Ariadus x South Pacific x Capitol Hill
Aria is a 2007 gray stallion of Holsteiner breeding, bred by SE Farm of Oregon. Although Aria's bloodlines are jumper based, he has expressive, elegant gaits and he has started his show career in dressage. He has been shown successfully at Training and First level scoring in the high 60s, and has scored an 8 for his gaits by the judges. We are currently showing Third level / schooling Fourth. Once he achieves the necessary Fourth Level scores, he will be presented to the BWP (Belgian Warmblood) for approval. Aria stands 16.3, is light on his feet and has an elegant build. He is not the typical big-boned and big-bodied type that Holsteiners are known for. Some consider him the more "modern sport horse."
Perhaps Aria's best feature is his quiet demeanor and easy-going temperament. He is not spooky at all, is amateur-safe, a gentleman to handle, and loves to ride on the trails. G.P. trainer Linda Smith, whom Liz and Aria train with, constantly remarks, "He's such a tryer - he'll do anything for you!" Don't let his laid-back temperament fool you.... he loves to gallop and happily does so almost daily in his pasture! He always enjoys jump chute training as well.
Aria has sired 2 foals to date: a colt in 2014 bred to a Selle Francais mare for eventing / showjumping who's name is Aristocracy RBF, and the 2015 filly "Kavatina" out of Liz's dressage-bred Dutch mare Alita. (See the sales page for more info.) A third foal is expected in 2019 crossed with a beautiful gray Lusitano mare.
