We can source a horse for every level of rider.
When you are breeding and producing your own top quality horses, there are no missing pieces that could compromise a winning formula! From nutrition, to growth and development, through to all the early handling to cultivate a willing partnership - the team at Whispering Oaks are unique and this translates to Katie's extraordinary success.
A WINNING FORMULA
Quality mares dominate the foundation of our breeding success.
The highlight of our breeding program is the horse Delphi who hit the international stage with sensational results in 2010 as an 8 year old straight out of NZ, going straight into the prestigious Spruce Meadows Summer Series jumping in the 1.60m division, placing 4th in the CN 4* GRAND PRIX & 2nd in the Spruce Meadows World Cup round, along with many placings in international classes. She then went on and jumped 2 clear rounds at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.
In 2011 she headed off to Europe where she jumped first up indoors at St Hertogenbosh and was 4th in the 5* Grand Prix, then onto the FEI WORLD CUP FINALS held in Leipzig, Germany, which she finished 6th Overall - the highest an Australasian has ever placed in the finals.
