Pollyanna is a lovely 2012 bay (though will gray) filly expected to mature around 16 hands. A very fancy mover with a pet quality temperament, we expect her to be bold and flashy with excellent stamina. She should excel at the upper levels of eventing.
Polly’s dam, Hushabye Lady, is well bred for producing eventers. Her great grand sire, Sir Ivor, is a harder to find TB identified by the French annual book of sport horse breeding as the TB sire with the greatest influence on the International Show Jumping scene world wide. In addition, her pedigree concentrates the great sport horse producing thoroughbreds Nasrullah, Nearco, Mumtaz Begum, Pharos, Bold Ruler, Teddy, and Bull Dog in the 5th to 9th generations.
Polly’s sire, Royal Alyance, brings in some of the warmblood jumping greats, Lord, Ladykiller (through Landgraf I), and Cor de la Bryere. This match concentrates sex balanced lines of Native Dancer (agility, jumping, work ethic), Nasrullah (temperament and athletic ability), Nearco (jumping), and Princequillo.
