HABANERO XLI, Sire: DESNUDO, Dam: SALEROSA XI
14/01/1999, 165cms, 22cms bone, BLACK Ee aa
2010 UK NATIONAL FUNCTIONALITY CHAMPION AND RESERVE UK NATIONAL CHAMPION STALLION
2011 UK INTL FUNCTIONALITY CHAMPION AND RESERVE UK CHAMPION STALLION (GBPRE SICAB QUALIFIER SHOW)
The only Grand Prix trained black CALIFICADO (Superior breeding status) stallion in the UK. He is capable of producing either black or chestnut offspring (Ee aa) and has already got an impressive competitive career behind him, having competed successfully up to INTER I level in his native Spain, and now also in the UK.
HABANERO combines the lines of the Yeguada Militar (Spanish State Stud), including the proven movement stallions JENSON and CESAR, with the outstanding traditional bloodlines of one of the oldest Spanish breeders, ARPA (Yeguada Militar and Terry origins). He is one of less than 30 black Calificado stallions in the world and offers the very rare combination of a traditional stamp of PRE, together with superb movement for competition dressage. He has already sired over 140 foals worldwide, some of which are competing in dressage in the USA and his native Spain, whilst others are National Champions in the show ring. One of his daughters is National Champion mare of Australia.
In 2010 at the UK National Breed Championships, in his first UK outing, HABANERO achieved 1st in every class he entered, including 7 yrs plus stallions class, joint highest Movement, Reserve National Champion Stallion and Overall UK National Functionality Champion (combined Morphology, Movement and ridden sections). In the 2011 SICAB Qualifier Show, first of it’s kind in the UK, he swept the board AGAIN, winning the 7yrs plus stallions class, Reserve Champion Stallion and Overall Functionality Championship.
He has more than proved his Superior status in the show ring and is now concentrating on forging a successful dressage career. His movement, type and outstanding temperament make him a stallion suitable for any mare – he is a true horse of a lifetime.
HABANERO has been in full time training with Andrew Gould since early 2011 and is winning at Premier League level. He qualified for the BD Regional Championships at Prix St George and PSG Freestyle levels, gaining his Personal Best in the Regionals of 72.92% and securing a place at the BD National Championships with his performance. His first INTER I in spring 2012 was a fantastic performance securing 5th place overall (PSG-GP class) and winning his INTER I section. Lots more to come from this incredibly talented horse and rider combination.
HABANERO made history by scoring almost 70% (69.96%) at the 2012 UK British Dressage National Winter Championships gaining a 7th place in the very strong Championship class. This is the highest score ever achieved by a PRE at National level in the UK.
