Well as we near the end of another year, we reflect on what was and plan for
the new year. 2006 was a mix of ups and downs, and now its time to move on and have an awesome year! Heaps to
do and plan, Khouros under saddle, new foals, youngsters to show and sell, new breedings to outside stallions, overseas trips
planned, and of course heading to the Australian National Champs at Horsley park NSW in March! VERY exciting times to
be had! Some SHAH horses found new homes and will be shown at halter and under saddle, representing their sire, Khouros
and carrying our stud name, and we wish all of you the very best of luck with all you wish to strive for this year!
Khouros has had a monstrous season, and we look forward to hearing of all his new babies and we had been competing successfully
under saddle and doing dressage. We would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year and we look forward to catching up
with you all in 2007!

30th Oct 2006
Top of the Range went quite well - Zaffiro SHAH owned by Amanda Lugton took
1st place in the 3 and under Arabian WB gelding class and judge Mr Scott Benjamin(Canada) stated that his movement blew him
away and he was the best moving horse at the show! So that was a lovely comment for us! Sonya Velic who owns Kai
Hai Khaatya (Khouros x Gleniph Antionette) won reserve Champion filly Egyptian Related judged by Mr Anthony Mountney, so congrats
to Sonya!!!!! She looked lovely! Amanda then showed Zaf in his amateur handler class and won against some
regular competitors (this being Amandas first time out!) and then to top it off she won Reserve Derivative
Gelding AOH! Congrats! I am sure there will be many more wins for you two! Khouros went out under
saddle and got himself 2 2nds one in maiden under saddle and Novice Stallion under saddle, we had a few issues
but we are already going like a champ at home again, and looking forward to getting him out at the PRARG sunrise Series.
Other horses that we have bred that competed at the TOTR show was Sacred Hill Kamilah owned by Kerry Watson, it was wonderful
seeing her out and she looked amazing!!!!!! Also her full sibling SHAH Kaliforniaa owned by Cheona Hatchman,
he went around wonderfully for his young rider in his saddle, halter and youth classes.
It was wonderful catching up with all our friends again
and sitting back having a few drinks and chatting! Looking forward to next season now!

Things have been happening here over the last couple of months! Mouse

shows (Thanks Brooke!) So Mouse is feeling fit, relaxed and content! A big thanks to all that have bred and have
mares booked to him, we will look forward to seeing all the future babies! Khouros has attended a couple of dressage
days and has had great success and this weekend will see our return back to Top Of the Range Arabian Event, so it will be
emotional, exciting and I am very proud of how far I have come since Top of the Range last year where I had my accident, Mark
has been my support and has encouraged me to keep going, he is my rock! My friends have all been supportive
of me getting back to what I love doing and there are many that have helped me thru my hard times, so thank you!
Our foals are not due until Dec so its a lonnnnnngggg wait for us! RL

this special boy! He will always hold a special place in our hearts. And I am sure he will continue with his successes

We have two exciting sales to announce! Firstly Sacred Hill Tashamah
has been sold to a wonderful young family in Cedar Grove Qld, Julie is thrilled with her purchase and I think she is now a

We wish The Dervans all the fun and success with this young girl!
Then we have the announcement of the sale of SHAH Khapone to his new home in
South Australia, and Scoob will be heading to his new home in the next couple of weeks! This is very exciting for us,
and we are so happy that Scoob will be loved and shown and enjoyed again!

Hill horse owners and we wish you all the luck in the world with them!
|Zaffiro SHAH with his mum, Amanda Lugton
Zaffiro SHAH has competed at his first show for his owner Amanda Lugton at
the Pan Pacific held at Ipswich showgrounds. He was shown by Simone Tiplady to Reserve Champion Arabian Warmblood exhibit
and got some fabulous feedback from the judge, Mrs Liz Salmon. We are all looking forward to seeing how he and Khouros
go at the Qld Challenge Show! Zaffiro took everything in his stride and showed brilliantly!!!!!!
Well the Eastcoast and Aussies have already passed! Khouros received
Top 5 honours at the Eastcoast championships and Top 10 at the Australian Arabian National Champs. He showed his
butt off at both shows and although he hadn't even been in the country long, he still put everything into his showing!
He truly is a legend and I am sooooo proud to be owned by him! Not many stallions could've endured what he has done.
He is my legend.........:) Thank you to everyone out there that supported us and Khouros, you know who you are!!!!
Happy New Year to everyone! Hope your 2006 is an absolute corker and
you achieve all you hope to achieve!!!!
2006 sees the return of our stallion, Khouros. He will be heading directly
to Future Farms to continue his conditioning and then he will be travelling via Eastcoast Arabian Championships, which Natasha
Smith and I will be travelling to, to cheer on our Favourite boy!!!!! Then onto the Australian Arabian National Championships
in Toowoomba! This is gonna be one well travelled boy! Then he will return back to Sacred Hill to enjoy a well
earned rest before he starts his saddle career again! Due to my accident, I have definitely been slowed down, so 2006
will be a slow one for me. I am still looking forward to my boy getting out and about though. Thanks to everyone
involved in making my dream a reality and I am so looking forward to these shows!
The birth of a special girl..........22nd
We witnessed the birth of RL High Society's first ever filly,
on the 22nd Nov. This special young lady is by our man, Khouros, and will be a special addition to our stud. We
are thrilled with this cross again, she has the body, legs, neck and head that we love and look forward to seeing her grow
up! She is named to remember her Grand dam, Yukon Park Bint Kamista, who is Khouros' dam, Kamista has passed away and
its our tribute to this amazing mare, if it wasn't for her, we wouldn't be where we are now, so thank you and farewell Kamista,
and welcome Khamistah, the new generation.........
|SHAH Khamistah (Khouros x RL high Society)
It is with great pleasure we announce the sale of our special
boy, Zaffiro SHAH. He is our first Arabian WB foal and he is simply a STUNNER!!!!! He has been sold
to Amanda Lugton Brisbane Qld, and will be shown at our Arabian Shows and will also be competing in Dressage when he is older.
We are thrilled for Amanda's purchase and we welcome her to the Sacred Hill family!!!!

1st November 2005
Just to let everyone know that I suffered an accident at the Top
of the Range Arabian Event on the 22nd Oct, at the Toowoomba Showgrounds. I was showing SHAH Khapone in the liberty
event after winning Champion Jnr Gelding, all went well until I went to catch him and he decided he hadn't finished and he
double barrelled me in the stomach throwing me a fair distance. I would like to thank all that helped me whilst waiting
for the ambulance, Shannon, Sue, Dave, Mark (as you can imagine I can't remember everyone due to the pain and the blackouts),
It was terrifying for all. Finally the ambulance arrived (Felt like for ever!!!!!!) and Mark and I were taken to the
Toowoomba Base Hospital. After many hours of being in emergency ward I was admitted into the Critical Care Ward.
It was terrifying leaving my boys behind at the show grounds, but they were in the best of hands ---- HUGE thanks to everyone
(same deal, hopefully I don't forget anyone, only going off what I remember!) Shannon(thank you!), the Brentwood Stud Family,
the Matthews family, Donna Greene, John and Cheryl Downes, your help and support will never be forgotten in this time of crisis!
My boys were well cared for and were able to relax knowing mum and dad were ok, Thank you to Shannon for bringing them to
the hospital on Sat night. I spent 7 days in hospital and was under 24 hour watch for my spleen, suffering many fevers
and blood pressure drops, but all the while knowing how many people out there truly care, and were willing to help and support
us. Thank you to everyone who called the hospital, sent flowers and cards, and sent their positive vibes to me.
It has given me the strength to heal and to stay positive in this wonderful industry! Look out 2006! I will be
BACCCKKK!!!!!! As for Scoob, he was also well cared for whilst we were in hospital, thanks to everyone that fed, rugged,
watered, entertained the SCOOB! He is now home with an injury, he thought he would go out in sympathy with mum, and
put his leg thru a fence a week later! BIG DORK! SO we are both looking amazing! Looking at us both you
wouldn't know we had been at an A class show a week prior! HAHAHAHAHAA!!!!! So thank you to everyone and will
hopefully get to thank you all personally soon! xxx Simone

Birth of our much awaited Arabian WB foal!
14th Oct 2005
Amy finally gave birth to her first ever foal, by Khouros. She
delivered a stunning bay colt with long legs and the sweetest face, and he is a big smooch, he LOVES people! He is everything
we thought we would get out of this cross and will return Amy to Khouros in 2006. Will look forward to seeing him out
in the ring in 2006!!!!!!!
8th March 2005 -- Well, its all happened! 2005
NZ national Championships brought us much joy and we are proud to announce that KHOUROS is the new crowned stallion of the
Champion NZ National Championships Stallion for 2005. He was shown to perfection by Doyle Dertell of Future Farms, and
was presented and conditioned by Angela Rogers of Jameel Arabians. Mark and I had the great pleasure to witness our
boy in all his glory and we were in tears with his award! I was also honoured to show Eurelea Spanish Light to Reserve
NZ National Champion Mare for her owner Leslie Quinn, NZ National Champion Anglo Gelding, Graemar Finesse for his owners Deborah
and Alan Dixon, and Top 5 for Cyprus Alli Esperence in the huge filly classes, and Top 5 for Dundevale Fire N Flare in the
colts for their owner Penny Sutherland. Also shown was Bayzar to Top 5 in the Senior Gelding who also went on to win
