Inez VW

Inez is a 2005 grey US National Champion Andalusian mare. She was purchased by Valhalla Andalusians in the spring of 2008 from Schuyler Van Woerden. She was immediately put into training with Warren Mather of Choice Show Horses. She was shown at the 2008 US Nationals where she won Reserve National Champion Andalusian Mare, All Ages, Amateur to Handle. She also placed Top Five (placed 3rd) in the National Champion Andalusian Jr Mare class and to her credit, she won the gold medal for movement against some very tough competition. Since returning home from Texas, Inez has become one of our top broodmares giving us 3 National Champion fillies and one gorgeous colt (Tigres) that was sold before he was shown. Inez has also been started under saddle this year and is proving to be a very talented mount with beautiful extensions that she gives very willingly and with great elevation.  Inez gave us a full brother clone to VA Tigres del Norte for 2015 – VA Toledo (sold).  In 2017 Inez had a stunning filly on a repeat breeding to Escamillo.  Born on St. Patrick’s Day, VA Esmeralda has great elevation and suspension.  She is currently on our sales list.  In 2018 Inez gave us a fabulous filly by our stallion Norteno Rey MA – VA Elevado.  With his knees above horizontal, Elevado has the best movement I have ever seen  – comparable only to his grandfather – Escamillo.

VMF Valencia

valencia-winValencia 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 (sold), 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 (sold). Virtually a clone except for the colour. In 2015 Valencia outdid herself again producing VA San Paulo (sold) – another Supreme Halter Champion.  In 2016 Valencia gave us a gorgeous black filly VA Sombre De Valencia (sold).  Vali was shown in 2017 and was National Champion Filly, 1 year and under and Gold Medal Movement Winner. In 2017 Valencia and Amado gave us a second black colt VA Acero Negro (sold) and he was shown at the Canadian Nationals at 4 months and was the National Champion Colt, 1 yr and under and the Gold Medal Movement Winner.  Acero was also show in Las Vegas at the Andalusian World cup and was the Champion ANCCE Colt, 1 year and under.  We again bred Valencia to Amado and in 2018 we had a beautiful grey filly, VA Adaja.  Her movement is outstanding.  She is also on our sales list.

VMF Coqueta Elegante

Coqueta is a 2009 grey Canadian National Champion Andalusian mare. Her sire is Ocioso VIII, a US multinational Champion stallion and one of the top champion producing sires in the US. Her dam is one of our foundation mares, Inez VW. Coqueta is a fantastic mare with great presence and movement. She was shown in 2010 and 2012 at the Canadian National Show. In 2010, Coqueta was incredible and became the 2010 National Champion Filly, 1 year and under and 2 years and under. She was also the Reserve National Champion Andalusian Mare, All Ages, Amateur to Handle. She was then shown again in 2012 were she won the National Champion Jr Mare, 3 and 4 years, Reserve National Champion Best Movement, Champion PRE Mare, National Champion Andalusian Mare, Amateur to Handle, and, saving the best until last, the Canadian National Supreme Halter Champion for 2012.  Coqueta has given us many outstanding foals so far.  VA La Duquesa (sire was Perigrino De Fraille).  Duquesa was the 2014 National Champion Filly, One and Under and Gold Medal Movement winner, National Champion 2 yr old filly and twice National Champion Jr Mare and saving the best until last – twice Supreme Halter Champion (just to outdo her mom).  Coqueta had a stunning filly for 2015 – VA La Reina and she is by our black stallion, VA Manolete’s Hijo Amado.  VA Reina as her name depicts, is “Queen” of all the land.  She was 2016 National Champion yearling filly and in 2017 she was National Champion 2 yr old filly.  We also showed Reina at the Andalusian World Cup and Reina was the Champion 2 yr old Filly.  Reina is currently 16.2HH  – so a very big girl.  In 2016 Coqueta gave us a full sister to Reina – VA La Luna Elegante – the 2016 Reserve Champion Filly, 1 yr and under and Gold Medal Movement Winner.  Coqueta was the 2016 National Champion Produce of Dam with Duquesa, Reina and Luna in the lineup – no beating those 3.  In 2017 Coqueta was left open but in 2018 she had given us a gorgeous filly – VA Nobleza.  Keep your eyes posted on that filly – STUNNING.

She is quite accomplished for such a young mare. In 2015 we welcomed a gorgeous colt from Triana by Mystique’s Padrino. Thank you Triana for your beautiful gift. VA Aragon is an amazing young boy.  In 2017 Triana gave us a lovely filly by Escamillo – VA Sueño De Ayer and in 2018 she had a stunning filly by our stallion Norteño Rey MA – VA Cortesa.

VA La Duquesa

2013 Grey Andalusian Mare

Duquesa is a stunning 2013 grey Andalusian filly. Her dam is our multi-national champion mare, Coqueta Elegante and her sire is Peregrino De Fraille, a gorgeous imported stallion from Spain and a US Regional Champion. Duquesa was born with white around her eyes and by the time she was 3 months old she was snow white. A very striking filly, Duquesa has incredible conformation and movement with a very feminine look. At the 2014 Nationals, Duquesa took everyone by surprise when she entered the arena and was a complete show stopper. She was so breathtaking that the photographer requested a private photo shoot after the show. VA La Duquesa was the 2014 Canadian National Champion filly, 1 year old and the Gold Medal Movement winner. She was the 2015 National Champion 2 year old Filly and the 2016 National Champion Jr Mare and Gold Medal Movement Winner.  To top it all off, she was the 2016 and the 2017 Supreme Halter Champion for the whole show !!! So proud of “Boo” (her barn name as she has been snow white since 3 months old)

VMF Gema Preciosa

Gema is a 2009 grey PRE Andalusian mare. She truly is a gem. Her dam is our multi-national champion Mare, VMF Valencia and her sire was our multi-national champion stallion, Mystique’s Manolete. We had great plans to show Gema at the 2010 Nationals as a yearling for she really was a sight to behold. About 2 weeks before the show, I walked out into the field to bring her in for her halter lesson and there she was unable to move her right rear leg. We took her to Washington State University where it was confirmed that she had broken her hip. Fortunately for Gema, it was broken in such a way that the specialist thought that, with time, she might heal well enough to be a broodmare. She was kept at WSU for another 2 months before she returned home for 6 months of stall rest followed by another 6 months of limited confinement. Today, Gema gallops around the field with all the other girls with such elegance and elevation that even the Revision Vet commented about her beautiful movement.  He was shocked when I told him that she had had a broken hip. Gema has given us several beautiful PRE foals.  In 2014 – VA Mi Poca Fresa (sold), in 2015 -VA La Cristal (sold), in 2016 – VA Pura Vivaz – beautiful grey filly (FOR SALE), 2017 – VA Joya Preciosa – gorgeous black filly (FOR SALE) and in 2018 – another show stopper – grey filly – VA Alegria (FOR SALE),

OA Sienna

OA-Sienna-with-VA-Centurion-2013-2Sienna was the first Andalusian we ever purchased. Bought as a yearling from Sandra Yonge (Olympic Andalusians) in 2000, Sienna was a grey, sweet and quite possibly had the most beautiful movement we had ever seen. She grew into a powerful mare with great bone and substance with extensions to die for. To date she has given us many beautiful foals and all with outstanding conformation and movement.  Please check out Sienna’s offspring link to see all her wonderful foals.

VA Manolete’s Ysabela

Ysabela has been Sold

Ysabela is a 2010 National Champion PRE grey Andalusian mare. Her dam is our multi-national Champion mare VMF Valencia and her sire was our multi-national Champion stallion, Mystique’s Manolete. Ysabela did very well at the 2016 National Show winning the coveted title of National Champion Andalusian Best Movement in a class of 15 horses.  She was also Reserve National Champion Andalusian Sr Mare (a close second to her sister VA Manolete’s Triana who was the NC). In 2011, Ysabela was the National Champion filly, 1 year and under and Reserve National Champion Filly, 2 and under. In both of these classes she was also the Gold Medal Movement winner. This girl is a real mover and an outstanding dressage prospect. In 2017 we had Ysabela in a Juan Manuel Muñoz Diaz clinic and he said that Ysabela had the best walk he had ever seen on an Andalusian….ever!!!!  He was also very impressed with her trot and canter.  Ysabela gave us a beautiful filly in 2014, VA Mi Poca Manzana. (Sold) and an amazing colt in 2017 by Escamillo – VA Ardiendo, who has also been sold.
