About Petra

Petra is a top quality Show Champion filly following in her big sisters foot steps, she is a true bay with black points which is pleasing.

She has been slowly backed and ridden on occasions over the summer (2013) but has not had the attention she deserves with the other ponies taking precedence over her, at least for this season. She has worked well under Lynseys' excellent training and has now a good base to start from early next season.

Petra is developing into a really good quality mare and is becoming more and more like her dam everyday. She was officially measured for the first time in January 2014 as 13.3hh which we were happy with as we love small, traditional type connemaras. We are excited to see how petra develops in 2014 as she starts her ridden career and have high hopes for her.
