Bloodline Reference

Hidden Creek's Rain Fox is a 1983 bay TB/WEL crossbred standing 14.2 h. His accomplishments in the hunter pony ring included being a multiple time Devon Champion, Virginia Pony Breeders Champion, Virginia Pony Breeders Futurity Winner, and Virginia Classic Winner. He has sired many champions, including Rain Sox, Stars & Stripes, Kid Me Not, Fancy Pants and Won To Know. Rain Fox is owned by Marguerite Taylor-Jones and stands at stud at Champlain Isle Ponies in Isle La Motte, VT.

Tustin's Drumlin was a chestnut, 14.1 h TB/WEL mare bred by Tustin Farm. Drumlin won her yearling class at Devon and went on to be named Reserve Champion Crossbred Pony. In her later years she had a magnificent career as a broodmare. In 2001, her 2-yr old colt Tustin's Bandoleer was named Grand Champion Crossbred Pony at the Devon Horse Show.

Cymreag Rainbeau (1974-2000), sired by the famous Farnley Lustre, is undeniably the most successful pony hunter stallion in American history. Bred by Marguerite Taylor-Jones, the gray Welsh stallion sired many famous ponies, including Swan Song, Knickerbocker, Flying Colors, and more recently, Buzz Light Year, Millbrook's Tiny Bubbles, Lucky Too and Remember the Laughter.

Farnley Lustre, bred by the famous Farnley Farms in VA, has been called the "sire of the century". Producing 153 purebred Welsh stallions during the years he stood at stud, he was also the sire of some of America's top hunter pony stallions, including Hidden Creek's Rain Fox, Smoke Tree Mountain Ash, Farnley Balshazzar, Helicon Epic and Longacre Spinoff.
