Ballarat HT May 2024


Cold morning starts were totally forgiven at Ballarat Horse Trials last week when they were followed by beautiful sunny days! In the CCI4star both Wimborne Conjuror and Santoro had a few fizzy moments in the dressage on Saturday. On the whole they both jumped well overall despite some rails on both horses and Sammy taking out a frangible pin during his cross-country round – they finished in 5th and 6th place. Big thanks to our sponsors BetaVet Australia who also came on baord and sponsored this class at the event! The star of the event was the catch ride Tulara Baltango, [...]

Wandin CCI 2024


Santoro and Wimborne Conjuror looking fabulous at Wandin CCI! They jumped clear around the cross country and both ended up in the placings! All the while I was feeling safe and comfortable in my One K helmet, complete with the lastest MIPS technology, from EQ Saddlery. These boys are heading to Ballarat next in the 4star class, as part of their preparation for Melbourne International 3 Day Event in June! Photo credit Jessica Lee

Wimborne Caitlin


Wimborne Caitlin was bred by Wimborne Park stud in 2017, and Sam purchased her directly from there in September 2020 when she was just turning 3. Caitlin is full sister to the 4star Wimborne Conjuror. At the time of her purchase Victoria was in the grip of Covid lockdowns but Sam was convinced this filly has what it takes to go all the way to the top. Since then Caitlin has had a combination of training and spells to allow her to grow and mature. In 2022 Caitlin had some off property experiences, including her first taste of competition at EvA80 [...]
