Figaro R 1085
2005 Swedish Stallion Test Winner: Rideability
In Sweden, Figaro was the Breeder's Trophy Stallion of the Year in dressage in both 2011 and 2012. His approved son, Faustino 1244, was winner of the Breeder's Trophy Final, first as 4 yr old and then in 2012 as a 5 yr old and was first place at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses trial at Flyinge with a score of 79.2. Figaro’s daughter, Barcelona, was the winner of the Breeder's Trophy final for 6 yr olds in 2012 and also a finalist in the Young Horse Championships. In 2013, she placed fourth in 7 year olds at Falsterbo.
Figaro's first foal crop in the USA in 2016 included Top Colt at the Hanoverian Inspection and First Premium foal at the Swedish Inspection. 75% of all offspring were rated Class I by Swedish judges. Figaro is incredibly prepotent regarding temperament and disposition. Even bred to the "toughest" mares, his offspring all inherit his kind, gentle temperament and amazing ability to want to please their riders. Figaro is a world class breeding stallion and a world class family horse as well. Now sound after his injury, he is a schoolmaster for myself and my teenage daughter and is very forgiving. Our instructor from Sweden states: "It is amazing to find such a high quality stallion as Figaro here in this arena. He is a top breeding stallion and I have now seen firsthand that his temperament is super! He is very attentive to and tries hard to please his rider, even now in breeding season." - Ann Clemedtson, dressage judge, Sweden. You will not be disappointed in a foal by Figaro!
