Incredible Soprano SSH an exquisite homozygous black, KWPN
Mare of outstanding beauty and a world class pedigree to
What more can we say other than she's "Incredible"
our homebred mare by the Grand Prix dressage Stallion Rubin
Cortes OLD out of the Elite KWPN mare "Bachoera SV"
(Samba Hit II x Krack C) maternal sister to our breeding
stallion Amoureux who's dam is the Ster Pref Prestatie mare
We have named her "Incredible Soprano SSH" a somewhat
musical note in nuance of her dam's stable name "Bach"
Her own stable name Sophia, after the dark eyed and beautiful
actress Sophia Lauren.
Sophia is an exceptional quality mare who has captured our
hearts with her mesmerising presence and glamour. She impresses
with her beautiful long lines, elegance and graceful light
Sophia has already brought home many red ribbons and trophies
with a 1st in the sport horse foal class at the prestigious
Royal Highland Show qualifying for the Scottish Sports Horse
Championship Finals 2013.
At Braco she stole the show and stood center stage winning
the sport horse foal class, Inhand Champion and Overall Sport
Horse/ Hunter Supreme Championship.
At the Scottish Sports Horse Championship Finals she stood
National Foal Champion Reserve to our homebred Infallible
SSH and ended the season in September as Champion Dressage
Foal at the UK KWPN Keurings Scotland and 2nd Highest scoring
dressage foal UK KWPN nationwide. She really is Incredible.
Now three years old Sophia has been confirmed in foal to
the dressage sensation Totilas. We await with great anticipation
on the arrival of this world class breeding.
A very special thank you to Marja and Simon at Stal
Barhorn in the Netherlands in gifting their very special
KWPN Elite mare Bachoera SV to
