Valencia is a 2005 PRE grey Andalusian mare. To date, she is the only filly OA Sienna has ever had. Her sire is Quimerico KF formerly owned by Paul Dufresne of Training for Courage. Valencia completely outdid herself in 2013, which coincidentally was the first time she had ever stepped into a show arena. Not only was she pronounced the Canadian National Champion Senior Mare but she can also boast winning the Canadian National Champion Best Movement class as well. Her daughter, VA Azucena was Reserve Champion in the Best Movement class reinforcing the fact that this is a great line of movers and shakers. Her 3 month old colt that was at her side, VA Alejo, was pronounced the Canadian National Supreme Halter Champion for the whole show. Great job Valencia! In 2013 we bred Valencia back to Alejo’s sire (our black stallion Amado) and got a gorgeous grey colt with huge movement, VA Titanio. Virtually a clone except for the colour. Valencia has done outdone herself again in 2015 and has given us on of the best colts we have bred to date. VA San Paulo was born on April 1st, 2015, is huge with conformation and movement beyond belief. He is PRE, Bay and will be BIG. He will be sold to a dressage home only.
