Dressage at Devon Analysis: Sneak Preview

I had a lovely time at the Dressage at Devon breed show 2018, in spite of the rain. What I saw in 2018 were American-bred winners being the rule rather than the exception. Of the horses in breed classes who scored over 80%, three-quarters were US-bred. Of the five top-scoring horses of all the breed classes, four were bred in the US. My full article, with horse and breeder profiles, will appear soon. Watch my news blog. ...read more

Vallado (aka Praise)

Top Hunter Derby Stallion, Offspring winning in US & Europe
A very versatile stallion who was approved with the AHS in 2016, Vallado will suit a variety of mares. Champion of his 30-day Performance Test, Vallado earned scores of 9.25 for character and rideability. He competed as a Jumper up to 1.40 meters before his type, style, and rideability caught the eye of top Hunter professionals. Renamed Praise, he racked up wins in both the High Performance Hunter division as well as in International Hunter Derbies.

This same versatility can be found throughout his pedigree. Vallado’s sire is the Voltaire son Now or Never M, who has a very high breeding value of 152 points for jumping on the German FN’s ranking system. Vallado’s damsire is the Thoroughbred Saros. This particular Thoroughbred line has had a strong influence in sport horse breeding and is also seen through the Trakehner stallion Consul.

Vallado is producing elegant, modern offspring with great athletic ability and rideablility. He has two approved sons, including Silver Creek’s Validation who was Champion of his 70-Day Stallion Test. Vallado offspring have competed at the World Championships for Young Jumpers in Lanaken and are winning in both the jumper and hunter rings. The type and character Vallado offers can be advantageous for all sport horse breeders. He does not typically add size and offers a medium bone and compact frame that compliments many of today's mares.
