Arron: 28 Year Old Super Haflinger

Our most distinguished horse at Nayborly Farms has got to be Arron, who at 28 years of age has a life history that reads like a good novel. This October Arron proved once again how impressive his strong pony genes are by taking first at the Briarwood Pony Club One Day event at Novice level, with rider Patti Mize aboard. This was his second event this year, and his second win! He just keeps on going, and out on cross-country you could easily mistake him for a four year old. Congratulations to Arron and Patti for a great session.

Arron was born in 1983.
He started his eventing career at age 19, nine years ago.
And his joints seem to be working well!
A Halloween-themed event, Arron shows off his "My Little Pony" clip design.
