2021 Arabian Derivative Ambassador – Gleniph Tiramisu

Tiramisu (affectionately known as “Sue”) won her first supreme champion at her very first show – the Petstock Foal Show – as a weanling and has never looked back in her performance career. She has been a multi supreme championship winner both led and ridden at countless shows across Australia.

As an open horse, Sue has won countless Champion open show Hunter Galloway awards, and has placed highly in Hunter Galloways at the Melbourne Royal, Adelaide Royal and Geelong Royal. She is also a multi Royal champion led and ridden buckskin.

As a dressage horse, Sue has excelled and has been in the top 5 horses in the country in young horse pony dressage at Australia’s premier dressage competition – Dressage with the Stars – both as a 4 y.o and 5 y.o. horse and is now aiming for the 6 y.o class this season.

Sue has represented the Arabian horse breed in open class events with great success demonstrating the natural ability of Arabian horse to perform at the highest level of local, regional and national competition. Tiramisu displays the beauty of Arabian horses in form, and the elegance and power of extended, energetic movement complimented by comprehension and alertness to the task at hand – be it led or ridden. As a ridden horse, Sue demonstrates controlled movement achieved through the ability of the Arabian horse to absorb and display precision training and education – a breed characteristic of these intelligent horses.

Tiramisu genuinely enjoys and thrives on exercise, training and competition and demonstrates a real closeness with rider and owner. She is a friend to all and well known within the Arabian horse community.

Through her performances within the Arabian community and the wider open community, Sue acts as an Ambassador for all Arabian horses within the broader horse world and represents the breed at the highest standard
