With our 2012 show season nearly at an end both Werby and Bellize have had a wonderful season. Werby started off in style at the AFWHS Friesian Gala show where nearly 40 friesians both pure and partbred competed. Werby stole the show winning Champion Led Purebred, Champion Ridden Purebred and ending the day by being named the Supreme Friesian Exhibit for the day. Our next show was Camperdown Ag Show and this time Bellize won Champion Led Any other Breed. At Geelong Royal, Werby was recovering from an injury but still managed to get 2nd Place in the Purebred Male class in the biggest field of purebred in the shows history. Bellize also came 2nd in her Purebred Female class. By Warrnambool Show, Werby was back to his old self and again won Champion Led Purebred Friesian and Champion Ridden Purebred Friesian, once again in the largest ever field at that show. We still have one show to go but we are extremely happy with our horses performance this season.
Once again Terarossa Lodge has had great success at the Melbourne Summer Royal held in Jan 2012. Bellize our three year old filly sired by Denni won Champion Led Purebred Friesian and then went on to win Supreme Friesian Exhibit of the show. This is the second year in a row that we have won this honour and with two different horses. A first for any stud in Australia.
Bellize was not the only horse from our stud to win at the 2012 Royal. Werby our imported stallion won Reserve Champion Ridden Friesian Exhibit and Terarossa Alchemist, owned by Kellie Mitchell, won Reserve Champion Led Partbred Friesian at only 14 months old, in a large field of mature horses.

Frelle wins at the Melbourne Royal 2011
Our 2011 show season finished in style with our mare Frelle winning big time at the Royal. Frelle won her led mare class then went on to win Champion Led Friesian. She then went up against the partbred champion to win Supreme Friesian Exhibit, her competition won the title last year. This win qualified her for the Best of Breeds Championship. Frelle did a wonderful workout and got named in the Top 4 horses in the show. A first for a friesian in Australia. So proud of our girl.
Started off the 2010 show season on the 14th October with the Geelong Royal.
Took both Werby and Frelle for their first ever show. They did not disappiont us. Both Frelle and Werby won their respective classes in the purebred led division. They then went up against each other for Champion Led Friesian, Werby was very happy cuddling the crowd that had come to watch and didn't want to leave them, consequently he was very lazy and didn't trot out the way we know he can. Frelle on the otherhand didn't like them packing up the showjumps right next to her. When it was her turn she showed the beautiful flowing movement that she is known for. Consequently Frelle won Champion and Werby got Reserve Champion. Frelle was then up for Supreme Friesian Exhibit, where the Champions go against each other. Once again she did a wonderful workout and won Supreme.
Ridden classes were next, Werby won his purebred ridden class. He made up for his laziness in the led and did a wonderful workout, even with the barrel racing going on right next to him, he didn't miss a beat. He then went on to be named Champion Ridden Friesian. This was in a field of 5 purebreds and 5 part breds which is a very good turnout for our shows.
