(Deceased - 04/01/2009 - 10/10/2012)

Springbank Arella (Ella) is the first foal bred by Springbank Performance Horses. Born 04/01/2009, by Al Nebu Fahil (frozen Semen) and out of Sudden Impact, she is the spitting image of her father and is the first known foal by Al Nebu Fahil.  

 She is a super cute filly, who has had great sucess in the limited shows she attended. At the Youngstock Show at Hawkesbury in December 2009, she won Champion Buckskin Filly/Mare, beating the two and three year old Mares. She won best Yearling Exhibit at the Buckskin Nationals in December 2009. During 2010, she has won several Buckskin yearling classes, with her most resecent achievement, winning Champion Warmblood Youngstock at the Morongla Youngstock Show on May 23, 2010.

Ella has been registered with Dilutes Australia, Buckskin NSW and the Australian Warmblood Horse Association. She is estimated to mature about 15.2hh and once under saddle will be registered with the Australian National Saddlehorse Association. Ella is expecting her full brother or sister in November 2010, and we are looking forward to seeing her strutt her stuff at several more shows later this year.

During August I made the agonising decion to sell Arella. On August 16, 2012 she was purchased by a wonderful lady, Jenny of Martindale. They quickly bonded and became a wonderful pair competing at their first show in September (see their fantastic results on the News & Results page) - Sadly in October 2012, Ella's health declined and she was diagnosed with a tumor in her abdomen. Unfortunately on October 10, 2012, Jenny made the selfless decision to have Ella humanely euthenised. This is an extremely sad loss for both Jenny & Springbank. Ella will be forever in our hearts - she was the first horse bred at Springbank and had beauty inside & out and unendless talent.  Rest in Peace my sweet girl xxxxx
