Our Waler Geldings
Wendara Silver Lining
This beautiful 15hh five year old black silver dapple Waler gelding arrived in late August 2014. He is a wonderful, soulful boy with a to-die-for nature and stunning movement. He is half-brother of my stallion and is a perfect example of the colour that the stallion, Bee, can produce.
We have so much faith in our show horses’ bloodline’s that we have purchased 25 doses of semen from Wendara Silver Lining’s sire, Sand Palm Digger, owned by Pauline Prince. The beautiful black Garden lines stallion is not only of a rare quality bloodline, he also passes onto his foals, smooth showy fronted looks that we like to see in our foals. This semen will be available for stud use only but we are excited to have his bloodlines available for our use and for diversification of our stallion lines!
Given Wendara Silver Lining’s movement, self carriage and exceptional quality, he is competing as an show hunter galloway with Emily Wonka aboard.
Wendara Silver Lining competed in his first year under saddle in the show ring in 2017 and produced his best performances to date:
- QLD Waler Championships – Grand Champion Adult Waler, Champion Gelding
- Queensland Royal – Supreme Led Waler, Best Ridden Waler Exhibit

Johnnie is also by Sand Palm Digger and he was acquired by Pinnacle Peak Stud in September 2016. He was purchased as another example of the excellent progeny that Sand Palm Digger provides.
Johnnie is a bay gelding and measures around 16hh. He shows an extraordinary amount of potential as an open show hunter hack. He was ridden skillfully by Emily Wonka at an Ipswich Hack Day, and was well regarded in the led show hunter hack and ridden show hunter hack.
Johnnie is spelling along with our regular show team and awaiting 2017 where we hope to unleash some of his untapped potential in the open newcomer show ring. We have great expectations for this large boy with a larger than life personality!
