    A little about his career:

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.

    Some videos of him:

    I'm a big fan of the hunter foals that Cabardino is producing.

    I have a 2011 filly out of my Rio Grande/Continue mare that is so nice I am going to hang onto her as a broodmare prospect.

    I had the great pleasure of meeting Ralando II today. What a lovely stallion! He really has a great type and had a super career. The sBs licensed him for breeding today and I am very excited to see his offspring

    Congrats to Angela (and North American breeders!).

    Please take a look at our stallions Zeno has all the things that you are looking for. He is by Quattro and out of a Burrgraaf mare he made the switch from the 1.30m jumpers to the hunter ring this year as an 8 year old and was 7 consecutive times Champion or Reserve in the Green Conformation in CA and the Combined hunters here in AB. He has a super temperament is 17.1hh long straight legs and a great shoulder angle. Www.kvf.ca under stallions

    I am not "selling" him. I even said several times he is probably not the right stallion for OP's mare. Just dont like to see a nice stallion trashed. There are many nice RG horses around. I have no agenda as I don't own one nor have I bred one. However I have always wanted one and admired him. Enough said from my perspective on it. You can think whatever you want.

    What does everyone think about Cabalito?

    You have lots of great suggestions!! I love Cabilto and we want to try him as well! Personally from our own expereince and what we have seen from our own foals Apiro will seems reliable on giving a beautiful neck and "look", improves the movement in elasticiy and impulsion. I would also look at Landtinus, lots of jump.. great temperment, improvment in the movement and pretty.

    LOVE Cabalito. Almost bought a two year old for a client that was drop dead gorgeous. Too green for this client, but quality all the way!

    Have you considered Popeye K? He definitely has substance and size, is a nice mover and a great jumper. Plus, he is a real gentleman.

    We are really pleased with our Popeye K filly.

    Going in a different direction what about Contucci?

    Betsy, I really like what I see and hear about Cabalito, though I've never seen any of his offspring -- or know little about the breeding of the mares that he has bred to that have produced good competition horses.

    Knowing Allegria's breeding, I would not dismiss A Fine Romance (TB). I might be inclined to put a bit more TB blood back into her.

    I've always admired that stallion. The owner ("Fred" on the COTH) forum is one of the most respected.

    If I had a WB cross (by Argosy) and wanted to improve on that -- and no doubt your girly has done VERY well on the line and then took it to the comptetion venue -- that's probably the stallion I'd be looking at.

    Before AFR, I would have been looking at Simbalu, or Bit of Class. Neither of them, nor do I think, AFR, will give you "hot". Just more of what you want out of her.

    Just my 2 cents, for what it's worth. Give Miss Piggy a pat on the head for me.

    Decisions, decisions...that's the hard part, and also the fun part, of serious breeding.

    S.

    Here is a pic of a Cabilito foal. I really like Cabilito and if he will work for your mare I would use him for sure.

    Platinum vom Rappenhof is now standing at our farm in Cushing OK for fresh and on farm AI. Eight-time hunter champion in Canada. He is somewhat of a refining stallion but has long legs and puts on the height. He refines the head, as you can see in this foal photo. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...71895587_n.jpg

    To the OP: Just The Best would be a very nice cross with your mare.
    He's a hunter foundation sire for the KWPN-NA.

    I've run across some beautiful Balou du Rouet offspring, he certainly has had handsome stallions. What do people think about him?

    That is one of my favorite stallions. If I was breeding an amateur dressage horse for myself I would jump through fire to use him. I would not select him for a hunter or jumper. His offspring I have known were wonderful in all ways except not a one could jump their way out of a wet paper bag.
