Blue Hors Santiano is a picture-perfect stallion out of a mix of the very best bloodlines. He was purchased as a foal at the stud of the Blue Hors Breeder of the Year 2020; Straight Horse by Eva Götzche and Mogens Pedersen in Denmark. The stud also owns his dam, the mare Romanik, who is out of an amazing dam-line with several highly praised mares and stallions.
In the fall of 2020, Santiano achieved a third place with 87,5 points in total and the impressive marks of 8 for walk, 8,5 for trot, 9,5 for canter, 8,5 for suppleness, 9 for self-carriage, ridability and interior as well as 9 for capacity at his 21-days performance test in KWPN.
In 2022, Santiano has participated in the Dutch Stallion Competitions, where he has achieved the top marks of 8 for walk, 9 for trot, 9.5 for canter, 9 for rideability and 8.5 for wholeness, besides also standing stud at Hengstenstation van Uytert, where he has covered almost 400 mares.
Santiano’s sire is the triple World Champion for Young Horses, the Blue Hors Zack son Sezuan. Sezuan is a highly respected producer of both talented and popular breeding stallions, championship winners, high-premium mares, as well as sought-after riding horses, all of which show talent for the most difficult exercises of dressage and an impressive gait – all in both domestic and foreign markets. Sezuan is also the only stallion already sire to several offspring who have won World Championships for Young Horses medals – and who are already on their way to top-level sport. The grand-sire is none other than Blue Hors Zack, who has long been in the Top 10 on the FEI’s world rankings and has competed in several of the biggest international dressage championships, including the 2020 Olympics, and who is also the sire of Sezuan’s half-sister, Straight Horse Ascenzione, who is a successful World Championships for Young Horses finalist and now victorious in international small tour.
