September/ October 2013

It's been a long time since I have updated the site as truly have been so busy with the horses, new home shop and judging commitments.

As it's been so long I will do a little re cap of the past few months:

Merivale Park ponies have been out and about carrying the flag for the stud once again. Merivale Park Royal Encore (Willowcroft Winter/Myscal Encore) was sashed Newcomer Large POTY and Premlinary Pony at the ENSW HOTY. Also Top 10 ending up 4th in the Open Large Ponies at his 4th outing. He then continued on his winning ways by being award Champion Led Open pony, Champion Ridden Novice and Champ ridden RP. Biggest congratulations to Simon De Leeuw, Michael Glenn and Michelle Panetta. Big things too come for this stunning pony.

Merivale Park Kings Ransom headed off to his new family in Qld and he could not be more loved. The Pluknett and Teys family prepared him for Brisbane Royal and I flew up too watch Charlie at his first Royal Show under saddle. With Melissa in the saddle he was sashed Reserve Champion Novice and Res Champion Open Large Pony. Also led by Mark Lilley he was sashed Champion RP Gelding and also won his Ridden RP class 12.2hh/13.2hh with Melissa again in the saddle. It was truly a delight too be watching on these occasions and MP Kings Ransom, MP Royal Encore and MP Angels Song where presented just so beautifully. All credit must go to the owners.

Merivale Park Toy Soldier has continued on his wining ways almost every he goes. Also winning the Turnout at Melb Royal and carrying Tatye to Res Champion Boy Rider. Biggest congrats too you all.

There are so many more MP ponies out and about and I wish them all the very best for the up and coming season. Do love receiving your excited phone call. Please keep them coming.

Merivale Park So Fair is another sensational Newcomer to debut this season owned by Jade O Brien in WA. So Fair all 11.3hh and has already like Spring Collection started the messages and texts of how stunning they are. So Fair is a full sister to already Royal champion MP Royal Encore,MP Town Fair(twice Supreme RP at Melb Summer Royal) Half sister to Willowcroft Regal Winter(one of the best performed galloways of all time) and MP Steal The Show (Royal Champion). So its a thrill too see this tiny mare make her debut. Too all the MP Newcomers and Encore progeny best of luck.

We have 5 foals due this season, two from imported mares and we cannot wait for them too arrive. Follow us on Face Book (Merivale Park) for photos as they arrive. Sure too be some more Royal Champions amongst them and most will be for sale due to time constraints.
