Brecken's Story
Although Breckie (a name truncated from the original "Breckenridge") showed quite a lot on the WEF circuit in West Palm Beach and also at Littlewood Farm, we've only been able to track his successes through The Chronicle of the Horse's show results and via the occasional conversation with his owner Allison Coluccio. Actually, at present, we are unsure who owns him, but we do know that the picture on the left was taken at one of the WEF shows because it was published in Horse Illustrated, part of an article about choosing the ideal child's pony.

Breckie was bred in Florida, out of Chelsea by a "Modern" Shetland stallion. In fact, he was bred to be a fancy, little broodmare: the stallion was a fancy black, about 12.0 hands, with four white stockings. Well, Breckie somehow didn't get the message and came out a kind of mousy brown with no white whatsoever.

Because we are breeding ponies for the performance divisions, not the hunter ring, Breckie's size made him unsuitable for us to develop. Sold as a two-year old, he actually managed to sire two foals (in addition to being broke to drive) before we bought him back at age three.

Luckily, that was the year his big brother, Karacter, was doing extremely well on the circuit, so we made the decision to present him at the Pony Finals Sale where Karacter ended up placing 13th out of 80+ ponies. In fact, Breckie was bought by Robert and Allison Coluccio, tthe parents of Evan, Karacter's rider at the time.
