Vale John Edwards

It is with great sadness that the QLD AWHA learned of the passing of John Edwards on Wednesday 12th June.

John held many positions with the AWHA, including serving our members as an AWHA Mare Classifier and a Federal Director. John was a committee member of many years standing, and was always willing to help with QLD AWHA events, and to share his vast knowledge and experience with our members.

John and Bev Edwards were instrumental in promoting the Australian warmblood breed in QLD, nationally, and internationally, through John and Bev’s Warmblood Stud – Jaybee Farm.

Jaybee Farm located in the beautiful Lockyer Valley in QLD was established by John and Bev, with well over 300 horses registered with the AWHA. Their breeding standards were high with an uncompromising view when it comes to conformation, soundness, athletic ability, and temperament.

The establishment of Jaybee Farm and the progeny that came out of this endeavour has led to the improvement of the Warmblood breed throughout Australia. Jaybee progeny have successfully competed at both Dressage and Showjumping across all levels – including internationally.

In recognition for John’s service to the Association, John was granted AWHA Honorary Life membership in 2011.

The QLD AWHA Committee wish to pass on our sincerest condolences to John’s family and friends.

John will be dearly missed, and his legacy to the Australian Warmblood will continue through the progeny of Jaybee Farm horses.
