Russell as he is known to his friends had retired to stud following his show jumping career which has seen him compete both Nationaly & Internationaly, earning him his BSJA Silver badge.

He had very correct confirmation, extravagant, athletic paces & a fantastic temperament.

Apart from his obvious superb Jumping lines he also has top class Dressage bloodlines.

His Sire Sultan(STB) is the sire of Geoff Billington’s Olympic horse ‘It’s Otto’ to whom he is also closely related on his Dam’s side with the two Dam’s also being half sisters. Sultan won both advanced dressage & show jumping competitions & became super champion of the Dutch tournament stallions. His pedigree has a strong French weighting, since both his sire Marinier & also his great sire Artilleur were Selle Francais stallions. Sultan’s dam sire Joost was approved under the name of Conus in Holstein & covered in his home country of Germany for several years. Sultan was also the sire of Corde who was ranked among the top German sires of Dressage horses in the FN-breeding value rating for a number of years.

Russel is a true gentleman, he passes on his elevated action, huge stride & jumping technique to his foals, adding quality & presence to any type of mare. He is a superb sire to produce top class sports horses for any discipline.

INTERNATIONAL GARDE A, BSJA SILVER DISC STALLION

He retired to stud following his show jumping career which has seen him compete both Nationaly & Internationaly, As we did not want him to get bored we decided to try a change of career & take up Dressage. He took to this like a duck to water gaining over 100 BD points in less than a year. It is a tribute to his soundness & confirmation that at the age of 19 he is level & supple enough to change career & compete at this level when most stallions are taking up a pipe & slippes!

He has wins at Elementary & Medium level & has attained scores of 77.5%. Qualifying for the Summer & Winter Semi Finals

His fertility is not restircted in the slightest by his age, he has an amazing record since he has been wth us gaining 100% fertility with on site mares in 2008 & with A.I chilled in 2009 (missing only one on site mare).
