SeaCrest: You should be good to go to register for a stable then, fallingfeather!

fallingfeather: I have, but it was never responded to. Did I do something wrong in my application?
Jun 2, 2020 15:09:07 GMT
SeaCrest: Did you PM the PPC Admin account? I don't see any unread messages, could you please bump it for me? You'll never *not* get a response, we'll always tell you what's wrong!
Jun 2, 2020 20:56:57 GMT
PPC Admin: Oh wait sorry, stable registration is done through the thread! I forgot that. Unfortunately I can't get everything squared away for you because becki is the one who does the LE stable ponies!
Jun 2, 2020 21:05:28 GMT
fallingfeather: That's ok! I don't mind not have the LE pony yet, I just want to have a thread where I can have all of my ponies in one spot. :3
Jun 2, 2020 21:17:03 GMT
PPC Admin: You're welcome to set up a thread in USR Notes in the meantime, but I don't want to piecemeal approve things in case it makes it harder for becki to catch up! When I hear back from her I'll let you know!

ADA Arianwen | NL Grey Dapple | Mare [H:100 | F:66 | Sp:30 | St:34]
Avery ✧ Show Jumping
Arianwen is a patient, methodical mare with a distinct aversion to the phrase moving fast. Sweet-tempered and well-mannered, she is a jumper of middling skill, and is popular with children at fairs and festivals. breeding cooldown from 27/04/20
SUN Crème Brûlée | NL Yellow Dun | Mare [H:100 |F:43 | Sp:44 | St:47] Breeding cooldown from 15/05/20 to 29/05/20
Lottie ✧ Cross Country By SUN Daze out of SUN Captain
Cream is easygoing and unflappable. She is very unlikely to shy or balk, which makes her a perfect pony for nervous beginners. When she isn't in lessons at Adastreia Acres, she's in training with Lottie for cross country events, which she definitely enjoys, but she seems to prefer work in the lesson ring.
ADA Ephemere | NL Smokey Black Frame Overo | Mare [H:100 | F:33 | Sp:40 | St:35] Breeding cooldown from 21/05/20 til 04/06/20
Lottie ✧ Racing
Effie is a difficult pony to get a read on. She'll obey your commands as docilely as you please, only to balk at the last moment; the only thing she'll do reliably is run. She loves to race, and is an excellent distance runner.

ADA Strawberry Parfait | LE Pink Pinto | Mare [H:100 | F:57 | Sp:41 | St:52]
Danica ✧ Show Jumping
Faith is somewhat easily distracted and tends to be quite forward in her movements. It's sometimes a struggle to get her to focus.
ADA Melia | LE Ocean Spray | Mare [H:100 | F:42 | Sp:34 | St:36]
Avery ✧ Dressage
Melia is high-spirited and strong-willed; when she gets the bit between her teeth, there's no stopping her. Despite this, she is an excellent dressage pony and shows extremely well with Avery. She does enjoy a good race along the beach, though!
ADA Aconite Lily | LE Posion Poppy | Mare [H:100 | F:38 | Sp:37 | St:32]
Avery ✧ Dressage
Lily is elegant, poised, and well aware of her looks. She enjoys swimming—it's the only thing that will get her to break her ladylike control. Despite being quite prim when it comes to adults, she adores children and will patiently let them climb all over her for hours.

Avery ✧ Dressage, Show Jumping, and Racing
Addie is the namesake of the stable, and Avery's pride and joy. Calm, collected, and gentle, Addie is an excellent mount with good paces and responsiveness to her rider's commands.
Candor is actually not an ADA stallion; he was bred at Canless Ranch by Lottie's brother, and is Lottie's pride and joy. He is full of energy and will jump anything that stands still long enough for him to race over to it.
ADA Bolero | NL Brown | Stallion [H:100 | F:35 | Sp:39 | St:60]
Danica ✧ Cross Country
Bolero is young and skittish, with a habit of shying that has yet to be changed. Adastreia Acres' staff believe he was improperly broken in, too early. As a rescue pony, he has no records, but his conformation and wind are still good, and with time and care he should develop his natural personality.
ADA Bellweather | NL Black | Stallion [H:100 | F:33 | Sp:39 | St:40]
Danica ✧ Cross Country
Headstrong and stubborn, Bell is not a beginner's pony. He requires a firm hand and an experienced rider; of the Adastreia Acres personnel, he favors Danica. The staff have standing orders to keep him away from Danica's other regular mounts, as he can get quite nasty if he sees her with another pony.
ADA Cravalho | NL Seal Bay | Stallion [H:100 | F:49 | Sp:34 |St:38]
Avery ✧ Dressage
Valentine is a steady pony, ready and willing to work. He's quite the handsome stallion, and he knows it; sometimes he can be a bit of a diva, but a firm hand and a stern reminder is enough to bring him back to earth. He does have a tendency to rest his weight further back; Avery is working with him to try and better develop his balance.

Avery ✧ Dressage By SUN José out of Unnamed
𝓛𝓔 𝓢𝓽𝓪𝓵𝓵𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓼 ✧･ﾟ:*:･｡
ADA Célèbre | LE Grand Opening | Stallion [H:100 | F:35 | Sp:35 | St:37]
Hats has shown no great talent for any of the show disciplines, and Avery is happy to use him as a lesson pony instead. He's a little silly and flighty, but he is a hard worker as long as he stays focused.
Key is somewhat flighty and easily distracted. He has lots of energy and good economy of movement, but lacks the discipline Avery looks for in a dressage pony. However, he does admirably well in cross country events; he's much more nimble than one might expect!
ADA Aletsch | LE Ocean Splash | Stallion [H:100 | F:38 | Sp:40 | St:34] Bred 13/05/20
Calliope ✧ Show Jumping
Aletsch loves to jump—his rider has to make sure that he paces himself during an event to prevent him from picking up speed through the course, and subsequently picking up deductions for sloppy jumps. His form is good, but when he gets ahead of himself he will get himself in a bind between jumps, with not enough room for properly completed strides.
ADA Larkspur | LE Poison Poppy | Stallion [H:100 | F:31 | Sp:31 | St:42]
Lethri ✧ Cross Country
𝓗𝓞𝓛 𝓢𝓽𝓪𝓵𝓵𝓲𝓸𝓷𝓼 ✧･ﾟ:*:･｡
ADA Unnamed | HOL Placeholder | Stallion [H:100 | F:50 | Sp:50 | St:50]
Avery Halliday | Owner | Dressage & Cross Country Avery is the owner and caretaker of Adastreia Acres. She is a sweet, friendly woman with a big heart and a deep love of outdoor events. She inherited her family farm when she came of age and renamed it Adastreia Acres, reducing the livestock headcount and instead focusing her efforts on breeding, boarding, and showing ponies.
Danica Bellweather | Manager | Cross Country, Dressage, & Show Jumping Dani is the day-to-day manager of Adastreia Acres, overseeing the turnout, grooming, and riding of ponies. She is bright and energetic, with a talent for getting any pony to stand still.
Lottie Canless | Stable Hand | Cross Country & Racing Lottie is a loyal friend of Avery's, having elected to work for Avery rather than play second fiddle to her older brother at Canless Ranch. She is a speed demon and revels in the fact that she always smells like ponies; she maintains it's a good way to judge who to befriend.
Calliope Katsaris | Accountant & Stable Hand | Show Jumping Callie is an accountant-turned-stable hand for Adastreia Acres. While she does still do some accounting, she is also an accomplished handler and jumper. She is a little clumsy on her own two feet, but when she rides, it's almost as if she and the pony are the same creature. Her record is spotless; she has never fumbled a jump or received a deduction for knocking a pole.
Lethri Jones | Stable Hand | Cross Country & Racing
Ophelia | Golden Retriever & Labrador | Female
Lethri is the youngest of the Adastreia Acres personnel at just over seventeen. She is cheerful and friendly, with a sort of boundless optimism that makes her somewhat impulsive. She has a service dog, Ophelia, to alert her when her blood sugar is too low, as Lethri is hypoglycemic.
Kanaloa is a powerful stallion with deep hindquarters and a competitive streak that means he has a tendency to overexert himself during a race, leaving it to his rider to pace him properly. He is best suited to sprinting, often running his opponents off their feet early on and leaving them in the dust.
