SF Andalusians is proud to produce quality Andalusians. Malagro is a fine example of our program. His sire is a National Champion Halter Stallion, who is known for the movement that he passes on to his offspring. His dam is a lovely mare by the Qualified PRE stallion, Dominante XXIX. Dominante was a successful dressage horse, reaching Grand Prix level.
Malagro is straight and morphologically correct. His smart and willing temperament makes him a pleasure to be around.
At the 2018 IALHA National Championship Horse Show, Malagro won both the National Champion Dressage Sport Horse In-hand 3 years and under Colt class, AND the National Grand Champion 2 years and under Colt halter class!
At 3, we started him to drive. The winter of 2019 we started his saddle work. He has shown to be very athletic, sensible and willing.
Despite the pandemic during 2020, we were able to get him into public at Working Equitation shows at the Intro level. He put up scores in the 60's and 70's. We finished the year taking him Novice A, and we are very pleased with how he did with adding the canter work and Speed phase. His first time out at Novice A, he was scoring in the 60's. And he was level headed enough to let us do a Costume Musical Freestyle, where we had him dressed up like a scarecrow. By the year's end, Malagro was the second place, WE United Year-End High Point Purebred Andalusian, just one point behind the winner!
The sky is the limit as to where this young gelding's future can lead.
