Cinnamon In Action

Cinnamon’s mom sent me some pictures of them competing together. Cinnamon joined us in retirement last fall but I had not ever seen any pictures of her in action until recently, and of course I had to share them! Cinnamon is a large pony of unknown breeding that their trainer had accepted in lieu of a commission on another horse. Cinnamon’s mom started riding her and they really clicked. I’m told Cinnamon wasn’t the easiest ride in the world, that she was pretty hot and also a very explosive jumper which you don’t always expect in a large pony. She was also very fast and could really run and turn in the jump-offs.

A few years ago Cinnamon and her mom were members of the gold medal winning team at the National Pony Jumper Championships. Not a bad record for a pony that no one knew anything about at one point! Even more impressive about their gold medal is the fact that their team only had three members instead of four, so they had no drop score and every single round counted. What an impressive way to win!

Cinnamon did a great job of preparing her young rider for even bigger jumps as she moved on to the junior jumpers. Her mom recently won silver and bronze medals at the North American Junior Young Rider Championships in Lexington, KY. Her mom now has the trifecta of medals, gold, silver, and bronze and Cinnamon started it all.
