       ROTHERDALE MAGIC PRINCESS (10 years)

 

In June 2003 Princess gave us a beautiful black filly the second she has had by Rhodri. Unfortunately she had to be put down after an accident in the field left her with a broken leg.

DCP_0863.jpg (417575 bytes)

 

It was decided to give Princess a change after losing her foal and she was entered in the Novice Ridden Class at The WP&CS's Autumn Performance Show in September. After only three weeks of schooling she finished a very credible 7th out of 14. Having started in 3rd place she showed her lack of experience when during the gallop in her individual show she put in a rather exuberant "leap".

In hand she was Supreme Show Champion at The Cwmdu & District Show, where she qualified for the New London Gold Championships. These Championships where held at The Shrewsbury Show Ground in August and Princess finished 4th overall. At Monmouth County Show she finished the season with a red card.

ROTHERDALE MAGIC PRINCESS (9 years)

 

Princess foaled at the end of June 2002, which curtailed her showing opportunities. She did however produce us a lovely filly foal (R. Viscountess) by our junior stallion R. Rhodri.

 

Centenary World Show.         Supreme Champion.

National Pony Show.                      Cob Champion.

Monmouth County.                        Cob Champion.

ROTHERDALE VANESSA. (filly foal)

 

Vanessa has a very colourful pedigree. Her Dam, Rotherdale Dulais , was Youngstock Champion at The Royal Welsh in 1987 as a three year old and her Sire, Rotherdale Rhodri, was Reserve Youngstock Champion at The Royal Welsh in 1999 as a yearling.

 

This lovely filly attended her first show at the end of November 2002 and came home a Supreme Champion.
