He is now showing successfully under saddle in dressage, english pleasure, western pleasure, trail and Ridden Welsh A/B, requires minimal warm-up at shows and has proven himself to be a fun and uncomplicated ride with absolutely no spook. Although 2014 was Kody's first year under saddle, he has already garnered several National Year-End Awards.

He received high marks for Breed & Sex Type, Conformation, Trot, Jumping and Overall Impression and Development. The German Verband Inspector also commented on his lovely temperament.

In 2015, he sired the #1 ISR/Oldenburg Sport Pony Colt and the #1 ISR/Oldenburg Sport Pony Filly (tie) in North America. Kody produced more ISR/Oldenburg Premium Sport Pony Foals in 2015 than any other stallion.

+ Pedigree Information


Kody is by Daventry Equestrian's resident stallion Alvesta Picasso. Picasso was named the 2009 WPCSC Section B Sire of the Year and finished in 2nd place in 2010. This Farnley Lustre bred stallion has been a regular on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire List for many years, in 2015, he was #54 on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire list and #9 on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Breeding Sire list. Kody comes from a long line of successful hunter ponies. His full brothers in blood, Jumpin' Jack Flash and Glannant Jackpot, are successful pony hunters down on the U.S. East Coast hunter circuit, and paternal half brother, Daventry's da Vinci, placed 13th overall out of 121 ponies at the 2015 USEF Pony Finals in the Regular Large Pony Hunters.


Kody's dam, Pajon's Royal Flirt, is by the imported *Rosedale Royal Flare, who has produced several successful pony hunters down in the US. Among them, Dreamworks, Bear Necessities, Royal Woodhaven and Top Zone 9 medium pony, Butterscotch Sundae. Kody's full brother, Offside, was a multiple Canadian National Champion and Supreme Champion on the Welsh Pony circuit, including National Championships in Hunter, English Pleasure, Western Pleasure & Leadline. Full brother, Daventry's Breakaway, was very successful on the Welsh Pony Circuit, and at just 4-years-old, full brother Daventry's Overtime was packing his 9-year-old rider around the show ring, was 3rd Nationally on the WPCSC circuit and is now successfully showing in the pony hunters in Canada.

    + About Our Shipped Semen Program

    Our goal at Daventry Equestrian is to ensure that you receive the best quality equine semen possible. Semen motility and morphology are checked with a Bausch & Lomb microscope and semen concentration is verified with a Quick Check™ Sperm Counter. We prefer to use INRA 96® extender with Power Play, which is the gold standard of extenders, and works best with his semen.


    Semen is shipped in a 72 hour Equitainer. Full paperwork, detailing all statistics and semen/extender ratio, is also included with each shipment to ensure that each Mare Owner has all of the information needed to properly inseminate their mare and ensure a successful conception. As a result, we have a high First Cycle Conception Rate on fresh shipped semen with Power Play, with only one mare not settling on the first cycle in 2014.


    We collect Monday through Friday. Pre-arranged Saturday and Sunday collections are available for local pick-up only or counter-to-counter WestJet flights within Canada. We would appreciate notification for semen shipments by 3:00 PM MST the night before shipping is needed. While we do ask for advanced notice, we do understand that not all mares read the "breeding handbook" and will do whatever we can if a last minute collection is required. As long as we have been notified of your mare coming into heat, we consider ourselves on call for that week! Our daily cut-off is 7:30 am MST.


    Our Canadian Mare Owners have the choice of using Fed-Ex overnight service or WestJet same day counter-to-counter service to select Canadian airports. We ship via Fed-Ex overnight for all USA destinations.
