National Dressage Pony Cup 2013

Clinic wrapup is coming, but first, a little family bragging a la Alanna:

Picture is from 2011 I think.
Castleberry's Delight, Connor's full sister, is the 2013 Third Level AA Dressage Pony Cup Champion!  This follows NDPC Championship wins at 3rd Level and 1st Level in previous years, and a USDF All-Breed Award at Training Level.  Way to go, Delight, and congratulations to Winterlake Tristan as well, a Welsh Cob whose NDPC results Alanna wrote about here.  Go Cobs!


  1. I can't say enough good things about the National Dressage Pony Cup! We met the greatest people and saw the most wonderful ponies! I don't think I've ever seen to many ponies gathered in one place before. I can't wait to go back next year and know several ponies to cheer on!
    Of course, I'm just as excited to now be riding a card-carrying pony and NDPC Reserve Champion in her own right! Go Ponies!!
    Will you be joining us next year? ;)

  2. I saw a picture of Castleberry's Delight competing that Cardi's owner took. She's beautiful and I didn't realize she was Conner's full sister. Too cool!

    1. I haven't seen a photo of her competing, so I went to stalk Cynthia's Facebook after I saw this (I'm not friends with her, but I think Connor's breeder is.). How cool, thanks for letting me know! Her neck has totally changed shape.

    2. She looked really good in Cindy's photo. That's really neat that Connor has a full sibling out competing (and doing well). Emi has two full siblings but one is 3 and the other is not competing yet.

  3. I saw her too and wondered if she was related to Connor! I wish my 'pony' was eligible :(
