Congratulations to Karina & Adrian Damshke with their Arabian Warmblood Welsh gelding Deveron Man I Am, who has been taking out a few bows in the last few months.

More recently he attended the Welsh Nationals in Tatura, where he placed 2nd in his led class and the following day took out Reserve Champion Junior Gelding.

Darby looked an absolute picture, with lots of nice comments from the judges, so well done to the Darby team, we are sure to hear lots about him in the future.

                     Although Anneliese Shortt has only been the owner of "Felix" for a short time, their successes together has been
                     a sign of great things to come in the future.
                     In Anna's words,she is" the so so happy new owner of Felix and I adore him."
                     Felix and Anna started at the top!!!! by attending both the 2012 Royal Melbourne Summer Show and Barastoc and
                     also the Top Teams Trophy Championships (HRCAV).
                     Photo above shows Anna & Felix showing their teams spoils after taking out lst place in the Top Teams Showing Championships at                                                 Geelong in January 2012.  87 teams were presented with over 348 riders competing over the two day event.
                     Photo at right taken at Barastoc 2012 where they placed 2nd or 3rd in all five hotly contested HRCAV ridden events.  Felix also won and                                      placed at the Royal Melbourne Summer Show under saddle.
                     Well done to Anna and Felix! Certainly a great partnership to watch out for.

Bred by International Horse Breeders, IHB Denmark a 3yo Arabian Warmblood,  is now in the ownership of Jessica Verheij of SA.

Recently at their first show Denmark won Champion Open Breed Exhibit at the Morphett Vale All Breeds Show.

Jessica's initial intentions were to focus on eventing, but is planning on taking him to Young Horse Qualifiers that will hopefully gain them entry to Dressage With the Stars.  When he is old enough Jessica plans to start his showjumping and eventing career, which is Jessica's forte.

We wish Jessica well for the future with her beautiful young star.

The first of our Arabian Warmblood/Welsh Cob ponies, the yearling colt, Deveron Man I Am, made his showring debut in great style by taking out Supreme Champion Pony of Show (Open) at the 2011 Yarram Agricultural Show, one of Victoria's larger Ag Shows.

Darby, as he is known at home, is owned by Karina and Adrian Damschke and was purchased while still on his dam.

Karina and Adrian were thrilled  with his win and have a number of shows lined up for him including the 2012 Melbourne Summer Royal.

Congratulations guys, a wonderful start to Darbys career.

Tracey Hotker also had an amazing show over in the West at the 2011 Perth Royal Show, with her 3yo Arabian Warmblood gelding, Deveron Maggistrate.  Maggistrate who is by Deveron Di Maggio, took out the Champion Combined Warmblood (same as Supreme) after winning the Warmblood Gelding 3y & under and Best Presented Warmblood.

Well respected judge, Roger Fitzhardinge was very impressed with Maggistrate, commenting on his temperament, trainability and cadence............and he was looking for a new horse !

Well done Tracey, you have earned it.
What Tracey (and Gav) have to say about Maggistrate :

"What a boy! Deveron Maggistrate (aka Junior)
has met all my expectations - tall, dark and
handsome with a real show presence, he
continues to impress with his trainability,
temperament and magnificent movement.
Junior really is the complete package!

Many thanks to Paula & Niels Hoffmann-
Madsen of Deveron Stud for producing such
a wonderful foal. They don't dilute their
breeding lines and it shows.  Junior is born
to show - Mr Casual when prepping and
waiting to go on - then comes alive when it is
his time to shine - the ultimate professional.

Before purchasing from Paula and Niels, I
researched studs across Australia and my
due diligence brought me to Deveron Stud. 
The trip was worth it.  With more than 30
years experience and an emphasis on quality over quantity they offered exactly what I was looking for.  Their professional, yet friendly, relaxed and always helpful manner is reflected in the stock they produce.  Temperament is not overlooked when considering breeding lines which I think gives then an edge over some competitors as their foals have strengths in all areas and Junior is no exception.

I will be back to Deveron Stud to buy more!"

Proudly owned by Tracey Hotker. Dash has come such a long way from the days when his future was in question.

With time, care, treatment, persistence and patience Tracey has done such an amazing job with Dash that he is soon to have his first outing under saddle. Well done Tracey, you are to be commended on your all out efforts to get this boy up and going and I know Dash will appreciate all you have done to bring him back to the beautiful boy he is and also the boy that you love so much.  One of the photos shows Dash at the 2013 Perth Royal where he placed in a strong class of Derivative Geldings. Well done Tracey!
LAILARNI SHANTOOZIE..........Kim Harvey sends news of the beautiful Toozie, who is not only a super talented girl, but has the most amazing disposition to boot.  Bred and owned by Kellie James, this is one of Di Maggio's first progeny under saddle and what a great ambassadoress she has been.  After a very successful show career both in halter and under saddle Toozie is now stepping out in the dressage arena with Kim Harvey, winning and placing at numerous comps in Q'ld and NSW.

Toozie has also been paired with a young Para rider who is on the National Future Para Squad.

Toozie also turned her hand to the costume theme taking out Grand Champion Costume at the RASDEG Twilight Dressage Day.

In Kim's own words "she is the most wonderful horse I have ever had the pleasure of riding.......I have never had a horse who can absorb so much information and not blow up, she would learn all day if I let her.....she is very special".

Rosie Grove and Deveron Maggnetic enjoyed a wonderful showing at the Aust Nat Arabian Champ held at Werribee....placing in nearly every event entered, after only being in Rosie's ownership for a matter of weeks.  Magg worked so well for Rosie during the entire show, which was only his 4th ever show......He was a crowd favourite and received many applauses from the enthusiastic crowd.  Competition was very strong in many events..........biggest congratulations to Rosie on her wonderful presentation of Magg and making it all look so easy.  Congratulations also to Robert Hammond, Maggs' previous owner who took him from a gangly yearling to where he is today.

Owner, Anneliese Shortt owner of the successful dressage horse Avella Di Marcello, reports of an amazing lesson with dressage legend, Heath Ryan.

Heath's comments on Felix, as he is known, were nothing short of astonishing, He was so taken by Felix, that he insisted on bringing photos of Di Maggio up on FB, and wanted to know if all his offspring had similar temperaments and trainability...Heath stated that Felix was a flying change machine, and with a few taps Felix was starting piaffe movements (never tried before)........ Heath couldn't believe the power that he had there waiting to be tapped into.

At the end of the lesson Heath said that he saw a lot of horses in his clinics and that rarely one popped up where he thought "wow".  Heath stated that Felix had the "wow" that he loves in a horse and that if Anneliese wanted to go all the way that this is the horse to take me there!!

Well done to Anneliese and Felix and I am sure we will be seeing them out competing FEI level tests before too long.

Recently at their first ridden show, Dash and Jo achieved a 2nd and a 4th place in the dressage arena and a 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the Show Hunter classes.

Congratulations to Jo and Dash on these wonderful results after only being together for such a short and especially so when Dash's future had been in doubt as to whether he would ever be a saddle horse.
