Woodlander Sir Gorgeous is an ultra talented pony stallion with the whole package. To begin he gained an Elite BEF Futurity Premium (Dressage) as a foal with a score of 9.12, and began his BD career in 2016 as a 4 year old and already has a fantastic BD record. At such a young age he has already achieved a huge amount in the dressage arena claiming Reserve Champion 4 year old Young Dressage Pony in 2016. Judy Harvey awarded him two 9s, one 9 for his trot and one 9 for his amazing attitude, along with an 8.5 for his uphill canter. Sir Gorgeous then went on to become Regional Novice Champion at Addington Manor in February 2017. As a 5 year old pony he beat 41 other combinations, many with huge more amount of experience, to win this prestigious title to qualify for the BD Winter Championships at Hartpury.
He has now started competing at Elementary level and has scored 75%, 75% and 76% in his first three tests qualifying him for the Summer Regional Championships 2017 at Elementary Gold. Sir Gorgeous may have the stunning pony looks but moves like a horse and needs to be seen to be believed. Due to this he is now being aimed at Grand Prix, instead of Pony FEI Medium tests, as there are no weaknesses in his work and is extremely talented for the higher levels of dressage.
2017 will be Sir Gorgeous’ first season at stud. Sir Gorgeous will be suitable for all types of pony mare to produce outstanding sports ponies. He has incredible movement along with an outstanding easy temperament to produce successful Champion ponies.
