"Invasor" Lipizzaner Stallion

I was busy watching some KURs this morning and came across this gorgeous Lipizzaner stallion. He was stunning and give credit to the rider Rafael Soto for bringing him up all the way to the olympic arena against all the warmbloods.
Why I am bringing this up is because of hard this horse worked during his entire test. At one point he actually got confused while doing a piaffe and started to do the spanish walk which I thought was cute. He tried soooo hard!

Just watching him work so hard and how the amount of talent these guys have would really make me consider getting one (If I hadnt already collected so many horses

I tried to look up a web site for him or a way of looking up breeding information about this stud. Tho I don't have plans on breeding this stallion is fantastic.
If anyone is able to help me find info on this pair it would be greatly appreciated. I just can't seem to find anything online.

Horse again is: Invasor ridden by Rafael Soto

Thanks a bunch!

I'm fairly sure Invasor is a PRE, not a Lipizzaner. He is quite amazing to watch though, isn't he? His work ethic is incredible! I actually have him on video from the Volvo World Cup back in 1998. That tape is one of the few reasons that I still have my old VCR :P

Here are a few videos, if anyone wants to see:

And an article about his retirement:

Rafael Soto and Invasor are simply awe-inspiring to watch. I saw them on TV a few years back and found myself nearly falling off my chair. Just when you think that Invasor is giving it all he's got (say, in the passage), he gives more of himself, and then more again! I've never seen anything like it.

At the end of several of their performances, the pair would exit the dressage ring in Spanish Walk. Of course, the audience generally LOVED this, but the pair was also scorned for performing "circus tricks".

A friend of mine was able to attend SICAB (National Breed Championships of the Pure Spanish Horse) in 2006 where Invasor was officially retired. Oh, to have been able to attend!

That horse has a heart of gold. I can only have imagined how wonderful it would have been to be there.

Invasor is a PSA or Purebred Spanish Horse and is not a Lip. :)

Hello!!

I´m spanish, jeje, when I am seen that Invasor is a lipizzaner....jejeje, IS A PURE SPANISH HORSE (pura raza español, PRE), jejeje. I love our spanish horses...

Invasor is a stallion of "real escuela andaluza del arte ecuestre" of Jerez, Cádiz (Spain). At the moment, he isn´t working because he has an injury in his legs.

(sorry for my bad English)
