Summerwood's Royal Blue
2008 Registered Half-Welsh Gelding, lifetime USEF


Sugarbrook Blue Pacific (Gayfield's Vida Blue) x Bendith Artemis (Cloe Olympian)
This fabulous medium gelding makes us very proud to say we bred him. He has a gorgeous, typey head with tiny, turned in ears and big soft eyes.   He is very correct.  His pedigree speaks for itself with many of the big names in hunter breeding right up close in his pedigree.  His sire is by the legendary Gayfield's Vida Blue and his dam is by Cloe Olympian, who is a prolific sire of hunter pony greats.  Blue has easy, wonderful hunter movement and the signature "Vida" canter.   He has three crosses to the influential sire Findeln Blue Danube up close in his pedigree.   If we had had the facilities for a stallion, this pony would have been kept a breeding stallion, he is that special.
  Blue loves attention and adores children.  Absolutely safe for any child to handle, tack up, and catch.  He is kind and sensitive with a very trainable temperament but since he is still a bit green and is a sensitive type of a pony he does require a quiet, confident rider.  No naughty pony tricks or bad behavior, ever.  It is just not his nature and he has been brought along slowly and carefully to preserve that.   He is a pleasure to have in the barn and he is usually very low in the pasture.  His huge canter stride makes the division striding very easy for him. This pony never says "no".  He has a huge heart and is honest and loving.  Truly a best friend type of a pony who will only be sold to the right situation for him.  Shown locally and handles the show scene very well.  Eligible green.
