OSO Performance’s 2021 Show Season got off to a flying start last weekend at the Double Diamond Arabian Showcase with our team nailing a huge weekend at K Ranch, Mt Hunter NSW.
Being our first show back since COVID-19 wreaked havoc for the majority of 2020, we started off with just a small team – Heath Rowbottom (Fearless Leader!), Chloe Hayden (Rider), Tamara Gibson (Groom) - attending to ease us back into the swing of things.
Once the team arrived safe n’ sound Chloe had the chance to give the boys a good workout! Our 2 absolutely stunning imported geldings AL MARAH RED RODERIGO (BREMERVALE ANDRONICUS x AM RED SANDS) and AL MARAH LAND SPEED (AM SWIFT x AM SANDS OF TIME) with the most beautiful characters, incredibly trainable are a joy to ride! Both are also FOR SALE to only the very best home x
OSO SORSHA (HUN X SAVANNA QUEEN)
Ø Reserve Champion Anglo Female
This mare is an absolute moving machine! Pure power and everything our Anglo sports horses should be! Huge thanks to Emma and Matt from Voller Park for her early years’ education!
OSO XANNYA (HUN x DANAES XENIA)
Ø Diamond Class Winner - DD Champion Purebred Arabian Filly/Mare (7 yrs & over)
When you just own it, our champion .... winning her class …. with class!!!
Xannya will never be everyone’s 'favourite’ because she is “OSO” different, but she’s everything we want to show and breed. How can we ever stop showing a horse that everyone loves to adore.
AL MARAH LAND SPEED (AM SWIFT x AM SANDS OF TIME) had an absolutely brilliant first-ever show winning:
Ø Novice Purebred Gelding
Ø Champion of Champions (Novice)
Ø Open Purebred Hunter
and came 2nd in Newcomers
Meanwhile, OSO LEONARDO (ALOHA KAABA X OSO LOCKET), one of our gorgeous horses that had moved on to pastures new could not have found a more perfect home where he is absolutely adored. Tish Lyon was all smiles after taking Champion of Champions Bridlepath and 2nd Open Purebred Hunter. Watching the live stream, I was in tears! So proud of my baby and Tish x
For those that don’t show wouldn't understand how much love, dedication, endless preparation and fine-tuning goes into every horse, rider and handler on the team. It’s truly mind-blowing when you get a glimpse behind-the-scenes .........
What a show all our horses had, I really couldn’t be more incredibly proud of them and our amazing and dedicated team! We're super excited for the Australian Championships in a week's time!
