December 2013/ January 2014


Happy New Year everyone!CLWeltsSateen141213-005


Our big news this update is the sale of our wonderful mare, Carrington Lodge Welt’s Sateen, to young rider Brienna Jameson. Brienna has an eventing background but has decided to put more focus on dressage. Her new partnership with Sateen is sure to see them reach high places. We look forward to seeing them progress and achieve in the arena.


Our two new colts are exploring their new world with enthusiasm and cheekiness.
Carrington Lodge Furst Beau will be available for sale upon weaning, and can be found on the sale page.

Carrington Lodge Furst Flash will be kept as a riding horse for both Peta and the kids. He is already Jordon’s best friend and follows her like a shadow.

At this stage the kids riding is coming along nicely with the lend of JellyBean, a senior citizen fat shetland that happily canters around and pops over cross rails with the kids. Thanks to the Stafleu family for the loan of JellyBean whilst Snowy is being a mum to Mr Patches.

Coming up we have a couple of quiet T shirt hack shows to take the young horses who have recently been started under saddle to.

Carrington Lodge Furstenwelt will make his debut under saddle with a dressage outing in February. We are also pleased to report he is now fully ANSA licenced.


Check our sales page for the few lovely young horses we have available.

The filly fairy didn’t visit us this year, but we are so pleased with the boys.

April 2013 News


More exciting news across April for Carrington Lodge!


Warwick Show:
Exceptional mare (see for sale page) Carrington Lodge Welt’s Sateen had a perfect two-day show. Sateen was awarded in her led Warmblood classes: 1st place mare, Champion Mare and Supreme Warmblood Exhibit.

Sateen went one step further to claim the coveted All Breeds Supreme Exhibit of the show. Many thanks to all of the generous sponsors of Warwick Show including The Flying Dutchman veterinary clinic and Bling it On Browbanks.

Sateen has proven herself to be an exciting saddle horse at her first competition under saddle. She won 1st place in her ANSA ridden class, Warmblood ridden class (Champion Ridden Warmblood as well), Maiden Hack and Novice Hack. Phew!! What an amazing feat for her first ridden show!

Not to be forgotten, young gun CL Excal’s Showman won his ANSA gelding class and we must recognise the exceptional temperament on this yearling. He takes everything in his stride and is such an easy horse to prepare and to show.


Toowoomba Royal Show:

Great results from Toowoomba!

Our stallion CL Furstenwelt won his Warmblood colt class and went on to win the Champion Warmblood Stallion award.

CL Welt’s Sateen gained a very respectable Reserve Champion Warmblood Mare and also won 1st place in her hack class – not bad for her second outing under saddle.


Look out for some media coverage in the local papers about Carrington Lodge’s success.


In other news, CL Furstin Grace has finished her holiday after being broken in, and has been put back into work as of late April. Grace is working nicely in all three paces and is naturally balanced and expressive. Her attitude to work has been impressive and she has been lots of fun to ride. Check out our for sale page to see more of this young mare.

HHP Sir Don Elite was awarded ELITE status with 82% overall (84.5% conformation, 79.5% movement).
HHP Sir Don Ophir was awarded 82% for movement and 77.25% overall.

All of us here at Carrington Lodge, and Bella’s owner, will miss her dearly and wish her all the best in her new adventures. Hopefully we’ll cross paths again and Bella will earn some lovely bows in the dressage and hack circles of WA.
