Rosinante, 2001 16.1 hand Hanoverian Mare $15,000

Elegant mare by Rubino Bellissimo out of AHS mare by Batido (Bolero X Wendekreis), which gives her two crosses to this valuable “B” line in addition to being a Rubinstein granddaughter. This blood guarantees super rideability. Although she has been used mostly as a broodmare, she received 90 days pro training in ’07 and proved to be not only talented, but very willing and extremely safe. Ruby would be suitable for a young rider or an AA – she adores people and is extremely social towards everyone. She is a total charmer – you will fall in love with this unique gal. Her pedigree points towards dressage or lower level eventing (Ruby loved the jumping chute!). She is approved AHS and RPSI. Ruby has had two foals, including RPSI inspection-site winner “Sef,” (Sempatico) in ’06. Sef not only was awarded a Gold Premium grading, but his score of 8.3 ranked him in the top 20 in the nation of the 600 foals inspected that year! I would prefer Ruby go to a home where riding would be her primary job, as she seems to crave more human attention. She is modestly priced at $15,000 to insure flexibility in this matter. I will even consider payments for the perfect owner. Contact Katrina at (208)265-4837 or email for more info and an extensive video. Click here to see a short video.
