Sire: 

Halifax is one of Germany's most prolific Welsh Section B stallions with at least 22 approved sons (including 9 Champion & Reserve Champion Stallions) and at least 16 State Premium daughters and he has had a huge influence on German Riding Pony breeding. An Elite Weser-Ems stallion, he passed his performance test in 1999 scoring 9 for handling, ability to perform and jumping ability and his rideability, trot and canter were all rewarded with 8s.

 

Halifax was the Section B Champion Stallion at the 2003 Weser-Ems-Stallion show and declared Premium stallion in 2004. Halifax has sired successful jumping & dressage ponies.  The jumping ponies include 2014 Bundeschampion High Noon 48, 2009 Bundeschampion Haribo; 2005 Vice Bundeschampion Hollywood, international pony Hightrick plus international dressage pony, Harry Potter.

 

Halifax's sire, Hasko was a successful driving pony who also sired 6 other licensed stallions including the 2007 Bundeschampion (jumping) Handsome Boy WE.  His Elite Head Studbook dam, Steehorst Love Bird also produced another approved stallion and a State Premium mare as well as being Champion at many breed shows.

 

Dam: 

Magic Moments, who was a premium foal and received a Gold Medal as 4 year old, was primarily a ridden pony and only had 5 foals in total. Two of her colts are successful in France, one as jumping pony and the younger one as breeding stallion & dressage/jumping Pony. Her only daughter, That's My Love, is a State Premium Mare who did well in her ridden performance test and also won her class at the Weser-Ems Elite Mare Show in 2008.   Magic Moment's dam, Nuja is the full sister of the approved stallion Nurejew who was Vice Bundeschampion in 1997 and then won Team Bronze at the Pony European Dressage Championships in 1998 & 2001 and Team Silver in 2000. 

 

Damsire: 

Marsvogel xx was one of the most influential Thoroughbred stallions in German Riding Pony breeding. He has sired Licensing Champions and lots of successful Sport ponies including the 1997 Bundeschampion (jumping) Maiblume. He is also the damsire of the 2005 Bundeschampion (Dressage) Nip Tuck, licensed stallions Debussy AT, Destino, Don Joshi II & Don Joshi AT who was Bundeschampion in 2002 then won Team Bronze at the 2007 Pony European Dressage Championships.

 

Performance

Platinum Honey’s Hope (Harry) was licensed by the Verband der Pony und Kleinpferdezüchter Hannover at their October 2012 Körung, with excellent X rays, before moving to the UK in 2013. He was presented at the September 2013 WBS-UK stallion grading where he was also licensed.

 

Harry has spent 2014 being produced slowly and correctly both in hand and ridden by joint owner, dressage trainer Bruce King. Harry has attended a couple of competitions recently to show him the sights, before affiliating him, and he has won or been placed at over 73% each time.

 

He is already schooling all of the FEI movements at home and will start his BD career in 2015.

Offspring/Breeding Advice

Harry is a fabulous athletic modern pony stallion, with a magnificent walk, powerful and elevated trot and an exceptional canter.

 

He has a really sensible temperament, coupled with amazing trainability, which is so important for producing children's ponies and sport horses.

 

Harry is extremely willing to learn and also has great jumping ability.  All of these factors combine to make him a suitable breeding stallion for all three disciplines.

 

His first foal in the UK secured a First premium at the BEF Futurity in 2014 and has his wonderful, unflappable temperament.
