Collette Wheadon

I began my riding career as an eventer and was very lucky to find myself an incredible partner that took me from Introductory to 2 star in just over a 12 months, gaining us a place on the YR squad. Dutch taught me the world about jumping, but not so much about dressage!! After a few more CIC horses I realised that I should probably take the time to go and really focus on my flat work to be a more rounded competitor, and from that point I never looked back. Ive been very lucky to have been given the ride on some fantastic horses to school, compete and sell, and also have some great students that I love watching progress with their horses, but my main focus is on breeding and competing my own horses.

We have some fantastic young horses incorporating some of the great dressage lines of Sando Hit, Donnerhall, furstenball and Olympic Ferro.  My main current competition horse Delandro, is a  4yo mare by alessandro who this year has placed 3rd and 6th in the 4yo class at DWTS and 2nd and the SA state championships, and recently winning the young Horse at the SA spring championships, who shows a great potential to be the Grand Prix horse I’ve always dreamed of. She will be heading back to Werribee for the Vic DF and DWTS and we also have plans to hopefully  do an embryo Transfer with her in between so have a very busy and exciting 12 months ahead!
