After spending the previous 4 years in the broodmare paddock we decided to take Hillydale Spring Sonata to the 2018 Victorian Pinto Championships where as per usual she did not disappoint.
Shown in only 2 classes for 2 wins, Champion Mare 14hh and under and Champion Dual Registered Australian Pony she then capped it off by being awarded 2018 VPS State Grand Champion Mare
A very special moment for all of us as her first born "The Rise of Kingston" was awarded the VPS State Grand Champion Junior Exhibit in 2017
This season see's Hillydale Spring Sonata heading back in foal to another truly amazing imported Riding Pony Stallion <3 and we look forward intently to see what this cross will produce in 2019. ... See MoreSee Less

Carries 4 crosses to Keston Royal Occasion, a double cross to Sandbourne Royal Ensign and also a cross to the great Lechlade Quince
I'm pretty hesitant about selling this boy as he truly is something special but if the right home came along I would part with him - has certainly got the same stamp as his very successful sisters Just a Doll of Kingston and Newington Tinkerbel ... See MoreSee Less
