A masterpiece... Da Vinci is an exquisitely made RPSI gelding born by our imported 17.1 hand Rheinland Pfalz-Saar stallion Der Graf (Donnerhall x Pik Koenig), and out of our lovely Premium branded RPSI mare, Lumina, by Impression (Trak.).
Da Vinci has the swingy, elastic movement, uphill conformation and beautiful type we've come to expect from this cross. Plus he's a striking red bay with a big teardrop star and four white socks. This young gelding is absolutely beautiful and will be a real eye-catcher at the shows with his combination of good looks and big movement - he's already a winner in hand, USDF Breeders Series.
Absolutely a top class show prospect, Da Vinci was Reserve Champion young horse at his first USDF Breeders Series in-hand show, and qualified for the regional championships.
Da Vinci is started lightly under saddle and has a super mind, is perfect at the shows for braiding, grooming, in-hand presentation on the triangle, and trailering. This is a quality young horse with a really super temperament who will make a superb show horse.
Da Vinci is maturing into a top three-year-old. He stands 16.2 and 1/2 hands, with good bone and substance, and an innate elegance and quality that is unmistakeable. Most important, his movement continues to impress, with a really special, uphill canter, and a lovely, free, elastic trot. His walk is top notch too -- this gelding has the basic qualities to be an exceptional dressage horse or a potential hunter/jumper star.
