It had been a good year for Caballeriza Stud in 2010 with Spanish colt Caballeriza Mateo II winning Led Junior Spanish Entire and was named Champion Junior Spanish Entire. Champion Junior Spanish Andalusian and won the Andaluka Alisamieto Junior Spanish Memorial Trophy at the AHAA State Championships in March 2010 at the Tatura Complex.
In 2011 Ben Terry became is new owner, has backed him and hopefully Mateo will become a very successful dressage prospect.
Lyngara Fillypa came second in the Australian Challenge Trials with a score of 46/50. She also won the Traditional Spanish Attire, Exhibition Class and won the Hi Points Exhibitor trophy. Flip impressed three dressage judges performing “la Garrocha” in the Exhibition Class (her first ‘garrocha’ display) by scoring an impressive 281/300. Both horses were featured in The North Central Review & Flip in the 2011 Horse Magazine for the AHAA.
Melbourne Cup Carnival Media Launch for 2010
Lyngara Fillypa and I were invited to participate in the media launch for the renowned Emirates Marquee in the Birdcage for the Melbourne Cup Carnival (MCC). Because Spain was the 2010 theme of the Marquee, the organisers wanted to have and Andalusian horse at the entrance to the venue in Federation Square. So Lyngara Fillypa had her first trip to the Melbourne CBD. She behaved like the true Spanish Horse she is, displaying ‘garrocha’ at the entrance while helicopters were flying overhead and while being filmed by Channel 7, Network 10 & Age online. We were interviewed by 3AW & photos were taken with Miguel Gomez de Aranda (Spanish Consul General), Barry Brown (Emirates Vice President in Australasia), and Clare Winton Burn (Master Chef finalist). We were on the front page of the MX Melbourne Newspaper and also featured in the Herald Sun & The Age. A picture taken with us and model Sephanie Shreeve will be displayed in the Emirates Marque. We had a great day & the Spanish Horse had some terrific exposure.
