AFTER all the doom and gloom that the past year has brought, there is at last some great news for Northern Ireland, particularly for pony breeders. A new pony stallion has been brought over from England that is sure to create lots of excitement among those wondering whether to cover their broodmare this year…!
‘Runnon Quick March’ is a 14hh 13-year-old bay stallion by ‘Deanhills Royal Jubilee’ and out of a Thoroughbred dam by ‘Brinston Spirit’. He is a talented competitor and, as a three-year-old, came third in the British Young Event Horse finals – in fact, he was the only pony to be put through!
Known as ‘Del Boy’ at home, he has athleticism as well as good looks and has already bred successful Show Hunter Ponies, Show Ponies, show horses and show jumping ponies.
He was purchased and brought to Northern Ireland in January this year by Ryan Anderson, who is well known to those in showing circles, as both a competitor and a judge.
Ryan is based at Gibson’s Lane Stables in Bangor, Co. Down and also has two other stallions available – a bay Sport Horse stallion called ‘Ballyloskey Courage’ and a bay traditional cob stallion called ‘Jurassic’.
More information on these stallions will be available in the forthcoming Horse Week Breeders’ Guide, but if you can’t wait until then, please contact Ryan Anderson on 07809 442487.
