Rooks Corker is the ultimate X Factor sports pony stallion and is sponsored by the top horse feed producers, Bluechip for 2016. Rooks Corker combines stamina, speed and athleticism with the most trainable, endearing temperament and essential bloodlines to create the ultimate FEI sportspony. His German Reitpony bloodlines consist of exceptional TB/Arab and Welsh Sec B blood. The Welsh Sec B, has been described as the Thoroughbred of all welsh ponies and the Brockwell and Downland lines were the most sought after in England in the 20th century. They were subsequently selected by the Germans and added to their winning recipe of the German Reitpony.
Emma Martin, breeder and owner of Rooks Corker selected and trained, as youngsters, several talented German Reitponies and sold them into the UK between 2006 and 2009; Spot Awole, Waleska, Maxwell and Rooks Nepomuk to name but a few. This led to her carefully selecting and purchasing Rooks Corker's dam, Steinmelodie to go to No Limit and thereby combine the bloodlines of the very best of these ponies into Rooks Corker
The ablility of these bloodlines is shown by Spot Awole, who is by No Limit and out of Steinperle II (who like Rooks Corker's dam is a granddaughter of Steinblume), who ridden by event rider Emily Proud, achieved outstanding results:
Winner Burghley Event Pony final
National schools Elementary Dressage Champion
National Schools Eventing Champion
Junior Regional Novice Winner at Wilton
Pony Club Open Eventing Winner on DRESSAGE SCORE of 18!
Winner of BE JUMP TRAINING on penalty of 1
Numerous BE, Dressage and SJ wins. " A pony of a lifetime, the very best" (Emily Proud)
||Rooks Corkers progeny consist of two geldings, rising 4 (used as stallion before stallion grading). Both ponies are correct, with spacious and elastic movement and have superb character. Outstanding for dressage/ hunter classes, eventing, show jumping or driving. Rooks Corker has stamped his progeny with X factor presence, intelligence and effortless power. The winning ingredients to excel in any discipline at National and International level.
We are looking forward to two more Rooks Corker foals in the spring, both out of competition mares. 2015 has rewarded us with 100% AI with frozen semen.
Rooks Corker will be standing at Twemlows from the 26th April - 26th May therefore Fresh/Chilled semen will be available during this period. At other times, frozen semen is available and there is a discount for selected competition mares. In 2016, five mares will be eligible for FREE Rooks Corker semen, chosen by discretion of owner. Rooks Corker's semen is of "outstanding quality" (Vet Tom Gliddon of White Lodge Vets, Minehead).
