Introducing our junior stallion prospect…
(Empire's Power x Ruby Red x Carolina’s Red Fox)
Bright Bay Farm proudly introduces Willpower. He possesses all the traits we look for in a successful sire including incredible movement, talent, athleticism, outstanding conformation, and an unbeatable temperament. He stands 13.3 hands and makes a lovely cross with ponies or horses. He is a gorgeous chestnut/sorrel with plenty of chrome. He is super friendly, brave, and sweet. He has a huge step and beautiful floating trot, balanced canter, and natural lead change. We couldn't be more thrilled with his first foal, Willadore, and expect him to continue to pass on his outstanding train-ability, movement, & conformation to his foals. Willpower has the beauty, movement, style and temperament to sire top hunters.
Willpower’s Sire, Empire’s Power, is a 14.3 hand Welsh cross stallion, imported from Holland, passing on beauty, talent, and brains. He is consistently top ranked USEF Pony Hunter and Pony Hunter Breeding sire. He has sired many hunter pony champions all over the U.S. including, but not limited to, Empire's Victory (2014 USEF Pony Finals 2nd Overall Large Greens), Yes It’s True (2013 USEF Pony Finals Grand Green pony champion), Empowered (2011 Devon- Best Young Colt & Class Winner, 2011 Upperville- Best Young Pony). He has an impressive win-producing record, siring multiple Devon pony hunter breeding winners and performance at top shows including WEF and HITS.

Willpower's Dam, Ruby Red is a gorgeous top of the line small welsh pony mare. She is by Carolina’s Red Fox x Farnley Spinneret x Farnley Frere Jacques. Great mover and jumper. She has a lovely head, short back and correct conformation. She is extremely calm and is a wonderful childs pony. She is extremely well mannered and easy to handle. She has an un-beatable temperament that she passes on to all her foals. Her foals are all ‘born broke’. They don't come any more safe, quiet, or sweet than Ruby. She is a once in a lifetime pony. Ruby is an all around beautiful mare!
Dam Sire, Carolina’s Red Fox, is one of the most influential pony hunter stallions of the modern day. 1985 Welsh Section B stallion by Carolinas Purple Emperor (Solway Master Bronze x Eden Blue Bunting) out of Downland Dresden (Downland Chevalier x Downland Dignity) was imported from Wales as a yearling. Red Fox had numerous wins on the line in England before arriving in the States. With limited showing, he was the Eastern Welsh Circuit and WPCSA National Champion Section B stallion in 1993, and he was awarded his WPCSA Sire Legion of Merit last year. While Red Fox has definitely left his mark on the Welsh breed in general in this country, he will probably be most remembered for the huge impact he has had on hunter pony breeding in the United States. His get have been winners at "A" circuit hunter shows all over the country, have been USEF national hunter pony champions and have won numerous times on the line at various prestigious hunter pony breeding shows like Devon and Upperville. In 2002, Carolina's Red Fox was the USEF #1 Hunter Pony Sire. His stature as a leading sire of Welsh and hunter ponies is without question, but equally important was his wonderful attitude and loving personality which he has consistently passed on to his offspring.
