Rango GS (Rubinero/Sandro Hit/Drossan)
Rango is a stunning black Oldenburg colt with 4 white socks, a star, and a stripe. He was born July 8, 2019. He has excellent conformation- long, straight legs, a strong topline with a great hip, nicely shaped neck, and an adorable head.
He is outgoing, friendly, and bold. He loves people, is very willing to learn, and is a joy to have around. He has a gentle nature and is kind & sweet. He leads, loads on the trailer, has traveled off the farm overnight, has had his feet trimmed, gets touched/brushed all over, has had baths, and will continue to be handled consistently and correctly.
Rango has 3 very correct and lovely gaits. His walk is relaxed and swinging through his body, with nice over stride and great rhythm. His trot is lofty and light, with nice straight movement, great freedom of shoulder, and a nice round knee. The canter is uphill and powerful, with excellent ability to sit, and good reach with the hind leg. He is naturally balanced and has wonderful cadence, and has beautifully clean, uphill flying changes already! He is a happy-go-lucky boy that captures your attention and mesmerizes with his gorgeous good looks and lovely movement.
Rango is by the proven FEI Dressage stallion, Rubinero (Rubinstein/Ex Libris/Furioso). Born and raised in Germany, Rubinero finished 2nd in the Dressage phase of his 70-Day Stallion Test with a score of 140+ points, and placed 3rd overall. His character and rideability earned him perfect 10's. Rubinero qualified for the Bundeschampionat, was Reserve Champion at Rastede, and quickly moved up to the Advanced levels. He was imported to the US in 2013 and continued to compete through Intermediare I with his amateur owner. He was the Region 3 Champion at Intermediare and Reserve Champion at Pris St. George. In 2018, Rubinero's son Robinvale (ds. Wittinger) represented Switzerland at the World Equestrian Games. Rubinero is known for producing beautiful, talented, and trainable offspring that excel in both the Dressage & Hunter/Jumper rings.
Rango's dam, Samba (Sandro Hit/Drossan/Literat), is an interesting mix of top Oldenburg and Holsteiner blood, and comes from the famous Holsteiner mareline Spange. Samba was bred in the Netherlands and completed & passed her IBOP as a 4 year old. She was awarded the STER predicate and competed through M level Dressage before we imported her in 2010. Samba is an incredible mare with a huge work ethic, 3 excellent gaits, and a wonderful mind. She is truly a queen. She is beautiful, elegant, and incredibly intelligent, and she passes these wonderful traits on to her foals. She has huge talent for FEI work, especially the passage/piaffe, and her medium & extended gaits consistently scored 9's. She is the epitome of the perfect mare.
Rango GS has the bloodlines, good looks, and excellent gaits to be an absolute superstar. He is looking for his perfect partner that wants to develop a top notch colt for the future.
