Who doesn’t love a handsome, black stallion that offers three high-quality gaits, a gentleman’s character, and exceptional rideability? Rubinero is a special stallion that meets the characteristics in high-demand with breeders. His sire Rubinstein will be remembered as one of the great sires of the modern day sport horse. He has over 90 approved sons, more than 170 States Premium daughters, and his offspring have won over 2.5 Million Euro in competition. Rubinstein’s damline is particularly noteable. Antine is a full-sister to three-time Olympic competitor, Amon, and two-time Olympic champion, Ahlerich. Rubinero’s damline was developed from many generations of Gestut Vorwerk’s breeding program. Faola passed her Mare Performance Test with an overall score of 8.36, receiving a 9.0 for her willingness to perform, her canter, rideability, free jumping technique and a 10.0 for free jumping ability. Her sire, Ex Libris, sired both jumpers and dressage horses.

At his 70-day test Rubinero was second in the dressage phase with a score of 140.54. He achieved perfect 10’s for character and rideability. Rubinero was very successful in his development as a competition horse as well. In 2004 he participated in the Bundeschampionat, earned scores as high as 9.0, and was Reserve Champion at the State Championships in Rastede. In 2005 Rubinero again qualified for the Bundeschampionat for five year old dressage horses and took bronze at the Rastede Championships. He quickly moved up to the Advanced Levels and throughout his career the rideability and feeling he gives each rider has been highly praised. Dawn Bernardo purchased Rubinero late in 2013 and imported him to the US. With Dawn, Rubinero continued his winning ways with scores as high as 72.5% at Intermediaire I. Together they earned the USDF Region 3 Championships at Intermediaire and were Reserve Champions at Prix St. Georges.

From Rubinero’s early foal crops in Germany we saw many Premium Foals, including several selected for Elite Foal Sales and one that qualified for the German Foal Championships. Also from those early foals developed one licensed stallion and multiple States Premium Mares. In the US, Romantic Man was 2015 USDF Region 3 Champion for Third and Fourth Level Open, and went on to finish in the top six at the US Dressage Finals at both levels. Rosenball competes successfully at Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I.

Now is your chance to access this special stallion for your own breeding program.
