Rinaldo is a 2007 andalusian stallion, IALHA reg. # 10943(s). He also has his lifetime registration with the USEF and USHJA (reg. #4975949), and is microchipped. This horse is extremely healthy, solid, and 100% sound. His DNA is EeAa. This stallion is the embodiment of his amazing bloodlines. Rinaldo's sire, Diego MC, is three quarters Military blood and is from a long line of champions, all well known for their functionality and elastic movements.
Rinaldo's dam, Costosa, is an own daughter of the Olympic dressage Andalusian Aureolo VII of Spain. Costosa has an extensive and successful show career of her own. Details of both parents of Rinaldo can be seen at www.tintagelandalusians.com (courtesy of Sarah Hollis).
Rinaldo stands 15.1 hands, and is superbly balanced. His conformation is exceptional. His hindquarters are massive, with large, strong hocks and substantial canon bones. Rinaldo naturally engages his hindquarters, due to the ideal angles in his hips and shoulders. He is broad and square, with straight legs at each corner. My farrier is always pointing out to his apprentices how ideally-shaped Rinaldo's feet are. Always ready to go, Rinaldo is an amazing combination of strength, beauty, stamina, and balance.
Rinaldo is a highly confident, athletic and agile horse, but easily ridden by a confident person. He has been trained in the reining maneuvers (sliding stop, spins, rollbacks, lead changes) and can perform them all correctly on a loose rein. Currently in training for dressage, Rinaldo is proving his remarkable bloodlines, progressing quickly through the levels. Rinaldo has begun jumping training, and thoroughly enjoys it, showing scope and commitment. He has also been introduced to a mechanical cow, and is very interested and shows promise of becoming a real cow horse. Rinaldo and his get are going to revolutionize the performance industry, and his offspring will be the ones to beat. His canter is nothing short of magical, and every single person who has had the privilege of riding this amazing horse has fallen in absolute love with him after the very first ride.
Rinaldo is a highly intelligent and interested horse who is very socially active. He is grateful for his stall toys, and enjoys the company of his equine neighbors. He has become the darling of Meredith Manor, and many of the students have enjoyed working with him and some have had the privilege of riding him. The commonality among everyone who has worked with Rinaldo is the fact that they all simply fall in love with him. He is just that special and rare.
