View the video footage of Rapunzel R...

Rapunzel R is an absolutely drop-dead amazing broodmare. She was lightly broken-in and ridden as a 3yo. She is the most exquisite mare and would be very comfortable at any agricultural Royal Show in the champion hack class. However, Rapunzel R shows her ace card once she moves. Walk is regular, deliberate and four-beat with great overtrack, the trot just explodes around the arena and will make even the cynics draw breath. Huge gravity defying power, ballerina elegance and artistic poise. Balance that is just never-ending and a metronome type rhythm that leaves everybody mesmerised. Serious paces!†

Ahh yes, and then comes her breeding. Rapunzel R is by the Australian Grand Prix Dressage Champion 2008/2009 and champion again 2010/2011, Regardez Moi. On the damís side Rapunzel R is out of Melissa R who is by the Grand Prix stallion Richmeed Medallion. Richmeed Medallion in turn is by the Dutch legend May Sherif who sired Andiamo for Germany and Matador for Finland, both of whom won World Cup freestyle finals. This feat has never been repeated. Right down the bottom is Salute who is the sire of Victory Salute, ninth in the world at the recent World Equestrian Games.†

Finally, Rapunzel is in foal to the licensed young Sir Donnerhall stallion Starnberg, due 26/10/11.
