Sophia is a lovely type of mare with lots of bone, long floating movement and a very sweet temperament.
She is absolutely one of the best Sec B mares you can find and we are so grateful to Jessie and Joe Parry at Eyarth for selling her to Mia! And I´m gratefull to Mia who has sold her to us! She is now back with my friend Mia! Sophia is a very good breeder and two of her progeny, Eyarth Osprey and Eyarth Linnet are very successful in-hand and are both Champions. Osprey is also successful under saddle and was 6th at HOYS 2010, and after that he has become a Hoys vinner. Her latest filly, Eyarth Siskin, is retained by Eyarth Stud and has already won as a foal.
Sophia is by the legendary Cottrell Artiste, studstallion at Lemonshill and her dam is the even more legendary Eyarth Zsa Zsa. She is the dam of numerous Champions including Eyarth Rio, Eyarth Beau Geste, Eyarth Thowra, Eyarth Mowgli, Eyarth Tomahawk and many more.
Both Sophias sire and dam are Royal Welsh Champions.
Sophia herself is also Royal Welsh Champion, she won the Barren mare class 2003. She has also many other wins and Championships.
At her first outing in Sweden, she was Supreme Champion at our National Show.
