Bridget was imported from Ireland last fall with two other foals. She was carefully selected taking in consideration conformation, temperament and pedigree. She brings new bloodlines to the US, and touts a pedigree full of top European show jumping ponies. She has FIVE Grade A show jumping ponies in her first two generations.
Bridget is for sale through no fault of her own, she is a lovely filly, we purchased her along with two others, planning to resell 2 of the 3. She is a gem, and certainly will provide someone with not only a top performance pony, but a different bloodline to use in the US.
Bridget's sire, Cheeky Bobby Sparrow, is a Class 1, Grade A show jumping pony. Cheeky sires his athletic ability and superb temperament, both of which Bridget has inherited. Cheeky is by the famed Ashfield Bobby Sparrow, a Grade A pony himself, and who has sired more Grade A ponies than one can count! Cheeky's dam, Black Cherry, was also a Grade A pony prior to going to the breeding shed.
Bridget's dam, Moytura Blaithin, is a big bodied, solid mare by Ashfield Festy. Ashfield Festy has sired numerous ponies on the international circuit.
Bridget is correct, big bodied, and is currently just over 15 hds at two years. I have no doubt that this filly will make someone a successful Prelim/* mount and likely more. She is very kind, willing to please, and loves people.
Bridget attended her first show in June, the Upperville show in VA. She was mannerly and handled the traveling, temporary quarters and show atmosphere very well. She won the fillies class. She attended the Region IV Connemara Show in late June and took 4th in two very big classes.
Bridget ties, leads, loads, bathes, and has had her face clipped. She lunges and free jumps. Bridget is grey from chestnut. She would introduce new lines to the US for the discerning breeder.
