2015 News May/June/July
We have had a wonderful show season with our challenge team this year.
Two of our horses Imprint and Opal competed at Middlemount and Monto Challenges for nice runs in both the wet and dry work, but not quite enough to make the finals.
At Grass Hut Campdraft our champion mare Just Opal with Nathan Wilson placed 2nd over all in the Under five Challenge, and 5th in the futurity Campdraft, and our young stallion Royalle Imprint placed second in the futurity draft.
We then went onto Cloncurry Challenge, where Royalle Imprint ran a lovely dry work run scoring a 90 under one judge, to finish in 11th position in the dry work, unfortunately a unlucky cow meant we didn’t make the final this year.
Some of our 2014 foals made their way to their new homes last month, we look forward to seeing these babies do well with their new owners.

2015 Update March
Well we have kicked off the year with a bang, with our gorgeous four year old filly Mytee In Lace taking out 2nd in the Novice draft at Cooyar last weekend with Nathan Wilson. Cougar and Nathan are competing regularly from now on, and our paint filly Just Opal is about to debute on her campdraft and challenge career as well.
We have also said goodbye to some of our horses who have been sold to their excited new owners, Resolved to Georgina, Ashgrove Stormy Acres to Mel, Ashgrove Whisper to Emma, Ashgrove Subtle In Rouge to Robbin, Sunline Valentine to Ace, and Ashgrove Rendition to Michael. Congratulations to all these new owners of these fabulous horses!
We also welcomed some new horses to our stud over the past 8 months, including adding 3 new stallions to our line up, Chestnut TB Stallion “Flash Expectations”, Paint Colt “LNJ Easy Lookin Cash” and Appaloosa Colt “Savannah Mighty Smokey. All these stallions offer the pinocle in performance breeding, type and temperament. We look forward to their contribution to the stud in the coming years. They each have their own stallion pages, so please look under “stallions” to see their information.
Foaling season has come and gone, with Royalle Imprints first crop of foals exceeding all expectations, check them out on the 2014 foals page. Some of these lovely babies are for sale, see our Sale page for more details, but get in quick as they are selling FAST! Two colts by Imprint have already been sold as future stud prospects.
Below are some photos of our horses over the past 6 months, including our new additions.
