28 December, 2016  Today Nungarra LuLu set off on her journey of life under saddle. She loaded onto the truck easily and reportedly travelled and unloaded well. Reports on her progress as they come to hand.
20 December, 2016  Some recent news to hand. Nungarra Simply Red tried his 'hoof' at dressage last weekend following his great success at the Australasian Show Horse Championships. Competing in the Bowral Dressage Club Members Championships, he won the Preliminary 1.2 with a fabulous score of 76.923! This was also enough to win the Young Rider Award as together 'Red' and rider Sophie O'Connell, gained the highest score of the day for a rider under 25 years of age. Another fabulous outing for this young duo.

11 December, 2016  A bit has been happening for our horses in the competition world in the last few weeks. Nungarra Furst Class had an HRCAV outing recently placing in both Level 3 tests and breaking the 75% barrier. The following weekend he fronted up again but this time for an EA Preliminary outing at Elmore, where he came 4th in the Championship with 66% and 68%. 

The recent highlight has to be Nungarra Simply Red ridden by young Phoebe O'Connell at the prestigious EA Australasian Show Horse and Rider Championships at Werribee last weekend. 'Red' and Phoebe were the Champion combination for Child's Hack over 16hh. A very exciting win for everyone. I'm told 'Red' has been enjoying a week of no work in a grassy paddock as his reward. I guess for Phoebe it was school as usual!

Nungarra Lawrence returned home yesterday after a few weeks at 'finishing school'. He passed with flying colours - video can be viewed on the Horses for Sale page. Next to be started under saddle will be Nungarra LuLu - her planned start date is just after Christmas at this stage. Looking forward to seeing her under saddle as she is a pleasure to handle and a striking young mare to look at.

18 October, 2016  News of Nungarra Furst Class (Licorish) continuing on his winning way was received on Sunday afternoon - Preliminary Reserve Champion after achieving two 2nds at Albury Dressage competition. This was the first EA competition for Licorish when ridden by his owner Kylie Calderwood. For previous EA comps he was ridden by a professional rider but ridden successfully by Kylie for a series of HRCAV competitions.
Nungarra Simply Red put in a good performance in the Dressage element of the recent Australian Interschool Equestrian Championships but missed a placing. We are looking forward to meeting up with him again in December when he is in Melbourne for the National Show horse Competition at Werribee.

28 September, 2016  Having just recently re-connected with Santana has been very rewarding. She and owner/rider, Kylie Slaughter, recently won the Queensland Amateur Showjumper of the Year. Very exciting news for her owner (who just loves her). Best wishes from  Nungarra Warmbloods for continuing success in the show jumping arena.

26 September, 2016  What an exciting day! Nungarra Simply Red, ridden by Phoebe O'Connell, was named Overall Winner Show Horse (secondary) at the Australian Interschool Equestrian Championships in Sydney today.  Huge congratulations to the team who put together such a great win. Phoebe and 'Red' front up again on Wednesday for the Dressage - wishing them another very successful day. 

4 September, 2016  How time flies when its pouring with rain for weeks on end! However things are beginning to dry a little and people are out and about with their horses.

Nungarra Furst Class was out for the first time in a number of months. He and owner/rider Kylie calderwood had a very succcessful day at Elcho Park winning the Level 3 Championship with scores of 73% and 77%. They are off to Elmore next weekend - best of luck to this fabulous partnership.

We had an exciting find last week. Many years ago we purchased a baby through the Belcam International Dispersal Sale. We named her Belcam Santana and after having her started under saddle we sold her to a young woman in NSW. Within the year we had lost contact with her and so, were unable to follow Santana's career. Facebook turned out to provide a reconnect! Having been sold on and spending a while with her new owner at Heath and Rosie Ryan's stables, Santana is now owned by Kylie Slaughter in Queensland and has begun a very successful show jumping career. Santana is lead horse on the Amateur Show Jumping Leaderboard in Queensland and I note has had a succcessful weekend at the Beaudesert Show taking out equal first place in the 1.15m Ammy Class. Her owner, Kylie, is thrilled with Santana and assures me she is a 'forever horse'. We look forward to following Santana's career and hopefully meeting up with her again soon as she now lives just around the corner from good friends - small world!  Kylie has sent us some photos so will post some here asap.

15 June, 2016  At last school reports are completed and I have a chance to update our news. Nungarra Furst Class continues on his winning way, taking out the Level 3 Championship at the Rich River Equestrian Group Dressage Jackpot at Elmore today. After a bit of showing off around the warm-up arena he managed a 1st and 2nd at his first offical HRCAV event. Needless to say his owner/rider Kylie Calderwood was delighted with the outing.

Nungarra Lawrence has now been started under saddle. At present he is home for a spell before heading back for a bit of polish. Reports of his early work are very positive, with the 'breaker' telling us he has an amazing trot and a HUGE future. He is on the market so we look forward to some lucky owner developing that future with him.

Nungarra Valentino and Nungarra Vice Regal have now been weaned. Both young boys have had some basic in-hand schooling and are a deight to handle. Enquiries about both youngster are welcome.

18 March, 2016  After a stirling effort yesterday receiving 69% to end in the top 20 in the 4YO class at Dressage with the Stars, Nungarra Furst Class when on to win the 4YO consolation round this moring with a score of 75.4%. His owner, Kylie Calderwood, said that despite the hideous weather conditions he didn't miss a beat as he and rider Justine Greer battled the wind and the rain, ploughed through puddles and worked past flapping marques. Again, huge congratulations to all concerned and thanks to Justine for riding one of our babies to such a great result.

7 March, 2016  Today we received an update on Nungarra Simply Red's exploits on the weekend. After such a successful day on Friday he didn't disappoint yesterday! 'Big Red' and his 14yo rider, Phoebe O'Connell, achieved Runner Up Child's Hack at the EA NSW Horse of the Year Show and have qualified for the Nationals at Werribee in December. They also came 3rd in the 13 - 15yo Rider Class (ridden in a snaffle bridle) and are Reserve for the NSW team at the Nationals in December. Could be another busy few days for this exciting young pair. Our heartiest congratulations to Phoebe, 'Big Red' and all who have worked so hard to achieve these exciting milestones.

4 March, 2016  Very exciting news today! Nungarra Simply Red has just been named Champion Newcomer and Preliminary Champion at the EA Horse of the Year Show in Sydney. Congratulations to all concerned. A great effort, especially as the young rider and 'Big Red' haven't been together very long. 

1 March, 2016  News today is that Nungarra Simply Red, qualified with his 14yo rider, for Young Rider last weekend and is off to the EA Horse Of the Year Show this coming weekend.
