2011 German Riding Pony stallion
by Smoke Tree Snapdragon
bred by Solomon Farm
SF Spirit was the keuring champion colt and looks to be an important addition to North America's riding pony stallion line-up. He offers a modern, leggy profile, superbly fluid and swingy, off-the-ground movement, and a kind, willing character, all in a glowing buckskin color! Spirit is the first licensed son of Welsh B sport pony stallion Smoke Tree Snapdragon. Beautiful, generous, and level-headed, this young stallion has the talent to perform in any of the sport disciplines.Although young at his presentation, Spirit was licensed by the RPSI into Pony Stud Book 1 with scores of 8 for his canter and type. He recently began his dressage career and has won several classes with scores in the 70s.
Talent for sport and breeding runs in the family - Smoke Tree Snapdragon is a top producer of Gold Premium German Riding Pony foals. Spirit's damsire, Le Mode, showed to FEI level dressage and produces top-level hunters, jumpers, dressage and event horses, and his daughters are outstanding producers. Lelady's dam Aunt Ettie (Kate) was a champion children's hunter in California.
Spirit's first foals, SF Spirit Moon and SF Spirit Dream, born in 2014, and SF Spirit Luck in 2015, have all scored Gold Premium - and all of his foals to date have been buckskin!
