Lucy reports from Australia

“The recent Stable Grounds Victorian Dressage Festival – State Championship in December, was a fantastic show for Team Keystone and myself.

Keystone Dressage’s young horse team consisted of 4 horses, each of whom did a fantastic job with 8/8 scores through the weekend over 70%. A highlight was 6YO mare Keystone Furstin Class who won round one, on an exciting 82.6%. This exciting young horse is now advertised for sale by Keystone .Dressage 

I also contested Keystone Fantasy in the FEI Young Rider Level, in an experienced, flashy, field – it was Fantasy’s consistency over her tests that led her to State Champion FEI YR, a thrilling win for our team. 

Gymanji stepped up into the u25 Grand Prix for our first time. Many of you who have followed our journey know this was an hugely exciting feat.

None of this would be possible without the support of Keystone Dressage’s amazing team and owner Lillian Savage. It is wonderful to be part of the Keystone’s vision of producing top quality horses for the Australian and New Zealand dressage market.

Biggest thank you to our mentors, supporters, sponsors, families, co-workers and friends create the environment in which we can achieve this success.”

Sending a  Happy New Year and wonderful Holidays from our corner of Australia. Bring on the 2024 season
