HELICON CHARMED I’M SURE

We wish every success to the daughters of Nelly Ryan and Debbie Wilson in MD with this brilliant pony!

This small dark grey 2005 Section B Welsh filly shows the good looks and athleticism one would expect from a daughter of GlanNant Country Roads (by *Cusop Sparklet) and Patchwork Dragon Charmer (GlanNant Epic out of a GlanNant Tango mare).  A 3/4 brother is Dragonheart, the eye-catching buckskin gelding who was 8th in 2008 USEF natl small green standings - and a 3/4 sister is the beautiful Patchwork Strawberry who has been a Finals ribbon winner on mulitple occasions as well as Zone 5 small pony champion.

This captivating mare is everyone's favorite due to her excellent conformation, dappled coat, and striking movement! Charmed has been professionally started under saddle.

2006 WOW August Show – Winner 2 and Under Section B Welsh Filly, Reserve Grand Champion Section B at her first show.
The judge commented on her excellent movement saying “She was on her own Magic Carpet Ride!"

Charmed has all the ingredients to be a "famous" small pony hunter - she just gets more and more impressive! Currently preparing for the 2010 show season under saddle.

 

 


IT'S A FILLY! HELICON COUNTRY ROSE

We can hardly wait to see this lovely pony as she is trained to do her pony hunter job for the Ryan and Wilson girls!

3/4 Welsh 1/4 Arabian - 2007 full sister to superstar Gracefully Yours who was Res Champion in Small Greens at the 2009 USEF Pony Hunter Finals. Her score of 1025 was 8th of the entire Finals of over 400 ponies!

GlanNant Country Roads is her sire and her dam, Cat Creek Rose of Grace, is by GlanNant Epic so there's lots of national champion performance blood going back to *Cusop Sparklet, *Farnley Lustre, *Coed Coch Prydyddes, and more. Come see her in Illinois.

HELICON PATHFINDER

Chad and Jensen Oness of MN came home from a Neil Young concert near Chicago with a Christmas surprise for wife and mother Beth!

2006 ¾ Welsh gelding by GlanNant Country Roads x Cat Creek Rose of Grace - by GlanNant Epic.

This is a full brother to the flamboyant mover, Helicon Country Grace, who was USEF Zone 4 (FL) Champion in 3 Year Old Pony Hunter Breeding - and to the lovely filly, H Country Rose. They are by GlanNant Country Roads who was a Supreme Champion Welsh and an incomparable driving pony in his youth - and then at 19 and 20, the WPCSA National Hunter Champion 12.2 and Under!  Their dam, Cat Creek Rose of Grace by GlanNant Epic (consistently in Top Ten of USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sires), has also produced two by Helicon Corsair, one was ASPR IL Site Champion at 3 months of age, and the other is pictured at the upper right of this page, jumping 3'6".

In addition to his presence, eagerness to please, correct underpinnings, and height (12.3 1/2 as a yearling), "Hawkeye" has special BLING - eyes of black and pearl!  He is eye-catching indeed!  Let him be your performance champion!

This athletic youngster thinks it is TIME to run full tilt, TIME to swap leads, TIME to do airs above the ground.  He has a big dark eye, long shapy neck, a blockbuster rear end, and ultra correct underpinnings -- truly a class act as one visitor put it.  This 2003 gelding by GlanNant Country Roads (*Cusop Sparklet) out of our Findeln Blue Danube grand-daughter, Rollingwoods Gin-N-Tonic, he is royally bred for appearance, presence, and performance! TIME, a 3/4 Welsh, 1/8 TB, 1/8 Arabian looks to be a medium.

HELICON PLATINUM BLONDE

Now back in Florida where she was foaled, Blondie was purchased during the High Prairie Circuit at Parker, CO by pony guru, JENNIFER BIELING, of Wellington, FL.

HELICON PLATINUM BLONDE   1999 pale palomino filly   (Ch. *Smoke Tree Silver Dragon X Helicon All Smiles by GlanNant Epic)  This WPCSA registered three-quarter Welsh, one-quarter Arabian is bred for beauty, movement, and performance.   She is affectionate and easy to be around.  This is not the typical blonde as she is very intelligent.  One of her favorite childhood pursuits was turning on the water faucet so she could play!   We have had to remove the handle so she doesn't create another "lake" in the field.  

"Blondie" has been brought along carefully and is well-started under saddle. Select her to be your child's eye-catching mount in medium pony hunters or for any ridden or driven pursuit.

At the 2002 Pony Hunter Finals Sale a 4 year old very similar palomino half sister (same sire) sold for $45,000 !

Molly Rinedollar, Trainer/Agent for Helicon Oaks, George & Thalia Gentzel.

Now doing well in medium greens for new owner, Leigh Lucas of Texas.
