Epona's Rose of Tralee Rafael (WB) x Bridon Glenlaurel RID
Rose is by Rafael Registered GOV (German Oldenburg Verband) and approved RPSI. 2010 & 2011 #1 colt in the country for his age sex & breed with USDF and this time went Champion Stallion with California Dressage Society. Sired by Hanoverian Rosenthal, 2007 #1 USEF dressage sire, 2012 USEF # 3 hunter sire, grandsire Rubinstein. Wonderful dressage lines. Rafael has also been chosen by South Korea to be a foundation for their new breeding program for International caliber horses.
Rafael's dam is by the North American foundation Trakhner stallion Beatue. His lineage reads like a Who's Who in the Trakehner world and includes such notables as Totilas, Handschelle, Humboldt and the legendary stallions Buzzard and Pythagoras. Beaute often throws his trademarks--large size, quiet temperament and smooth gaits.
Laurel goes back to the 4 foundation Irish Draught stallions. She takes after the Mountain Pearl line that offers fantastic movement combined with a wonderful temperament. He is a top sire of event horses and dressage with offspring scoring 10s on their jump. His son Bridon Beale Street is one of only 2 RIDs to event at Intermediate. Laurel's offspring are wonderful amateur horses.
She also descends from the great show jumping line of Flagmount Diamond who sired Hopes are High (won the 1998 De Maurier Grand Prix with Nick Skelton(BG), Grands Prix at Dublin and Dijon, and the Team bronze at the WEB, King Geroge V Gold Cup at Hickstead and was ranked 15th by the WBFSH. Rakish Paddy Grade A show jumper. Flagmount Diamond also sired Grade A showing jumping stallion Diamond Chin, who in turn sired Eezy, who won the US Jumping Derby at Del Mar and the Grand Prix of San Diego. He is also sire to the grade A show jumping mare Lady Glen, dam to John Whitaker's Diamond Cliff who won the speed class at 'Hertogenbosch CSI-A in 2000.
Rose has been friendly from the start and came to me in the field day 1. She is inquisitive and curious of new things. Would be suitable for most disciplines but her movement will set her apart. Will be 17-17.1 hands. VIDEO: W/T/CWorking (including 1st jumps)
