As a 2 year old, Fabrizio became the 2014 SPSS Grading Champion Stallion gaining a huge score of over 81%. He was awarded excellent marks for all three gaits, conformation, his jump and an incredible 19 out of 20 for his superb temperament. The Judges comments included ‘super hindleg’, ‘powerful and correct movement’ and, the best of all, ‘every time you look at this pony he makes you smile!’


Fabrizio was backed in late 2015 and started his dressage career in 2016.  On his very first outing in early May, he was not only fantastically well behaved and mannerly but also surpassed all expectations coming 2nd in his first test with over 65% then winning his 2nd test with over 71%.


In June 2016, Fabrizio, ridden by Charlotte Drakely, competed in the Wellington Premier League BD Young Pony (4 year old) class, where he score 71%, placed 3rd in a strong class and qualified for the final at the Hartpury Festival of Dressage.


In 2017, he was competed very lightly, but had a successful first outing at Elementary in the summer gaining good scores and 1st and 2nd places.


Working at Advanced Medium level at just 6 years old, Fabrizio is showing enormous potential with clear talent for collection for the higher levels. In 2019, he will be produced in all 3 disciplines and compete in eventing

Offspring/Breeding Advice

Fabrizio is ideal to produce part-bred Welsh sports horses and ponies as well as pure-breds. He has the movement, conformation and an absolutely fabulous temperament to pass on to his offspring.


2015 was Fabrizio’s first stud season and he sired 2 fabulous colts in 2016, both out of dressage pony broodmares, and both inherited his athletic movement and fantastic temperament.  His first was born on the 13th May and has inherited his sire's extravagant trot (see photos here).


Three of Fabrizio's progeny were presented to the SPSS in 2017, the first a yearling colt Escadas Maracana bred by Julie Croghan, was awarded a Gold Premium, the second a filly Marbella Surprise, also bred by Julie Croghan was awarded a Premium. Finally, a colt foal Bromson Distinction, bred by Claire Wyatt was also awarded a prestigious Gold Premium. This is an incredible achievement and proves the quality Fabrizio passes on to his offspring.
