  • Great Report from Eleanor Miller

    17th December 2015

    "I just wanted to get in contact with you regarding a mare we bred by Visage. We bred Kaloona Virago (aka Fancy) 7 years ago now, and she has really proven herself in the show jumping ring. Over the past year we stepped up and started competing in the Amateur of the year series. At the last sydney show jumping event we had secured enough points to be named as the amateur of the year. She is a real beauty and has been the perfect horse for us.  I just wanted to let you know her success." & read more...

  • Brother for Vegas

    28th October 2015

    Royal Native finally gave birth yesterday to her first colt since Vegas was born early in 2006. She has produced a string of lovely Pinto fillies in the interim for both Tallara and Dave as well as Copabella, and now we have a gorgeous big bay colt. On this happy note, we will probably let Royal Native retire after a lengthy career of breeding duties.

  • Ventura

    28th October 2015

    Julia has been hoping for a full brother to Vegas for years now, and finally we have one. We're calling him Ventura because it means 'Good Fortune', and he is already looking set to become a serious jumper. Seen in these photos at just 24 hours old today, he is a very leggy, big, elegant type and he even had his first jump - over the ground feeder. Unfortunately the battery in my camera had just died, so I had to use my phone and sort of botched the shot displaying perfect jumping technique.

  • Visage's Kids in Germany

    24th October 2015

    Julia is very excited to have Vegas back in full work after a lengthy rehab following an accident last year which cut one of his feet wide open. But he's now been given the go-ahead to start jumping again and will be off to his first competition soon. Meanwhile Georgie is thoroughly enjoying bringing Verve on and finding her quite grown up for a just-turned five-year-old. They will also be off to their first competition quite soon.

  • Showcase Wrap-Up

    22nd October 2015

    It wound up being a successful weekend for Brooke and Copabella, with Tulara Colmine, aka Atom, winning the 5-year-old final, and Voltage finishing a close 2nd in the final of the Bronze series. Big brother Verdi also looked great with Tallara in the Silver series final, but an unlucky rail had them out of the final line-up. Then it was Cadiz's turn in the World Cup qualifier and he looked pretty comfortable and confident navigating the very big tough course with a few green rails along the way. read more...
