Loguestown Misty Don (Marty)
Eye catching grey Gelding born 8/06/2009
His Sire Gevaudan (pictured below) is a French bred Connemara who has had a prolific career in both showing and show jumping before retiring to stud at Sweet Wall. He competed at HOYS in the M&M Working Hunter twice and jumped in France before coming to England. He is a pony with a delightful temperament - a proper child's pony and at 14hh is not too large. He has great substance and good movement. He was born bay, so does not carry the cream gene and his pedigree is free of Abbeyleix Owen
His Dam Loguestown Misty Morn is a beautifully bred mare, with a combination of the best of old traditional lines and the performance aspect, her sire Murphy Rebel who has sired many Clifden winners and performance ponies too numerous to mention.
Marty is a straight, free moving, athletic youngster with a great step and with his performance pedigree on both sides he should make a fine performance pony. He is now a fully registered G1 gelding with the Connemara Society.
He was broken, lightly backed in the early part of the summer.
He was brought in to work and has been backed and ridden over the summer. He has learned quickly and has hacked out on his own on the busy roads we have here. He has been schooled in both show-jumping and cross-country locally and his season ended on a high note at our local show when he behaved really well and jumped round a small course of fences. We look forward to next season.
