Assante is a colt like none we have seen before! He is a son of the 2008 stallion Armando El Aryes, imported two years ago from Austria and now standing at Shada, Inc. The son of Aryes El Ludjin out of the exquisite dam Anais El Bri, Armando has shown to 2011 Regional Champion and 2011 Arabian World Cup Reserve Champion. View his gallery of pictures at Shada.Arabians.com/thestallions/armando-el-aryes. We have also included this link to view his World Cup presentation on YouTube. As you will see, he is an amazing stallion with extreme type, breathtaking presence and very correct conformation. He also has the color, mane and tail to give the fantasy look that so many horse lovers are searching for.
Assante's dam is the purebred Friesian mare Tessa Whitney J. Not only did Tessa make the ster predicate at here three year keuring, she was Grand Champion of all 30 mares exhibited in her class. She is the daughter of the legendary Anton 343 Sport, imported from Holland and known for his trademark masses of mane, tail and feathering as well as his superb movement. Anton is a highly accomplished dressage horse as well as having one of the highest ster daughter percentages and two approved sons (Teade392 and Tonjes459) and one approved grandson (Sipke450). Tessa boasts a pedigree with every mare and stallion having ster or higher predicates - many of them preferent and model. She is a mare of very correct confirmation and great beauty, possessing her father's masses of hair and spectacular movement. She truly floats over the ground with grace and power.
Assante is a star in the making. His color is grey and he already has the super thick mane and tail starting that will make him a breathtaking sight to behold as he grows and matures. He is a tall colt, standing higher than both of the purebred Friesian fillies we raised this year. His conformation is correct, his bone of substance, his head refined, expression pleasant, personality willing and friendly and his movement forward, large and powerful. He truly has the Arabian poise blended with the Friesian lift and power! He is Sweepstakes Nominated as well as being in both the U.S. and Canadian Halter Futurities. There is great potential for Assante to show and win for the person ready to take him there! Just give this super sweetheart a chance to change your horse showing career.
