I had a fabulous time at the annual Breed Show held at Hartpury College with the Snelling family and Sophie & Leye! They brought four Aztec horses bewteen them so it was a great Aztec get together!
The four year old PRE stallion Aztec Ebano certainly did us all very proud, winning the ANCCE 4 year old stallion class and also taking Best Movement, Best British Bred and then Functionality Champion.
This fabulous black stallion is owned by Michelle & Paul Snelling of Gables Oast Stud and is by Currante VI and out of our foundation mare, Mariquita CR. He was handled and ridden by one of their twin daughters, Kirsty.
They also brought along their Azteca gelding, Aztec Vespertino and I was privilged to have a ride on him.
He had a successful first show, competing in large classes with more expereinced horses:
4th Partbred Geldings & Stallions
4th Novice Ridden
3rd Iberian Sportshorse Geldings & Stallions
Vespertino is by our now retired stallion Espiritu and out of our retired QH mare Alder Bandit's Belle.
Mother and daughter Leye and Sophie brought their two horses to their first Breed Show. Sophie with her smokey balck PRE gelding Aztec Recorte and Leye with her golden buckskin Azteca filly Aztec Jovana.
Both tackled the Have A Go Agility and were not at all fazed by the various obstacles.
Recorte was 2nd in the PRE & Partbred Youngstock class, just beating his half sister Jovana into 3rd place.
Both are by Currante VI and Recorte is out of Mill Natillas and Jovana out of Aztec Delfin Montana.
