"PATCHWORK BENEATH THE REALMS"
From the moment this boy hit the ground, we just knew he was special. He boasts above average paces, (particularly his trot) a long, athletic back and a pretty, petite head. His conformation is very correct also with fine, straight legs and good length of rein. Classic to his dam, Moondance Rhapsody, he is sensitive and responsive (but not neurotic).
Bentley can lead, pick up feet, has been stabled, rugged. He has been wormed, trimmed, DNA'd and has had AWHA papers issued.
Bentley is by Callaho's Benicio (IFS) who was the 2011 6yr old German Bundeschampion under the guidance of Anna Fiebelkorn. Six months later he aced his Stallion Performance Test at Schliekau with perfect 10’s for walk, trot and canter. His final score for the dressage section, 9.88, superseded even that of his father and was the highest score ever achieved in the history of the stallion performance test. Tellingly, with his top-of-class jumping score of 8.43, this competence is also reliably transmitted to his progeny. Now having been meticulously trained to Grand Prix level by Jessica Andersson, this one-in-a-million stallion with his dream paces, faultless rideability and character has captivated the European dressage breeding community.
Bentley is out of Moondance Rhapsody, a kind, well moving mare by Royal Hit (IMP / DEC). She has stamped both of her colts with incredible movement, sensitive and responsive temperaments and fantastic conformation. Both are FEI quality. We would go as far as to say that she is our top broodmare.
