The gorgeous homebred 15.2hh 2011 bay mare Vivid Gold is a smart small hunter/riding type sportshorse cross of Warmblood and Welsh Cob with some top names in her pedigree in both dressage and jumping. With correct and lovely powerful, straight movement, before being put in foal she was ridden for pleasure mostly hacking with some light schooling and pops a wee jump but has the potential for more. In foal to the stunning Horizon KWPN silver dilute stallion, Licensed AES (by Amoureux) due around 20th May 2020 and the foal has a 50% chance of being a rare silver dilute with blonde mane/tail. She is well socialised with other horses and winters out in a herd. Good to box, trim, catch etc never been sick or sorry. Raised on a farm so used to all the usual machinery. Genuine reason for sale, International enquires also very welcome, export experienced.
Her sire Free Spirits Gold’s comes from family of riding horses who have competed and won at local & regional showing, dressage, show jumping and cross country - sane enough to do everyday riding activities, yet talented enough to win, he himself is a prolific riding club dressage winner and proven popular at shows for his consistent wins and excellent behaviour. His sire Livius was a Grade A showjumper and son of the great jumping stallion Secundus, Grade A and five times British Showjumping Sire of the year based on his progeny's winnings. His damsire Invincible B (by VDL Wellington) was also a successful Grade A jumper. - VDL Wellington competed at Advanced level dressage and was also a winner in International Showjumping, a son of "sire of the century" Nimmerdor, who has no less than 40 approved stallions including Goodtimes, Heartbreaker Aram Amethist to name but a few. Free Spirits Gold's dam Millennium Gold was invaluable to us as a broodmare. A correct and beautifully moving hunter type mare, she has the most laid back, kind nature which made her a great dam. She was unbeaten in the ring as show hunter (even at the grand age of 20) and competed successfully at local level dressage, showing, jumping and xc with numerous wins and always popular with the judges. She herself from a long line of showjumpers on sire and dam side; sire Invincible B was a Grade A showjumper and by Dutch royalty Wellington. Her dam Macroom Gold from the best RID lines also showjumped, by Gold Mist (Gold Coin) out of Slyguff Girl (Slyguff Hero, by Errigal).
Horizon (Amoureux x Domino Van T’Heike (Ferro) x Dominard) is a young stallion with a big future. At only 3 years old he was inspected and licensed by the AES and the inspector commented that he had not seen such a stunning and correct stallion in a long time. Horizon has the whole package; eye-catching looks, elastic uphill movement and beautiful conformation. He is correct and straight with wonderful elevation - the horse version of a ballerina.
Horizon`s sire is the wonderful Amoureux a consistent winner in young horse qualifiers with scores of 80%, a consistent winner at all levels in which he has competed and continues at Advanced Level dressage with Matt Burnett. Amoureux`s sire Saros Van`t Gestelhof claimed over 50 Wins up to Prix St Georges in Dressage. Over a period of of thirty years, the `Preferent` G Ramiro Z`s performance as a sporthorse and breeding sire earned him the well deserved titles `Stallion of the Century` and `King of Sires.` Bred in Holstein, born in Westfalia, licensed at Neumünster, Ramiro Z was an international performer under Fritz Ligges, a stallion that has had a far reaching influence on the greatest acheiving sports horses of today. During his own sporting career he had numerous wins at all levels of show jumping including Nations Cups, Puissance (jumping over 2.2 metre) and in international Grand Prix competition. Amoureux`s dam Erle (Elite) is an Elite mare who claimed the Belgian National Mare Championship three times. She competed with good results up to Advanced Level Dressage. Her sire is the legendary Krack C who competed successfully at Grand Prix level with Anky Van Grunsven.
Horizon`s dam is the beautiful Distella who remains with us as a highly valuable breeding mare and both of her first 2 offspring are licensed stallions (Horizon and Skyfall).
