    Imported Purebred stallion. Inspected and approved Premium stallion. Heterozygous grey from buckskin roan. Declan can sire grey and non-grey foals; he can also sire roan, buckskin & palomino.

    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.
