The Luminary Breeder: Kristy Jarvis of Dynamik Stallions
In the verdant pastures of Western Australia, Kristy Jarvis, founder of Dynamik Stallions, has become a beacon of success in the realm of pony breeding. Her mission began in 2008 with the importation of the first licensed German Riding Pony for public stud into Australia, sparking a nation-wide fondness for the breed.

Angelic: A Mare with a Gleaming Pedigree and a Challenge
Angelic, a Chestnut Overo German Riding Pony Cross, was not just another addition to Dynamik Stallions. With a remarkable uphill build, a superlative neck set, and potent sire, Trussardi D, her genetic makeup was destined for excellence in breeding and competition.

A Rocky Road: Multiple Surgeries and Emerging Challenges
Angelic’s journey was marked by surgical interventions, resulting from acquired hoof deformity believed to be caused by nutritional deficiencies during growth and a subsequent paddock injury. Even after achieving soundness post-surgery, Angelic encountered discomfort, particularly during the last trimester of her fourth pregnancy, leading to considerations of an early retirement from breeding.
