Inspection comments: A large, fully mature, noble, blooded type Russian Trakehner stallion. Masculine with much stallion expression and elegance. Excellent neck set with a smooth and harmonious top line, and he has good pelvic length and angles. The horse possesses an excellent saddle position. Dry, very long legs with flat knees, but both forelegs show lateral rotation and hooves could be somewha larger. Very good at all gaits, showing uphill movement with impulsion, suspension, elevation of front and excellent use of hocks and knees. All gaits are active and show athletic brilliance. He is a powerful and scopey jumper. Very well mannered and shows good character.The stallion has 25% Arabian blood in his pedigree and should cross well with Trakehner mares that have a strong and correct foundation but need refinement in movement.
