To be inspected for breeding license with SASHF at suitable age.


The second of our Saddler x Warmblood program foals. 
Glitter n Gold is a huge palomino colt, is very correct in conformation and will be a big tall horse.  He already shows an enormous canter and has a lovely inquisitive temperament.  He is a confident and uncomplicated youngster and learns new things easily.

Being out of a saddler mare Glitter is an expressive powerful mover with off the floor paces and elevated carriage. He has a very active and strong "engine" which means he will be fantastic at both dressage and show-jumping.

In addition to his powerful paces, Glitter carries the creme gene, thus providing breeders with the opportunity that his progeny has 50% chance of being a single dilute (eg. palomino & buckskin).

SHF Glitter n Golds sire Shaunakee competing under Sue van der MerweSHF Glitter n Golds sire Shaunakee competing under Sue van der MerweGlitter n Gold is by the 17.3hh golden palomino warmblood stallion Shaunakee.
Shaunakee is by Agrando Winterday (by Agrando Winterstar out of Drossel Melody who is by Attache out of a Graveur mare) out of Lady Whisper (by Bezard out of Aurelio by Preamble 11). 

Shaunakees dam competed in open eventing and B grade showjumping under Steven Rufus. His sire competed to open eventing also under Steven.
Shaunakee himself competed in the 1.20m classes under Sue van der Merwe and showed plenty of scope and technique.  He has powerful movement and is well put together.  His foals are all tall and very striking.  
His most outstanding quality is his incredible temperament.

Through Agrando Winterday, Glitter carries the valuable blood of WINTERSTAR  who was the top priced colt on the Elite Verden Sale, and he was subsequently performance tested and licensed before being imported to South Africa. He is half brother to the No 1 World ranked Show jumper 2004, Olympic Gold medalist and Hanoverian Champion stallion For Pleasure – both being out of the mare Gigantin, he stems from the prolifically accomplished dressage "W" line and is a half brother (same dam) as FOR PLEASURE- ranked as the world's No. 1 in show jumping by WBFSH in 2003/4. Winterstar has produced Int. A Grade show jumpers and top level dressage horses, and is a successful sire of Broodmares. He also passes on good, kind temperaments to his offspring

Glitter N Gold at 3 Months of AgeGlitter N Gold at 3 Months of AgeGlitter N Gold will be retained as a future stud stallion and will also be presented for licensing with SASHF as soon as he is old enough. Our hopes for him is a blooming dressage and jumping career.
