I purchased Sanlirra Ferrero as a 2yo and fell in love with Teddy the moment I saw him.He exuded quality, had incredible presence, conformation and true outstanding movement – the pinnacle of an English riding pony hunter – and exactly what I was after. He proved this, winning Champion Led Hunter Galloway, Best Novice Hunter Galloway and Reserve Champion Hunter Galloway – and under an English Judge at the 2020 Canberra Royal Show. In his limited career he has also won 2019 Reserve Champion EA National Small Hunter Galloway, Champion Hunter Galloway Canberra Royal 2022 along with Open wins at both Adelaide & Sydney Royals plus numerous HOTY titles.

Anne has always been a fabulous friend and confidant. She is passionate and proud of her progeny – always coming to the local HOTYs and agricultural shows when Sanlirra horses are competing. It has been a lovely journey with Teddy and becoming a part of the Sanlirra Family.

I have known the Sanlirra Stud Principal Anne Manley for many years and admired her breeding of exceptional quality bloodlines to produce many Sanlirra Champions.

Anne & daughter Elise have an impeccable eye for the correct cadence in a show arena champion. Having personally been involved with many Sanlirra ponies & galloways, I cannot fault the breed.

You can’t be in a hurry to produce a champion and Sanlirra ponies all hold that broad-sash quality. Congratulations Anne and Elise.

Sanlirra Stud, Anne and Elise hold a special place in my heart. I rode Vale Park Spotlight at Adelaide Royal in the 80s and had so many of his successful progeny. Today and still have Sanlirra Revelation and Sanlirra Notation.

Notation made the show ring in 2021 for Champion Novice Hack and won open Small Hack class at Brisbane Royal (EKKA) – the icing on the cake was Anne and Wayne making the trip to watch him.

And we now have Sanlirra Distinction on his way, to mature as a Galloway.

Anne is an honest, hard-working person who has bred some absolutely fabulous and successful show horses.

I had known of Anne and her highly successful Sanlirra Stud for many years prior to our purchase of Sanlirra Supernatural in 2005. We were on the search for an up-to-height colt with a powerful rear end, intelligent and kind, and that is what we got.

‘Scotty’ has been a family member since and I have developed a strong connection with Anne. She is knowledgeable, supportive, welcoming and communicative. I recommend her beautiful horses and look forward to many more years of knowing a true horse breeder.
