MINISTRO V is an APTO approved stallion recently imported from Spain where he was in training at an Olympian's stable. MINISTRO brings some of the best and most coveted Yeguata Militar, Escalera, and Guardiola bloodlines to the U.S. He has LEBRIJANO III, AGENTE, and MALUSO in his bloodlines, and his sire is the well known BREZO V, father of two Absolute Champions of Spain, as well as many Calificado offspring. MINISTRO's dam, MINISTRA-SENI, from the famous Senillosa stud, won fifth with 79.5 points in her only National show. MINISTRO V has natural dressage talent that is required for the upper levels of dressage, and to compete against the Warmbloods. Add to this his motivation to please his rider, his incredible focus for such a young stallion, and smooth, rideable gaits, and you have a great dressage and riding horse. On the ground, he is a lovable, affectionate, and personable stallion who can even be handled by my 8 year old daughter. With his beautiful, modern conformation, and a thick, gorgeous mane and tail, MINISTRO V is a definite head turner. This is MINISTRO V's introductory year at stud, and as such, he has an introductory stud fee which is an incredible bargain for a horse of this quality, with these bloodlines. His 2012 stud fee is $1,000.00 for purebreds and $800.00 for all others.
