Shiraz is a Hilltop-homebred mare that we are proud to present. Her compact frame, easy balance, and very good rideability make her fun to train. Her time undersaddle is limited, but she is very sensible, nicely forward, and we can easily see her showing later this summer.
Shiraz’s pedigree is filled with FEI horses. Her sire Sternlicht is a 3x winner of the US Dressage Finals, most recently capturing the Prix St. Georges Championship in 2019. Sternlicht is continuing his climb up the levels and has just made his Intermediate II debut and is on the USEF Development List. His offspring are winning their early competitions and receiving excellent reports from trainers. Sternlicht’s sire, Soliman de Hus has competed to Grand Prix and represents two of the most prominent dressage lines in the past twenty years – Sandro Hit and Donnerhall.
Shiraz’s dam was herself a special FEI mare who competed at the US Intermediate Championships and was successful to Grand Prix. She is by Negro – one of the top ranked sires of Grand Prix horses in the world, including the Olympic and World Champion Valegro. Uforia has proven an exceptional producer for us with multiple Devon winners and a licensed stallion already to her record.
This feminine mare is already approved into the Main Studbook and Premium Eligible for the American Hanoverian Society. She’s not been undersaddle for too long so we’d recommend her at this stage for a professional or tactful AA/YR with young horse experience. She is very willing and progressing quickly in her training. Complete set of x-rays available. Price will increase with further training.
