Discerning Performance Horse Breeders
Nurturing with Passion, Integrity & Professionalism

 

MISSION STATEMENT: "To produce talented, purpose-bred, Australian Warmblood horses with functional conformation, amenable characters and good disposition for the Olympic disciplines of dressage, eventing and show jumping for amateur and professional riders alike."

 

What is functional conformation (form to function)?

 

FUNCTIONAL CONFORMATION: "Functional conformation, or form to function as it is also called, gives breeders another tool for selecting pairings of stallions and mares to produce foals that have the functional conformation to perform well in, and withstand the rigors of, specific disciplines."

 

The above definition of functional conformation is by Judy Wardrope, JW Equine.

 

Character and disposition are known to be inheritable qualities, so what is character and what is disposition?

 

CHARACTER: "The term character is about manners with people and behaviour in the stable. A good-natured horse that is accommodating on the ground and interacts with people in a friendly manner has a good character."

 

DISPOSITION: "Disposition, which includes rideability and trainability, is evaluated under saddle. With respect to rideability, we mean that the horse can be ridden comfortably, has a nice and light connection, and is also light and quick to the aids. With respect to trainability, we mean that the horse can be trained in a pleasant way."

 

The above definitions of character and disposition are quotes from Wim Versteeg, the KWPN Senior Inspector Stallion Selection (dressage and jumper horses).

 

Temperament is genetic and the most consistent trait in the horse. I strive to breed horses that are desirable by riders, not only for functional conformation and movement, but also for temperament (inherent amenable characters and good disposition). Horses that are / have:

 

  • A natural desire / willingness to work, are enthusiastic and forward;
  • Perseverant and continue to work even when work becomes demanding;
  • A natural sensitivity, are sharp and sensitive to the aids;
  • Brave and bold, not looky or spooky;
  • Submissive and obedient, uncomplicated;
  • Social and friendly towards humans;
  • Patient and co-operative; and
  • Perceptive, intelligent and learn quickly.

Testimonials

 

Professional, passionate, knowledgeable, dedicated, organised, reliable and very honest, are just a few words that spring to my mind when I think of Shanna of Harris Park Warmbloods. The thoroughness of her breeding program (from choice of stallion right through to halter breaking and weaning of the foal), shows her focus and determination to produce quality riding horses that are well mannered and a pleasure to own.

 

Shanna shows a genuine desire to ensure that her horses go to well-suited homes. At no stage did I feel pressured to buy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for generously sharing her extensive knowledge and wish her every success in the future. I look forward to staying in touch and will continually keep her updated on Geronimo's progress. Thank you!

 

CHARLOTTE COX - Willow Vale, Queensland.

 

 

I am writing to let you know how delighted we are with the colt you bred, Harris Park Digby, and to give you a little progress report. Since he calmly arrived off the truck from you after that long journey, almost one year ago, all legs and ears, he has blossomed into a sturdy 16 hh of placid, curious and handsome. He is a very even tempered chap, happy to deal with our farm chaos, dogs playing and rushing past, tractors, cows, sheep, chainsaws, small squealing children who pop up in his paddock, and our farrier loves him. He is so well mannered. Always important!

 

He is so easygoing and we can move him from paddock to paddock with no drama at all (unlike our other silly Thoroughbreds) – easy to rug, wash, worm, lead and all those other day to day dealings that make him a pleasure in every respect. He is a credit to your great handling and early ground work.

 

Both my daughter and I feel he is a real privilege to have around and we want you to know how thrilled with him we are. I will try and discipline myself to send you some photos - needless to say we are looking forward to great things of him as a calm performer in the dressage arena for the future. Exciting days ahead!

 

JENNIFER SIMPSON-SMITH - Flynn, Victoria.

 

 

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Shanna of Harris Park Warmbloods for the lovely horses she has bred, and we currently own. Her choice of stallion is what brought her to our attention and when we saw the foal, we just fell in love immediately. She kept us informed of his progress and would not let the sale go through until she was completely satisfied that he was sound and healthy. We were so impressed with Harris Park Freestyler that we bought a second horse from her, HPW Dunham RW. Registration and paperwork was completed and assessments were all done.

 

These horses are forming the basis for our young riding stable. We are impressed with their looks and conformation and they are truly beautiful horses. Each has a unique personality and they are a pleasure to own. We are looking forward to competing Dunham this year and Tyler the next.

 

These horses, and indeed all of Shanna's horses, seem to have excellent temperaments and are very well behaved whilst being handled and moved; a testament to their early handling and groundwork and the dedication, time and effort that Shanna puts into all her horses. We thank her for the wonderful work she has done with breeding and look forward to a long friendship and association with her in the future.

 

KYLIE THOMAS AND MIKALA THOMAS - Lismore, New South Wales.
