Some are worth waiting for… Stella is one of them. She is the last foal, and the only filly we have retained, out of Ganna Slide. It has taken a long time and a bit of $$ but we are very excited about Stella. She was purpose bred for polocrosse, combining Star Kingdom and Star Black Minstril, but it appears she will suit most things.

Ganna Slide (older full sister to Ganna Slip) was a truly remarkable all round mare. She excelled at polocrosse, competing at club and state level, and won numerous individual awards. Slide was also very cowy, a great work horse who would have made a great campdrafter. She had a cool trainable mind, and was ridden by anyone from children to adults. Slide was a true family horse.

Stella is shaping up to be all that we hoped, perhaps a fraction smaller than expected (given she is pure TB/ASH) but she is a pocket rocket! She was broken in 2016 and has only been ridding lightly on/off since. She should be another fabulous junior prospect for our boys should they wish to ride.

2017 – Some spots came up in our local draft…I thought Id support the local event and Stella was the only other horse I had that was broken in! So took her in and she ran an 81 straight up, into the Encouragement final! She was also competed at Chinchilla Encouragement Draft and ran an 82 in the Maiden. She seems to be a natural. I also have had a few polocrosse muck around on her and love her natural style. I hope to possibly get to a multi horse carnival in 2018 and actually do some more cattle work and clinics with her.
