S/P, Andalusian and Lusitano
This majestic black champion mare stands 16:1 hands tall. Her pedigree boasts the best Spanish and Portuguese blood. As a three year old, Noche was named champion at the NE Classical Breed show. Later she became a Champion at the Eastern Regional Andalusian & Lusitano show. Needless to say, Noche has brought rave revues everywhere she has been presented. Her offspring have followed in her illustrious footsteps. For example her son, Belmonte II TCV, has proven himself in both halter and open dressage competition by winning many IALHA, USEF, and USDF titles. Noche is one of the cornerstone mares in our dressage breeding program. She produces size, substance, competitive movement, along with a great possibility of elegant black color. We are expecting her future foals to be magnificent prospects for both halter and open dressage competition.
An extraordinary pure Spanish mare who has consistently produced offspring with extreme, expressive movement and size. Her foals are nothing short of gorgeous and have the sweet and generous temperament of their mother. Finale comes from the exciting stallion, Malandante, and the equally impressive, imported bay mare Hilera. Finale brings a combination of exceptional genes on both sides of her pedigree and, as a result, the qualities that she passes on are remarkable. She is another of our proven star mares and we look forward to welcoming her future foals into our herd. Like their previous siblings they promise to be impressive prospects for the competitive dressage ring.
Zafra Do Retiro
Zafra is a magnificent bay mare from the Villa Do Retiro farm in Brazil. Her presence grabs your attention with her soft eye and comely neck. Each foal she has receives her loving disposition and friendly demeanor. She descends from Neptuno and Firme on her sire's side. Firme is the sire of the famous Olympic champion Lusitano, Novilheiro.
Xira Do Retiro
Xira is a beautiful and rare, dark buckskin Lusitano mare whose sire is Dardo II and dam is Orla Do Top. Her bloodlines are quite impressive, producing champions in her homeland of Brazil. Her foals have wonderful personalities as well as varieties of color, and beautiful movement.
Granada K is one of our very special PRE Andalusian mares for our breeding program. This awesome black 16 hand imported mare was sired by Belico, a pure Carthusian stallion who after his importation from Spain became the Costa Rican national Champion. Her dam is Diablura who combines the famous Cardenas stallion Genil (Champion of Spain) with Intrusa II, from the famous breeder of black champions, Da. M. Fernanda de la Escalera. She bestows all her babies with her regal nature, and impressive size, most have matured to 16.1 hands and above. These foals have shown great promise as dressage horses with a talent for the higher levels.
Granada K has borne us two colts, DEM El Regalo and DEM Cariño. These 2 colts will be her last, as Granada is retiring.
We were told that Ssirena has one of the rarest bloodlines in the United States. Her sire is the amazing, 100% Andrade stallion, IRREAL, from the Vilhena d'Andrade Stud in Portugal. IRREAL was brought to the United States and then imported to Australia where he is an ambassador of the Lusitano breed. This pure Andrade copper bay stallion has stamped his foals with his classical conformation and superb temperament. At 3 years old he was the champion at the prestigious Stallion Feria at Golega, Portugal. Classically trained and a successful Champion at Grand Prix, IRREAL has magnificent conformation, great character, three generous gaits including an amazing extension, and an 'unreal' temperament. He has sired numerous progeny in the USA and our Ssirena is one.
DEM Da Leche
This filly wants only to be with her people. She is out of our bay mare, Zafra Do Retiro, and the 16H Brazilian cremello stallion, Unicornio Do Retiro. Her grandsire, Othelo Do Retiro, is the best scored Isabel in the world with a 79 point score.
Our Naja has a gift of imparting color to her offspring. She has given us buckskin, palomino, bay, cremelo and gray. All her foals have her fluid movement and floating gait. Naja�s dam�s great grandfather deserves special regard. He is the famous buckskin, bullfighting stallion, Imperador. Her mix of Veiga bloodlines make her off spring extremely responsive. Private treaty.
DOB: February 28, 2011
Don E Mor has been blessed with several magnificent young fillies during the 2011 foaling season. DEM Arya is one of those fillies. Tall, strong-boned and a temperament that is exactly what the Lusitano is all about. She will be put into our breeding program as soon as she is ready. Although she has been nominated as a candidate for our breeding program, should she fall in love with a person who can take her to the highest levels of competition, we would be happy to make an agreement with that person giving us some foals later on. DEM Arya's dam is Noche Paloma and her sire is Bariloche do Arete.
