Alano is a superlative example of the classic Spanish horse with all the desired traits of movement, conformation, temperament and a champion pedigree. He has an electrifying presence, powerful movement, fluid uphill transitions, natural collection, incredible agility, and the Andalusian's safe and willing temperament. Showing Second Level dressage in 2011, Alano placed First in every class, won 2 High Score ribbons, and was First in Ontario at Second Level, impressing both judges and spectators with the quality of his gaits, his consistency, and his calm and quiet nature.
For centuries the Andalusian has been the stallion of choice as an improvement sire, and Alano has consistently and indelibly stamped his offspring with his movement, balance and mind. His babies are all incredibly light in front, showing lovely canter lead changes and engagement of the hindquarters, excellent conformation and size. For a foal that is talented enough for the professional yet with the famously safe temperament of the Andalusian, consider Alano as the stallion for your mare in 2013.
