Just Like That
** UPDATE - LEASED - Specail Thanks to Cathy Dow and best of luck with Ghetti!

For Lease Only

14.1 3/4 Large pony gelding. The PERFECT pony from walk-trot through the childrens ponies. Great lead change, very good mover, zero prep. The judges love him! 'Ghetti' will be a barn favorite anywhere!

Knock My Soxs Off
***UPDATE - Leased!!! Congratulations to Olivia Notman!

10 year old 14.2 hh bay pony gelding. "Remy" is the pony of a lifetime (or at least for your entire pony career). He took his rider from SS to the Large ponies in less than 8 months, and they tri-colored at almost every A horse show that year (2008)...fast forward 3 more years he also took her to Devon, Harrisburg and Washington in 2011 (where he was 6th in the hack). The pair of Angela and Remy have been champion or reserve at over 30 A and AA shows in their 4 years together. They have also won several year end pony medal finals (NCHJA and PSJ). There are not many large ponies that have the personality, the movement, the conformation and the athleticism that this pony has. He has been to pony finals every year since 2007 (where he placed 7th in the hack), and he has many many more years left. Low 6 figures, leases will be considered.

Rollingwoods Unequaled

(Rollingwoods Easy as L LOM x *Varndell Desiree) 2000 Section B Bay Mare – 14.1 h – This mare definitely lives up to her name! This pony has a huge record and too many accomplishments to list. She is a favorite for sure (which is why she will only ever be leased!) She brought a timid child from Short Stirrup to a very brave and successful division pony rider! They won the local pony medal, qualified for the USEF pony medal finals and the regular large pony hunters two years in a row. They probably won over 50 champions and reserve champions in the 3 years they were together. She jumps a 10+++ and has a great change. Judges love her. Linguini is loved and spoiled by everyone. She truly is a dream. They just don't get any better!!

Blue Jay
FOR LEASE FOR 2013 - Hack winning walk trot or walk trot canter pony. Super comfortable so great for the equitation too, judges love him! Blue Jay was champion or reserve in walk trot canter this year at almost every show. He and his current rider are currently first in points in their show circuit for walk trot canter with a large lead of almost 200 points. Blue Jay has also been to pony finals 2 times, but prefers the walk trot life!
Training Wheels
***UPDATE - Congratulations Tristen Shirey!!!!

QUALIFIED FOR PONY FINALS 2013!!! Her new rider may not be ready for small ponies by then, please inquire about a possible lease for that week.

10 yr old 12h welsh cross mare (chestnut/palomino). "Suzie" is the perfect first small pony. She has an auto auto change, and needs no prep. She has been to pony finals the last two years. Her green year she was 13th over fences, 16th overall and 25th in the model. She also qualified her rider for the USEF Pony Medal Finals. She is a fantastic jumper! For the 2011 show year she has shown at 8 A or AA shows and has been champion or reserve champion EVERY SINGLE TIME! She is a child's dream - and a mom and a trainer's dream. There are no worries when you send your kid into the ring on this one!

14yr old black welsh cross mare. She has been owned by only two families. Her first family had two little girls that she taught to ride from walk-trot to the medium pony division. She is a GREAT mover and has an "auto, auto" change. In fact, she won't stay on the wrong lead. Her current owner purchased her when she was only 7yrs old and had just started her jumping experience. In her career she was PHJA Pony of the Year a record 4 times. Freebird has exceptional ground manners and has no mare tendencies. She will turn out with anyone and will clip, bathe, stand for farrier, grooming, etc. without a fuss. She loves her job as a cross-rails/short stirrup teacher. Sadly her current owner has moved on to the pony division and Freebird needs to find a new child to teach.

Pony is available for sale (possible lease to approved home)

Stoneledge Just My Style
'Firecracker' is a 14.1 3/4 hh (perm card) 6 year old gelding by Pengwyn out of All for Me. He is started under saddle, is very quiet and a beautiful mover. He is the full sibling to our Challenger's Never More Lovely (In 2007 she was 2nd at Devon out of 23, 5th at upperville and winner of her two year old breeding class the other 15 times in 2007 as well as Champion Best Young Pony 12 times - She is also qualified for the greens in 2012 - watch for her in the hack and model for sure!!!!). He has been shown minimally in hand but has been the winner all but one time we have shown him as a 2 year old and 3 year old. Quiet enough for a kid to ride and fancy enough to go to pony finals. To finish it all off he has the best personality!

Stoneledge Special Request
By Pengwyn... of course... Nicknamed 'BamBam'... Well we really just wanted to have her picture up - we owned her about a minute!! Then Shawn couldn't have two 2007 bay pengwyn fillies so Sara has her now. But boy how Shawn lost out - because Tess' full sister is now MINE!! Oh - fine I will share! Out of our 20 I now had one to call my own for a week... He has Devon (He is spoiled) and I have to share Diamond (Tess' full sister) and the paternal half sisters (Diamond and BamBam) will still know each other for a long time. Thanks to everyone!
Stoneledge All for Me

Well - we did it... We decided we could not live without her and now we have Tess' FULL sister Diamond. Winner on the line at Devon we hope she continues to follow in her sister's footsteps... the only ones she won't follow are being sold as quickly! For inquiring minds we WILL keep the Stoneledge prefix.

We did selled sooner than we had planned, but they love her... and it gives me an excuse to fly to Colorado!! Thanks Don

Lego "Challenger's Kiss the Dragon"
Lego, by Smoke Tree Dragon Tail... we could not WAIT for him... and he gave us all the color we hoped for - a big huge blaze and 3 stockings! On top of that he moves so awesome - he even flicks his toes at the walk! We CANNOT believe the PALOMINO color this colt has turned out to be - compared to the chestnut color he was born - what a gift! He is stunning in every way - check back soon for more pictures.
