Sire: A sportsman from head to toe, that's how BUCKINGHAM presented himself at the licensing in Vechta in 2013. Under saddle, he has thoroughly reached all expectations, and it was no surprise that he became the best dressage horse of his stallion performance test with a breeding value of 154 for dressage. His three fantastic basic gaits and his constant willingness to perform were rated with outstanding scores, and the test riders were absolutely delighted, awarding him a 9.5 for his rideability. This athletic ability is no coincidence. Buckingham’s sire BORDEAUX was placed 4th at the World Championships of Young Dressage Horses with Eva Möller, and Buckingham's dam sire, ROUSSEAU, was second in this same event.
Dam: SPLENDOR was awarded her Premium status with the birth of this foal and completion of her mare performance test. She scored 8's for breed and sex type, head, and saddle position, a 7 for swing/elasticity, correctness, conformation, and general impression. She won her mare performance test with a lovely presentation. Splendor is a very modern mare which has earned her a position in Thelma and Louise broodmare band.
Notes: BEAUJOLAIS is the first foal out of our Premium Mare SPLENDOR. She is by BUCKINGHAM who impressed the Hanoverian Verband with his dual-purpose abilities. This filly has a long and floating stride and will be a lovely ride. Her sweet nature and excellent work ethic combine to make a very cooperative partner. In spite of her impeccable dressage breeding, she has rather an impressive run through the jump chute. Check out her video. Radiographs are available for your consideration. If you are looking for a dressage horse, look no further.
