Rey (aka Aurora TYG)
Rey is a fancy, talented, focused 15.2h, TOBIANO Warmblood German Riding Pony (her pedigree provides specifics on her breeding). Rey is homebred and raised/trained by us here at Gracesporthorses Ranch).
She is very athletic, with smooth yet expressive movement and great jumping form. She has been trained in dressage primarily for the past 8 months, which she does fluidly, appearing effortless to her. She was doing lower-level dressage (straightness and "schwung") and doing hill work for conditioning before heading off to be trained for a few months by eventing trainer John Strassburger. With John, she was working on lateral movements and moving correctly from back to front. She returned home in December 2020 and is now continuing her dressage training at our ranch in Winters.
Rey has a very smart and quiet mind. She would make an outstanding dressage, hunter/jumper, and/or eventing partner (she has the athleticism, intelligence, and work ethic do any other discipline you want!).
Rey's mother is Roxy TYG (see "Bloodline References" tab). Roxy is Half Hannoverian by a Rubinstein/Bolero stallion, whose offspring are know to have a straight-forward, very trainable, and easy-going brain.
Rubino Bellissimo was going Grand Prix at 9. In his later years, ridden by 18 yr. old Heidi Bergen, he and Bergen were long listed for the ParaOlympics and training at Gladstone when he suffered his untimely death.
