Aspen Way Gala Nightis a stunning Riding Pony and a perfect example of the modern Dressage Pony.
His correct conformation, magnificent movement and power shows that you don't have to be 17 hands high to have international movement and expression.
Aspen Way Gala Night is trained and campaigned by successful dressage rider Maree Tomkinson at Hidden Valley in Victoria. Maree is training him progressively and in accordance with the German Training Scale.
He made his Dressage debut in spectacular form, winning the novice section with scores up to 78%. He is currently training at medium and competing at Elementary level where he is taking the dressage arena by storm.
He is about to commence medium level competition and will make his first FEI start in October at the NSW Pony Dressage Championships.
One of his dressage career highlights was being chosen to take part in Dr. Ulf Moeller's Masterclass at Dressage With The Stars 2010 and he received flattering words of congratulations and praise from the international judges.
In January 2011 Gala Night was assessed by Mr. Gerd Kust who has been involved with the Holsteiner Verband and ZDFP for the past 10 years. The results from Gala Nights assessment were outstanding scoring 82% for both Conformation and Ridden Movement. He scored a massive 9 for temperament 9 for obedience and 8.5 for Overall type. The comments from Gerd on Gala Night were, “Great Type! With good neck, shoulder and topline, an elastic canter and very well trained under saddle.”
Gala Night is the top scoring Pony Stallion of the tour and the only Premier assessed stallion. He now joins a very small number of the country's best assessed stallions in the Premier (Elite) division of the ASPR.
