Redbud Ranch is delighted to offer for your consideration our In – Utero for 2018 Connemara x Thoroughbred Sired by our brilliant young Connemara Stallion R Blue Moon (Wildwych Eclipse x *Glenormiston Amelia/Domo Cavallo Praise) x Apt To Please (Pleasant Tap/Sweet Ernestine/Meadowlake) due in June.

Blue is bred to excel in both sport and breeding. He has a short back, uphill balance and powerful CORRECT hindquarter with exceptional hind leg articulation and demonstrated ability to either sit or thrust.

As a three year old, Blue was shown in hand at the 2016 USEA Future Event Horse Championships finishing in 3rd 3yo Colts Division (Against Horses) obtaining both excellent scores and outstanding comments from both young horse specialists. Blue is also your 2016 WCCS Breed Supreme Champion, Champion Stallion and Futurity Champion. R Blue Moons scores include 8.2/8.5/7.5/8.0/8.0.

Due to his popularity and busy breeding schedule R Blue Moon was started under saddle lightly as a three year old. In 2017-18 Blue continues to demonstrate he is a willing, confident and happy riding pony showing both competitive gait quality and exceptional jumping aptitude. We do expect Blue to continue his show horse career in 2018, following whats shaping up to be another busy year in the breeding shed.

As a 3 year old Wildwych Eclipse was inspected and approved and performance tested with the American Connemara Pony Society, ISR Sport Pony and GOV/Weser Ems Pony division. He was a Star Award Stallion with the ISR for both is own performance as well as that of his progeny.

A versatile stallion, Wildwych Eclipse has been a USEF Leading Sire in 3 Disciplines : Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing.

R Blues Moons dam is the spectacular Premium/Special Premium Titled Imported Mare Glenormiston Amelia. Amelia is a pony of superb athletic type, harmonious conformation and spectacular movement. In 2005, Amelia qualified for the USEF/USDF Adequan DSHBS Breeders Challenge Championships. In 2010 she was presented at the GOV/Weser Ems Breed Inspection and Mare Performance Test where she was awarded the highest marks of the entire test by winning the free jumping portion (8.7). At that same event Amelia was also awarded the Euro-Horseshoeing Prize for Riding Ponies, a competition that combines both visual inspection as well as a ridden test.

*Glenormiston Amelia is the daughter of multi champion Performance Stallion Domo Cavallo Praize and out out of the graded showjumper/eventer Glenormiston Clementine. Among many other Performance Champion Offspring, Domo Cavallo Praize is the sire of the Show Jumping Legend Glenormiston Patrick (4.9ft) as well as FEI 4 Star Event Horse Feldale Mouse who is currently campaigning at the International Level throughout Europe. Glenormiston Amelias 2007 Daughter Oleander is currently competing in France at the Elite Level for ponies (4.3ft). A son is also ready to compete at 3rd Level in Dressage.

Amelia’s Dam, Glenormiston Clementine, a graded show jumper/eventer herself, was also a full sibling to 3 International Studbook Approved Connemara Stallions: Glenormiston Fintan, Glenormiston Freedom and Glenormiston Jasper. All three stallions have produced Competitive FEI Level Offspring. Clementines full sister, Glenormstion Dulcinea, is also the dam of 2 International Stud Book Stallions: Glenormiston Celtic Pride and Glenormiston Celtic Prince.

Apt to Please is a Turf Winning JC registered Thoroughbred mare approved into AHS Main Mare Book and selected for the prestigious/competitive German Verband Jumper Breeding Program.

She is our most successful broodmare having produced both an AHS Elite Mare Candidate as well as a declared Stallion Prospect with the American Hanoverian Society.

Apt To Please’s 2016 Colt Escher DFEN was declared “Stallion Prospect” at his foal inspection and last season took the 2yo Colts Futurity at Rainbow Equus Meadows Hanoverian Breed Futurity. Escher DFEN is also our 2016 National High Scoring 2yo Colt with the USEAs Future Event Horse Championships scoring tremendous 85%. Escher DFEN will seek stallion liscensing/approval on visual inspection in 2018.

This 2018 pairing is also a full sibling to our stunning 2016 Half Bred Colt R Troubadour (R Blue Moon x Apt To Please) now residing in Montana. His owner reports that Tru is exceeding her every expectation in overall type, quality, correctness and character and she is very much looking forwards to continuing his education in the spring.
