2009: due to the birth of our 2nd son Will, we only attended two shows.
- A Spring Affair Show: 2nd and RESERVE CHAMPION a/wb for Midnight Essence of Shahbria (holly), 2nd Anglo arabian gelding for Shahbria Amaretto (Ollie, owned by S. Neve).
- TOTR - Shahbria Amaretto - 1st Anglo Arabian Gelding 2& 3 yrs. Sadly Holly did not make it into the ring, pulling a shoulder muscle during the trot in! Thanks to Christian Rebsdorf for her awesome preparation, she looked wonderful :) .
2010: All Arabian Summer Show - A team effort with the half-sisters Bria & Holly going 1st, 2nd in the A/wb class, and Bria taking home the Res. Champ A/wb to a much older horse! A 1st in the dam's progeny class for their mother, Annecy Park Bonita (Benito IMP). Penny safely carried Ivy Neve around for her classes, placing in both - a great effort for their first show!
TRAKEHNER VERBAND TOUR - Holly was 3rd nationally on 74% for 2yo fillies. See more here!
Pan Pacific Arabian Showcase - a 3rd (Top 5) for Holly.
Arabian Challenge Show - 2 x 1sts, a 5th, and a 3rd for Holly :) So happy with her presentation and performance - Thanks to Christian for doing much of the prep work! Great to have Bria and Holly take out the mare progeny class!
Callide Valley Ag Show - Penny 1st, and Res. Champion pony!
MACKAY A CLASS SHOW - Holly was a STAR and took out many 1st, CHAMPION A/WB, and SUPREME DERIVATIVE !! Pics below, we are the cover shot!
TOTR 2010: Both girls did us proud amongst some top quality horses; Aurelia of Shahbria and Midnight Essence of Shahbria strut their stuff for the last arabian show of the year!!
2011: Summer Show - Holly placed 2nd in a very strong line up of arabian wb fillies - Congratulations to ABSOLUT stud's filly EBL Quiver winning the class!
Toowoomba Royal - with limited preparation Holly once again placed well (3rd) in an open quality class. Congratulations to our clients purebred arabian gelding, winning his led class and 2nd in his first ever show under saddle! Well done Ash and Natasha!
2011 - Gala show - Shahbria Fleur Eyse behaved impeccably for her first ever outing, being the youngest by far in her class and 6 weeks out of weaning, she was Top 5 (3rd) junior anglo. Holly won her class, and again showed why she's so successful in hand. The weather was rather dismal though! Fluer will be our 2013 showgirl now that she's had some time out to mature.
