"Rocky" is the missing link in our breeding program. He brings with his correct conformation, lovely movement and incredible gentle nature, his rare height. At a genuine 16.1hh, he is awe inspiring in the flesh and to know him is to love him.
Soon after his arrival here, after covering a few mares early in the breeding season, he was sent to Paul Austin and Mark Lilley from Paul Austin Equitation to commence his saddle training. After just 7 weeks with them, in his first class at his first show, he won 2013 Horse Of The Year Purebred Newcomer. After this show, he did a couple of Agricultural shows before coming home to complete the breeding season.
In early January, he returned to Mark and Paul and in just a few weeks, competed at the prestigious East Coast Arabian Championships. We were over the moon with his results, he was sashed Champion Hunter Stallion, Reserve Champion Bridle Path Hack, Top 5 Arabian Stallion under saddle and Top 5 in the hotly contested East Coast Cup. He stood calmly in mixed company in the line ups and impressed everyone with his incredibly quiet and willing nature. We are so very proud of him.
"Rocky" has successfully completed his show ring adventure taking out not one but TWO AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS. He won Australian Champion Hunter
Australian Champion Bridle Path Hack Stallion over 15hh
He then went on to take out a Top Ten in his stallion under saddle class at the end of a long day.
As we expected he tried his heart out and was an absolute gentleman and to say that we are pleased with his results are an understatement.
"Rocky" is proving to be a consistent producer of top quality, pretty, sound and sane babies to a variety of mares.
