Royal Tourmalet SPF is one of only two licensed sons from the late, five-time consecutive USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year, Royal Prince. If you are looking to add temperament, rideability and correct gaits to your program, Royal Tourmalet SPF (“Artie”) is a stallion to seriously consider. Artie is a perfect example of balanced conformation and power needed in Sport Horse Breeding; and, when you add in his phenomenal temperament, you will produce performance horses suited for both professionals and amateurs. Royal Tourmalet SPF’s fluid walk, expressive trot, and enormous uphill canter are a pleasure to ride; and, he is able to extend and collect with ease.
Royal Tourmalet is a stunning stallion, showing great presence and expression with a beautiful soft eye. He sports a brilliant mahogany bay coat with a bronze metallic sheen; and has four white socks and a blaze. Artie is producing lovely leggy foals with uphill builds, strong toplines, powerful hind ends, pure gaits and wonderful temperaments. His first foal, Royal Madeleine CG also inherited his "chrome".
Artie is naturally balanced, both mentally and physically, and has already experienced much success in the competition arena. In 2015, he was awarded the much-coveted Dr. Robert Miller Memorial Perpetual Trophy as the Highest Scoring American Bred Stallion at the prestigious Dressage at Devon Breed Show. Royal Tourmalet SPF has also earned many National, Zone, Regional and Local Year-End Awards; and, was named Top Foal at his 2011 AHS Inspection.
Judges commented frequently on “the good use of his topline with elasticity and swing” in the walk; his “good energy, suspension, cadence and ground cover” in the trot; his “modern type and attractive uphill build”; his “good shoulder and saddle position”; his “strong loin and good bone”; and his “well set neck and well angled hind leg”. Perhaps, though, a highlight was the General Impression score and comment from the incomparable Lisolette Fore. Judge Fore awarded Artie with 8.3 and commented “Good character. Very calm, but still with good energy”. That completely sums up this wonderful stallion. When winning the Dr. Robert Miller Memorial Perpetual Trophy in 2015, top Breed Show Judge, Kristi Wysocki’s General Impression comment says it all, “Good Breeding Type”.
Royal Tourmalet's career highlights include: 2016 GAIG/USDF Breeders Championship Series Grand Champion Stallion - East Coast Final; 2015 Dressage at Devon Born in the USA Champion Stallion; USEF Zone Champion Open Training Level Dressage; USEF Zone Champion Materiale; USEF Reserve National Grand Champion Training Level Dressage; NEDA Year End Champion Materiale; 2014 Dressage at Devon Born in the USA Champion Materiale, 3 YO Stallions; USEF National Grand Champion Materiale; USEF Reserve National Grand Champion DSHB; USEF Zone Championships in both Materiale and DSHB; and, in competition year 2015, Royal Tourmalet SPF earned scores above 80% in Dressage Sport Horse Breeding, Materiale, and Open Dressage; and, earned Qualifying scores for the USEF National Young Horse Dressage Championships.
