Dark bay colt by Romero XXV x Borrascosa IV
Graded August 2018
We took him to the GBPRE National Show this year where he gained a first and a third rosette. We were delighted as this was his first ever show and the very first time he had been on a lorry and away from home.
He stands 157cms tall (15.2hh) and at only three years old we expect him to be at least 15.3hh – 16hh at maturity. He has that ‘look at me’ quality and would stand out in a crowd, but he is kind, very quick to learn and wants to please.
His dam, Borrascosa IV,is one of our most successful brood mares producing foals with great potential for showing and dressage. When put in foal to Romero her foals are simply spectacular. Her pedigree is impeccable containing many old and respected studs.
His Sire, Romero XXV ,has had an unrivalled show career. He has been twice UK National Stallion Champion, UK Supreme Champion, UK Movement Champion, UK Veteran in-hand Champion, UK Veteran Ridden Champion and he has been Best in Show (mostly ‘All Breed’ shows) more than 15 times. His offspring have done him proud, several have been young stock and movement winners at the UK National Breed Show. In dressage he has offspring competing and winning at PSG and Inter 11 with one going GP this year another one competes internationally at 'Skill at Arms'.
Tabanus is good with the farrier, loads well, and has been trained in-hand for showing Spanish Style. He is a quick learner, tries to please but always has that presence which turns heads and sets him apart from others. He has been lunged with a saddle but being only three, not yet backed. Currently he is being offered at £6000 but his price will rise substantially once under saddle and in training.
