Real Love, bay Rheinländer gelding by Riccione/Landadel, born in 2005, standing approximately 16 hands.
5 year old full brother qualified for the Bundes Championat
At his first outing he was already the sovereign winner of a
riding horse class!
This boy could be a superb FEI young horse candidate!
Real Love, an absolute dreamhorse. This precious boy was sired
by Riccione, the
infamous worldwide renowned Dressage producer. Riccione is a rare specimen of
conformation, temperament and proven heritability.
A golden ribbon – the sign of victory for this young boy in
a riding horse class!
He was one of the most wanted candidates at the 1998
Hanoverian Stallion Licensing making a big impression with his highly noble
appearance and extravagant movements. He won riding horse tests and champions'
finals with scores of 9.0 and higher. In his Stallion Performance Test he
confirmed the expectations of the breeders by scoring the highest for ride
ability (both guest judges scored: 10.0) and became the Reserve Champion of the
test. Riccione won several M-level classes and is training at Grand Prix level. Riccione's
sire Regazzoni was
the Champion of the Stallion Performance Test in Münster-Handorf and became
Reserve Champion at the 1995 Bundeschampionate. His dam State Premium Mare Arosa
received the top score of 10.0 for ride ability from the judges and guest judge
riders in her Mare Performance Test. With the extraordinary beautiful Trakehner
Arogno as sire and the Hanoverian foundation stallion Bolero
as dam sire, Arosa carries classical dressage blood.
Riccione's offspring convince with their type and movement. They are highly sort
after at auctions in Hanover, Westphalia, Bavaria, and further a field. He has
twelve licensed sons just from his first crop of foals of which two were Reserve
Licensing Champions and two reserve 30-day test champions. He also produced
several Bundeschampionate finalists and State Premium Mares. Furthermore, Riccione
was highly placed in the NRW Heritability Index for stallions of his year of
birth and in the German FN-Breeding Value Index. No other 10-year old stallion
passes on his quality more consistently than Riccione.
That said, Real Love got his beautiful face with the big kind eyes from his sire
as well as a well developed and muscled up body. These attributes alone secure
him to be a special horse. His dam already produced licensed sons as well as a
daughter whom got the States Premium title and she won her Mare Performance
test. These offspring are highly successful in the sport. Real Love was raised
as a stallion prospect and then gelded in order to me somebody a nice dressage
He is an exceptional horse in type and quality. His basic gaits are stunning.
His trot comes with a free shoulder and a super motor. He has a very nice ground
schwung and he swings nicely through his back and is equipped with a naturally
active hind leg in all gaits. His walk is pure with a good rhythm and he could
easily manage to get scores including 9's for it. His canter is very uphill and
he is easy to collect. In addition, his interior is quite remarkable too. He
gets his training inside the covered riding arena as well as outside in the
dressage arena. He is easy to manage at the horse show and was already trail
ridden in the walk. He is a cool young horse and was started in summer of 2008.
Real Love is a true gentleman in the barn as well. He cross ties, knows how to
stand quiet for the solarium, takes his bath, stands for the farrier, goes in
the hot walker and travels easily and well behaved. He is a very uncomplicated
boy and absolutely cuddly. He knows exactly that nobody can pass by his cute
face without touching him. He cuddles up in the handlers arm like a baby and
enjoys the one on one time as often as possible. This is a young star with all
possibilities for the big ring. He draws the attention of the crowd at the horse
show and the judges will remember him.
He is a dream horse - others will envy you. To see him equals to fall in love
