Thank you everyone for the welcome and compliments. :)
This is the first foal between Victoria and Diego and am really hoping that this cross produces a classic old Spanish type foal (with all that implies in movement, temperament, conformation, and trainability). This foal should be an excellent sized horse (for this breed anyways) at about 14.3HH to 15HH. I am aiming at producing working equitation horses (can't have big horses for that sport or you wont do as well), classical dressage horses, and trail/endurance horses.
I am planning on doing some limited distance rides next year on my stallion, exhibitions (to introduce people to the breed), dressage, and working equitation (which includes dressage, but doesn't give big points for a natural extended trot. This helps a lot in getting high scores for breeds - like the classical Spanish horses that do not naturally have a big extended trot like a warmblood does). Diego will be in Texas for training for about 8 months or so. Really excited about him being so well trained! I am hoping to be stationed at Camp Pendleton as it has some amazing and gorgeous trails. This base also has its own stable. :)
