Our Waler mares
— Wootton Park Kiri —
Wootton Park Kiri is an aged delightful flaxen chestnut mare by Chauvel’s Charger out of Wootton Park Jaffa Star. She 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!
It was a difficult decision whether to put Jinka in foal or to show her! She, unfortunately, did not foal until 2019-2020 breeding season and foaled an extroverted pangare bay colt on 27 November 2020 named Pinnacle Rocky Rockstar. She was not put in foal in 2020-2021 breeding season due to recurring laminitis issues, and this may be her last foal.
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.
— Eagle Rock Terra Australis —
Libby is a filly 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”.
She was shown in 2018 with success, winning Champion Waler at Ipswich Show and Lowood Show. She, unfortunately, was attacked by a dog in mid-2018 resulting in a serious hock injury that affected her the rest of the year and continuing into 2019. It is possible that her prospects after such a bright start may be broodmare only however we have continued with vet treatment to see whether there is any prospect of recommencing a show or starting a ridden career with this beautiful filly.
She was put in foal in 2019-2020 and foaled a lovely bay colt by Trublu Trail Blazer on 28 August 2020, named Pinnacle Trend Setter.
— Snowy Penshurst (sold) —
Snowy Penshurst, a young 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, showjumper 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 and was intended to be used for riding primarily rather than 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.
As a result, we put her in with Warratah Star, however, she miscarried twins on 10 February 2019 one month prior to her due date of 26 March 2018.
In 2019-2020 breeding season, she was put into foal to Trublu Trail Blazer, confirmed in foal, and sold to Walzing Walers at Gympie in early 2020, where she foaled a healthy bay filly on 25 August 2020.
— Naryilco Laila (sold) —
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 by Bee called Pinnacle Italian Harlequin. She was put in foal to Trublu Trail Blazer the following season and had a pretty buckskin filly on 10 August 2018 called Pinnacle Lucky Charm.
She was again put in foal to Trublu Trail Blazer in 2018 and is due to foal on 29 July 2019. She was sold with the business and had a bay filly on 20 August 2019 at Dalby named Pinnacle Lunar Eclipse.
She continues to be used as a riding horse for Rachael at Dalby.

— Warratah Gypsy (sold) —
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 a 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 showhorse.
Gypsy was put in foal again in 2018 to Bee and was due to foal approximately 27 July 2019. She was sold with the business to Dalby, however, she slipped a filly foal on 29 June 2019 at Dalby and has not been put in foal since.
— Baralbee Jandamarra (sold) —
Baralbee Jandamarra is an aged 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 due in January 2018. She subsequently gave birth to a lovely bay silver filly on 8 December 2017, named Pinnacle Silver Cherry Blossum, affectionately known as ‘Devil’.
Given Janda’s age, we chose not to put her in foal again. She was sold with the business in 2019, however did not have another foal at Dalby, and passed away in February 2020.
— Providence Amazing Grace (sold) —
Providence Amazing Grace is a late teens jet black mare by Providence Bismark out of Providence Bishari. This lovely Cordillo Jinka lines dual registerable heritage Waler mare was put in foal to Bee and foaled a lovely sensitive and willing to please brown filly named Pinnacle Monaco Miss.
Grace was put in foal in 2018 to Bee and is due to foal early in the 2019-2020 breeding season. She was sold to Walzing Walers at Gympie in 2019 where she foaled a beautiful black silver filly on 21 December 2019.
— Sunrise Serenade (sold) —
Imita Ridge Sunrise Serenade was rescued by Pinnacle Peak Stud and my mother Fiona Bieber 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 a 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.
She was put in foal to Warratah Aurora Australis the following season and foaled a lovely bay colt born 8 November 2018, named Pinnacle Final Dynasty. They went with the business in 2019 to Dalby and Imi is now back under saddle as a riding horse.
— Warratah Shiloh (sold) —
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 was put in foal to Bee and foaled a lovely smart and confident brown filly named Pinnacle Santana Savannah.
Shiloh was put in foal in 2018 to Bee and is due to foal early in the 2019-2020 breeding season, approximately 17 August 2019. She did have her foal on 22 August 2019, a filly named Pinnacle Summer Shandie, after being sold with the business to Dalby, however, tragically passed away soon after due to colic. Her foal was saved and bucket reared by the amazing Rachael.
— Naryilco Lucy (sold) —
Lucy is a striking brown heavier type mare, measured 15hh by WHSA. She has the calmest, 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.
She was sold with the business to Dalby not in foal and has had a foal by Warratah Star in 2020.
— Clayton Tarari Kaydes (sold) —
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.
Kayde was sold with the business, and had a beautiful bay filly by Trublu Trail Blazer at Dalby named Pinnacle Winter Frost (paddock named ‘Ava’).
