Dressage with the Stars - Successive Success

For the second year in a row, Team Mulawa Performance was victorious at Dressage with the Stars, the 10th annual event in Werribee, Victoria.

In the toughest competition for young Dressage horses on the continent, Arabian Warmblood mare SUGARLOAF SIRHARA was named Champion Five Year Old with an excellent score of 9.0 for Ridability from UK-based and South African born Emile Faurie. SIRARA was also the highest scoring Dressage horse of the show with an excellent score of 82.4%.

On Saturday evening competing against both the champion four and six year olds from their respective divisions, SIRHARA was named Australian Young Dressage Horse Champion of Champions to the thundering approval of the crowd. As such, SIRHARA is only the second Australian-bred horse to win this prestigious prize and qualify for the Bundeschampionat in Germany later in 2012.

Congratulations to Daniella Dierks for a job superbly done. This is Daniella's secnd successive win with the AYDH Champion of Champions title, as Dee and REVELWOOD DONATELLO were named the ultimate champions in 2011, the first all-Australian team to be victorious at DWTS.

A special thank you to PSI for sponsoring this wonderful event and congratulations to breeders Lynn & Malcolm Gilbert of Sugarloaf Stables on your extraordinary achievement.
