The final of the South Essex Insurance Brokers/British Breeding Young Horse Evaluations 2006 pony series 2006 secured top guest slot on the first day of the Sports Pony Studbook’s in hand and grading show at the Heart of England Equestrian centre on Saturday 21 October.

 

In the first pony final of this series, the section having just been introduced this year, the top 4 qualifiers were invited back from the 6 regional qualifying evaluations and showed their paces, in hand, first of all, to evaluators Claire Ballantyne and Celia Clarke.

 

Horses then entered the main ring to ride a sequence of movements demonstrating paces and transitions which were all executed beautifully by these four year old ponies. The show jumping pony then tackled a course of 90cm fences set out by BSJA’s Geoff Glazzard who joined the in hand evaluators for this performance phase.

 

Top honours this year went to Nicki Parnell’s bay dressage pony mare Conchita by Constantin out of Moonlight by Michaelangelo. Ridden by Nicki’s daughter Sarah, Conchita’s overall score was 85.65%. Conchita also secured an Elite Mare Diploma for her final score.

A very close second was British bred dressage pony Tynycae Sandmartin, by Wurlitzer out of Tynycae Goldfinch by Sarnau Valentine owned by Serena Pincus and bred by Serena and her mother Mrs S Morgan and ridden by Kara Smith with a final score of 85%.Sandmartin was also the winner of the Central Prefix Register (CPR) award for the highest qualifying score held by any horse or pony with a CPR registered prefix in this year’s qualifying evaluations.

 

Third placed and top potential show jumping pony was Nicola Slater’s Machno Showtime bred by Merion Jones at the Machno Stud and by the 2005 top sire of performance ponies Carregcoch Bleddyn, out of Machno Syndod by Oerfa Guto with 83.9%.

 

Said British Breeding’s Jan Rogers “we have seen some super ponies today, all of them slowly and carefully improved since the qualifiers which is exactly what we are looking for in this series”.
