His sire is Mystique’s Padrino. This is the first foal from Triana and what a show stopper! His conformation, movement and temperament are second to none.

(SOLD) Agosto is a 2007 Multi-National Champion Black PRE stallion. His sire was our foundation stallion, Mystique’s Manolete and his dam was our foundation mare OA Sienna. This combination produced a beautiful stallion with exceptional movement. Agosto won the 2008 Canadian National Champion Colt, 2 years and Under as a yearling. He was then shown under saddle as a 3 year old in 2010 where he won 5 national titles in dressage and English pleasure both in open and Junior Horse. Just prior to Agosto’s 4th birthday he performed at the Fiesta where he did a spectacular exhibition freestyle displaying extensions that would take your breath away. Agosto was sold in 2011 to Wendy Feller where he stands at stud near Portland, Oregon. Agosto is the sire of our beautiful black ¾ Andalusian filly, VA Sofia. Sofia was the 2013 Supreme Halter Champion, part-bred.
(SOLD) Mystique’s Manolete is an outstanding 2003 Grey PRE stallion. His beauty, strength, conformation, and his superbly elevated movement, are what make him the superstar that he is. Manolete was very comfortable in the show arena. Starting as early as a yearling, Manolete was awarded the grand slam in the halter world. He won Canadian National Champion Colt, 2 and under, NC Jr Stallion and NC Sr Stallion twice as well as numerous gold medals for movement. He also went on to win over a dozen National titles in performance over the 3 National shows he went to while under saddle. NC English Pleasure, NC Dressage Suitability, NC Show Hack, NC Dressage Hack just to name a few. He was also shown at open shows in dressage by both Olympic rider Ms. Leslie Reid and Mr. Sven Smienk scoring in the 70’s up to 3rd Level.
Manolete’s sire, Sandokan, is a four-time winner at the IALHA nationals in Texas including two National Champion and two Reserve National Champion Halter titles. His dam, Mystique’s Leyenda, is also a multi-title winner, including Grand Champion Filly 2000 IALHA Region 2, Top Five Filly at the 2000 IALHA US Nationals and Grand Champion Senior Mare and Gold Medal Movement at the IALHA PAAHL Canadian Show in 2005. In addition, Manolete’s grand-dam Linda was the first horse ever to win Grand Champion Filly as a yearling at the 1992 IALHA US Nationals as well as 1997 Reserve Champion Mare at the IALHA US Nationals.
It was with great sadness that we sold Manolete to Mr Bob Price of Chicago in 2010 but it was the right thing to do as Manolete has an opportunity to reach his potential in the dressage world that he wasn’t able to do here in the Kootenays.
Manolete has produced some very special offspring for us to help carry on his legacy.
