Orfeo is our senior stallion, originally bred at Rancho La Jarilla by Gaston Santos in Mexico. He was a bullfighting horse for Gaston Santos, Jr., before he was imported to the USA. He is an amazing stallion, gentle and kind for his rider but full of brio and charisma for the performance arena. His competitive career started later in his life, but he has been successful in the dressage arena, debuting at 4th level at the young age of 23! He loves to work, to teach students, and to perform. While he is sensitive and bold, he adapts to his rider, happy to help rehabilitate riders back into riding or teaching more upper level students. While we are trying to talk him into slowing down for his own sake, he still wants to keep doing FEI level work. His foals are exceptional with wonderful temperaments, correct conformation, and beautiful movement, and what's more, most have been chestnut based! We have two of his crossbred foals and one purebred foal on our farm. If he gives us a purebred colt, we will be keeping him for sure to replace (if possible) his sire. He is still standing at stud on a limited basis and is available for limited lessons.
