STALLIONS

 

 

The eight stallions below passed assessment at the Main Grading in 2013 and were either given permanent graded status or awarded a license for an initial period.  Licensed stallions have their performance and/or progeny monitored by the SPSS. Fourteen stallions were presented on the day and the grading judges were Mrs Celia Clarke, Herr Hans-Heinrich Bruening and Mr Geoff Glazzard.

 

The SPSS 2013 Stallion Champion was the 2 year old, Woodlander Wales.  Wales was bred in Britain by Lynne Crowden and carries the prefix of her Woodlander Stud which is renown for breeding warmblood horses.   Woodlander Wales is registered in the WBS-UK Pony Studbook and is by the graded (life approved Hannovarian & WBS-UK) Hannoverian, Woodlander Wavavoom (Weltregent H x Longchamp).  Seven year old Wavavoom was also bred by Lynne and, having been very successful in young dressage horse classes, he is now competing (and winning) at Advanced Medium level.  Wales's dam, Drysiog Helen is a WPCS Sec C by Talon Teifion.

 

As a foal, Wales was the 2011 SPSS In-Hand Show Champion and was awarded an Elite premium (with a score of 9.25) at his futurity evaluation and was the highest scoring pony that year.  Wales was also presented at the 2013 Futurity Evaluation, where he was equally successful, scoring 9.30 for another Elite and again being the highest scoring pony.

 

Reserve Champion was the 3 year old, Higherspen Show Time. Another British-bred pony, Show Time was bred by Jane Dewhurst, who still owns him.  Show Time is by the Dutch part bred Welsh (NWPCS Sec K) and SPSS graded stallion Eindershof Jamai out of the NRPS mare Shannaya Bayloveny (Bayloveny x Casper).  A part bred Arab, Shannaya Bayloveny graded into the SPSS Head Studbook in 2007.

Mares

 

At the main grading, all 5 mares forward graded into one of the SPSS Studbooks depending on grading score, performance record and completeness of pedigree.  The judges were Herr Hans-Heinrich Bruening and Mrs Celia Clarke. 

 

The Mare Champion was the 4 year old British bred Bernwode Golden Delicious, who is known at home as "Piglet" due to her appearance at birth.  Piglet was bred by Sarah Steggall and she is the second SPSS Mare Champion by the SPSS Elite stallion, Bernwode Brokat (Brillant x Diamant II), with the first being Mademoiselle in 2009.  Piglet scored over 83% and thus went in to the prestigious SPSS Head Studbook.  The judges were particularly impressed by Pigley's temperament and gave her a rarely awarded 20/20 and she also got 9.5/10 for her flatwork under saddle and 9/10 for general impression.  Piglet is now owned by Sarah and Caroline Hunt as is a future mount for Caroline's young daughter.

 

The Reserve Champion mare, Escley Trump Card, also scored over 80% and went into the Head Studbook.  Trump Card is a 6 year old Welsh Mountain Pony (WPCS Sec A) and she was bred by Mrs R C Hunter.  Now owned by Kerensa Cobbledick of Trevoulter Barton Stud, Trump Card also impressed the judges with her temperament, scoring 18/20.

 

The remaining 3 mares forward at the grading all went into the Main Studbook as they had 2 generations of pedigree and scored over 70%.

Our congratulations to all the successful mare owners and breeders.
