ELPHIN MOUNTAIN CONNEMARAS
2008 CCPS Halfbred Connemara Performance Award Winner
Elphin Callisto is the fifth foal out of Elphin Cassiopeia (reg. QH) by Mick. Calli was born in 2000 and is a bright chestnut standing 14.2 hh. He is named after Jupiter's eighth moon, in keeping with his mother's name. Calli was an elegant foal with floating movement and a quiet temperament.

Calli and Nancy competed in their first dressage show together on May 28, 2006. They won both their training level classes with scores of 66.36% and 70.38% and received good comments from the judge.

Nancy was very happy with Calli: "I was most impressed with his attitude for the entire day. We arrived at 9am and did not leave until 4:30. He was well behaved, warmed up nicely and acted like he had been showing for years. We had LOTS of wonderful comments from everyone there - on his great attitude, his movement and how well suited we are, as well as how darn cute he is."

Even on the lunge line Calli has already received great comments on his movement; we wish them luck in future competitions!
