Valencia Foals

To date, Valencia has given us 6 beautiful foal of which 4 have become National Champions.

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),

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.

va Azucena

azu-web Azucena is a 2011 National Champion PRE grey Andalusian mare. Her dam is our multi-national champion VMF Valencia and her sire is Mystique’s Padrino. Azucena was only shown as a two year old in 2013 but had an amazing show. She was the Reserve National Champion Filly, 2 year olds and Gold Medal Movement winner and also the Reserve National Champion Best Movement winner. Beaten only by her mother in the movement class, together they out moved and out shone the other ten horses in the class.

We lost Azucena way too young, due to a pasture injury. RIP VA Azucena. We will always think of you and miss you with all of our hearts. You were a champion in halter and movement but to us you were a kind and gentle horse that did everything you could to make us happy. But for now, we are sad. On May 20th, 2014 you slipped and fell and fractured your leg and with so much heart you stood and waited for us to help you in your plight, not sure what would happen next. We cried, we hugged, we said our goodbyes. I hope that now you are racing like the wind, like I new you could, like I new you would. Happy trails my sweet girl.
