for your consideration. Lusitano: Maeve CAL: Two for one package.
Maeve is a three year old, buckskin, APSL approved in the adult studbook - mare, by Xemino and by Cuarlova PL. She has passed her studbook approval, Price $17,000.
Maeve is pregnant for a 2020 foal by Jade Da Serenadinha. Jade is a magnificent, imported buckskin Lusitano stallion. Jade represents the absolutely best Lusitano dressage bloodlines in Portugal.
Jade’s powerful genetic lineage gives him extraordinary and correct conformation. He is truly a genetic storehouse of the best of the Lusitano breed. Evidence of this is that he has already won a silver medal from the APSL in the USA; an achievement that few Lusitanos attain.
What makes Jade so unique is his laid-back personality and eagerness to please, combined with a strong work ethic and enormous presence.
Maeve is very Veiga in personality, genetics and breed-type. She is sensitive, very athletic and if bought as a future performance horse, she will give back 200% what is given to her in training, if done correctly. She is very smart and listens intently to her trainer. She is honest. This is not a horse that will accept harsh methods. She had very little handling before we bought her as a young two year old. Now, she loves people and wants to bond to that special person. She requires a sensitive trainer, as all Veiga horses do. She is halter broken, likes people, low in the pecking order in the pack. She prefers a home where she is not placed in a large herd.
This is a mare that is going to give someone so much and a foal too!
Height 15.3 hands (will grow taller)
APSL score: 68 points.
Color: light buckskin (not grey)
