Royal Tourmalet SPF (“Artie”) is the perfect example of balanced conformation and power needed in Sport Horse Breeding; and, with his correct gaits and phenomenal temperament, you will produce performance horses suited for both professionals and amateurs.
Royal Tourmalet SPF 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. 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. Artie is producing lovely leggy foals with uphill builds, strong toplines, powerful hind ends, pure gaits and wonderful temperaments.
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”.
