This line of Appaloosa carrys NO Quarterhorse pedigree and is solely made up from Appaloosa and performance TB.
Sunnys sire Highfield Vivaldi was a gloriously good looking Trakehner stallion from the well known line of Donauwind. Donauwind was sire to may great show jumpers but probably most notable would have been the mighty grey stallion Abdullah.H.Vivaldi was bred in the UK in 1994 by Richard Selleck, owner of Highfield Stud in Newbury and renowned Trakehner stallion producer.
Vivaldi’s mother was an Intermediate (2*) eventing mare and was a beautiful cross of TB and Arabian blood.
Vivaldi competed to a high level in the UK in Show jumping and Dressage with Richard and business partner Caroline Lovejoy.
His British stock didnt disappoint with many BYEH finalists and all going on to have successful careers in the show ring, dressage and Horse Trials.
Vivaldi came to Australia in 2005. His Australian story can be read in full on his stud page on the website. He was my first stallion and he taught me tactfulness and patience. He would work his heart out for you as long as you were fair. I enjoyed many many wonderful hacks out in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside with him before we came to WA
