Jordana is known for her beautiful elevated, floating movement and stands at almost 16.2H. She was purchased by Paul & June Clelland, of Alberta Canada, while Conquistador was in-utero.

 

Conquistador�s sire, Indiano XVIII (1985) was bred by Don Joaquin Conesa of Nobleza del Guadiana. (Spain).� Snr. Conesa was awarded �Breeder of the Year� by ANCCE at their national breed show, SICAB 2004� (Spain�s largest annual PRE exhibition with a quarter million spectators!).�

 

Dante�s sire and dam are both gray, the dominant color in the breed. They each carry a hidden (recessive ) BLACK gene.� Dante was the first ever BLACK offspring sired by Indiano.� Dante was not bred specifically for color, but for quality! He is primarily from the line called Cartujano or Bocado, a distinguished group of horses said to have been kept pure of outsize influences by the Monks who kept careful breeding records for many centuries.

 

Indiano�s sire & dam were bred by Romero Benitez, a multi-generational breeder of champions tracing his stock back to the Carthusian or Bocado horses from the turn of the century. Some believe this line is the purest line of Spanish Horses, given their extraordinary round, baroque outline, elevated movement and almost profound capacity for versatility.

 

Before being exported from Spain, Indiano was undefeated in conformation and movement. He was honored on 6 occasions with championships, including Gold Medal, & champion of the breed awards. Twice he was Supreme Champion of Functionality.�

 

After his importation to Mexico, Indiano was awarded Grand National Champion of Champions in Mexico. Indiano has sons & daughters in Spain & Mexico winning at top levels.�

 

In addition to his sire�s heritage, Conquistador carries bullfighting lines from his dam�s side farther back in her pedigree. He has sired colts who carry this strong influence,� possessing� the maneuverability of a mount suited to face the bull ring.

 

Conquistador is a Best Movement, Conformation and Performance Champion.� He has successfully competed at a number of specialty breed and open dressage competitions.

 

Thank you June & Paul Clelland, Pine Meadow Farms, Alberta Canada,

for the unique privilege of acquiring Conquistador.
