Tracy is enjoying Jules (Realm) who has recently turned 5yo. I hope to have a picture on the SOLD page asap.

1 January, 2015  Happy New Year to everyone. May the year be one of happiness and successes.
