Most folks who are already familiar with our breeding program, know about us because we produced the
famous three-day eventing pony Theodore O'Connor (deceased). For those of you who have come here to
honor his memory or learn more about his remarkable story, please be patient while we reconstitute his
original web pages.

|Welcome to the new Sportponies Unlimited Website
Enthusiastic, athletic Thoroughbred crosses for the highly motivated, smaller rider.
Sportponies Unlimited is a twenty-year-old excursion into the breeding, training, competing and marketing of
sport and hunter ponies purposely for the higher levels of competition in eventing, hunters, dressage, show
jumping and combined driving.
We produce three types of ponies, whose prices generally range from $3,500 to $20,000:
- Sport Ponies: Keen, reactive and athletic, these ponies are bred to compete against horses. As a
result, they are not for beginner or pleasure riders.
- Hunter Ponies: Eye-catching, rhythmic and balanced movers, these ponies are quieter to the jumps
and easier to develop for the average rider.
- Pleasure Ponies: Not every pony we breed ends up with the traits necessary to compete at higher
levels. Most of these ponies make excellent pleasure ponies for families or less ambitious riders to
ride on trails or show locally.

Two paternal siblings to three SPU youngsters (including two out of
the great mare "Melody," dam of Theodore O'Connor) earned silver medals on the
2012 British Olympic Team (Eventing): Miner's Frolic and Opposition Buzz, and
Teddy full brothers continued moving up the levels: Foster's Bold Favorite went

Theory has bested 30+ entries to champion in jumpers at HITS Ocala three times and
5-year-old Memorial earned 3rd place in his first start eventing.
