Here's a bit about Esquire..
HG Esquire+ is the 2010 American Warmblood Society SIRE OF THE YEAR award recipient. HG Esquire is also Dressage at Lexington Reserve Champion stallion, a two-time Sport Horse National Top Ten Stallion, two-time Region 15 Champion Stallion, East Coast Top 5 Stallion, and winner of multiple class 'A' Championships.
HG Esquire+ has been called by many a 'Stamping Sire' as his get impress both judges and spectators alike in their uncanny resemblances in overall quality, balance, movement, and conformation. HG Esquire+ has a pedigree that he represents and sires well. You know a HG Esquire+ kid when you see them!
HG Esquire+ has a paternal line that is highly prized. The Khemosabi/Bey el Bay cross has been utilized for many years with great success. Recently announced, the mare Khemille (Khemosabi x A-Basquisette), a full sister to HG Esquire+s granddam Khastanette, produced the #1 producing mare in Brazil of all time. GCA & Sport Horses also own a Khemille granddaughter to further validate the importance of this line within our breeding program.
HG Esquire+ has a dam side that is also highly prized. The *Muscat/*Nariadni cross has been used to create some of the finest athletes that are also exquisitely beautiful. These horses grace many different disciplines from East to West Coast and across the waters. HG Esquire+s grandsire, SRP Zakhar, is a full sibling to Battle Hill Farms' most prized show and broodmare Tevkah who has produced many National and International winners.
HG Esquire+ has sired Sport Horse National Reserve Champions, Regional Champions, Reserve Champions, and many class 'A' champions also. He has sired Gold, Silver, Bronze Warmblood Inspection site medalists as well as end of year award medalist and in 2012 also became the grandsire of an AWS Supreme winner who is the son of an AWS Supreme winner sired by HG Esquire+. These two are the ONLY Purebred Arabians to receive Supreme status in the history of the AWS organization.
Not a bad cross for a lovely little grey mare who has come a very long way..
