                                          HISTORY

Established in the late 70's, Boomori Park initially produced Part Arabian Galloways, then a small number of Purebred Arabians from 1980 - 1985 (mainly by outside stallions). However, Boomori Park is really about a small select and reasonably closely related number of animals (all tail-female to Rafina*(Rustem/Risala) who became the foundation bloodlines of the horses produced by the stud after 1985, and from which all individuals descend today. Upon the purchase of the tall, bay pure Crabbet stallion Chip Chase Kaiwanna in 1980, then the wonderfully bred pure Crabbet mare Crown Jewel in 1984, it was decided that to follow a pure Crabbet breeding program may be a "useful and interesting" thing to do.

Chip Chase Kaiwanna


At 16 years of age, Crown Jewel had been  prolific breeder prior to her purchase by us, with many of her foals having been championship winners. She went on to produce five more foals, all by Chip Chase Kaiwanna, four fillies and one colt (her only pure Crabbet foals). Three of these daughters are still in the stud today. Lovely ladies, and very valuable editions to our stud.

In 1987 we were very fortunate in being able to lease the well performed Top Ten mare Dandaloo Baylanie (by the Sindh* stallion Boyar) from Dandaloo Stud. She subsequently produced a filly by Chip Chase Kaiwanna, Boomori Kismet (retained) and three very good stallions (also by Chip Chase Kaiwanna), Dandaloo Khaalid (dec), Dandaloo Kadet (exp USA) and Boomori Kahlua, between 1988 - 1993.

We were so impressed by the Boyar/Kaiwanna cross that we purchased Baylanie's full-sister Dandaloo Baylina in 1988. She also bred well to Chip Chase Kaiwanna producing two colts and two fillies including Boomori Special Edition and the stallion Boomori Finale.

Following the death of Chip Chase Kaiwanna in 1994, we were very kindly offered the use of the pure Crabbet stallion Volcano by his breeder Dini Mercieca of Wyreema Arabians for the 1995 and 1996 stud seasons.

Volcano was interestingly bred and a relative outcross to the lines within the stud. While with us he sired four foals, two fillies and two colts, including the very typey Boomori Hallmark from Boomori Kismet.
We were lucky to acquire the chestnut stallion Bolshoi (full-brother to the mares Dandaloo Baylina and Dandaloo Baylanie and only pure Crabbet son of Boyar at stud). We used him primarily over our Kaiwanna/Crown Jewel daughters as the Kaiwanna/Boyar cross had worked so well in the past, and we were once again very happy with the resultant foals.

For some time we had been looking for a stallion which would provide a relative outcross to our existing lines whilst maintaining the elegance and type which we so much admired. In 2004 we had the opportunity to purchase the big bay Crabbet stallion Erin Park Nelson (Crenel x Fenwick Rosanna) a lovely rich bay foaled in 1992 and standing 15.3 hands high. He possesses correctness, good bone, a strong short back, good length of rein and lovely fine chiselled features for such a big horse. His first foals for us are showing great promise, possessing elegance, excellent confirmation and size.

It has always been the intention of this stud to remain small, only breeding one or two foals each year and concentrating on quality rather than quantity. We have always strived to produce well conformed, well balanced, versatile horses with excellent movement and temperament, and will continue to follow these ideals.

Kaiwanna was a wonderful sire producing well conformed riding types with excellent temperaments, movement and versatility. He was successful both led and under saddle, his wins including Ridden Arabian Stallion and Ridden Open Stallion at the 1983 Autumn Horse Show in Perth and Ridden Arabian Stallion Class at the 1983 Perth Royal Show.
