Sea Lion: Offspring in the Ribbons

Sea Lion's offspring have been making news. It's appropriate for the very versatile Thoroughbred stallion that his offspring are winning or placing in three different disciplines. Sea Lion himself has won championships in Advanced level eventing and 1.20 meter jumpers. Meet five of his oldest offspring, who are doing their dad proud.

TGS Lion's Sunshine (born 2019)

TGS Lion's Sunshine was 2020 Future Event Horse Yearling Regional Champion, and finished 3rd nationally.  She is by Sea Lion xx out of Windfield All Sunshine (RID, by Bridon Belfrey - Irish Draught). She was bred by Ann S O'Donnell, who has this to say about her: "'Rooney' is an elegant, powerful, conformationally correct filly with solid Irish bone, a good mind and a sporthorse presence. She has a great temperament, good feet, a willingness to do the work...all traits to look for in an equine athlete.  The Thoroughbred x Irish Draught cross has elevated my sporthorse breeding program and I am convinced that whatever discipline is your aim, a plus to any breeding program is the introduction of Sea Lion TBJC." Ann also bred her half-sister by Sea Lion, Sealebrity, and says both "possess a friendly approach to people and inquisitive natures that brings joy to all who have met these two Sea Lion offspring."

Northern Quest Lionheart (2016)

Northern Quest Lionheart was Dressage COP Level 1 Champion in 2020, and is also starting his eventing career. The above photo was taken this year in North Carolina, with rider Nick Olijslager. Lionheart was bred by Marisa B Frazier. He is by Sea Lion xx out of Northern Quest Special Sea (Irish Draught by Rhyd's Sea Quest).

Sea Lioness (2016)

Sea Lioness was bred and is owned by Sea Lion's owner, Pam Fisher of Ruffian Stables. She was the Future Even Horse 4-year-old National Champion West Coast in 2020. Her first horse show was this past weekend, the Temecula National Horse Show at Galway Downs. Kristin Hardin was in the irons, and owner Pam Fisher reports, "She took Reserve Champion in one division and won the Jumper Stakes class over .75. She will continue to move up the levels, and she will do her first event, with me riding, on June 18th." Sea Lioness is by Sea Lion xx out of Princess Kaballah, by Cairo.

Northern Quest Lioness (2016)

Winning at Novice level eventing. Bred by Marisa B. Frazier, Northern Quest Lioness is by Sea Lion xx out of Silver Lady. 

Northern Quest Blue Sea (2014)

Northern Quest Blue Sea is the oldest of Sea Lion's offspring, and has been competing successfully in eventing. She has had good results at Beginner Novice and Novice, then moved up to Training and some Preliminary level. She was the winner wire to wire of the Sporting Days Farm Horse Trials in South Carolina under Nick Olijslager, putting them on the USEA top ten leaderboard. She is by Sea Lion xx out of White Diamond (Irish Draught Sport Horse by Rockrimmon Silver Diamond).
