Declan's pedigree boasts a who's who of top European show jumping lines. His sire is none other than the great Dexter Leam Pondi, an internationally renowned Grand Prix show jumping pony that holds an incredible record in international competition, and made many team appearances for the Junior European Championships. He is a prolific sire of Grand Prix jumping ponies.
Declan's dam, Dandy Sparrow, is by Ashfield Bobby Sparrow, a stallion with a reputation and performance record comparable to that of Dexter. Ashfield Bobby Sparrow was a Grade A show jumper and a top eventing pony in Ireland. His bloodlines are represented around the world, and he consistently sired superior performance ponies. Additionally, Declan's dam goes back to Ballydonagh Cassanova, sire of Westside Mirah & Poetic Justice, stallions that have both left a significant mark on Connemara performance breeding.
Declan has been showing across multiple disciplines, but his primary focus has been eventing and foxhunting. He began his foxhunting career early and was roading hounds at the age of 3 – a testament to his incredible mind. He is finishing up his sixth season of hunting and is not yet 10. He hunts in the field and whips in – showing good character in his ability to handle being surrounded by other horses, galloping in a group and hounds underfoot! Declan has hunted with multiple packs on the east coast, including an annual week- long trip to Virginia.
... see moreIn 2019 Declan won five recognized horse trials at the Novice level, finishing all on his dressage score of 30 or below! He finished the year as USEA Area III's #1 Novice Horse, GDCTA's Novice Champion, the USEF Reserve Champion Purebred Connemara in Eventing and USEF/ACPS Novice Champion. He moved up to Training in 2021, and although he only showed a few times, he was #4 for Purebred Connemaras in Eventing with the USEF. He had a 1st and 2nd place finish at the level and is scoring in the 20's in dressage.
His first foals are consistent in quality and temperament. They are inheriting an intelligent, kind and willing demeanor, and he is stamping them with a strong hindquarter, correct limbs, good length of rein and a nice head.
