By Hercules XX out of Generosa XCIV
Abbie is our foundation purebred Spanish mare and very much part of the family. She is almost pure Escalera, which is one of the oldest and most prestigous PRE bloodlines, famed for breeding bay horses of uniformity and functionality, with a little less elevation but more extension than the Cartujanos or Carthusian lines; producing therefore superb dressage horses.
She is very true-to-type with perfect conformation and a defining example of a purebred Spanish Andalusian horse. She couples the baroque distinctively compact and strongly built frame with extravagant movement. She has a very active hind leg and great range of movement, which she passes onto her foals.
Her 2015 foal is our PRE colt, illixa Astraeus. She is currently due to foal in mid 2017 to one of the most successful PRE stallions in the UK, International Dressage and Small Tour stallion, Deseado CCV, ridden and competed by Alice Hurley with winning results at GB PRE, SICAB and the European Masters Du Cheval Iberique Championships.
