We are thrilled once again with the show success of the progeny of our imported stallion Oakridge Speculator under a UK judge. His daughters, Ingleside Elsa (Oakridge Speculator x Ingleside Elizabeth) and Ingleside Anastasia (Oakridge Speculator x Locksley Farm Rhiannon) took out 1st and 2nd in the senior mare class, and Ingleside Madeline (Oakridge Speculator x Mingara Lady Ebony) and Ingleside Olympia (Oakridge Speculator x Wyee Victorine) also placed 1st and 2nd in the filly under 2yrs class.
Ingleside Elsa went on to win Champion Female wtih Ingleside Madeline awarded Reserve Champion behind her.
Ingleside Comet (Oakridge Speculator x Ingleside Emily) was placed second in the Shire Gelding, 3yrs and Under Class with Ingleside Lucky Chance (Oakridge Speculator x Aarunga Gina) in 3rd.
Ingleside Anastaia, ridden by Ineke Kuiper, won the Ridden Shire class, which was highly competitive with 8 quality entries. Anastasia has inherited Speculator’s lovely topline and movement and looks fabulous under saddle.
The big black gelding, Ingleside Enterprise, a full brother to Elsa, achieved outstanding success by winning Reserve Champion Delivery Horse in the heavy horse harness section. This was out of seven very well supported horse driving classes, some of them with 16 and 17 entries forward!!
Speculator continues to produce show quality horses of an amazingly consistent standard and his progeny have excelled under Australian, UK and US judges over the past eight years since we imported him from the UK. His progeny have been hugely successful in led classes, driving and riding classes, just as he has himself. His foals are also renowned for their tractable and quiet temperament.
Our new imported black colt, Escrick Extreme, won the ‘Shire Colt, under 2yrs’ class and went on to be awarded ‘Reserve Champion Shire Stallion or Colt’ behind another older imported stallion. He is maturing into a huge horse, and will be serving some mares this spring although he has a lot of growing to do yet.
