  • Free Masterclass at Boneo Park | Ryans at Newcastle Equestrian Centre
    The Masterclass does reach up into the full blown Grand Prix levels so in the crowd will be some of Australia s top riders who are very interested in the ideas and interpretations being used and expressed in the training of Regardez Moi and Jive Magic Riding at these top levels is not a reflection of amazing riding skills surprise surprise but rather a reflection of a well thought out and rationalized intellectual journey So amazingly the more advanced a rider is the more interesting becomes the Masterclass However the Masterclass does start at the other end with Ann Maree Cambridge Lourey who shows off Byalee Briar who is just starting his dressage career in Preliminary and Novice levels It is at this level that many riders find it easy to relate to and are able to glean tips from the performance which prove to be very useful immediately Byalee Romance represents a more established Medium level horse which is half way to Grand Prix whilst AEA Tuschinski represents a baby horse just approaching Medium level AEA Metallic is a seasoned Prix St George horse now and Dirk Dijkstra is a Dutchman and presents some training ideas which are not

  • Regardez Moi and Jive Magic go Head-to-Head | Ryans at Newcastle Equestrian Centre
    her trademark technical execution I think all of Australia is watching with fascination and wondering whether the final selection trials are going to be just a tad too early for Jive Magic or whether Rozzie will indeed prevail and then one of the current Grand Prix favorites is about to be relegated to reserve status Definitely tension out there and the excitement that comes with the changing of the guard Regardez Moi is the more experienced stallion of the two and does have a magnificent interpretation of piaffe and passage Having represented Australia at the World Cup Final in Las Vegas USA last year he does represent the more seasoned competitor I think when things are going well I would have to be considered an adventurous rider and Regardez Moi does have the ability not only to go through a Grand Prix test without mistake but to do it with an artistic flair Regardez Moi certainly is not modest Both these stallions are now full blown Grand Prix horses and will come together in the final trials for the WEG with no holds barred The first of these Head to Head battles will happen at the Boneo Park s Summer Dressage Championships held on the 6th and 7th March Of course the 6th and 7th March is also the Auction of the Stars where youngstock from both stallions will be auctioned The catalogue for this Auction can be viewed at www auctionofthestars com and there is also a little bit of video footage On Saturday 6th there will also be a free masterclass presented by the two stallions so an exhausting weekend is about to come crashing down around us The second of these Head to Head battles will be just two weeks later at Dressage With the Stars at

  • Heath - "Funny Looking Man" | Ryans at Newcastle Equestrian Centre
    none of we riders thought the course was going to cause much trouble either The following weekend being the 21 st and 22 nd November was the final Auction of the Stars for this year which was held here at home in Heatherbrae This is the only ridden auction that we do all year with all the other auctions throughout the year being primarily weanlings Funnily enough we have had a blinder of a year as far as the auctions are concerned breaking all record prices and clearance rates Top priced horse at our recent Heatherbrae auction was Bradgate Park Magnum fetching over 34 000 incl GST Magnum is a full brother to my advanced event horse Mystery Whisper and is equally talented Magnum is heading up to Queensland The Thursday before the Auction of the Stars was the NSW Institute of Sport Awards night I was embarrassed but I managed to snare the Ian Thorpe Outstanding Achievement Award As usual I had left it to the last minute to jump out of the indoor school have a quick shower throw on some clothes and break all speed records driving to Sydney Upon getting out of the car and walking to the venue I realised that the sole of my shoe was falling off and so I sort of hobbled to my table pretending nothing was awry When my award was announced I scuffled up on to the stage thinking nobody would notice Unfortunately the steps were polished wood and the stage was also wood and my shoe clattered all the way up and across to Alan Jones who was the MC and Ian Thorpe who was presenting the prize Everyone noticed A short interview with Alan Jones and then it was across that dreaded timber stage clattered on down the steps and then right across the room to a corner where all the recipients were getting their photographs taken I was gallantly staggering across pretending to be a stroke victim when that bloody sole completely let go and I had one leg two inches shorter than the other It seemed like the whole room of 500 athletes was watching and I didn t flinch just kept my head up and kept walking Once I got to the designated photo shoot I turned around to see Ian Thorpe approaching me In his hand he had that sole from my shoe and in a very discreet and polite way asked me if this was mine I was so embarrassed and was so tempted to say I had never seen it before Talk about get remembered for all the wrong reasons Talking about getting embarrassed I have been selling breeding packages or shares in Regardez Moi which have been selling well Anyhow I had a phone call from Tasmania and this lady started asking me all about the package I told her that all the conditions and goals and philosophies were up on my website and perhaps the most sensible thing to

  • Regardez Moi sets Tamworth on fire | Ryans at Newcastle Equestrian Centre
    the IN gate one of the cowboys there were some 20 of them involved in other acts all hanging over the IN gate to the magnificent Indoor School making derogatory comments about dressage riders asked rather sternly that s not petrol youv e got there is it The girls looked at him and said of course not do you think we are stupid or something So the pirate music commenced it was dark music and all the lights were turned out The five pirates lit their flares shouldered their way through the 20 cowboys and danced their way around the 20 x 60 dressage arena in a quadrille type performance The quadrille was highlighted by intermitent pirate like growls har har har The four and half minute performance came to a crashing finale as the pirates danced around a Treasure Chest at X in the middle of the Dressage Arena and on cue they all put their flaming flares into the middle where the Treasure Chest lay Well this is where things started to go pear shaped With a woosh an inferno of flames burst out of the chest and reached some 20 feet into the air I was flabbergasted as I was warming up Regardez Moi outside the arena but trying to watch over the IN gate at the same time On asking Gordon later what the heck happended he said that they had experimented with a small container of petrol in the Treasure Chest and some old hay However on the night he had thought it might be a good idea just to double up on the petrol and hay for the real performance Oh my god There were five pirates with singed eyebrows pirate hats on fire and little spot fires in the clothing Oh god The next step was the grabbing of four ropes some four metres in lengths which had been attached to the four corners of the Treasure Chest and carefully lifting the towering inferno treasure chest and then racing it out through the gate Good idea but the fire was so intense that all the ropes caught on fire as well Initially the ropes held and the pirates sprinted the Treasure Chest to the exit but that was as far as the ropes managed to hold together The Treasure Chest dropped to the ground and spilt the remaining litres of petrol over the ground straight into the bunched 20 cowboys Of course this petrol was all on fire and so there were rivers of fire that spread out right across the exit The first of the cowboys to meet the rivers of fire tried to stamp them out but of course the petrol splashed over their boots which also caught on fire Have you ever seen 20 cowboys goose stepping with boots on fire screaming out profanities The cowboys scattered going in every single direction possible Now the music co ordinator was immediately over the top of the IN gate exit and so
