As a foal, Pixar was the Site Champion at his ISR Oldenburg NA Inspection. He received a premium award, and was named a stallion prospect. Pixar was shown successfully on the line to many championships in the breed ring in 2015 and 2016. He has held his own against the horse stallions on many occasions including Dressage at Devon and the Young Horse Show series.
Pixar was presented to the ISR Oldenburg of North America in August of 2015. He received his Certified Breeding License in the Sport Pony Division. Pixar received high scores at his testing, including 7.5 on his correctness of gait, stallion type, and athletic ability and balance. He scored an 8 on his walk! He is one of the highest scoring stallions in the registry for Conformation Index results (a combination of the individual scores for head, neck, shoulder and saddle position, frame and top line, front legs, hind legs as well as correctness and the score for breed and stallion type).
In the fall of 2017, Pixar’s breeding license was extended until he reaches lifetime approval via performance scores. During the summer of 2017, Pixar spent the summer in full training at Tina Konyot’s farm in North Stonington CT, learning the basics of dressage. He then spent the following summer of 2018 at Select Breeders in MD breeding. When he returned home in the fall, he started training over fences with Maciek Petska of Oak Meadow Farm in South Windsor, CT. Pixar began his under saddle show career this summer with Colleen Barrett, a young rider from Massachusetts, and learned the ins and outs of showing. He received several solid scores and compliments from the judges. Pixar also competed in his first hunter derby, placing 8th out of twenty entries. He was ridden by an adult amateur, and was the only pony in the class. Pixar ended the 2019 show season qualified for The Great American/USDF Region 8 Dressage Championships in 2020, USDF All Breed Awards Champion In-hand, and USDF All Breed Awards Reserve Champion for Training Level Dressage with Colleen Barrett. He will continue to compete in the hunter ring indoors this winter, and show first and second level dressage next year with Colleen.
