    Default Pony Jumper Oliver Twist

    Out of total curiosity, does anyone know the breeding behind Oliver Twist, the adorable grey pony Jessica Karsin Landi won with at the Pony Jumper Finals?

    looked him up on youtube, says welsh cross, Can't believe he is only 12.3!!
    what an incredible pony!!! Would love to know his specific bloodlines as well.. going to ask the person posting on youtube his videos.

    P.S. okay conflicting information, one place says he is 12.3 another 13.1, not a big difference and regardless wow!!!

    I'm sure his owner will get on shortly, but his other half is paso fino. Having seen him numerous times, i'd vote he's in the 13.something range. He's small, but not 12 hand small, I don't think.

    from what I saw he is 13.1, got misinformation from a comment on one of the videos, still that is amazing. Welsh/Paso Fino? Hmm, what welsh lines I wonder. We have a 13.2 welsh mystery cross, super jumper but super bratty, hoping to get her to this level some day.......

    here is video of oliver twist (not recent)

    That's my boy! yes he is a Welsh/Paso Fino cross. I believe his perm card say he is 13h ??? Need to check to be 100% sure. I put a tape on him when I got the 12.3 measurement and that was years ago. Just never got around to changing the video info.

    cool, I have one of those, don't even know what she is, supposed to be welsh cross but has strong Exmore resemblance to me. She is a great jumper but working on attitude. How old is Oliver Twist? So did you just lease him out and have owned him the whole time? You must be so proud. Congrats.. Well deserved, great pony!!!!

    He is 8 yrs old. I bought him when he was 3 and trained him from the ground up. He had only been ridden 2-3 times when I got him. Yes he has been leased for the 2011 show year. I am very proud. To see where he came from to winning at The Pennsylvaina National horse show is amazing.

    Congrats! 'i live in the ATL area and didn't do Harrisburg this year so I hope to see him in person in 2011. I loved your youtube videos! I spent many fun junior years doing the pony jumpers at devon, ocala, wef, pony finals, indoors, etc. It was 4 years ago, but I still love seeing awesome, quick pony jumpers with great accurate riders!

    There is another pony from pony jumper finals that is for sale "La ti Da", from Zone 7 won silver. Owners says they will take all reasonable offers. Rider outgrew the pony this summer.

    Super awesome pony jumper
