Coleman calves starting to arrive, June 2011

 Coleman Calves

We are very excited to announce that many of our long-awaited calves by Cole First Down and Cole Windfall 144W are starting to hit the ground. Imported embryos from Coleman Limousin Ranch are due any day as well. It is certainly an exciting time for cattle breeders to see the result of hand-picked genetics finally arriving and ready to perform for us in Australia.

NCHA Futurity, 2nd-12th June 2011

The NCHA Futurity turned out to be not only a great success but a fantastic experience at the same time. Our team consisted of a gelding by One Moore Playboy in the Non-Pro Futurity and a gelding by Racketeer Cat in the Non-Pro Classic Challenge. We ended up finaling both horses and took home 6th place in the Limited Non-Pro Futurity riding One Moore Poker Face and 15th in the Non-Pro Classic Challenge riding Dee Bar Isa Blue Cat. Lynda and Jim would really like to thank Link and Chris Baumann for their invaluable assistance and advice for the 12 mths prior to the futurity and help with training Poker Face. Lynda would also like to thank her help team at the Futurity- Link Baumann, Jason Leitch, Sue Williams and Rob Hodgman.

Vale Tassamint, 10th November 2011- 4th April 2011


Our favourite broodmare “Tassamint” died on Monday 4th April at just 10 yrs of age from colic. Tassamint was purchased in 2005 at the NCHA Futurity as a 3 yr old. Jim and Lynda both campaigned Tassamint in the campdraft arena where she won her first start and never failed to final or place at every start after that. We are lucky enough to have 2 foals out of her, a black colt by Acres Destiny and a chestnut filly by Rey Dual. It always happens to the good ones...

Phil Dawson Clinic, 12th -13th March 2011

The picturesque Belltrees Station was the venue for the Phil Dawson clinic hosted by the Hunter Valley Cutting Horse Club. Lynda attended the clinic and felt her horse improve over the weekend as a result of Phil’s simple training style and reinforced the message not to over-complicate things when training a cutting horse.

NCHA National Finals, 23rd-27th February 2011

 Lynda on Mo-Jo

Lynda competed in the Snaffle Bit at the NCHA National Finals on 2 horses “Pepolena” owned by Manali Partnership and “Curley Lena” alias “Mo-Jo” owned by John Duggan of Coolah. Pepolena competed first and scored a solid 72 points but it was Curley Lena who scored a massive 75 pts to win the Snaffle Bit National Final Title. Thanks to John for allowing me to compete on his sacred Mo-Jo.

Landmark Classic Campdraft Sale, 4th-6th February 2011

Landmark Classic sale
 Glen-Bryde Instant Charm, purchasers Damien & Lisa West with Jim & Lynda

Extreme temperatures of over 40® Celcius could not prevent another successful Landmark Classic Sale in 2011. Manali sold 3 horses for an average of $10,000. The top priced mare was a 4yr old Instant Dulce mare sold to Damien & Lisa West from Southern NSW for $15,000. Thankyou to all our purchasers and under bidders and we look forward to hearing how these horses perform in the future.

Jason Leitch Clinic, January 2011

Jim and Lynda travelled to Mudgee in mid January to participate in a Jason Leitch clinic. Jason has a very practical and easy to understand technique when explaining how he trains his horses whether it be for cutting or campdrafting. His training style is very cow related and Jason’s endless one liners and inspirational quotes create and very positive and light atmosphere.
