Judy Dierks: Jun/15


Team Dierks has had an amazingly successful and busy last couple of months in the competition arena. It’s very rewarding to see that what we aimed for our team of horses to achieve at the start of the year was not just realistic but accomplished and at times better than expected!

Apart from all the local wins at the Clarendon, we set off for a long journey to Melbourne for Dressage with the Stars with the super stallions Solo Feliz and Bloomers Simply The Best. The 5 year old stallion Bloomer Simply The Best, Owned by Melanie Bloom, did an amazing job in the huge indoor atmosphere to get Reserve Champion 5 year old. The outstanding Solo Feliz, Owned by the Dierks Family, made everyone proud winning Champion 6 Year old, going on to win Champion of Champion Young Horse!

The Newham family are over the moon with our results on Diamond Star, from doing his first Grand Prix in February and aiming to qualify for CDI to winning four from four GP’s! Qualifying him for the Sydney CDI where he achieved an amazing third place in the Grand Prix followed by an incredible win in the GP freestyle with 72%. Diamond Star at only 9 years old and with only five GP’s under his belt, really shows he’s on the money.

Highlight Australia not only returned to the arena this year at Advanced to qualify for the CDI but also easily qualified at PSG. It was Highlights debut at this level and at the CDI he strutted away with a prestigious win of the PSGN for Judy and his very happy owner Jenalle Duffy.

Solo Feliz again undefeated in the 6 year old class coming away with Champion 6 year old. We would like to thank all our owners and sponsors for their continued support. CopRice feeds are a huge part of our success, as you can see they all perform so calmly and well on CopRice.
