An ideal young stallion to produce modern type dressage horses, eventers and showjumpers.

Vincent's sire "ELCARO" is one of the most successful Grand Prix horses in the Netherlands with a very high breeding index of over 160 for dressage. His elastic trot and fantastic temperament helped him win the National Stallion Competition final in 1990/91 where he scored 9's for his temperament and stable manners and an impressive 8.5 for his trot.

Vicent's damsire "SAMBER" needs no introduction being not only a Grade A Showjumper but also a Grand Prix dressage horse. Vincent has inherited his father's expressive head, power and agility in his paces and his fantastic temperament.

Vincent has already been successful in the show ring during 2005 including:- winning the 3 year old potential sportshorse class at the S.H.G.B. Northwest Spring Show and Reserve Champion overall. 2nd place at the Potential Competition Horse Show at Osbaldeston for 3 year old colts and geldings.

During 2006 he was second at the 4 year old ridden sports horse class at the SH GB spring show and he was also Champion Sportshorse at the CHAPS Championship Show.

His first crop of foals born in 2006 have inherited his superb athleticism and quality as displayed by his daughter Vanilla. She was awarded a first premium with an overall score of 8.4 at the BEF futurity scheme qualifiers.

His second crop of foals born in 2007 have exceeded all expectations with the quality and the high percent of coloured foals (78%). Many breeders have returned their mares in 2007 being delighted with the type of foals he has produced. His offspring are now been recognised in the show ring as several of his youngsters have been placed 1st and Champions in foal and coloured classes.
