Eventing bloodlines in the purple, this exciting young International competition and breeding prospect is already broken and going well under saddle.
He has been seriously impressive loose jumping – showing tremendous scope, fantastic technique, three beautiful paces, and a superb relaxed and trainable temperament.
He has already been trained to the dummy and his first mare scanned in foal from its first service.
Britannia’s Bijou is out of Bella Britannia (one of 4 embryo transfer daughters of the eventing legend Headley Britannia) who was successfully competed up to BE100 and Show Jumped up to 1.20m before going back to stud and is now in foal to Timolin.
Britannia’s Bijou’s sire is the top Riding pony stallion Littledale Bright Star – a high quality pony stallion that has competed at everything from Vaulting to Show Jumping. He only stands at 12.2hh but is currently the only pony stallion to have sired International progeny of all Olympic disciplines.
In 2020 Britannia’s Bijou was awarded Gold in the British Breeding Futurity evaluations and Gold Premium by the Sports Pony Studbook Society.
Britannia’s Bijou will be competing in 4 year old classes as well as covering mares in 2021.
