From the moment she was born, Etta was a sassy girl! She was born ready to run and has lovely paces. As with Joy's previous foals, she has a stunning head, super refined features and the longest legs!
Etta is bred in the purple - her sire Norgaards Jason (KNN 307) is fully graded with the SPSS and the KNN - passing his performance test with the KNN obtaining a huge 878.57 points out of a possible 1000. Jason's score is one of the highest ever for a KNN stallion - and the highest over all the UK based KNN stallions. Of special note within his marks are a 9 for his trot and 8.5 & 9 for his jumping technique, and gaining straight 10s for all his temperament scores.
On her dam's side, Welsh Section B grandsires are Rotherwood State Occasion and Boston Bentick, both prolific winners in the ring. Joy herself has been a consistent producer of children's ponies - all with super temperaments and proving easy to train and consistent in their work, both at home and away. Her offspring have attended pony club, and been successful in showjumping, hunter trials and dressage, as well as showing.
Etta's sire, Norgaards Jason, is a fully licenced BSpPS stallion on the International Register, and Etta is one of his third crop of foals. Etta will be passported with the SPSS, but is fully eligible for grading with the KNN, and overstamping with the BSpPS and Part-Bred Welsh, as she is 50% Welsh, with her dam being a Section B mare.
Joy has done us proud once again - all her foals are superb quality and lovely ponies to have around.
