Team Halter and the Mulawa Community recently enjoyed a hugely successful weekend at the NSW State Titles. Mulawa-bred horses swept both the Champion & Reserve Champion titles in three of the four purebred breeding classes. The Junior Fillies were won by a sixth-generation Mulawa-bred female named FANTASIA MI. From the very first foal crop of Australian National Champion, as well as US & Canadian Reserve National Champion KAVALLE MI , FANTASIA is the first of her sire's foals to be shown. FANTASIA is also the first foal born to her glorious dam MI KLASSIC FANTASY , a former East Coast Champion & Australian National Reserve Champion, who is in turn a daughter of Living Legends KLASS & MUSTANG'S
