Royal Grande is a gorgeous young colt who according to the judges has "great elasticity in his gaits and consistantly presents himself with uphill movement". That movement and his excellent conformation earned him GOLD Premium Status at his RPSI inspection in August.
Though he can be a riot and enjoys playing chase with the fillies in the field, he is sweet and calm enough to be a big "lap-dog" too. He has great potential.
His price reflects his great potential but he is eligible for our one year payment plan terms (serious inquiries only please)...... (read more)with discounts offered for show homes.
Royal Grande's Impressive Lineage includes the olympic producing keur stallion Ulft on his sire's side, and Grande Saber on his dam's side...
RUBIN O (Royal Grande's Sire)
is Ulft, a keur stallion which means that he has produced numerous great sports horses. Ulft is one of the best stallions the Dutch Warmblood studbook has ever had. The Keur stallion Ulft is the father of seven approved sons in Holland alone, including Olympic Ferro (Ulft/Farn).
Ulft's most well known son is Ruben O's half brother "Olympic Ferro", who was the 2000 Olympic Silver Team Medalist in dressage and is ranked #1 in the World Stallion Rankings. Ulft is by the famous Le Mexico, high producer of top jumpers. Le Mexico gos back to Furioso xx, the sire of Furioso II. Ulft is out of Pia, by Pericles xx, the sire of the pinto stallion Samber.
Ruben O is out of Wimona, by Wagner. Wimona is out of Simone, by Matador. Matador is by the great Marco Polo. Wimona, was shown in both dressage (4th level) and in showjumping.
Ruben O received a 1st premium on his exceptional conformation and gaits as a youngster. He ranked in the top of his class in the Netherlands, and got great comments from the 'keuring' judges on his floating and swinging trot. Ruben O has the mind and gaits to make a great Grand Prix horse but due to an injury as a youngster he could not be competed.
