Two of the DYNAMIK STALLIONS team ventured out to Taminga and Southside jumping competitions in WA where both had clear rounds and enjoyed themselves.


All of the stallions at the stud have great jumping scores from their licensing and it is fun for the boys to mix up their dressage careers with a bit of jumping from time to time. 


The stallions enjoyed their jumping training at home with Lisa-Marie Hemschenherm, a talented 15 yo rider from Germany who spent 3 weeks at DYNAMIK STALLIONS. She is the daughter of one of Germany's top pony breeders.
