(Roundelay x Denilliquin)
Was a very fast and gutsy chestnut mare who after suffering a fractured
leg at the age of 12 came back as sound as a bell and went on to
compete for several years.
She was Layla's 2nd endurance horse and together they came 2nd in
the 1993 SA Championships only to win it and take out Best Condition
the following year.
At the age of 25 she is still being ridden around the traps by kids
and has left us with two beautiful young mares - Veloce Orlando
& Veloce Mamma Mia.
(Rannock x Chalani Anna)
Aust stock horse stallion who was a well known A Grade polo pony
with Andrew Gray aboard, would often play up to 3 chukkas in a match,
such was his stamina. Came to Endurance as an "old" horse along
side a brief show career with many champions to his credit. His
swan song at the age of 17 was a completion in 1996 SA Championships
160km. Sire of Orlando & Mia.
(Littlewood Monteego x Chrissy - by Wenceslas(Imp.)
Oout of a Stefan(Imp.) mare). Nel's paternal grandsire was Rannock
so I knew when I bought her she would have stamina and along with
the Wenceslas/Stefan influence I knew I couldn't go wrong!
Broken in as a 7 year old in December 1996 she completed her first
80 km ride in April 1997. That year she easily clocked up 800 kms,
placing 3rd in the Kuitpo 200 which was her first ride out of Novice.
The following month she won and got Best Condition at Sandy Creek
Nel went on to win the SA State Championship 160 km and finished
off the season with a fast 80km and Best Condition two weeks later.
Study and organising the SA Quilty prevented much competition in
1998 but she did me proud by carrying me through the worst conditions
possible to be the first South Aussie home and 21st Middleweight
in the infamous Mt. Pleasant Quilty. Later that year she once again
won the SA Championship and Best Condition. The end of 1998 saw
her exported to the UAE.
(Rasputin x TB mare)
Ttowering anglo gelding at 16.2 hh was like scaling a tall building
every time I mounted him !
Sourced by Polly Fletcher from Mt. Riddock Station in the Northern
Territory I co- purchased him, sight unseen, with Polly and he was
trucked South to begin his endurance training first at Wilmington
in SA's beautiful Flinders Ranges and later at Pillinda Hill, Mylor.
As a very promising 5 year old he wasn't competed heavily during
that first season, gaining his yellow log book after 4 starts. His
first ride out of Novice however was 100 km which he won easily
and was also awarded Best Condition.
The SA Championship that year was his first 160km competition where
he achieved third place in a riding time of 12:30hours.
