Brambleridge Truth or Dare. 2012 Connemara Sport Horse mare by Salute the Truth ex Sparrow's Tiptoes.
Trudy is a homebred filly by the TB stallion, Salute the Truth, and out of our foundation mare, Sparrow's Tiptoes. Trudy is 3/4 Thoroughbred and 1/4 Connemara, a powerful combination of speed, stamina, longevity and jump. Both her sire and dam proved themselves as competitive upper level event horses, and she comes from a preponent line of jumpers and eventers. Two closely related individuals competed at the 2017 Rolex ****; Sparrow's Nio who shares the same sire with Trudy's dam, and Truly Wiley who shares the same sire as Trudy.
Trudy was shown on the line a few times as a youngster, both at FEH events and at the Region IV Connemara shows. She was lightly backed at age 3, but her under saddle career has started slowly due to having a foal by Declan in 2016. She produced a very nice colt that was sold to a 4* event rider as an upper level eventing prospect.
Trudy Is a better than average mover, and is soft and light in the bridle. She enjoys jumping, and is forward and brave. She has just begun competing under saddle, and has found success at her first two schooling horse trials. She finished in the ribbons at both shows, finishing on her dressage score. We expect that she'll make her recognized debut in late spring of 2018.
