True black FEI horse!

Virago, striking black FEI horse (by Olympic Ferro out of a Dirk mare). She has very elegant presence with an impressive pedigree. Super schoolmaster with excellent bloodlines! This lovely 16.1h black mare is an excellent teacher, safe and fun to ride. Shown through PSG with a professional, this lovely mare has taught her AA owner everything she knows. No vices and clean current X-rays available. Located in Middleburg, VA. This horse is perfect for someone who enjoys their riding and training but is not super focused on showing, the mare becomes very tense at horse show and that is reflected in her scores. Price negotiable!

Royal Tribute is a stunningly elegant 2006 son of the late Royal Prince. Standing at a leggy 18h, this horse has fantastic rideablilty, balance and presence. He possesses a tremendous work ethic and works very hard for his rider.

 

His impressive gaits are easy and comfortable to ride and he also loves to hack out! This very friendly and personable gelding truly has it all for any rider. He is SAFE and forgiving and a total superstar at horse shows, he really shines in the ring, scores to 67%+ at PSG and 70%+ at Fourth Level. We have all the faith in the world that this horse will be a top FEI contender.

 

Easy to handle, load, work around and an all around pleasure in the barn, no issues or vices. We will even throw in the extra tall mounting block with purchase :) Don't let his size scare you away, he is currently in full professional training but is as easily ridden by a 5'3" AA female as well as a 6' tall man!

Notes from his November, 2017 ATA Inspection, aged 2.5 years.

Citori is a modern, athletic sport horse stallion that shows good Trakehner type.  He is well balanced and well-proportioned. He has a nearly ideal frame with a strong and smooth topline with an excellent coupling. His foundation has very good hind legs and his hooves are well shaped and proportional to his size.

He has cat-like reflexes with a quick hind leg that comes off the ground nearly instantaneously in what the Verband judge termed “electric”. His walk had good rhythm but he would benefit if it was more supple. His trot had good cadence and he adequately covered enough ground.  His canter was his best gait being pure, uphill and quite active from the hindquarters, again with a hind leg that is quick off the ground.

Citori is named after a sporting shotgun manufactured by Browning Arms.  It is quite fitting because he is an explosive jumper.  He is fearless with no hesitation over obstacles and jumps with a great deal of power and scope.  He has very good front and hind leg technique over the jumps.

His dam, Chianti, is an Anglo-Trakehner making this stallion 25% Thoroughbred close-up in the pedigree.   His mother line traces to the Thoroughbred family 12B.  This horse has a bright future as a potential show jumper or possibly an event horse and, as a sire, should impart jumping talent that is needed in the Trakehner breed.
