show. Many thanks to Jenni Fairweather for the great job
she is doing.
Warrawee Merceedes took out the Open Warmblood
Gelding Championship – congratulations to his proud owner Kim
Drobidko. Kim reports – I broke him in over
Christmas and he was an absolute gentleman – with only 5 rides
he was walk, trot and cantering on both leads – my instructor
could not believe it!!!
Merceedes’ dam the anglo mare Warrawee Shee’s
Afire (Flame) from our fabulous Adronica was exported to New
Zealand and probably the news is travelling around there also
via her owner Sacha Rowson. Flame has foaled a lovely
colt foal in NZ by Sacha’s Trakener stallion.

The Arabian Warmblood mare Warrawee Veneetia
took her time travelling during the EI from Victoria to Cairns
– five months to the day. She was broken to saddle
before she left and since arrival has not put a foot wrong in
her ridden work including showing a talent to jump. At the
Tropical All Breeds Show she was Champion Arabian Derivative
and in the Warmblood ring she was lst mare 4 years and over
and Champion Warmblood. Of course ably shown by her
owner Julie Van der Brug. Warrawee DeeJay joined her
recently and is much loved.
The big moving Anglo filly Gleneagles Cicciolina
owned by John Findlay made her debut at the Diamond Showcase
under saddle and was Champion Ridden Anglo – later to be
discovered she had been prepared and ridden with a broken rib
due to a kick by another horse when she was being broken to
saddle. Unfortunately she will be out of action for a
season to recover.
The Reserve Australian Champion Partbred Gelding
Gleneagles Giorgio by Warrawee Grandee also owned by
John Findlay and G.Buist will compete at the Australian
Championships again in led and under saddle – the big one this
Stop Press: Reserve Newcomer under Saddle - over 40 entries. Top 8 Showhunter Horse and Top 8 Ridden. His first season under saddle at 4 years of age. What a future and still in a snaffle. Congratulations John.
Airlie Kelly reports on Warrawee Chain Reeaction
– having lessons each week with her dressage coach Sue-Ellen
Lovett – “he is the most wonderful horse Pat” – following a
clinic with Carlos de Cleermaeker “Carlos raves about him and
paid him a huge compliment by saying that “he moves like
Whisper (imported warmblood). Carlos is his biggest fan”
(apart from Airlie and her Sue-Ellen Lovett of course),
and “Öur boy is of a very very high standard, so willing
to learn, trainable and sensible.” Wow Airlie – can’t
wait to hear news as he progresses. His dam the
wonderful Warrawee Amoree will join Airlie who also owns the
matriach Warrawee Roxana. Amoree has the most wonderful
Arabian warmblood colt at foot by Warrawee Deecor who will
remain at Warrawee.

Deb Fairburn reports on Warrawee Mardee Gras
Oct – 2nd in his second official dressage start in very
strong company and he went to his first show, State Titles,
where he won the novice and second in the Open – still very
immature as he just keeps growing. Much excitement also
for Deb Fairburn – Mardee Gras Champion Anglo Gelding under
saddle East Coast – a young horse with a huge future.
Sandra Baljeu reports Warrawee Adoree (Warrawee
Grandee/Mt.William Deena) and Mt.William Perelin (by Warrawee
Dundee) are well settled in Germany now and Perelin out
competing with Uwe Deucker. Recently Sandra advised she
received the most wonderful news (she still remains in
Malaysia) – Perelin placed in his first Grand Prix in
Germany. Uwe rode “Peri”in his first Intermediare 11
where he placed with 61% and also qualified for the Grand Prix
the next day where they finished placing 9th with 61.9% out of
a field of 18 riders – one judge giving him an 8 for his one
time changes. Apparently the field of 18 horses
was very strong and of very good quality with riders names
Kasselmanns, Monika Theodorescu, Pattrick Kittel and even some
aussies like Lyndal Oatley and Peter Weston competing.
Sandra’s words –“Yes, Pat, our little Aussie
Anglo has held his own amongst the German Warmbloods IN
Germany and is now officially a Grand-Prix-Placed Dressage
Horse!” During the prize giving ceremony Uwe said that
Peri was so excited during the prize giving ceremony, he could
feel his little heart beat beneath his boots and while all the
othe rhorses were bouncing and leaping around, Peri just stood
there like a rock and took it all in. Perelin had not
competed for over a year since November 2007 when he won the
World Dressage Challenge in KL Malaysia.
Phillipa Jordan-Hill has competed her young
Anglo gelding by Warrawee Grandee successfully and qualified
him for the Aussies – his dam is back in foal to Grandee as
Phillipa loves him so much. Warrawee Show Mee is now
owned by Phillipa and is her riding horse – we couldn’t wish
for a more loving home for this wonderful mare.
The fabulous Anglo baby Warrawee Dreem Maker was
sold to Melissa Wray in South Australia and we hope to see him
out and about soon. Melissa reported “Just a quick
update on “Archie”, he went for his first visit to the
beach. I was unsure how he would react but there was
nothing to worry about as he was an angel. The other
horses we went with all took off and he just walked with me
and was not worried about them not being around at all.
He LOVED the water he was the only horse who would go in! All
the other girls could not believe how fantastic he was even
with the waves coming in quite quickly. We even had
people stopping to take photos of him!” A tribute
to you Melissa on your handling of him.
Warrawee Dazzle Mee with Louisa Giekie won her
ridden class at the Goulburn Valley A Class Show, and Helene
Jennings with Warrawee Marquee also – congratulations.

first dressage competition and was so excited as in the Prelim
he got 63.35% and in the novice he came 5th much to her
surprise – good luck as he progresses Mandy.

to his young owner which is so lovely to hear.
Warrawee A Go Go
Warrawee Peeter Pan – Arabian Warmblood owned by
Jenni Beulke – went to his first Stockmans Challenge where he
had to do events which included whip cracking, walking over
rubber matting, walk through an archway covered in streamers,
carry coats etc. opening gates, walking across a wooden
bridge, posted a letter, backed through an endless sea of
poles – he took it all in his stride – Jenni was so
proud. Great stuff Jenni.
Some time back had the wonderful opportunity to
assist by providing a couple of horses for the Monty Roberts
show and had a photo taken with the great man himself.
Fiona Abbot so excited about Warrawee Eevita
