Valencia was born June 21st 2009 out of Vienta, a stunning Paso Fino mare, by Valiente, a Champion Andalusian stallion. This was an intentional cross in the hopes of cultivating the best qualities of both breeds. I do believe that objective was achieved. She has the greater mass, short back, big movement and presence of the Andalusian, while maintaining the refinement, flare and quickness of the Paso Fino. She`s also inherited her mother's dun and creme dilution gene which accounts for her lovely smoky dappled buckskin coat. She's been lightly under saddle since she turned three and is calm and sensible enough for a child to ride. She's done some cattle work and trail rides and will go over most any obstacle without a fuss. Even swim with a rider! She already understands leg yields and is sensitive and responsive. She's been barefoot her whole life and has excellent feet. She's been ridden bitless as well and responds just fine. She's very hardy and thrifty. She hasn't shown sign of having inherited her mother's Paso Fino gait but has a powerful yet graceful trot. She has the genetics to produce gaited foals if bred to a gaited stallion and may one day gait herself but I believe she is now ready to go and excel in any discipline that favors the trot. She currently stands at about 14.3hh as a 3 yr old so I'd guess she'll finish at 15hh or more. With her medium size, strong build and solid disposition she could do anything from driving to various English or western disciplines with any level or size of rider.
She is eligible for registry with the International Andalusian and Lusitano horse association- IALHA.
She recently weaned a stunning colt so she is now a proven breeder.
She is offered for sale for $6000.
Valencia's Dam - Vienta TDR.
Vienta is an amazingly versatile buckskin Paso Fino mare with some legendary sires in her lineage like Dulce Sueno and Batalla. She has a sharp mind, lovely carriage and is super surefooted and agile. She's been a working ranch horse her whole life and will swim rivers, drive cattle and clear any obstacle without losing her supple control.
Her Sire - VMF Valiente.
This gorgeous Revised PRE bay stallion stands 15.3HH. He exudes brio, has great bone, beautiful lines and an electrifying trot. Valiente's incredible movement makes him an eye catcher where ever he goes, whether it's under saddle or behind a cart. Valiente's sire is Quimerico KF a wonderfully trained "at liberty" demonstration stallion. His grand sire is Mareo, a beautiful bay stallion imported from Mexico, who is currently being shown in dressage and has numerous gold medals for movement.
