Mayfield Farm was established by Kerry Mack as a professional agistment centre and Warmblood stud. Our aim is to breed horses that can excel at the highest level of competition. We have selected bloodlines for their temperament, conformation and aptitude for the work and that special quality that the Europeans call “rideability”.
Buckskin pony dressage colt for sale! the dam is a FULL sister to Mayfield Limelight (Limelight is currently training GP dressage with fantastic natural aptitude for the piaffe) so this little guy has all the makings of a dressage pony superstar. This is also the last foal of welsh Tabayne White Knight. We chose this stallion for the balance, quick hind leg and wonderful temperament and trainability. We think this could be a pony for Grand Prix
3yo warmblood mare Mayfield Whistler is by imported dressage stallion Whisper IV out of a Mayfield Pzazz x Calypso Classic mare. Very easy to deal with both on the ground and under-saddle. lovely nature and temperament. good work ethic. very balanced canter and great overtrack in the walk. Soft snaffle mouth and forward off the leg. All the makings for a quality, reliable, competitive dressage horse with the potential to go all the way to the top
A beautiful gelding for sale by Diamond Hit (Don Schuffo/Ramino/Donnerhall) out of a Mayfield Pzazz (Jazz) x Calypso Classic mare. Diamond Hit was of course reserve world young horse champion as a 5yo, and went on to campaign at Grandprix and has sired many successful dressage horses around the world. This classy colt is bred to be a superstar!
Currently placing in CDI-W grand prix's in CDI's all around Australia, Mayfield Pzazz was purchased as a ‘just started' young colt from Mary Hanna. From the first ride it is easy to feel that he was special, he has a special bond with humans and wants to please.
This Australian Grand Prix champion carries the bloodlines and characteristics of the most successful Dressage horses in the world today. He was undoubtedly the ‘best performed' stallion to be imported into Australia and gives breeders here the chance to upgrade the local gene pool with an infusion from the most respected and influential Dressage horses of modern times.

I read a lot of books and do like to share some of other people’s ideas that I find are helpful. Mark Rashid is a well known American trainer and writer initially from a western orientation. I have enjoyed several of his books but particularly enjoyed reading about what he had learned from the Japanese Samurai traditional self defense discipline of Aikido. He describes the master demonstrating a defensive manoeuvre, the students having great difficulty understanding how he was achieving the results. The master explained that he wasn't moving the outside of his body, only the inside. Now this is exactly what we must do to convey our more subtle aids to the horse. The horse is able to attune himself very finely to what we do on the inside of our bodies.
Last time we talked about training that aims to make the work like “A DAY AT THE OFFICE”, Routine, and “A PIECE OF CAKE”, Easy. Fundamentally this is about understanding what is the smallest step towards what you are wanting to train, rewarding by removing pressure when your horse makes a reasonable attempt, then repeating. Then when this little bit is easy and routine build on it by asking just a little bit more. Last time we took the example of lengthening and collecting the steps.
I have written before about making your horse a team player. You can train your horse so that he is more likely to want to do what you ask. Of course your horse would prefer to spend his day eating grass than being ridden, but when I ride I want my horses to want to do what I ask.
