Christmas 2018 saw him in the H&H review of the year.


His Dam Abergavenny Sally is one of the UK’s top Section D mares winning In Hand & under saddle with many Championships to her credit, including the Royal Welsh & many County Shows. Dr. Wynne Davies MBE spoke of her as a good Section D mare as has ever been seen which is a huge tribute to her.

Comet has proven high fertility, and his stock is already winning in the ring.


2016 was his showing debut and what a season it was. He Qualified for PUK, Equifest, Northern Breeders & NCPA Pony of the Year for the 2nd time. His list of 2016 achievements are as follows, a great list for a young 4 year old.
