Yeguada de Ymas Breeding on the World Stage - Juan Matute and Team Matute
Training the Ymas horses up the levels to international competition, Paula Matute (18 yrs old) and Juan Matute Jr (16 years old) prove to the world that age doesn't matter as much as dedication and passion for the horses. Together they dominated the 2014 Wellington winter dressage circuit. Juan Matute Jr recieved the highest score in the CDIO Nations Cup in the small tour, to go on to place third, winning the individual bronze medal with Don Diego Ymas with a beautiful freestyle score of 75.3%. Paula beat her brother aboard Firmamento Ymas in the Junior Team test in March 2014 with a score of 70.946% and Juan Jr a second on Dhannie Ymas with a score of 70.856%.
The philosophy is clear, Yeguada de Ymas cares for the whole passion of the animal from birth through high level training at the top level in the sport of Dresssage. The horses love what they are doing and the team truly is building a solid foundation one day at a time for future success. Together they start with good solid horses, either born and bred in Spain, or adopted to build the philosophy toward the interantional stage, to show the beginnings of a bright future.
