Another breeding donated to help Eddo - Holsteiner GP stallion, Ralando II
Angela Pritchard has generously donated a breeding to her new stallion, Ralando II. He is registered with the German Holsteiner Verband. His breeding is Ramiro-Calando-Romino, stamm 741. Now that he has been retired from competition, they are in the process of obtaining approvals for him. Only cost to winning bidder would be collection and shipping, and that would be at cost through Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital. Collection is $170 and shipping at cost. Collecting Monday - Friday (and Saturday with sufficient advance notice).
Ralando II's show record is impressive as he has gotten good ribbons from the Grand Prix Jumpers to the Adult Amateur Hunters. He was most successful in the AA rated hunters - Regular Working and Amateur Owner, with wins at big shows. The best thing about him is his fantastic personality. He is very sweet and just a pleasure to be around.
Ralando II competed in Germany as a young horse up to M-Level (1.3m). He was imported by Eduardo Braun as a seven year old and competed up to the Grand Prix level on the east and west coasts before becoming a schoolmaster for an adult amateur. In 2010, a change of ownership meant a change of discipline as Ralando II transitioned to the hunter world with amateur rider (now turned professional), Arly Golombek. The pair amassed top placings and championships as both a Regular Working and A/O Hunter at elite A-Circuit shows including WEF, Kentucky Spring & Summer shows, the Kentucky National, Capital Challenge, Pennsylvania National and the National Horse Show. Before retiring from competition, Ralando II was competing & winning in the Adult Amateur divisions with students of Arly’s.
Below are recent conformation/headshot photos, and a couple of older competition photos (the jumping one is from when he was 9 & he's 18 now). We should soon have more recent hunter competition photos.
And here are a few videos...
Bidding here or by PM. Bidding closes at midnight on All-Hallow's Eve (Halloween night, Oct 31).
Thank you, Angela, for your generous donation of a breeding to this lovely boy.
