We are happy to offer this beautiful & unique Iberian Sporthorse mare for sale. Sombra (meaning Shadow in Portuguese) is very people- oriented, she is the first to greet visitors and follows us like a loving puppy. Born May 30, 2015, she is nearly a clone in appearance and temperament to her 15.3hh Baroque big sister, Sonhadora RHFI (click to visit page). Sombra possesses magnificent uphill movement & the agility of her bull fighting Iberian heritage, is level headed, playful, inquisitive, and turns heads with her rare wavy coat. She leads, & single ties for her meals and grooming. Her sire is imported 16.1hh mahogony bay APSL Lusitano Stallion, Tejo II. Trained to Haute Ecole, Tejo II passes his gaits' balanced slow cadence, substance, and easy going, gentle temperament to his offspring. He is an ambassador for the Iberian horse in Classical riding exhibitions throughout the US. Sombra's dam, Col's Whiteface (click for video) is a kind, hardy, sensitive athlete who is eager to please. This American Bashkir Curly mare exemplifies the barefoot hardiness, bone, and comfortable trot that you can sit for hours characterized by this breed. She is schooled in: Dressage, La Garrocha, over natural fences on the trail, and has enjoyed working cattle.
Sombra is a big personality, hardy, and will truly turn heads with her elegant movement and her luxurious coat in any number of disciplines- dressage, eventing, working equitation, penning & sorting, ranch work, competitive trail.....
