We are currently competing Bolero under her Stud name Holme Grove Bolero as I am no longer breeding and feel that the stud deserves the credit for their breeding programme.  I felt that you would be pleased to know how Bolero is coping here in Australia.  I am aware that you have had some information on her and her successes.
 
After the National Championships in Melbourne in 2004 Bolero then went on to become the WA small tour champion in 2004.  She was also the high point leaderboard champion for 2004.
 
Bolero and Roz Tippett who rides her, has been out of competition since September 2004 after Roz  had  brain surgery due to a very large anneurism.
 
They are now back in competition and won the small tour championship at Margaret River in WA.  Bolero is now over in Sydney to compete at her first ever CDI.  She will be competing in Pr ST George and Inter 1.  At home she is working on her piaffe and passage and we are optimistic that she will be at Grand Prix next year.
 
Although Bolero is now 14 we are happy to continue as she has so little mileage on her legs due to a large gap in her training when we decided to move to Oz and the fact that she bred one foal  in the Uk.   I do hope this info is of interest to you.  She is very much admired here and has earned the name of "princess" due to her attitude and behaviour.
 
We look forward to the next year with Dramatik,  Lanoir and Bolero and will keep you updated on Bolero"s progress. 
 
I was delighted to go into your website and find that she was mentioned.
 
Regards
Frieda Macklin

NEWS FROM DOWN UNDER

Frieda Macklin, Australia

The trio of horses that Frieda relocated to Australia were Broadstone Dramatik, Trenawin Lanoir and Holme Grove Bolero.  They are now in training with Roz Tippett one of Australia's top riders.  She has been a member of the National Squad and has ridden successfully to Grand Prix.

With Trenawin Lanoir and Broadstone Dramatik adapting well to their new life and showing Novice and Elementary to good effect, the real star of the show must be Holme Grove Bolero who has taken the Western Australia State Championship at Advanced and took the National Reserve Championship title at the same level in 2004.  Numerous other credits at this level are followed by a 4th place at her first PSG and now attacking Small Tour for 2004.
