This is a picture of a SWB mare by the elite stud stallion Master 850 that will have a offspring with our studstallion Donoso VII. We think SWB/ PRE is a truly interesting combination and we look forward to seeing this offspring move!

As my parents bred the swedish warmblood for 39 years, and I did a college degree in Flyinge National Stud, I have to present my favourite Flyinge studstallion; Master 850. He was trained by Kyra Kurklund that also competed him international toplevel. He won his World Cup debute and out of the 21 competed he won 18. FEI ranked him 7th best stud stallion 2007-2008. Some of his top offspring are Max (Kyra Kyrklund), Tip Top (Leslie Morse USA),  Master Mind (Natalie zu Sayn Wittgenstein, Denmark), Vivo (Maria Von Essen, Sweden). His movements are supreme and it is a joy to watch these two dance together!

Thank you all for your comments about Donoso's video, it is wonderful to be inspired and share the inspiration! Today we had 18 degrees at one point here in Madrid and Donoso and I went for a ride in the countryside with the majestic white mountains as a view and the sun shining. I appreciate this so so much, only the poor scandinavians know HOW much. Emma in Finland had -32C degrees today, she has beautiful and good moving PRE, but he is probably not moving at all right now..

Sharing the footage from Donoso's 2nd day clinic with Ignacio Rambla. Please note this video does not show finished or prefected forms, only exercises that aim to improve the quality of movements/exercises. Apart from Donoso's natural movements you can clearly see the horse's excellent work-ethics, how he responds to pressure, intensity and the new excercises. Enjoy!

I follow up with this presentation from yesterday; Ignacio Rambla is a foundation rider and teacher at the Spanish Riding School in Jerez. He was chosen by Álvaro Domeq to represent Spain for the first Olympic Games with PRE stallion Evento 1996. Evento is a Yeguada Militar stallion by the Agente, Maluso bloodline, same line as Donoso VII. He has over 260 offspring. Rambla obtained the first olympic title with Evento and 10 years later he won the team silvermedal. He is considered one of the best dressage riders in spanish history.

Ohh, don't know how to deliver this! I want to share it all because this was very inspiring. Worked the 'new' flying changes, trot work in half pass, canter pirouettes and piaffe as a follow up today and in the very effective and, 'herregud', very intense Ignacio-way!

The enthusiasm can be totally overwhelming, he controls every step and he wants you exactly THERE or HERE and NOW. So there is a constant flow of him telling you where to go, what to do and corrections. He always correct with stopping excerice and walk, start again. But it is not all bad, he is also generous with praises and exclamations like OLÈ! - CABALLO FANTASTICO! - MARAVILLOSO! So he definitely lifts your spirits whilst giving you a hard time, nice man. And we can take it, just bring it on! He really liked Donoso and said it was a long time since he saw a horse with such class, great movements and intelligent personality, olé to Donut!

I don't normally share my training as it is very personal stuff for me but I have decided I will post you the video of this clinic because I think you will enjoy it. But meanwhile here are the photos from today, even Javier was exhausted from trying to get all the action on photos and video, but I think he managed to catch the intensity and interaction real well.
