Welcome to Nungarra Warmbloods

5 December, 2018  Great news is that we have sold another Nungarra youngster. Nungarra Royal Order has been sold to a Victorian rider so he is about to embark on the journey back from Queensland, where he has been in training with Gary Lung since earlier this year. 'Roy's' new owner will be taking on a young, well trained boy ready to take out and begin their career together. As always, we wish them well and as I (Deb) have a very soft spot for 'Roy', we will follow their journey with interest.

30 November, 2018  A good note on which to leave Nungarra. Our sweet young A'Seduction (Jaybee Always) gelding Nungarra A'Scott has been sold to Susanne Jones. Susanne is an experienced horsewoman who lives nearby. Sam Neilsen says he hasn't put a foot wrong while starting his education under saddle and has been a pleasure to work with. Susanne is keen to begin her journey with Scotty and we wish them both well.

Our moving date is getting closer! Things are busy around Nungarra as we pack up both the house and the farm. we have destocked all our sheep but we do still have some young horses here and available for sale. We are happy for people to continue to visit us to view our horses right up until moving dat in early January.

6 September, 2018  Good news and very sad news to share.

R.I.P.  - on Tuesday 4 September Nungarra Simply Red was laid to rest on his home property in NSW. With his young rider, 'Ranger' had a short but very successful career in the Show Ring. This was a shock to all and our thoughts and big hugs go to Phoebe and her wonderful team.

On a brighter note, two Nungarra Warmbloods horses have been named on EA squads. Nungarra Furst Class and rider Kylie Calderwood have been accepted onto the 2018 Victoria AOR State Dressage Squad. Nungarra Bonfire and rider Danielle Turner have been accepted onto the 2018 National Para-Equestrian High Performance Squad - a real step in the right direction for their tilt at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Hearty congratulations to both these partnerships.

August, 2018  Nungarra has been sold and we will be retiring to Warrnambool early next year. We do not intend to continue breeding but do have a few young horses still available for sale. Check the relevant pages on this web-site.  We will continue to follow the careers of any Nungarra horses so do hope owners will keep us informed through our Facebook page or by email or phone. Breeding has been a great experience and and though we have been a small stud, we are thrilled that many of our youngsters have begun very successful careers.

4 July, 2018  Nungarra Felicity and Nungarra Lawrence went to new homes recently and all reports are that both horses have settled in well. 

In June, we received great news that Nungarra Bonfire (previously Nungarra Realm) had her first start in the para equestrian world at Werribee, with a win. This is a promising start for her new owner, Danielle Turner, who is working to qualify for the Tokyo Paralympics. 

In May, Kylie Calderwood and Nungarra Furst Class had a successfull outing at the Victorian Dressage Club competition at Werribee, coming home with Novice Champion after coming 2nd in both tests

May, 2018  Congratulations to two new owners of Nungarra Warmbloods youngsters.  Nungarra Felicity (3yo Furst Love filly) has been sold locally in Victoria and Nungarra Lawrence (Nungarra Felicity's full brother), recently in training with Grand Prix rider, Gary Lung, has been sold to Queensland. We wish these two riders the very best for their coming journeys with their new equine partners.

22 March, 2018  Quite a bit of great news lately.  Yesterday we received a message that Nungarra Simply Red and rider Phoebe O'Connell had achieved Reserve Champion Child's Show Hunter Hack at the Grand Nationals. Another very successful outing for this young duo. 

On 10th March, Kylie Claderwood and Nungarra Furst Class (Licorish) had  an outing to the WVDC EA competition. Quote ...'a few little mistakes (like breaking in one of our lengthened trots and me asking for canter way before the marker) but he felt super!' Together they gained  67% in both tests and equal Novice Reserve Champion. Kylie's goal is to qualify for the Nationals ... so they are on their way.

We recently recieved an email from Danielle Turner who now owns Nungarra Bonfire (Realm), with some very exciting news. Danielle has MS so at times finds riding very challenging. She recently attended a clinic and was told that her pertnership with 'Jules' was good enough to make the Tokyo Paralympics her goal! She recently went to Boneo for their first competition and came 3rd in their second test (she prefers to forget they rode the first test!) and 2nd overall in the AOR. A great start for their journey to Tokyo.  (Danielle's full email can be found on the Nungarra Warmbloods FaceBook page and is worth reading.)

6 February, 2018  We are very pleased to announce the sale of Nungarra Black Lilly (Furst Love/Capone). Congratulations to Kelli Weber on her purchase of this delightful 5yo mare. Kelli rode Lilly the day she came home from the breaker and made the comment 'she han't put a foot wrong this afternoon'. Very best wishes to this new partnership and again, we look forward to following the career of another of our 'babies'. 

4 February, 2018  Another successfull outing for Nungarra Simply Red and rider Phoebe O'Connell at this year's NSW Horse of the Year Show in Sydney.  1st in Rider Class; 2nd in Child's Hunter Class and 3rd in Open Class. Meaning this duo is off to Nationals in December for the third year in a row!  Well done and hearty congratulations to horse and rider and their support team again.

Nungarra Black Lilly arrived home from her first exposure to life under saddle this morning. She has coped extremely well with the 7 weeks of 'school' and came off the truck looking fabulous. Thanks to Sam Neilsen for giving Lilly such a gret start under saddle. Photos and video should be up on the Horses for Sale tab early in the week.

It was great to recently receive a message from the people who now own Nungarra Iced VoVo. She was sold as a weanling and we have often wondered what had come of her. She is now 3yo and living in the Hunter Valley. She is to be started under saddle around May, so we will be keen to follow her progress.

Nungarra LuLu is working well and about to embark on her competition career. Her new owner plans to take LuLu out to some unofficial dressage competitions over the next few months with a view to beginning official competition mid-year. Best wishes to this terrific partnership.

14 September, 2017   Well, it is some time since our last update! The weather over the winter has made life challenging and with mud up to our ankles horse activity has been somewhat limited. Now the weather is improving a little and the ground is drying out Nungarra Black Lilly will head off to be started under saddle this weekend. She such a sweet and brave young horse so we are really looking forward to her first report from the trainer.

Nungarra Furst Class (Licorish) was out competing last weekend with great success. He competed in Preliminary at the Barastoc Dressage Championships at Elmore on both Saturday and Sunday gaining 75.22% (Test 1.1) for 1st place and 65.2% (Test 1.2) for 2nd place on the Saturday (Reserve Champion) and 71.1% (Test 1.1) for 2nd place and 65% (Test 1.3) for 6th place on the Sunday. Kylie told me he has had regular 8s and even 9s on his report card for EA competitions this year. What a little star!

Nungarra Simply Red has had a few outings over the past months also. In July he and Phoebe competed at the NSW Young Rider Championships, gaining 3rd place in Preliminary 1.3 with a score of 72.7%. This was particularly exciting as both the 1st and 2nd place getters were professional riders.  This duo also competed at the Macquarie Bank Hack Championships last weekend, coming Runner-Up in the Large Show Hunter Horse class and qualifying for this class at the Grand Nationals next year in Sydney. Again, huge congratulations to this young team.

12 June, 2017  Nungarra LuLu left her place of birth and ventured to South Australia last Tuesday morning. She arrived safely on Wednesday morning and settled quickly. Congratulations to her new owner. We look forward to hearing about their journey as a they forge a strong dressage partnership. 

28 April, 2017  Out and About News: Sydney Royal Easter Show saw more ribbons for Nungarra Simply Red and rider Phoebe O'Connell. Just out of his Newcomer Year they won the Equestrian Showcase and came 2nd in their Rider Class. A great effort.

Nungarra Furst Class (Licorish) had a busy few days last weekend. On Saturday he placed in both his Preliminary Tests at the Elmore EA Dresage Club competition and on the Sunday, again at Elmore, he won the Level 3 Championship (HRCAV) with two fantastic scores:  84.2% and 77.7%. In one test he received ten 9s and a 10 for his canter! Needless to say owner/rider Kylie Calderwood was thrilled with the weekend, especially as the conditions were far less than optimal as it had been raining heavily on the Friday and the arenas were very slippery.

27 March, 2017  Sad day today at Nungarra Warmbloods. After an accident during a thunderstorm Nungarra Vice Regal had to be euthanaised. What a sweet boy he was - always keen for a cuddle and to please his human company. He will be missed :((

12 March, 2017  More exciting news of Nungarra Simply Red. This time at the NSW EA Horse of the Year Show in Sydney. Runner-Up Child's Hunter Hack which means he and young rider, Phoebe O'Connell, will be back at Werribee in December for the EA Australasian Show Horse and Rider Championships, where they had great success in 2016.

26 February, 2017  Nungarra Simply Red and his rider, Phoebe O'Connell, have spent the past week at the Canberra Royal Show. They take home: 2nd Child's Hunter Hack and 5th in the Open Class, as well as 5th in Rider class (15 - 17yo riders). Congratulations on another terrific result for this exciting young partnership.

3 February, 2017  Nungarra Simply Red just keeps on winning!! Today 'Ranger' and Phoebe did their first Hunter Class at the SAIGE Pacific  Coast Hack Championships winning Champion Child's Hack and qualifying for the Grands Nationals 2018. Well done team - congratulations from Nungarra Warmbloods.

27January, 2017  
Hearty congratulations to the new owner of Nungarra Roxanne, 5yo mare by Royal Hit. At this stage we believe Roxanne is destined for a dressage career, so we look forward to hearing of her progress and successes along the way. 

24 January, 2017  Nungarra LuLu has settled in well to her schooling programme. Current pics are now on the Horses for Sale page and video of her second ride under saddle will be up shortly. Sam is pleased with her progress and said she very quickly worked out the right 'answers' when he began long-rein training. Today she looked relaxed a confident during her second ride. We look forward to more great reports of her progress.

1 January, 2017  Happy New Year to everyone.

The New Year sees Nungarra Warmbloods scaling back significantly so we are having a general Dispersal Sale. After 10 years of breeding very successfully we have decided to disperse the stud to concentrate on our expanding commercial sheep business. This is a great opportunity for you to own a future champion or breed your own champion. 
All horse are available for sale including yearlings, 2yo yongsters, older horses (some under saddle) and broodmares in foal and dry.
Broodmares by Capone; young stock by Royal Hit, Furst Love, Versace, 00Seven and A’Seduction.
Inspections available - just call Chris on 0428 503 647.

28 December, 2016  Today Nungarra LuLu set off on her journey of life under saddle. She loaded onto the truck easily and reportedly travelled and unloaded well. Reports on her progress as they come to hand.
20 December, 2016  Some recent news to hand. Nungarra Simply Red tried his 'hoof' at dressage last weekend following his great success at the Australasian Show Horse Championships. Competing in the Bowral Dressage Club Members Championships, he won the Preliminary 1.2 with a fabulous score of 76.923! This was also enough to win the Young Rider Award as together 'Red' and rider Sophie O'Connell, gained the highest score of the day for a rider under 25 years of age. Another fabulous outing for this young duo.

11 December, 2016  A bit has been happening for our horses in the competition world in the last few weeks. Nungarra Furst Class had an HRCAV outing recently placing in both Level 3 tests and breaking the 75% barrier. The following weekend he fronted up again but this time for an EA Preliminary outing at Elmore, where he came 4th in the Championship with 66% and 68%. 

The recent highlight has to be Nungarra Simply Red ridden by young Phoebe O'Connell at the prestigious EA Australasian Show Horse and Rider Championships at Werribee last weekend. 'Red' and Phoebe were the Champion combination for Child's Hack over 16hh. A very exciting win for everyone. I'm told 'Red' has been enjoying a week of no work in a grassy paddock as his reward. I guess for Phoebe it was school as usual!

Nungarra Lawrence returned home yesterday after a few weeks at 'finishing school'. He passed with flying colours - video can be viewed on the Horses for Sale page. Next to be started under saddle will be Nungarra LuLu - her planned start date is just after Christmas at this stage. Looking forward to seeing her under saddle as she is a pleasure to handle and a striking young mare to look at.

18 October, 2016  News of Nungarra Furst Class (Licorish) continuing on his winning way was received on Sunday afternoon - Preliminary Reserve Champion after achieving two 2nds at Albury Dressage competition. This was the first EA competition for Licorish when ridden by his owner Kylie Calderwood. For previous EA comps he was ridden by a professional rider but ridden successfully by Kylie for a series of HRCAV competitions.
Nungarra Simply Red put in a good performance in the Dressage element of the recent Australian Interschool Equestrian Championships but missed a placing. We are looking forward to meeting up with him again in December when he is in Melbourne for the National Show horse Competition at Werribee.

28 September, 2016  Having just recently re-connected with Santana has been very rewarding. She and owner/rider, Kylie Slaughter, recently won the Queensland Amateur Showjumper of the Year. Very exciting news for her owner (who just loves her). Best wishes from  Nungarra Warmbloods for continuing success in the show jumping arena.

26 September, 2016  What an exciting day! Nungarra Simply Red, ridden by Phoebe O'Connell, was named Overall Winner Show Horse (secondary) at the Australian Interschool Equestrian Championships in Sydney today.  Huge congratulations to the team who put together such a great win. Phoebe and 'Red' front up again on Wednesday for the Dressage - wishing them another very successful day. 

4 September, 2016  How time flies when its pouring with rain for weeks on end! However things are beginning to dry a little and people are out and about with their horses.

Nungarra Furst Class was out for the first time in a number of months. He and owner/rider Kylie calderwood had a very succcessful day at Elcho Park winning the Level 3 Championship with scores of 73% and 77%. They are off to Elmore next weekend - best of luck to this fabulous partnership.

We had an exciting find last week. Many years ago we purchased a baby through the Belcam International Dispersal Sale. We named her Belcam Santana and after having her started under saddle we sold her to a young woman in NSW. Within the year we had lost contact with her and so, were unable to follow Santana's career. Facebook turned out to provide a reconnect! Having been sold on and spending a while with her new owner at Heath and Rosie Ryan's stables, Santana is now owned by Kylie Slaughter in Queensland and has begun a very successful show jumping career. Santana is lead horse on the Amateur Show Jumping Leaderboard in Queensland and I note has had a succcessful weekend at the Beaudesert Show taking out equal first place in the 1.15m Ammy Class. Her owner, Kylie, is thrilled with Santana and assures me she is a 'forever horse'. We look forward to following Santana's career and hopefully meeting up with her again soon as she now lives just around the corner from good friends - small world!  Kylie has sent us some photos so will post some here asap.

15 June, 2016  At last school reports are completed and I have a chance to update our news. Nungarra Furst Class continues on his winning way, taking out the Level 3 Championship at the Rich River Equestrian Group Dressage Jackpot at Elmore today. After a bit of showing off around the warm-up arena he managed a 1st and 2nd at his first offical HRCAV event. Needless to say his owner/rider Kylie Calderwood was delighted with the outing.

Nungarra Lawrence has now been started under saddle. At present he is home for a spell before heading back for a bit of polish. Reports of his early work are very positive, with the 'breaker' telling us he has an amazing trot and a HUGE future. He is on the market so we look forward to some lucky owner developing that future with him.

Nungarra Valentino and Nungarra Vice Regal have now been weaned. Both young boys have had some basic in-hand schooling and are a deight to handle. Enquiries about both youngster are welcome.

18 March, 2016  After a stirling effort yesterday receiving 69% to end in the top 20 in the 4YO class at Dressage with the Stars, Nungarra Furst Class when on to win the 4YO consolation round this moring with a score of 75.4%. His owner, Kylie Calderwood, said that despite the hideous weather conditions he didn't miss a beat as he and rider Justine Greer battled the wind and the rain, ploughed through puddles and worked past flapping marques. Again, huge congratulations to all concerned and thanks to Justine for riding one of our babies to such a great result.

7 March, 2016  Today we received an update on Nungarra Simply Red's exploits on the weekend. After such a successful day on Friday he didn't disappoint yesterday! 'Big Red' and his 14yo rider, Phoebe O'Connell, achieved Runner Up Child's Hack at the EA NSW Horse of the Year Show and have qualified for the Nationals at Werribee in December. They also came 3rd in the 13 - 15yo Rider Class (ridden in a snaffle bridle) and are Reserve for the NSW team at the Nationals in December. Could be another busy few days for this exciting young pair. Our heartiest congratulations to Phoebe, 'Big Red' and all who have worked so hard to achieve these exciting milestones.

4 March, 2016  Very exciting news today! Nungarra Simply Red has just been named Champion Newcomer and Preliminary Champion at the EA Horse of the Year Show in Sydney. Congratulations to all concerned. A great effort, especially as the young rider and 'Big Red' haven't been together very long. 

1 March, 2016  News today is that Nungarra Simply Red, qualified with his 14yo rider, for Young Rider last weekend and is off to the EA Horse Of the Year Show this coming weekend. Very best wishes to all concerned and look forward to hearing your results. Hope to have a pic. on the SOLD page very soon. Quote from the new owner: 'He has the most wonderful nature. Congratulations on breeding such a special horse.'   

8 February, 2016  Nungarra Bonfire has been in touch again. This time she told me she competed in her first EA Novice at Werribee on the weekend and came 5th and 6th in her tests. Her 'mum' thinks she's 'soooooooooooo pretty'. 

6 February, 2016  Nungarra Furst Class competed in only his 2nd EA outing today for the 4YO class at Werribee. He gained 2nd place with a massive score of 78.8%! Another qualifying score for DWTS. Congratulations to Kylie and her team for this two day campaign. Cant wait for DWTS.
