Another great news to end the season. The ANCCE Stud Book includes in its list of PRE Elite Stallions our stallion JINETE IX.
As you can read on the website of the Genealogical Book, “stallions of 7 years old or older, with outstanding genetic qualities over the rest of the breed, who have obtained the category of Improver Stallion in the discipline in question and that exceed the requirements established annually by the association to enter this category ”. In summary, those stallions that improve the PRE breed, this being demonstrated with their results, as well as the results of their descendants.
In 2004, the Spanish Purebred Selection and Improvement Program was put into operation, the main objective of which is to improve the morphology, conformation and functionality of the PRE horse. Since then, few stallions have completed the exclusive list of Elite Stallions for Dressage. Ermitaño III was the first PRE to receive this distinction. To this day, another ten horses complete the list.
JINETE IX, stallion of Yeguada Mendoza Cadema, was Spanish Champion ANCCE Cup in SICAB 2013 at the 7-years-old level (Clasica 1 and 2) and at the age of 15 he is the father of horses such as PERDIDO CAD (son of Navaridas, he was Spanish Champion ANCCE Cup at SICAB 2016, in the category for 5-years-old horses) and mares such as SEVILLANA CAD.
