“Ricky” is a Holsteiner mare, out of Cathalido by Pauletta (Calido I) and of stamm 776, a dam line with a long record of producing very successful stallions such as Lordanos, Lucky Boy, and Acorado I! Ricky herself has a great deal of presence, and is a phenomenal mover. She has proven to have an excess of bascule through the jump chute!
She has produced three foals to date – all fillies! Her oldest two, sired by Picardo, are 7 and 8 years old, and showing successfully in the 3’3″ pre-greens at the “A” shows. Her youngest, Gloria June, turns 3 this year and has a particularly gorgeous type – almost 17hh already and all curves. She is also an incredible mover with a great deal of elasticity, suspension, and presence! She will be offered for sale after she is started later in the year.
Her 2017 breeding will have similar goals – a hunter – but with a decidedly different approach. To add blood and potentially balance her dominant breeding, she will be bred to Goldmaker, a cremello RPSI Thoroughbred stallion.
