Yeguada Marqués de Urquijo - Black beauty in progress
Good luck with them! I wish you so many success in competitions with boys
@Billie-Sparrow Thank u so much
Mother and daughter
In an old post we presented Rika VC and her daughter Anarquia de Borges in a nice photo when the latter was a small filly. Time has already passed and while Rika enjoys her well-deserved retirement waiting to see if she will be pregnant again or not (you already have her three children), Anarquia has started her show jumping training with Carmencita Vicario, our new sj and eventing rider.
The young mare is very mature for her age, has a very well formed head and a fairly elastic and compensated conformation. She loves to jump, which we already knew since she was little, because she spent the day galloping and playing with the other foals. She is also very attached to her rider, enjoying her company every time Carmencita goes to visit her in the box.
She indeed seems so enjoy what she does Anarquia is such a fitting name knowing how she was as a foal Hope you get many many great achivements with her!
@Celia-Acosta Thanksa We have high hopes for her and with that name sure that attracts a lot of attention haha
Preparing the future
This last month we have hired more staff with the aim of being able to train all the horses, especially the jumping ones (which are not few). Aridia la Vid and Carmencita Vicario, are the new members of the sj team, with which they are doing a very good job. His arrival at the stable was somewhat thoughtful, because we had a mission for them, or rather a decision that they should make.
Three weeks ago we were informed that a neighboring stable, located in the "País Vasco", was closing its doors and putting its last animals on sale. After a long conversation I decided to buy his last four-year-old fillies. The three mares were of Spanis Sport Horse breed, sj line. But they were bought with the only rule that we could test their abilities for a week at our facilities.
The first mare is called Oropesa, chestnut coat, with white markings in all its extensions. She is a shy girl, does not like to interact too much with other horses, but enjoys with the human contact. Oropesa comes from a family of jumpers descended from ALIGOTE 47.35% (FR) (stallion of Yeguada Militar).
The second is Ontaneda, a peculiar Tobiano bay with a lot of energy and a friendly character. Personally she is my favorite, because to be so young she's really magnificent. In she we can find power, strength and elasticity along with a sports and female conformation.
Finally there is Orgaz, daughter of horses Selle Francais. This young mare is pure love, trusts her rider quickly, is always willing to help and loves to make friends, whether it's two or four legs.
Awww .. they three are beautiful, Borja! I think it has been a great purchase.
@Irene-Duarte Thank you we also believe that it has been a good idea!
Unusual summer day
The young mares have already completely adapted to their new home. The truth is that the change has not been very big, because they lived less than 100km from the stable. For us, Orgaz is the one who is best at the moment, she is already demonstrating her potential in show jumping with her rider, Aridia la Vid. Hopefully, this young binomial will soon show what he is capable of doing in the show world.
Thanks @Jessica-Owens for the coat update, I love u
Oh, how much beauty is here!! She is beautiful, I didn't have to do much with her coat
Huge looking horse by the size of the rider! But very pretty, as yours always are Will we see her in action soon?
Black beauty in progress
Taking advantage of the last days of summer, we have begun to jump freely to all the mares to see which will continue to compete and those that we want to leave to breed or transplant embryo. After a hard examination, we obtained very varied results, mentioning PCRA Gabhriella. She's a Dutch Warmblood (Riding Horse) of Show Jumping, RDEC line, being the daughter of RDEC Zamarivo (RDEC Vinterbug x RDEC Zimba) and RDEC Germania (RDEC Ambassador x MHS Grace).
Currently Gabi, that is her nickname, is competing in SJ with Marietta Sánchez, our rider eventing and SJ. Although she is at a low level (level 6) for her qualities, she already has very good results. In addition to her good qualities, she is a very sociable and friendly mare, always looking for contact with other horses or humans. But especially she likes to receive delicious carrots or small pieces of bread.
At the moment we have a daughter of her in the stable, called PCRA Geraldine. And the Yeguada del Andaluz recently acquired an embryo from EWE Starhawk and she, resulting in a pretty chestnut filly, called Blasfemia de Borges.
We take this post to announce that we have an open auction in this moment, in which we sell an embryo of this young promise.
