Machismo C

Machismo 'C' is a 10yo 14.1hh Welsh/Anglo stallion bred in Victoria.

Prince, as he is also known, was purchased as a 5yo, as his rider wanted to learn from and experience breaking in and training a young dressage horse 'from the ground up' before tackling a larger (and much more expensive!) WarmBlood. The fact he was entire added to the challenge - until he was found to be as quiet as most geldings. He has such a wonderful temperament that he is even used to give pony rides to the young children of a few friends.

Don't tell him that he is 'only' a pony though - he knows he's a legitimate performance horse, and loves being treated like one too!

Prince has only started stud duties in 2011 due to the firm focus has been on gaining a performance record that warrants it first. He is now available for other serious pony dressage focused breeders. Prince has recently been used at stud to our 12yo Sanlirra Bouquet mare due in January 2012 (see more details on Taylor's page).

Prince gives the same feel of a big horse when riding him, and we've enjoyed the same challenges and euphoria as our training progresses up the levels. Many non-pony dressage riders have commented their wish to have a 16.2hh replica. Certainly, the aim is to go all the way to FEI, just like the big horses.

Until then, he happily continues spending his days making a complete mess of himself, rolling in every dirty spot he can find and giving his tummy a good rub.
