Strike A Note was bred at Glenwood from old fashioned top bloodlines. He has been very lightly shown his progress is as follows:

  • Yearling 1st at Richmond in Mixed M&M Class

  • Two year old 2nd at North East Connemara Show

  • 1st Yearling and 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.

As there were no shows in 2020, Strike a Note has time off mature and has recently come back into work to be ridden over the winter.

Information on the bloodlines of Glenwoodstud Strike a Note

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 and 2nd in the Picton Final. 

He has been HOYS Cuddy finalist on three occasions and Multi-Champion under saddle Qualifying on several

occasions for RIHS, HOYS and Olympia and 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 and then Supreme

Champion of Show and 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 and De Ja Vu another son won his Yearling class and

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 and first in the 4-5 Stallion Class and 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 and Olympia and

her sire Whitwell Senator was awarded a Super Premium.  His grandfather on his sire’s side Bardsey Zodiac

Qualified for Olympia several times and 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

and willing to please. Bought from Eastlands Stud as a weanling she won and was Reserve

Champion at the Northern Breed Show and was 1st Yearling at Linnels Connemara Section.

She went on to win many shows and Championships including Champion of All In Hand classes

at the Scottish Connemara Show, winning the four year old and over class at the Northern Breed

Show 2009 and the same at the North East Connemara Show. Strange to say she was 3rd to

Skellorn Harrison at Area 4 at the Great Yorkshire Showground.

Lockinge Frederick needs no introduction being a definite legend and 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 and the grandsire of Skellorn Harrison. She also gained

her In Hand Premium.  A most wonderful mare.
