BENNOS HIT – Born April 2000, 14.2 HH, chestnut with blaze and four white socks. Bennos Hit was an exceptional German Sport Pony stallion standing in Ontario Canada. He was winner of “Best of Year” at the 2002 pony stallion inspections at Mecklenburg-Voorpommern, Germany.
In 2004 he was awarded first premium with the American Sport Pony Registry and was an ASPR licensed pony stallion until we gelded him in 2010. He has also been accepted as an approved breeding stallion with the American Paint Pony Registry. Bennos Hit has a great disposition, excellent conformation, wonderful paces and form over fences. He received a score of 8 for his scope over fences at the ASPR inspection in April 2004.
In June 2005 he was invited to participate in the Pony Dressage clinic with Cornelia Endres, National Trainer of German Pony Dressage Riders hosted by Lendon Gray. He received wonderful comments about his outstanding canter.
In 2006 Bennos Hit qualified for the Star Search Sport Pony Challenge Final at the RWAF and was one of the top four finalists. In 2009 he was second in the stallion class for Sport Ponies at the Royal Winter Fair
His first foal in Canada, from a quarantine test mare, received a ASPR score of 7.4 and was ASPR 2004 Reserve Futurity Champion in Eastern Canada. In 2005, his foal Bennington was ASPR high score foal in Canada with a score of 7.9 and was tied for second place in USA. In 2006 and 2007, all his foals were awarded First Premium Status at the ASPR inspections. In 2006 Bennos Fancy owned by Anne and Jim Mason was the Saturday site champion.
Since the winter of 2008 Jane has been riding Ben with Lorraine Stubbs and Cindy Ishoy and he has progressed up the dressage levels. In 2008 he was the Training level champion at the Silver Championships, 2010 he ws the Open Level 1 Champion again at the Championships and started 2011 as the Level 1 Champion at his first Gold Dressage Show. In 2009, 2011 and 2012 he was selected, based on show results to participate in the Cadora sponsored Stephen Clarke dressage clinincs.
During 2011 we showed Ben at several of the sport pony shows and he quickly qualified for the Royal Winter Fair under saddle and on the line. He was champion sport pony at Arthur Fair and reserve champion at Barrie Fair. At the 2011 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair he won the Sport Pony Gelding class and then went on to be Grand Champion Sport Pony.
In 2012 I showed Ben at third level dressage and he won at many shows. The high light in 2012 was Ben winning the Third Level Championships at the US Pony Dressage Cup held in Lexington Kentucky. After we got back I took him to a sport pony qualifier show and he won the gelding class, was Senior Champion and then Grand Champion.
In 2013 I showed Ben Level 3 and he won all his classes except one. he was champion Level 3 at several shows, Champion Level 3 for Cadora Ontario year end standing and reserve champion for the Glanbrook dressage shows.
Ben has several offspring excelling in several disciples. In the Ontario hunter pony circuit two top ponies are Harvey and Dora the Explorer. In the dressage circuit, Ben is joined by offspring Bennington, Buckingham, Bennos Fancy and Bennos Curly. Beyond Imagination is also eventing in Florida and Ontario.
Ben has exceeded all my expectations and is truly an outstanding individual. He continues to win fans where ever we show.

It is with great sadness that we had to put Zeus down in October 2006
Kemurs Zeus has sired numerous riding and driving ponies before we purchased him in 1999. His wonderful personality which seems to be passed on to his offspring has made him many fans over the years. Welsh breeders still comment about his wonderful trot and remember when he was first shown by Keith and Chris Murray to many Welsh championships.
When we purchased him he had been a breeding stallion for 10 years. We knew he had been shown in harness so one day we hitched him. He was perfect so we continued to show him in pleasure driving until he was retired. Even today he can easily be handled by a child as his manners are outstanding for a pony stallion.
Along with breeding to Welsh mares, Zeus has been bred to outside horse mares for the past couple of years. These mare owners wanted to produce good moving large ponies with great personalities. In 2005 and 2006 several foals from this cross have been amazing. We are retaining two cross bred foals for showing and one welsh mare for breeding.
