There is so much to say about this wonderful stallion. He boasts a show record second to none in Autralia, being the only stallion in the country that is both APHA & PHAA Champion as well as APHA Superior All Around & APHA Versatility Award Holder. Having an APHA Superior in Halter and Superior Awards in variety of Performance events in the USA as well, and many ROM awards both in the USA & Australia.
Temperament - beautiful and gentle, conformation - correct, performance record - superb and now proving that he is a super sire.
He came to Australia in 2005, with APHA awards in Halter, Hunter Hack, Western Pleasure, Barrels, Heading, Healing & Steer Stopping. Showing his true versatility and easy going mind, we put him to the test and competed in Team Penning at the Paint Horse National Show to be awarded National Champion, then Dressage, Hacking and Hunter Under Saddle , bringing home Reserve National Championships in each, a 3rd in English Pleasure a National Champion in Hunt Seat Equitation and 3rd in Halter. Not bad for an old boy that hadn't been ridden for several years and had never done any of those performance events before!
