Our Waler mares
Laila is a lovely medium type Waler mare, palomino in colour and 14.1hh. She is a foundation Waler from Naryilco station. She has a beautiful nature. Her very attentive personality makes her the darling of this Waler horse stud! She is a very lovely horse, with perfect manners and a touch of class about her. She is an absolute delight to ride, with the most willing nature. She actually does her best work at shows, where rather than being distracted, she becomes very focused on her rider at the exclusion of everything else.
Laila had her maiden foal in 2017, and our first foal of the 2017-2018 season, an expressive bay colt. Her colt, Pinnacle Italian Harlequin, has been weaned, and is now a strapping nine month old, expected to mature 14.3hh, and is available for sale. Harley has rip roaring movement, and a very smooth outline and sizeable hindquarter like his dam. If not sold at 12 months, he will be gelded to make a very flash riding gelding.
She is confirmed in foal to Trublu Trail Blazer and we look forward to their resulting foal on 18 August 2018.

Imita Ridge Sunrise Serenade
Imita Ridge Sunrise Serenade was rescued by Pinnacle Peak Stud and my mother Fiona Bieber jointly from the Echuca Sales in September 2015. She had had little handling or care prior to this. She has been steadily handled and was broken in November 2015 by Paul Austin Equitation. She is an outstanding Waler with a very nice front.
She is a 15.2hh dapple grey mare. She is by Wadi Farm Kokoda out of Redgum Saqqara. She’s a mix of foundation Kimberley, Earaheedy, Garden, Cordillo, Jinka and Clayton lines.
Her show results in her first year of showing in 2016 were remarkable:
- Allora Show – Champion Any Other Registered Breed
- Ipswich Show – Supreme Waler
- Laidley Show – Reserve Champion Waler
- Gatton Show – Reserve Champion Waler
She went to the Queensland Royal 2016 and produced a standout ridden performance with Emily Wonka aboard that was described by the judge as the most polished and best workout. She was described on two occasions in the breed’s ring as an quality open show hunter horse.
Imi has really done it all, in 2017, she attended three shows in foal, or with a foal at foot! Firstly, she attended Marburg Show in May 2017. In June 2017, she was in foal visibly and went to Ipswich Show, but still won Best Waler mare. Her unassuming and gentle nature always impresses the judges, and she was spelled, with her foal due in September 2017.
On 2 September 2017, she foaled a lovely bay filly by Bee, Pinnacle Sunrise Surprise, in full daylight. This remarkable little filly was so quiet, that at five weeks, we popped them both on a truck to Gatton and she ran free alongside her dam in the Yearling and Under Filly section of the QLD Waler Championships 2017, in October 2017. Sunny is now a very large seven month old, expected to mature 15.2hh, and is due to be weaned shortly and has inherited her mum’s easy going nature and sire’s confidence.
Imi is now confirmed in foal to Warratah Aurora Australis and we very much look forward to the resulting foal in early December 2018.
Eagle Rock Terra Australis
Libby is by Warratah Aurora Australis out of Warratah Gypsy. She came to our stud on her dam at a month old unhandled, and from the moment she arrived has shown a most beautiful, obliging, friendly and quiet nature, on top of her lovely conformation.
She is our youngest Supreme winner, going to Ipswich Show as her first show at 7 months old and winning Supreme Waler. We continued to lightly show her in 2017, next starting at Laidley and again winning Champion Waler under a very well respected stockhorse breeder judge. She then attended the Queensland Royal Show, taking it all in her stride in her usual quiet way, but unfortunately little Libby got an allergic reaction to the sawdust and she was unplaced but the judge was very complimentary of her lovely nature and “she’s one to watch for the future”.
Snowy Penshurst, dual registerable Waler mare, is by Snowy Ryrie out of Talara Alpha Limerick, and she is of Lyndavale x Jinka x Cordillo x Newhaven lines. At ten years old, she is an experienced eventer, show jumper and in the show ring and she’s now at Pinnacle Peak Stud. Pixie is a fantastic beginner’s and teenage mount. Pixie will be used for showing and competition and eventually breeding.
Disappointingly, Pixie was found to have an age related hock problem, noticed soon after purchase in 2017 and confirmed by Xray in February 2018, and we have been recommended to spell her for at least six months by our vets. We put her in with Warratah Star in early March 2018 and we are excited as to the offspring this pair will produce.
Warratah Shiloh is a lovely black mare by Providence Bismark out of Baralbee Shandie, and is of Cordillo Jinka lines. This delightful dual registerable heritage Waler mare is in foal to Bee and is due to foal in April 2018.
Baralbee Jandamarra is a chestnut silver mare by Baralbee Australis out of Jiltre Chloe. This dual registerable heritage Waler mare is in foal to the grey stallion pictured after her below, NP Fonzarelli of Forever Walers, to produce a Garden/Cordillo/Jinka lines foal and was due to foal in January 2018.
She has since given birth to a lovely bay silver filly on 8 December 2017, named Pinnacle Silver Cherry Blossum, affectionately known as ‘Devil’. Devil is expected to mature around 14.3hh. We are awaiting 2018-2019 breeding season before putting Janda in foal again.
Providence Amazing Grace
Providence Amazing Grace is a jet black mare by Providence Bismark out of Providence Bishari. This delightful Cordillo Jinka lines dual registerable heritage Waler mare is in foal to Bee due on 12 March 2018.
Warratah Gypsy is a brown mare by Providence Bismark out of Baralbee Genesis. She’s a very gentle, soulful Cordillo Jinka lines dual registerable heritage Waler mare. She’s the dam of the lovely filly Eagle Rock Terra Australis, who won in 2017 two supreme Waler titles by the age of 9 months.
She foaled an incredibly beautiful filly by Bee on 19 November 2017 named Pinnacle Ricadonna Ruby, affectionately nicknamed ‘Funnyface’, expected to mature 15hh. Funny disastrously got herself caught in a fence as two month old, deeply cutting her extensor tendon in her hind leg, which ultimately required a month at the hospital to save her. It is healing well, but time will tell if she will ever live out her potential as a show horse. We are awaiting 2018-2019 breeding season before putting Gypsy in foal again.
Wootton Park Kiri
Wootton Park Kiri is a delightful flaxen chestnut mare by Chauvel’s Charger out of Wootton Park Jaffa Star. She’s has an outstanding nature, and is just a little bit special being a Jinka lines dual registerable heritage Waler mare. She was much loved by her previous owner and we can see why!
We are not quite sure whether to put Miss Jinka (also nicknamed ‘Dragon’ due to her ridiculously beautiful nature) in foal or not, and whether to use either Bee or Warratah Star, or show her in 2018.
Her grey sire, pictured below her, is one of the most beautiful foundation stallions from yesteryear, and she’s the only descendant known in either Waler society today.
Lucy is a striking brown heavier type mare, measured 15hh by WHSA. She has the most calm, laidback nature. Her movement is absolutely beautiful and eye catching. She is a very kind mare, and her first foal, Pinnacle Calypso Silver Rose, is a spitting image of her, with the bonus of silver inherited from her sire!
She was bred to Bee again and produced another beautiful brown silver foal on 26 September 2017 named Pinnacle Sweet Silver Belle. We expect Miss Belle to mature 15hh or a shade over. We are awaiting 2018-2019 breeding season before putting Lucy in foal again.
Clayton Tarari Kaydes
Clayton Tarari Kaydes is a lovely old lines typey Clayton mare. She was ridden very successfully both at home and in competition by her previous owner before being retired to stud after a paddock injury ended her career. Kaydee has a very solid work ethic and a can-do responsive attitude, and absolutely no resistance in her at all.
She foaled a handsome, ridiculously friendly chestnut filly by Bee on 30 January 2018, named Pinnacle Calico Kat, affectionately nicknamed “Puss Puss”. Puss is expected to mature 15hh or a touch under. We are awaiting 2018-2019 breeding season before putting Kayde in foal again.
