NEW -- Sassafrass was SITE CHAMPION PONY MARE at her Sept 8th, 2013 Keuring with an excellent score of 7.3! SF Sassafrass is a May 2010 mare by Smoke Tree Snapdragon, out of the children's hunter mare Rosie Time. Continuing our young Welsh B stallion Smoke Tree Snapdragon's brilliant career as a sire is this flashy and correct large pony mare, who looks to be a top prospect for the hunter ring and breeding. Like many of the Snapdragon offspring, Sassafrass sports tall socks and a blaze!.
Sassafrass is not only an eye catcher in her type, but her movement will knock your socks off! She has impressive shoulder freedom, making for a gorgeous trot, as well as a balanced and uphill canter, and relaxed walk. This is a mare that will win the hacks.
Sassafrass is beautifully made, correct and feminine. She stands 13.3 and 1/2 at 3 years of age and we expect her to finish at 14.1 hands. Sassafrass shows lovely, snappy hunter form over fences in her free jumping, and there is no doubt this will be a top pony hunter mare, competitive in the biggest shows. In work this young mare is willing and learns well. She is lightly started under saddle and ready to go on.
Sassafrass' siblings are winning in the H/J ring. Her 1/2 brother Le Blanco (Le Mode x Rosie Time) is jumping the Mini-Prix's in Florida for his owner Chantel Hisaw. Two other half sisters are successful hunters, in Colorado and Illinois.
Sassafrass has German Riding Pony papers and brand from the Rheinland Pfalz-Saar International, and looks to also be an excellent prospect for breeding - she comes from a family of beautiful-moving, amateur-friendly ponies that jump.
