Ema's best friend and the king of Snowy River Farm. Bendigo took Ema from preliminary to five-star; he's known for his picturesque form over a fence and he's a real trier.
Likes: jumping big fences, and doing so at speed.
Dislikes: dressage; being confined to a stall for any period of time.
Owners: Jeni Klugman
This 8yo mare is as talented as she is precocious. Sourced in England as a rambunctious young horse, Bronte has quickly become a superstar, most recently winning the Virginia CCI***-L in 2020 and moving up to Advanced in spring 2021.
Likes: any kind of food, and being clipped.
Dislikes: being on a diet.
Owners: Bronte Beach syndicate
"The Fern" may be little, but she's got serious scope and she likes to win. Always with a bounce in her step and just the right amount of attitude, this diminutive horse started eventing in June 2020 and has won 7 out of her 11 starts, with wins at training, modified, and preliminary levels.
Likes: being the center of attention, and cuddles.
Dislikes: being ignored.
Owners: Team Fern
Joker had a long and successful career as a racehorse, and then took Ema around several Advanced and 4* events. He now enjoys a healthy balance of trail riding and teaching young riders the ropes of eventing.
Likes: carrots, and splashing in his water trough.
Dislikes: being separated from longtime boyfriend Bendigo
Owners: Jeni Klugman, Lucia Hanmer
