Frieda Macklin, Australia
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.

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.
Many congratulations from all at
Holme Trakehners to Frieda, Roz and of course Holme Grove Bolero on her
wonderful successes! As breeders of this beautiful mare we are very proud!
