SWEDISH NATIONAL 2016 - GARUDA!

Garuda (Galba x Gotlandia/Pesal) did once again enter the ring like the power house she is and ended up as the class winner with 92,33 points (95 points from one judge)!

She also won the prize for the highest score of the show, Best Import and was awarded Swedish National Silver Champion Mare!

Her constant companion in the showring, Carolina Schwieler, did, as always, a fantastic job!

As if this was not enough she also went on to be SWEDISH NATIONAL LIBERTY CHAMPION!!

This time she charmed the judge to the tunes of Dr. Bombay´s "SOS (a tiger took my family)". Like the mount of the God Vishnu, her namesake, she floated around the arena and left no one untouched.
In the Liberty she was shown by Louise Wale.

She is bred by Michalów Stud, Poland.

SCANDINAVIAN OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS 2016 - INTERNATIONAL B-SHOW, SWEDEN!

GARUDA (Galba - Gotlandia/Pesal) once again entered a class of mares of absolute highest international quality. The biggest class of the show contained 8 beautiful individuals and with 90,67 points (one 20 for movements) Garuda was placed third. The winner and second placed horses had the same score of 91,17.

Garuda entered the ring like a power house and was, as always, shown perfectly by Carolina Schwieler.

But Garuda wasn´t satisfied. A couple of hours later she enters the indoor arena to the tune of "The champagne gallop" by Hans Christian Lumbye (1810-1874) in the Liberty class. The result? SCANDINAVIAN OPEN LIBERTY CHAMPION!! With 96,67 points (scored 19 or higher on everything from all judges) she won by one point to the second horse who also performed beautifully.

In the Liberty Garuda was shown by Louise Wale.

Breeder of Garuda is Michalów Stud, Poland.

SA BONIK (ZT Shakfantazy x Bola/Gazal Al Shaqab), born May 1st, has got his own page here.
We think Bonik is destined to be something special, and he is for sale.

HAPPY NEWS!!

Both SA EUNINA (Ekstern x Eunora/Gazal Al Shaqab) and SA GARESSA (Empire x Garuda/Galba) have, at the age of 2 (24 months), been X-rayed in both hind knees and no cysts or any other abnormality was found. They both looked perfect!

Needless to say they both also travelled and behaved like future Queens.

Garessa is available for the discriminating buyer. She is imported to Sweden from State Stud Michalów, Poland, in utero and is of very high quality....
Show, breeding, under saddle in your choise of dicipline (at the racetrack?), in front of a cart - it's up to you!
She has a wonderful temperament and is very easy to handle. She is a dreamgirl!
