Meet the Barnes Crew!
Liana is currently competing with her Kings Town Gideon (pictured below) at Advanced level (HRCAV)/Elementary (EA), as a combination they have come through from Level 5 to Advanced HRCAV. They are exrtemely competitive in Advanced & now they are competing in EA Medium with fantastic results
Liana was selected to be on the Mitavite AOR (Amateur Owner Rider) Squad for Victoria
She is not only a rider but a level assessor & is also a HRCAV judge for levels 3-5
We love to support grass roots competitors who give back to our sports
Liana also has a striking young black gelding called Callum Park Zonette who will be no doubt turning heads very soon in the ring
Simone bought Kendalee Everest (Eddie) almost 6 years ago, from her breeder, after falling off her previous horse and smashing her arm in 9 places. A fresh start was needed!
Eddie is a 17hh Holsteiner mare. Together they have worked through a few hurdles- Simone’s operations to reconstruct her arm, Eddie also had throat surgery, and then Simone broke her arm again!
Slowly but surely this team have worked their way from level 3 to level 1.
Simone & Eddie the ultimate all rounders, giving Dressage (level 1) showing (level 1) combined training (level 2) and Showjumping (level 2) a go.
Together they won TTT combined Training this year, have won showing high points and dressage jackpots as well, culminating in being the Top Ten combined training winner, and the reserve champion adv/level 1 HRCAV rider.
In the past 12 months they have pointed to Advanced & have begun competing medium EA with great results

I run a dressage training/sales business and boutique Hanoverian breeding stud in the Brisbane Valley, in QLD.
After a couple of working student stints in Germany, I was absolutely hooked on dressage, and after completing my criminology degree (much to my parents horror!) I started my small business 5 years ago. I’m very blessed to do what I love every single day! I’ve also got a keen interest in all things Hanoverian, and in my spare time you’ll find me trawling stallion videos looking for the girls next husbands!
I’ve currently got four riding horses of my own. DJ (Remi Double Jeopardy) is my main man, competing medium and having lots of fun training the higher movements. My two middle children Oscar and Daisy are both at elem, although Miss Daisy’s preferred career is a supermodel. You’ll often catch her sporting the latest collection from Barnes and Stable and just generally being fabulous Ruby is my home bred 3yo, and I’m really looking forward to the journey of training a horse I’ve bred through the levels.
I take a lot of pride in my horses care and presentation, both at home and at competitions, and I am feeling SO privileged to be on the Barnes and Stable team. Those that know me, know apart from being a lover of chestnuts and bling, know that I’m obsessed with everything matching (OCD alert ) and ROSE GOLD I love the Eskadron collections in particular, for stunning, long wearing tack, and my horses all have their own custom made Heike ear bonnets (in rose gold of course!).
I want to take this opportunity to thank Louise for her support and for the opportunity to represent all her beautiful brands on my team
