- Welsh Section D
- 13 years
- 15 hands
- Graded AES, WPCS and SPSS.
- Dilute foal guaranteed - 2011 15hh Welsh D graded SPSS, AES and WPCS. The first Welsh D to be graded with the AES - a true sports D.
Orlando is not your traditional Section D - he is able to offer bone and substance to a lighter TB or WB mare whilst also being able to refine a more traditional D or heavier mare. This combined with his exceptional temperament and versatility under saddle means that he is always a good choice for any mare. And you get the added bonus of being able to predict the colour of your foal! A chestnut mare will always guarantee a palomino, whereas a bay or black mare can produce a buckskin, palomino or smokey black foal.
Orlando is WPCS licensed and is graded with the SPSS, taking Central Grading Champion for 2020 and Reserve Champion for Britain 2020. He is also the first Section D in AES history to be graded with the society. At both gradings he gained fabulous marks but the stand out would have to be 9's and 10's for his jumping ability and an 8.75 for his canter work.
A true allrounder himself, Orlando regularly competes in dressage, showjumping and eventing as well as participating in hunting, fun rides, working equitation and whatever else we happen to fancy trying that day - he has even lead a team chase!
Ollie knows how to switch it on for a competitive rider and dial it back for a child or nervous rider who needs a bit of confidence.
It is no surprise then that Orlando is the ultimate all rounder producer. He has proven himself time and time again, not just in the progeny he produces but for the mare owners who have used him, many of them several times over! He is the type of stallion who will sire a foal who can go out and do a nice medium dressage test on Saturday and a 1.10m showjumping course on Sunday, then hacking out with the kids after work in the week.
The type of horse that you can leave without a rug and know it won't melt in the rain or have a nervous breakdown because it's been left out over night. The type that are intelligent, willing to learn and place implicit trust in you as their owner and rider. And then to top it all off......All of that in a beautiful golden package.
