Pocahontas–dam of Chieftain and Tom Rolfe; second dam of Embros and Alzao, Barrera and Codex. Owned by Raymond Guest and was used to breed both here and in the UK/Ire. Chieftain was Shaab’s damsire. That same daughter produced another stallion, Trampler, who got a horse who finished both Badminton and Burghley as well as a horse who won a couple of events with Pippa Funnell 20 years ago. Chieftain is way back in Calico Joe. And he is the grandsire on top of Likoto, who has sired jumping, dressage, and event horses in Germany. His son Licotus is said to have done GP dressage.
Tom Rolfe is also an excellent line for sport, given that, among about twenty others with sport descendants, he sired Hoist The Flag, who is the damsire of Mytens. Mytens stood in Holland and sired two 1.60 show jumpers, Mighty Magic, and a PSG/Intermediare dressage horse–along with a whole slew of horses in all disciplines at lower levels.
Her son War Hawk II was sent to NZ, and he is damsire of a NZ FEI level dressage horse.
Pocohontas is a darned good TB line for sport. What’s interesting to me is that she seems to be in the pedigrees of a whole bunch of dressage horses. There’s a mare called Select Royal here who did dressage and is being used for dressage breeding, but I’ve forgotten her name. She had only nine foals, and four of them are in sport horse lines.
