SOLIANKA LS ( Santa Cruz x Always Katelyn )
2005 Rose Grey, Mare, Registered Oldenburg NA by Santa Cruz (San Diego x Grandessa) out of Premium Oldenburg Always Katelyn (xx)
Solianka LS aka “Sally” is a 3 yo, stunning rose grey with black points, registered Oldenburg mare, expected maturity approximately 16.1H.
Sally arrived from her breeders farm to Thornridge Manor in the summer of 2008. She has blossomed in maturity and is a true pleasure to work with. Sally quickly acclimated to her new environment and turnout routine. She has been handled daily and has been easy every step of the way: sporting good ground manners, easy trailering/loading, crossties, bathes, and is currently lunging with full tack. Sally will start under saddle in the beginning of September 2008 and we again expect her to handle the change in her life with style. Sally is a curious and classy mare that is sure to be competitive in dressage, eventing, or show hunters -- the choice is yours! In addition to her performance versatility, Sally’s blood lines and solid conformation and powerful movement make her a sound investment as a breeding prospect.
Sally’s Dam is an approved Premium Oldenburg: Always Katelyn is a 1995 TB by It’s Always You out of Burt’s Reward (by Masked Dancer). In 2004, Always Katelyn was awarded 4th place out of all mares from the East Coast inspections.
Sally’s Sire is the German Verband Approved, Santa Cruz, who placed 3rd in his 1994, 100 day stallion testing as only a 3 year old. Santa Cruz was the stallion that received a 9 on temperament and he is a proven producer of good dispositioned offspring. Through his successful competitions in the North and on the Florida Circuit coupled with his quality foals, Santa Cruz is recognized by many East Coast professionals as the “best kept secret in the breeding shed”.
