Rackwood Bonnie (2007)

Dam: Rackwood Magic, Sire: Stennerskeugh Bonny Lad

Bonnie is a gentle, kind natured pony. She has been well handled and regularly shown. I am going to allow her time to grow and mentally mature before breaking her to ride. She will grow to full height and should make a superb riding pony. She became a broodmare during 2011.

3rd Prize Fell 2&3 yrs at Great Yorkshire Show
1st Prize Fell 2&3 yrs Cleveland Show

2015: Bonnie has spent the year hacking out from home and at Hamsterley Forest and has attended some pleasure rides. Unfortunately she’s had to take a back seat while I have spent time showing Maggie May.

2016: Bonnie continued to be ridden by myself and several of my friends who needed a pony to ride.

We did the North East Support Group Beach Ride in March but by far the most important event she attended was H M The Queen’s Guard of Honour ride at Windsor in July. She was ridden in the front line of ponies by Shelly Gilson while I rode Hugo, my newly broken 4yr old.
135 Fell ponies as a Guard of Honour to HM The Queen, in a green paddock at Windsor Fells as far as the eye can see, at Windsor in 2016.

2017: Bonnie continued to be ridden but, realising that she needed a job to do, I decided to put her in foal again so sent her away to stud during May/June. On her return she went to Hamsterley to live with my other broodmares until she took ill with grass sickness and was brought home for tests and treatment.
Bonnie was put to sleep on 5th August 2017.
