Gone to new homes
Our magic little monkey has gone to a loving new home with Anna Jackson who loves him dearly.
Anna is a long time friend of ours and had grown to love Zippy on her regular visits to Loxton. The opportunity arose for Anna to take Zippy on full time and he has landed in horse heaven with a fairy god mother!!
Anna is a talented rider of smaller stature and is well suited to the little powerhouse Zippy is. She has years of experience under her belt and isn't afraid to learn more!!
Already out and about with her new mate, Anna is determined to get Zippy and herself into the Dressage arena and show everyone that size is irrelevant when it comes to movement and pizazz!!
You go girl!! we will be there cheering you one every step of the way!
Zippy is the perfect match for energetic Anna and we are so excited for them both!!
Pen-nant Royal Heirloom (Jess)
For Mae White it was love at first sight when she met Jess. Jess is a very pretty and rather magical Welsh D mare.
Mae has has horses all her life and has an affinity for the Welsh breed.
Jess is in great hands with Mae and her family and we wish them all the very best of luck for the future as Jess settles into her forever home!
Jess will be missed as she is a easy going mare who is a joy to work with.
She is the dam of our very blingy GRP Colt Thiacan Harlequin (by Movie Star).
We are thrilled for Mae and Jess and know they are going to make a great team!!

Thiacan Verismo (Archie)
(Voices W x Thiacan Der Von Wanda)
Foaled December 2016
Gorgeous Archie has been purchased by Claire Zeppel as her future dressage horse.
He joins Thiacan Der Von Waltz in Claire's paddocks and is certainly going to create some serious horse envy as he matures!
Archie is by Voices W (Voice / Sunny Boy) out of the beautiful Thiacan Der Von Wanda (DiMaggio / Don Schufro) with a pedigree like that, he cannot fail to impress even the fussiest of Dressage Divas!
Claire has had a long association with Thiacan Dressage and is one of our 'Sponsored' riders. We love watching Claire's progress with her well loved horses and enjoy seeing them immaculately turned out each time they visit!
We are so excited about the future for Claire and her two stunning Boys!!
(Hatero De Pb (imp Spain) x Bellbrae Jorja)
Foaled October 2014
This filly was simply a once in a lifetime foal.
She's a black dun and purpose bred for the Pony Dressage scene out of our super producing mare Jorja!
Purchased by Katheryn Cox from Kyabram in Victoria, Bonnie has found a wonderful home with an adoring new owner, Katheryn recently wrote...
"I love our big girl - she's got such a lovely nature - in your face "what are you up to mum and how can I help?" She's brave when something she hasn't seen before presents itself - like our sheep! But she doesn't run - she looks and I swear I can see her brain processing it and logically assessing the new situation ... then generally walks up and puts her nose right on whatever she was looking at! Gold! Such a "can do" attitude is going to be great under saddle in a couple of years!"
(Donnerblitz x Ancona Anne tb)
Foaled December 2011
Sheree Chappel of Renmark SA chose Ritzy as her future Dressage and Eventing partner. A keen horsewoman and courageous eventer, Sheree and Ritzy have a exciting time ahead of them!
Ritzy was such a gorgeous filly and has matured into the most stunning mare. The darkest of liver chestnuts like her TB Dam, she is very eye catching.
So happy this beautiful horse is living close by and we get to see her progress!
(Donnerblitz x Bellbrae Jorja)
Foaled February 2013
Beautiful Donandra has joined Brockhurst Stud as Georgie Ray's future personal Dressage Pony. I could not have dreamt of a better placement for this special Girl!
When I started breeding ponies again after many years (I had an ASSPS Stallion for years) I wanted to breed versatile, functional and good moving small warmbloods.
I am very proud of Donandra and hope I can breed others as good as her in the future.
Trainer Esther Cruckshank commented recently... "Just had a couple of great rides on the beautiful and talented 'Donandra' this filly is a credit to her breeder Vicki and her owner Georgie. She has the temperament, looks and ability to be a super-star. So excited to be a part of her journey and can't wait to see what the future holds for her"
(Donnerblitz x Thiacan Gabrielle)
Foaled February 2013
This super sweet leggy filly has been lucky enough to become Julie Robinson of Jarado Park's next Event / Dressage prospect.
Donelle has the most beautiful nature and is blessed with wonderful movement! She is just a delight!
Expected to be 'started' under saddle in 2016 the future is exciting for this lovely girl!!
Thiacan Der Von Waltz
(Der Von Wedel x I'm a Staract tb)
Foaled October 2012
By the movement machine 'Wedel' out of a handy TB mare, Der Von Waltz has the looks and the movement to make any dressage diva or showie's dream come true! He is tall, dark and handsome and can really move!!
Wally is just a little superstar... he was the most adorable foal and captured Claire's heart from the day she laid eyes on him.
She bought him at only a few months old and they are really coming along now under saddle!
Claire has been a long time student and friend and seeing this partnership evolve is so very satisfying!
Thiacan Der Von Oriella
(Der Von Wedel x Danson Donner Fashion)
Foaled September 2012
When this filly was born I couldn't believe how beautiful she was. From the first moment her movie star looks captivated everyone. She is special. Her Dam DDF is also a beautiful mare and this filly has everything her mother has and more!!
I am thrilled she is now owned by Alisha Rudiger. Alisha has been associated with Thiacan Dressage from day one and having her ride a horse I have bred is very fulfilling.
I am looking forward to seeing how Alisha and Ella grow together and have enjoyed the journey so far!
Havenleigh Park Royal Amber
(Royal Hit imp dec x Diodorus AA)
I didn't breed Amber, a good friend did. I was lucky enough to have been asked to take her on as a yearling. I was also fortunate to have bred an exceptional foal from Amber (Don Royale).
Amber is a beautiful moving and very intelligent mare who is getting better and better all the time. She feels wonderful under saddle and as she gets older and stronger she is going to become very very good!!
Naiomi Vanderwoude rode Amber for me for 6 months before buying her and the partnership has grown from strength to strength.
Finding the right human for the horse is as important to me as breeding a good horse.
This sweet natured warmblood mare by Belcam Gambler, out of a TB mare, was bred by Michelle Clark of Mallala.
Gabrielle was a successful broodmare for both Michelle and myself after she sustained a leg injury which put a stop to her being broken in as a youngster.
She is the dam of Thiacan Donelle. I decided to start her again under saddle due to her beautiful nature and awesome movement.
Gabby showed a willingness to learn and had the temperament for any rider.
She tries her heart out is just a beautiful natured horse that is so easy to have around.
She has now found herself a beautiful home and is here in SA where we get to hear how she is going with her happy owner!
(Donnerblitz imp x Wenckstern ifs)
Fashion was bred by Heather Currie of Danson Dressage and bought by me as a prospective mount and breeding prospect.
I bred the stunning Der Von Oriella from Fashion and then reluctantly sold her on due to having too many horses. I am pleased to say though that her home with Eyelyn Fletcher is amazing and she is much loved!
Fashion was a favourite at the stables and a very easy to train horse, she is fondly remembered and we enjoy hearing about her from Evelyn!
(Wayandah Park Tramp x Thiacan Meli)
Foaled January 2011
This gorgeous chestnut mare has 4 white socks and a perfect blaze, she is like a rocking horse!! a welsh Arabian cross with the wonderful characteristics of both breeds!!
Happy owner Khleanne Kent of Loxton SA writes about her beautiful pony
Since the later part of 2013 I have been around the Riverland Riding Academy, which is the home of Vicki Oliver owner of Thiacan Dressage, that is where I first got to know Thiacan Calypso, also known by the name Bimbo. I purchased her in early 2014.
At the time of buying Bimbo I was a nervy beginner rider who rode an aged gelding, with no ambition to do anything with my riding than just relaxing trail rides, who knew that my little 3-year-old chestnut pony would change all that.
Two years later, Bimbo and I have learnt so much together and we have days when rides haven’t gone well and I have wanted to sit and cry, then the opposite, when we master something, I’m so excited that I feel like I’m going to burst and to some they are probably the smallest things, but big steps for us. Bimbo has been patient with my learning, forgiving of my mistakes and has been my solace.
My aim, when we get everything right together is pony dressage.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not grateful to Vicki for the opportunity to own such a beautiful pony and proud of our achievements. It’s very difficult to write two years of love and pride in a couple of paragraphs but this pony is my everything.
