Recently crowned Supreme Champion,  Fontainebleau July 2012.  Graded ‘First Class’ at the Shetland Stallion Classification at Haras du Pin in March 2009.

Robin is a fantastic little sporty pony, with a great temperament, lots of style and super movement. He is ‘Standard’ size, measuring 106.5cm and grey/roan in colour. Robin competed for the first time last summer and had great success, 1st Senior Male at Aurouer, 2nd at Solognpony, 2nd at Lignieres en Berry in a very impressive line up and 5th at the  French National Championships. Robin was broken to ride last summer by our daughter Elyssia and we are extremely proud of his progress. He qualified “Qualifee” at Solognpony 2011 for the ‘Tests de Loisirs’, “Selection” at Europoney 2012 and “Selection” at National level at Solognpony 2012. This is a course of challenges to assess a ponies suitablility/calm nature  to obtain an independant and secure exterior mount. There are challenges such as a passage through water, a bridge crossing, a log to jump, load and unload into a horse box, pick up the 4 feet, mount and dismount without moving off, road signs to name just a few.  Robin competed at his first jumping competition at the SHN in Fontainebleau in January 2012 with my daughter Rhianna, where they achieved a super clear round, well done to the couple. Robin currently has 3 filly foals, April Seven 2010 (by Kiss Me), Butterfly des Pommiers 2011 and Crumble des Pommiers 2012 by our Mini des Pommiers (currently in foal to Robin and due in July).  The foals are very sweet natured,  sporty and love children. They are well handled, vaccinated, and well behaved with the blacksmith.
