Strike A Note was bred at Glenwood from old fashioned top bloodlines. He has been very lightly shown his progress is as follows:
Yearling first at Richmond in Mixed M&M Class
Two year old 2nd yearling at North East Connemara Show
1st Yearling & Champion Connemara at Border Union Show
Not shown at three as we moved premises
Four year old inspected, broken, first show ridden where he proved to be all our expectations and behaved beautifully in a large mixed class. He was a joy to break and tries so hard to please. He has all the attributes to be a superb match for larger up to height mares as well as keeping the height for smaller mares.
SIRE Skellorn Harrison
He needs no introduction as he has had an exceptional showing career as well as breeding top class progeny who are enjoying similar success. He stood with us at Glenwood for three seasons and have to say he was a pleasure to work with in every way including stallion parades.
Some of his winnings are: First time out winner of a Picton Qualifier & 2nd in the Picton Final. He has been HOYS Cuddy finalist on three occasions & Multi-Champion under saddle Qualifying on several occasions for RIHS, HOYS & Olympia & Champion Open Ridden NPS All Breeds.
He has also won BCPS breed shows e.g. Supreme Champion of Northern Breed Show 2011 – 2010 Breed Show Moreton Morrell 1st -6 year old Stallion Class, Champion Stallion, Best British Stallion & then Supreme Champion of Show & on the same day one of his sons Prairie Dancer won the 2 year old Stallion Class. At Cheshire County Skellorn won his class then Champion & De Ja Vu another son won his yearling class & was Reserve Champion to his father which is quite outstanding. Prairie Dancer went on to win the 3 year old Stallion Class at Dorset County Show 2011 & first in the 4-5 Stallion Class & Best British Stallion at the 2012 Breed Show. Skellorn Rain Man is a Grade 1 Stallion Son Standing in France. The above shows that Skellorn Harrison can produce fantastic progeny without any doubt.
Skellorn Harrison also has very good bloodlines his dam Tyan Takara also Qualified for HOYS & Olympia & her sire Whitwell Senator was awarded a Super Premium. His grandfather on his sire’s side Bardsey Zodiac Qualified for Olympia several times & really excelled at Dressage Tyan Takara is also the dam of Skellorn Monarch.
Dam Eastlands Wild Orchid was a great Show Mare in her own right always trying her best & willing to please. Bought from Eastlands Stud as a weanling she won and was Reserve Champion at the Northern Breed Show & was 1st Yearling at Linnels Connemara Section. She went on to win many shows & Championships including Champion of All In Hand classes at the Scottish Connemara Show, winning the four year old & over class at the Northern Breed Show 2009 & the same at the North East Connemara Show. Strange to say she was 3rd to Skellorn Harrison at Area 4 at the Gt Yorkshire showground.
Lockinge Frederick needs no introduction being a definite legend & gaining an In Hand Progeny Premium, & a Ridden Progeny Premium speaks volumes.
His sire Atlantic Swirl gained an In Hand Progeny Premium & sired 5 Olympia finalists and two Champions
Bardsey Trinket bred sixteen top foals most huge winners. She is the full sister to Bardsey Zodiac a great Dressage pony & the grandsire of Skellorn Harrison. She also gained her In Hand Premium. A most wonderful mare.
