Well after a long absence from the Manorvale Stables web page there is so much news to catch up on.

Some beautiful Manorvale stock have been bringing home the bows for their new owners.

MANORVALE BLUE AND ROYAL (M. Royal Show x Helden Park Fantasia) was purchased in 2011 as rising 2yo by well known show and dressage rider Sara Love. Sara was the winner of the 2010 Garryowen , so we knew ''Willy'' was going to be in great hands.
As a 2yo he won numerous in-hand titles,  including the Best Led Arabian derivative gelding at the Sydney Royal Easter Show (a feat he repeated again this year).
As a 3yo Willy was supreme saddle exhibit at his first ridden show, just weeks after being broken in. It was a sign of big things to come!
Willy capped off his debut saddle season by being sashed the EA Victorian Newcomer Hack of the Year (pictured above)
As a 4yo he was virtually unbeatable in the Arabian derivative ring, taking out Australian Champion led AND ridden partbred gelding, along with the coverted Silver Spurs award for best young saddle horse.

Realising she was onto a winning formula, Sara came back to purchase Willy's black and beautiful younger half brother MANORVALE AFTER FIVE (Royalwood Boy Soprano x Helden Park Fantasia).
So far ''Declan's'' in-hand wins include Supreme Champion Arabian Derivative at the 2013 Barastoc Horse of the Year and Champion Arabian Riding Pony Gelding at Melbourne Summer Royal, but it as saddle horse we feel he will truly make his mark. Standby for his ridden debut in January 2015!

The partbred welsh mare Tibooburra Apricot Tart has been an successful and entertaining part of the Manorvale show team for the past four years, as my son Tex's leading rein mount.
Together T1 and T2 have won awards including 2011 Barastoc HOTY Leading Rein Showhunter, Victorian SHC Leading Rein Pony of the Year and twice Top 10 at the Grand National Saddle Horse Championships.
With Tex having turned 8 this year, his leading rein days are over and new phase flying solo has begun. :)
