Summerwood Farm has several top quality prospects and green ponies that have been raised by children. All of our ponies are bred as division prospects, with temperments to be a child's partner.
1. Summerwood's Rock N' Roll - 2014 medium purebred welsh gelding. (Smoke Tree CC McGee x Tantallon Spring Melody) Elvis is a beautiful liver chestnut with just enough white. Big boned and big bodied, measures 13.1 1/2. Quiet, easy going pony. Had 3 months professional training with Andrea Barr and is now being ridden by my 11 year old daughter. Lightly started over crossrails. Has shown on the line, most recently at Devon as a 2 yo. Would be a great project for a child working with a trainer. He will be a very useful pony when he is finished as he will put up with all kinds of kid shenanigans, and he has that temperment that will make him a great teacher. Located in Sarasota, FL. Priced upper 4- very low 5 figures.
2. Summerwood's Believe in Me - 2014 medium chestnut half welsh gelding by Sugarbrook Blue Pacific out of Catalina by *Carolina's Red Fox. Full brother to prolific winners Benjamin Buttons, Sugarbrook Game Plan, Sugarbrook Boogieboard, Sugarbrook Burnside. This pony is a total natural, he understands his job and does it very well even at his young age. He has a wonderful, confidence building canter that is easy to sit and easy to adjust. Despite only being lightly jumped due to his age, he jumps in perfect form, never jumps the child out of the tack, and naturally adjusts well to get his distances. He also has an easy, quiet lead change. He measures just under 13 hands, he will never be a big medium but he more than makes up for it in his outstanding rideability and kindness. The medium striding is easy for him. He prefers a light handed, soft ride. Only offered to a home that will respect his age, keep him going along slowly, and let him develop into the star he will be. I would also consider a lease to the right child, or purchase 5 figures. Located in Sarasota, FL.
3. Summerwood's Mariposa-2013 large dark chestnut half welsh filly by Land's End Monarch out of Two Sox (TB). Mia is an extremely athletic, high quality young filly with the potential to go to the top of the division. She is very easy to ride, extremely well educated on the flat, and has a lovely, slow jump that is beautiful to watch. She has had almost a year of training with Andrea Barr in TN. Very serious division prospect for large greens 2019. I would prefer to lease her to the right child for the year to preferably do the children's. Would entertain a sale also to the right situation. Located in Bristol, TN.
4. Summerwood's Dream Come True - 2011 dapple grey small green by *Telynau Royal Charter out of Bendith Artemis (Cloe Olympian). 12.1 3/4 Rosie is a gorgeous model, lovely mover, and has great form over fences. She qualified for PF in 2017 but has been reinstated. She has shown quite a bit in hand and under saddle, but has had limited o/f show experience, so with some miles and the right child she could be a real threat in the small greens. She is excellent at the shows and is very brave. Lease or sale. Located in Sarasota, FL.
5. Summerwood's Royal Blue - 2008 13h. half welsh gelding by Sugarbrook Blue Pacific out of Bendith Artemis (Cloe Olympian). Blue is a stunning pony, looks like every little girls dream pony. He is kind and always the same pony every time you take him out. Charming, people loving personality. He is very easy to ride on the flat, with a gorgeous canter, however he does prefer an educated rider. Handles the shows very well despite limited showing. He will do little crossrails very quietly and will just step over them if the child wants, so he would suit ss with a confident kid. Capable of doing children's now and the division with a little more mileage and the right child. For lease only. Located in Sarasota, FL.
6. Summerwood's Blue Steel - 2014 gelding by Sugarbrook Blue Pacific out of Bendith Artemis (Cloe Olympian). Full brother to the above pony. Everyone always notices Trouble, he is a total ham, will run to the fence to see you every time. He has personality plus! Trouble will be a beautiful model like his brother, and he has lovely movement and quality. Has not yet been started under saddle due to the fact that I happen to have a ton of green ponies at this moment, and he needed a little more time to mature physically. I am offering him only until I get him under saddle then he won't be offered again until he is showing. This pony will be a division type pony. Located in Bristol, TN.
7. In utero offering: Colt or filly option by Blue Who out of Tantallon Walkin N' Rhythm (14 1/2 hands) by Lemontree Sea Captain out of Benlea Tempo. Dam is full sister to winning medium Heart to Forget. We have had two foals from this cross, the first one we unfortunately lost, and the second one sold within 24 hrs of being on the market at a month old. Both were freakishly good movers. Molly produces huge bodied, big boned, correct foals with quiet, easy going temperments. We expect this foal to be a big medium.
