After months of quarantine and travel, ELT and Kieffer sponsored rider Lesley-Anne Taylor is delighted to announce the much-anticipated arrival of her new approved warmblood stallion, Fermento. Standing at 17.3hh and with plenty of chrome, this handsome boy is going to make an impression both in the arena and breeding barn.

It was love at first sight for Lesley-Anne. After a quick trip to Germany to meet Fermento in 2015, she "just had to have him". After only three rides, she knew he was "a wonderful, gentle, relaxed and willing horse with magnificent paces".

We look forward to watching the partnership between Lesley-Anne and Fermento develop, and seeing them out competing.

Newly launched in Australia, Noble Outfitters is already a favourite brand with horse lovers! Designed by an English master saddler, the ‘On the Bit’ cuff bracelets are proving to be a big hit with anyone looking for a cute and fashionable gift, especially at Christmas. A recommended retail price of only $29.95 makes it tempting to buy one in each colour — black, oak-havana and havana-vivacious.

 

Kieffer Australia sponsored rider Brett Parbery overcame almost impossible weather conditions at the Equine Lifestyle Festival in Hawkesbury over the 13-15 November weekend to win on Good as Gold, his bay Australian warmblood.

This is the second time in a month Brett has succeeded despite torrential weather — he and black Hanoverian gelding DP Weltmieser were named Australian Grand Prix Champions for 2015 at the Saddleworld Australian Dressage Championships in harrowing conditions in late October.

 

 

Sometimes a story makes us feel so proud that we can't help but share, even though we tried to keep it a secret! Kim Harvey, mum of talented para-equestrian Nathan Harvey, recently posted a heartfelt and emotional “thank you” on Facebook to Toptac International and Kieffer Australia for providing Nathan with his dream saddle, the new Kieffer Parbery.
