Lesson Ponies to a Show Jumping Star

Kirtlington Park Polo School ponies have gone on to varied careers.  High goal to essential lesson ponies, and even a show jumping star can be found in KPPS’s stud book. David Heaton-Ellis and Melissa began with an Argentine mare called Estrella – one of her fillies, Mia, is still a favourite in the school even now.  Of another two fillies out of an Ellerston mare by Andrew Seavill’s The Catisfield Kid, the eldest, Ella, went on to be owned and played by Carlos Gracida. Melissa’s future showjumping star, Floriana, was a similar combination. Other favorates of the school’s homebred string is a striking black gelding called Gosh, out of one of a Kirtlington mare played by David Heaton-Ellis, Picassa. Resident professional and instructor, Chris Crawford, broke him in and helped bring him on before he joined the lesson and hiring string.
