Always Pleasing

Always Pleasing

 "Pleasy" is royally bred, from lines producing both great racehorses and superb European hurdlers and sporthorses. From the first crop of her sire, Souvenir Copy, she has a sweet and quiet disposition, great legs and feet, 9 inches of flat clean bone, ground-covering gaits and lots of size. At 16:2 HH, this very balanced and proportionate mare doesn't look as big as she is until you get up close to her! She raced at Santa Anita, was retired after a severe injury and bred for her first foal at three. That foal is Always Gold, currently still racing in 2010. Her second foal, the beautiful 2005 filly Sweet Goldielocks, by the Conquistador Cielo son Stolen Gold, is now owned by a nice woman in Montana.

Pleasy's third foal, by Snowford O'Donnell RID, is a gorgeous black-liver chestnut Irish Draught Sporthorse colt foaled April 20 of 2006. He was named reams Come True - and in this case, they truly have.

Pleasy foaled another huge gorgeous colt for 2007 to the cover of dressage champion Steeped in Luck RID. Everyone is expecting great things from this beautiful and sweet chestnut boy! His name is Lucky Punch .

Pleasy's third Irish sporthorse foal is the 2009 filly Pretty Please, by Manu Forti's Touch Down RID, first foal of her sire, and a multiple champion in her first years of showing.

Pleasy's fourth Irish foal is the gorgeous dark gray filly for 2011, Pretty Fancy.

At the 2009 NWSHBA Breeder's Classic, Pleasy took second in the Dressage Breeding Produce of Dam class. Shown with her foals Dreams Come True (3 YO gelding) and her 2009 filly Pretty Please at foot, her score of 74.25 reflected judge Carter Bass' comments on her get of "smooth bodied, strong toplines, good bone, nice angles".


2013 Foal Info

Always Pleasing has foaled a lovely filly by Manuforti's Touch Down for a 2013 Irish Sporthorse foal, born April 8th - just as the vet predicted! She is currently a chestnut with 3 socks and a blaze that will eventually turn to grey as she matures.
We are pretty excited for this cross as well, considering Pleasing Touch has a full sister, Pretty Please that has done exceedingly well.

Here is a list of her accomplishments:

IDHSNA In-Hand I Champion for 2009

NWSHBA Year End Awards Champion Hunter filly for 2010

IDHSNA In-Hand II 2010 Champion

USEF 2010 Zone 9 Hunter Breeding Horse of the Year
