Chiquita Briar is a 16.3 hand Swedish Warmblood mare who at her inspection scored 8.5’s for her head, neck and body. She also scored 8’s on her trot and type. Chi Chi was trained to 3rd level dressage. Chichi was shown with her dam at Dressage At Devon in 2002 and was 4th in the 2002 Fillies class. Chi Chi has fantastic conformation with a long, elegant neck which she has passed this onto her three foals. Her movement is breathtaking, elastic shoulder with great reach and an active hind leg that reaches well under her body. She has gone through the SWANA inspection and inspectors say: this mare needs to be bred time and time again as she will produce top foals for the US. Chi Chi’s dam, Chanel was a Swedish Diploma mare and was also Elite Eligible with the American Hanoverian Society. Chanel was the Champion Non-Hanoverian mare at her inspection with an overall score of 7.5.
Sire, Briar has over 30 International GP wins including 3 Olympic games, 6 World Cups, 6 times Swedish Champion, and 9 time ranked #1 horse in the World by the World Federation of Sport Horse Breeders. He is the only horse both as a breeding stallion or individual competitor to ever accomplish this feat. Briar has had the longest career of any Sporthorse on record and competed at the International GP level for a record 10 years with no unsoundness in mind or limb. He was ranked as the #1 Happiest Competition Horse in the World by both International Judges and fellow competitors alike. Briar has produced many approved sons in Europe, Australia, Scandinavia and North America. Many of these are currently or previously competing to the Grand Prix levels in both Dressage and Jumping.
Damsire, Magritte was the winner of both the Dressage and Showjumping in his stallion licensing tests at Flyinge, Sweden. Some years later, he went on to become the Small Tour Champion of Sweden before commencing his Grand Prix career. Once Grand Prix, he qualified for the 2003 European Dressage Championships, with the highest score by a breeding stallion ever seen in Australia! His paces are still full of expression with amazing mechanics in piaffe and passage. This stallion makes the Grand Prix movements look effortless!
