Congratulations to Maureen J. on her purchase of Tullymor's Macaroni Pony. This is him with transporter, Rick T's Horse Transport, just before loading up on Wednesday. I will miss this fun and very kind pony.


Ok, I have something personally brag worthy. Smokey, my 4 year old stallion, just got a Legion of Honor award from the Arabian Horse Association! This is kind of a big deal, at least for me, though technically it is the first level of a series of big awards they can earn. Here is the letter, he gets a plaque too, I’ll post a picture of that when it gets here. The ribbons below are what he came home with from the last horse show. Congratulations to Alex Chadwick, his rider and friend, without whom it would absolutely not have happened! (I need to get better pictures of his ribbons/loot, I’m not good at arranging these things.) Tracy Scheinkman (7/15/18)


Tullymor's Macaroni Pony went to his first horse show today to walk around the grounds and check out all the sights and sounds. He was curious but calm and a really good boy! I entered him in the halter class and he won his first blue ribbon:-) The next day, I entered a couple other classes, to further his experience. He did a walk and a couple walk-trot classes and brought home a few couple more blue and some red ribbons. The best part is what a joy he was to introduce to the world outside of Foothills Farms:-) He is such a sweet, willing and sensible pony. (7/15/18)

Gideon is by our former Connemara stallion, *Gun Smoke. Congrats to the entire team!!!

Congratulations to Diana Cooley on her 2nd place finish in the Summer Festival CDE at Clay Station Horse Park, Wilton, CA, driving Foothills Hopefilly Training Single Pony. (June 2018)

I am super thrilled with the first competitive outing for my new/green driving pair, Providence Carson and Providence Bates. They earned a blue ribbon at the Middle Tennessee Carriage Club schooling CT! They did better than I expected in dressage and actually completed the cones with only 2 balls down put to the Roberts wagonette, though we did have lots of time penalties. The goal for this first outing was to see how they would behave at a show and as a confidence builder for them. It was a perfect first show:-) This is Carson on the right and Bates on the left; Carole Moss on the back.

Thanks to Joel Sherlin for starting them in driving and teaching them so much and to Elizabeth Keathley who put them on the path of becoming real combined driving ponies in a short amount of time!

Team Dyno

We did it! Kynynmont Gunsmoke’s Gideon made his Grand Prix debut!
This horse is one in a million and I’m so honored I get to be his trainer! Thank you Pam for breeding him and trusting me with his training and care! He is a wonderful representative of the Connemara breed! He is 3/4 Connemara, 10 years old & sure looks bigger than his 15’2 hands! He is a joy to have around every day & so much fun to ride and train! Pam has some incredible Connemara/warm blood crosses coming up the ranks so be sure to check it out if you want your own Gideon!

We are pround to announce the arrival of a lovely filly by Grey Haven Collin O'Patrick out of our premium mare, Tullymor's Blush! Meet the adorable Foothills Honeysuckle Rose, born 5/31/18:

below left @ 1 day old; below right @ 1 week old

We have one of his earlier offspring, Smokin Gun (1998 dun gelding, out of Hazel Dew), who is rapidly assuming a similarly legendary status - in our eyes at least, and you might just like to add his CV and proof of longevity to his dad's attributes as a sire! We have owned Gunner for seven years now, and he will be with us til the day he dies. Although he is now 20 he looks amazing, and is as feisty and as competitive as ever. He has never been sick or sorry, and has never taken a lame step - the complete epitome of healthiness and hardiness (& I'm an equine vet - so I should know!).
With his previous owners he competed very successfully in BYRDS and affiliated Workers, being placed at HOYS in both the plaiteds and the M&M WHP finals.
He joined us when both he and my daughter were 12, and together they've had a stellar career, which has included the following;


- Multiple WHP Championships, including BSPS Champs, P(UK), RIHS etc;
- National School Dressage Champion in 2012;
- National Pony Club Eventing Champion in 2013;
- Been to Pony Club National Champs every year, from Junior level to Open level;
- Impeccable BE record - 3rd in the U21 South West BE league last year;
- Just missed qualification for Badminton Grassroots Ch'ship last year; he already has three regional final tickets to contest later this year;
- Twice BSPS area 11 Supreme Points Champion;
- Winner of BSPS 11 WHP points cup for last seven years;
- BCPS Performance Pony of the Year - winner in 2014 (over 4,000 points clear of anyone else!); 2nd in 2015, 4th in 2016, and the winner again last year (the only pony to score over 10,000 points).
- He is currently the BCPS Overseas Ambassador for the breed!

He is utterly amazing, tough, sound, genuine, competitive, consistent. He is adored by us all, and is a complete part of the family.
Now that Bethany is busy at University, I have taken over the reins and am doing affiliated dressage and eventing with him. We have already qualified for the BD Combined training Ch'ships, plus the PetPlan Area festivals. With our combined ages just short of 80, we refuse to slow up!

Gunner is the complete all rounder, and everyone is in awe of him around the south west.

I am attaching various photos of Gunner, and would love to hear back from you as to how is dad is. And I don't suppose you have any baby Gunner's for sale??

Kind regards, Dr Rebecca Hamilton-Fletcher, Touchwood, Hale Purlieu, Nr Fordingbridge, Hants SP6 2NN (April 2018)
