Sire: ROYAL PRINCE was named the USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year for five years in a row, producing licensed stallions and many Premium/Elite mares. His offspring have been champion or reserve at USDF Regional/National Championships, won the USEA Young Event Horse Championships, and are competing successfully in the hunter ring. Royal Prince himself was reserve champion at his stallion performance tests, earning 10's for rideability and walk, and 9's for trot, canter, and willingness to work. He twice represented the US at the FEI World Championships for Young Horses, including a 4th place finish in 2004, competing through Prix St. Georges. His sire, ROHDIAMANT, was a highly successful Grand Prix dressage competitor who was short-listed for the U.S. Olympic Team with Lisa Wilcox. Grandsire RUBINSTEIN I also competed at the Grand Prix Level and had a legendary influence on sport horse breeding around the world. Royal Prince's dam, PIRI PIRI, is by the influential Thoroughbred stallion PRINCE THATCH xx.

Dam: ROCKETTE, a proven broodmare receiving her star for quality of foals, was retired in 2017 and is proving to be a successful pony club partner. Several of her offspring are out competing in all three disciplines. Rockette's sire RENO (RIVERMAN X GALA/CARETINO) competed successfully up to Grand Prix with an amateur owner. Her dam LOVELY GIRL by BARRING competed internationally at the Grand Prix level.

Notes: ROCKWOOD SBF (affectionately known as Rocky) is a charming, 2014 gelding standing just over 16.1 hh. He is lightly started with walk, trot, canter, and started over cross poles and small verticals. He has a beautiful, rhythmic canter and a nice trot and walk. Rocky has been ridden on and off the property, was a volunteer at Spruce Meadows for the Young Breeders Championship as a 3-year-old, and has been to his first hunter schooling show and first dressage show in August this year. He hauls well and handles away-from-home life like a champ. One could not ask for a better personality.
