Amadeo performs at the IALHA Nationals with Marta Renilla

Just a few days after arriving from the long journey from Spain, Marta Renilla and Amadeo III gave a wonderful exhibition at the IALHA Nationals on Saturday, October 18.  Amadeo was stunning in the beautiful red and yellow attire that honor his Spanish heritage.  While he is just beginning his training with Marta for the FEI levels of dressage, it was a great glimpse of what this young stallion has to offer.  View the video here:  http://youtu.be/7iA2iXMn9eQ?list=UUGidufsm9FFMvuKluDYDM6Q

Introducing Amadeo III

Rancho Godinez is proud to present Amadeo III as our primary breeding stallion.  Amadeo was hand selected by USDF Gold Medalist Marta Renilla for his excellent conformation and powerful athletic ability.  After arriving in the US from Spain on October 7 of 2014, he is preparing to compete at FEI levels very soon.  His sire Impaciente II was the 2004 SICAB Champion Stallion showing expressive movement that he has passed along to many of his offspring.  We are offering a special introductory rate for his first year breeding to approved mares.  ANCCE revised, Amadeo brings a quality of PRE that is not often readily available in the US.  Amadeo has a perfect combination of movement, conformation, attitude, and strength.  Watch for him in the dressage arenas this year and plan your breeding soon as availablity will become limited with his show ring success.

October is a busy month here at Rancho Godinez!  First, there is a BIG surprise on the way.  We will be announcing as soon as we have a specific date and more information, but it will probably be October (although it could happen by the end of the month).  October 3 is the Friesian Keuring in Denton Texas.  We will be taking Jantiene Kula for her inspection.  IALHA Nationals is in Fort Worth October 13-18.  RG Travieso will be participating in the 3 year old futurity classes.  SK Sonata and Magico’s Masterpiece will also be competing this year.  Make sure to come visit us at the shows!
