Medium (13.1 h) German Riding Pony foaled in 2013. Summer is a hunter/jumper prospect jumping courses with consistent lead changes and ready to begin a rated show circuit.
Summer Solstice (“Summer”) is a gorgeous pony hunter prospect. Bred and raised at Maefield Farm, Summer made her showing debut in the 2016 Young Horse Show as a 3-yo, garnering scores above 7.5 for conformation, free jumping, and under saddle. Summer is a registered German Riding Pony with left hip brand.
Sire: The gorgeous black Hanoverian stallion, Ridley (Rotspon-EM Wiccan/Walt Disney I), comes from a long line of top performance horses. Ridley has an extensive and successful show record in dressage, with numerous high score awards. While he is best known as a dressage horse, Ridley also has a super jump. He has sired numerous champion hunter ponies and horses. Ridley’s character is wonderful, as evident in the gentle and playful manner he exhibited in his free-movement videos. His attitude and presence were what first attracted our attention to this lovely boy, and his daughter Summer is very much like him.
Dam: Summer’s dam is our purebred Caspian mare Kristull Sumara. Sumara is a beautifully conformed pony with an excellent topline and lovely head and neck. We consider Sumara to be one of our best Caspian broodmares, and she has produced another lovely “mini-me” in Summer.
Summer Solstice is ready for a show home and is eligible for the green pony hunters. Her beautiful conformation and stylish movement will keep her in the top ribbons wherever she goes. And we expect Summer will go far.
