Arlington is a 16.3 hand chestnut Trakehner stallion. Born in 1988, he passed his 100 day testing in Neumuenster, Germany. He has been trained to Intermediate I and has competed internationally at this level in Europe, consistently scoring in the mid to upper 60’s. Prior to his dressage career, Arlington had many placings in show jumping competitions in Europe. Arlington is the son of Ravel, a Grand Prix dressage stallion with many wins to his credit. His grandsire is Mahogani, who sired Peron, the highest placed American dressage horse at the 1996 Olympics. His sire’s pedigree also includes the foundation stallions Donauwind and Pregel, both descendents of the great jumping stallion Abdullah. He is approved by the American and German Trakehner Verbands.
Arlington is a master of the pirouette and can give any rider a real feel for collection. Still sound and showable, he recently took his amateur rider through her first third level test. A perfect gentleman, he won both classes with scores of 64%. He also produces lovely babies with his gentle temperament. His son Tropical Reign is currently doing very well on the southern California breed show circuit. He is very fertile, easy to handle in the breeding shed, and would be a great addition to any Trakehner breeding program. Plus, he can still teach you upper level movements and take you down the centerline with style!
