Ernie came to us from his breeders along with his older brother for handling when he was a yearling. He was shy and unhandled but we were very taken with his sweet nature. Truth be told we fell in love with young Ernie and as such he ended up a Heald Town resident.
Ernie has an impressive pedigree. Ernie's father, Aigas of Achnacarry has qualified for HOYS in 2016 and 2017, Ernie's grandfather is the great Glen Aigas and his mother is by the well regarded Auchnahillin Scarba and out of Reynelladene.
Ernie moves beautifully and has great conformation. Importantly, Ernie has an incredible temperament. He is the favourite pony of the youngest Heald Town human, Lottie and he will do almost anything for a hug. Ernie was licensed as a stallion as a three year old in 2016 and has produced excellent offspring.
Ernie has recently gone out to be shown with our friend, Emma Jones, who is Heald Town Bonny's former jockey. They have already had their first show in hand, winning the class and taking Champion at Supreme Showdown. Emma plans to show Ernie under saddle in due course and we wish them the very best of luck.
Ernie will be back for stud duties in the future and has foals due in 2022.
