Congratulations to Elly B. of Wendover, Ontario, on the purchase of Vigilante RGS (aka “Marvel”). We were sad to see him go but also thrilled that he has gone to a great home where we know he will get top notch care and be produced well in the years to come. Look out for this pair in the jumper ring in a few years! 😊
2019 branded Hanoverian gelding by Valentino, out of Valencia III (Indoctro/Calido I/Lord Calando). He is a top prospect for jumping, eventing, or hunters. “Marvel” is truly the whole package: pedigree, conformation, movement, and temperament. He has an impressive pedigree, bred for sport. Sire Valentino is in the top 1% of all German sires. He competed to 1.40 m himself, has produced 1.50-1.60 m jumpers, and was ranked #8 on the WBFSH world sire rankings for eventing in 2019. Damsire Indoctro has consistently been one of the top ranked jumping and eventing sires in the world. He has sired numerous 1.60 m jumpers, including a number of Olympic competitors (represented by 2 direct offspring at the 2016 Olympics, and 5 at the 2012 Olympics). Marvel comes from a versatile performance family: his maternal half sister is competing at 1.40 (Barbara HPF, by Autobahn) and his maternal brother won 5-year-old Dressage Suitability at Dressage at Devon (Arioctro HPF, by Ariadus). He has three good gaits with a particularly good canter. Best of all, he has an unbeatable temperament – he is brave, personable, and extremely easy to work with.
