Rescued pony comes out on top

October 5, 2006

ILPH Fraggle shows off his prize haul.
A pony, rescued by the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) as an unhandlable two-year-old, has been named ILPH Wales and West Horse of the Year.

ILPH Fraggle, a 13.2hh piebald gelding, arrived at ILPH Glenda Spooner Farm in Hoarwithy, Herefordshire from Dartmoor in 1999. Once he had matured and undergone a full rehabilitation programme, Fraggle was broken in and began to show real potential as a child's pony.

In July 2005, Fraggle was successfully re-homed via the ILPH loan scheme to borrower Wendy Scudamore and her nine-year-old daughter Lucy, from Hereford. In the past twelve months Lucy and Fraggle have won a total of 63 rosettes, two championships, three smaller trophies and third prize in the Riding Club horse/pony class at the Midlands Pony Championships 2006.

On top of all these achievements, Lucy was awarded a sash, rosette and £100.00 prize money, courtesy of sponsors Alder King Property Consultants, when Fraggle was crowned ILPH Wales and West Horse of the Year at the Glenda Spooner Farm open day on September 16.
