Romance was born on 15/5/17 at just 314 days gestation. Despite arriving earlier than expected she’s been strong and healthy from the day she was born and looks as if she will make around 16.2hh.

Romance is by the international GP stallion Belissimo. He was shortlisted for the Olympics and has sired several top GP horses including his wonderful son Benicio who won the Bundeschampionat before going on to become a very successful Grand Prix stallion. Belissimo is renowned for passing on a wonderful, trainable temperament which is why I chose him. Kind, trainable and talented horses are what everyone really wants and if they have the ability to become Grand Prix horses then everyone wins.

Romance is beautiful and pingy! She really gets off the ground in trot and is uphill in canter. She’s also a sweetheart who loves cuddles. When we were plaiting her up for her photoshoot she fell asleep as she was enjoying the fuss so much. I think this one has the potential to become a very talented dressage horse with the ability for a professional but kind enough to suit a talented amateur.

She will be going to the AES Elite Foal Auction at Addington on 18th August, 2017. Will you be there? She’d love to meet you.
