Dam: IRIS was an imported mare that began a jumping career that was cut short by a tendon injury. She went on to become a broodmare and produced offspring that had successful careers in jumping or eventing. Her brother competed at 1.20m and her sister is a successful eventer.
Notes: ESPRESSO is a lovely, large-moving mare that has her sire’s stamp of inherited qualities. Her walk is very forward with good over-track, her trot is elastic and has good push from behind, and her canter is uphill and through the back. Espresso is a sweet mare but quite hot and needs a confident handler. She has proven to produce lovely, healthy foals with great potential for dressage or jumping. She is a great mother and provides plenty of milk. She is a fertile mare that is easy to breed and has foaled without complications. Espresso has been bred back to FRANKLIN and is due for a June 2019 foal.
