There is so much fun to be had with this charismatic 4-year old gelding and at 15.3 1/2 hands with a good size barrel he will fit a range of riders. Faccini is easy to train and fun to ride with a confident attitude that takes new environments and training questions in stride. He has three clear, easily developable gaits, and is well-balanced and very comfortable to sit. Faccini has attended one schooling show early this summer and handled the busy warm-up arena well. We anticipate that next season he will comfortably be showing Training & First level.
Sire Flamenco YM (Diamante Negro-Dadivoso IX) is a PRE stallion that highlights the modern type and elastic gaits of the contemporary Spanish horse. He is showing well at Prix St. Georges with his AA rider and was Reserve Champion for the USDF All-Breeds Awards this season. He shows good talent for the Grand Prix work and we’re very excited for the 2023 show season. Flamenco is one of the very few PRE stallions that is also approved with a warmblood registry (Oldenburg Verband).
Faccini’s Oldenburg dam was herself an event competitor, but her sire Pandorra competed to Grand Prix in dressage and goes back to the great KWPN stallion Ferro. Faccini was the first foal for both his sire and dam.
AA/Jr riders will find Faccini an ideal prospect for them to develop up the levels over the coming years. He’s lived his entire life here at Hilltop Farm so we know him very well. Faccini is on the market through no fault of his own but only due to some complicating life events for his owner.
