We believe that good horses come in many forms, sizes and colours and each, as an individual, has their own special qualities that are as unique as the people who seek to buy them! For that reason we have sourced, from Spain and around Australia a selection of quality mares who have each been chosen for their collective attributes of breed type, bloodlines, movement, colour and temperament, believing each mare will compliment our stallions and ultimately produce quality, unique foals.
Whilst we understand that there are certain proven performance bloodlines we strongly believe that, notwithstanding injury or accident, every horse is capable of achieving great things but much will depend upon the circumstances and opportunities (training etc) which they are exposed to. For that reason we do not post lengthy statements about the performance achievements of the extended families of our breeding mares, however, amongst our broodmares you will find many are - dams of Royal, State and National Champions; State Champions; ex dressage and ex eventing mares; dam of exported offspring; dam whose close relations have had progeny exported back to Spain; International Movement Class winners and those that carry the bloodlines of Australian Grand Prix Dressage Champions, Olympic contenders and Olympic medallists.
And whether the horse becomes a Grand Prix dressage champion or a safe, reliable family all-rounder, if that horse has fulfilled their owners expectations and goals then they have surely achieved great things. And whilst not everyone wants to be an Olympic Dressage Rider I don't know of anyone who doesn't want a sensible, kind and reliable horse in their family.
Although it is our own preference to breed PRE and Pure Spanish horses we do occasionally have quality part-breds for sale.
We're proud to introduce Leyenda - meaning Legend - and we think she will live up to her name and produce some of the best horses in Australia to date. As a testament to that belief, her first foal - the IIU colt Imprevisto, won National Champion Entire at just 15 months of age, under the renowned Spanish judge, Ignacio Bravo. Leyenda herself is well ribboned, both in Spain (movement and morphology) and as a State Champion here in Australia. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity of having Leyenda join our stud and we're very happy with what she produces when mated to Picaro PM. Watch Leyenda's incredible movement on this short YouTube video "Leyenda"
JUNE 2013 UPDATE - Leyenda takes out Champion Purebred Female at the Mareeba & Tropical All Breeds show and receives the comment "A mare to die for".
UPDATES - Leyenda is now a proud mum to Majestic Dorado (buckskin colt/sold/SE Qld) who is showing every indication of fulfilling our highest expectations. Another Champion in the making! Leyenda's second Picaro foal, a beautiful buckskin filly - Majestic DeOra, has also been sold to SE Qld and in November 2015 we welcomed another pretty buckskin filly "Majestic Diva" (sold/WA).
OCTOBER 2016 Update. Dorado and DeOra have done us and their owners proud at the 2016 AHAA Qld State Championships. Dorado winning State Champion Spanish Gelding and DeOra State Champion Spanish Female then going on to be Supreme Spanish Exhibit of the Show. Diva has some big shoes to fill - watch this spot!
One of the more recent additions to the stud is this beautiful young Regardez Moi/Jive Magic WB mare, Penton Repertoire, who not only introduces some exciting, proven, top level dressage bloodlines to our stud but also has a magical temperament, height and spectacular movement - all chosen to compliment Picaro's own qualities with the aim of producing a Spanish/WB dressage superstar. Check out Penny's movement on YouTube - follow this link "Penton Repertoire". Penny's first Picaro foal is the 2013 Majestic Pico (sold/SE Qld), her second is the filly Majestic Picada (Sold/NSW). A very special palomino filly 'Majestic Persia' has been born in 2016, Persia will be heading off to NSW next year after weaning.
Our beautiful chestnut PRE mare of classical type, imported from Spain in 2010, Alazana was selected and purchased specifically to compliment Picaro PM in our breeding programme and we have not been disappointed with their progeny which includes Majestic Matador - Australia's first and only palomino PRE colt/stallion. Alazana is valued part of our broodmare herd and is the dam of Mencia PM (being retained), Majestic Monarco (being retained), Majestic Melosia (sold overseas), Majestic Mireya (sold/NSW), Majestic Matador (being retained/standing at stud) and Majestic Montego (sold/WA). We are looking forward to welcoming Alazana's 2017 foal in the coming weeks.
Mencia PM is out of Alazana de Montarco and was imported as a foal at foot. Genetically colour tested to be the unusual and rare Smoky Black (aka Burnt Buckskin) she is able to produce every colour of the studbook in her progeny. Mencia was lightly started under saddle before commencing her broodmare duties which started with a bang in 2016 when she graced us with a spectacular smoky cream colt - Majestic Kalico (being retained) - another first and only for Australia! Mencia's second foal, a colt, has recently arrived and will be available to purchase (photos to follow)
Bred by the world renowned Paco Marti stud in Spain we imported Farales PM in 2010, making her the first buckskin PRE mare in Australia. She remains the only PRE Apto buckskin mare in Australia. Stunning with her rich golden, dappled coat Farales also has height, elevated and ground covering movement, gentle nature and modern type - attributes that she imparts to her foals. Imported in foal to Pegaso IV our Majestic Alladora was Farales' first born foal (now a successful broodmare herself). We have since welcomed the stunning Rayadillo SG progeny Majestic Amigo (sold overseas), Majestic Amara (sold/NSW) and Majestic Astro (for sale).
This quality PRE mare with her beautiful type and eye catching movement is producing consistently excellent foals from her unions with Picaro PM. Majestic Bolero, buckskin gelding (sold/VIC) was Jackie's first born in 2013, followed by Majestic Brea (2014/sold/SEQ), enormous Majestic Bodecea followed in 2015 and now resides in NSW and her beautiful 2016 buckskin filly - Majestic Borrasca - we are delighted to have quietly maturing here!
Imported in utero with her dam Farales PM Alladora now has her own place in our broodmare herd. Sired by the buckskin stallion Pegaso IV (Spain) Alladora is remarkably similar to her dam in her type, movement and nature. She has been mated to Rayadillo SG for the following progeny... Majestic Maestro (buckskin gelding/2015/sold/WA), Majestic Miela (buckskin filly/2016/sold/QLD) and her current double dilute colt (believed to be perlino which will be confirmed by DNA testing) Majestic Mozart (being retained at this point in time).

All our visitors just love Serrena! She loves all her visitors too! Broken in before commencing her broodmare career. Gentle and confident she has passed all her qualities on to her first born filly, Majestic Promesa (see below) and the gorgeous bay filly, Majestic Poesia in 2010. Serrena was our mare of choice to carry the FIRST PICARO FOAL and she gave us the very, very special buckskin filly - Majestic Pandora in 2011 (sold to VIC), her 2012 foal is the creamy buttermilk buckskin Picaro PM colt, Majestic Picasso (sold to SA) and her 2015 colt "Majestic Picante" is almost identical to his older brother (sold to WA). Just arrived is Serrena's 2016 buckskin colt - be quick!

Promise, the oldest progeny of Serrena, above, has matured into such a beautiful and impressive young mare who has blessed us with a beautiful 2015 born Picaro filly 'Majestic Caressa' (sold/NSW). Another buckskin filly (Majestic Czara/sold) has followed in 2016.
Luminosa is a beautiful young Pure Spanish mare sired by the impressive imported black Escalera P.R.E. stallion - Luminoso GF whose parents in America (Doctor & Ladina) have been extremely influencial and are very highly regarded (achieving National Champion status). Luminosa is out of the very lovely P.R.E mare, Andaluka Vaqueta (dec'd) who has produced superb progeny. Whilst she is broken in, Lu's valuable bloodlines are proving an asset to our breeding programme. Lu's first foal, by Picaro PM, is the exceptional dark buckskin colt/gelding, Majestic Lirico born September 2012 (Sold/SE Qld). Her second foal is Majestic Lobo - everyone loves Lobo including Kristen who has welcomed him to join her equine family in Victoria. In 2015 we have been thrilled with the arrival of Lu's first filly. Back to colts again for Luminosa in 2016 - Majestic Lio - the splitting image of 'Lobo'!
