This gorgeous National Champion Half Welsh gelding is by our stallion Alvesta Picasso. Picasso was named the 2009 WPCSC Section B Welsh Pony Sire of the Year, has been on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire List for many years and is Farnley Lustre bred. He is related to half brothers Jumpin' Jack Flash and Glannant Jackpot who are successful pony hunters down on the US East Coast hunter circuit.
His dam, Lawful Flight, is a 14.2 HH Jockey Club Thoroughbred mare and was successfully shown at the prestigious 2005 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. She has been a successful pony hunter broodmare and produced the outstanding pony hunter gelding Pendermere Legacy, who went on to place 4th in the Yearling Pony Hunter class at Devon and finished off the 2002 season as USEF Zone 3 Reserve Champion Yearling Hunter Pony. Pendermere Legacy has been to the USEF Pony Hunter Finals twice, finishing 15th overall in the Large Greens at the 2009 USEF Pony Finals and placed 7th over fences, as well a winning Champion at Harrisburg!
Vinny is an outstanding pony with a beautiful head, friendly personality and impressive gaits. He is a dream to bath and clip and hauls wonderfully. He was pinned Grand Champion Half Welsh at his very first show and was also the 2010 Alberta Half Welsh Two Year Old Futurity Champion and overall Half Welsh Futurity Grand Champion. He finished off the 2012 season as the WPCSC National Champion Half Welsh 2 & Under. In 2014, he competed at the USEF Pony Finals in the Large Greens and finished 9th out of 81 ponies in the Model. At the 2015 USEF Pony Finals, Vinny earned a score of 80 in the Regular Large Model, scores of 83, 80 and 80 in the over fences, finished 9th over fences out of 121 ponies, 13th overall in the Regular Larges and 3rd place WPCSA High Scoring Welsh-bred pony.
