Ibistrona “aka Stella” is a gorgeous, 2013 KWPN mare ready to strut her stuff with an ambitious goal driven rider. She is a fantastic sport mare with a natural willingness to move forward and three exceptionally flashy, quality gaits. Stella has a very nice ground covering walk; her trot is very elegant with an amazing cross over in the lateral movements; and she has a fabulous “cloud like” canter. She is sensitive, cooperative, and will give you an experience of suppleness and lightness, which is definitely an asset for competition. Stella has a great combination of energy and power in movement and collectedness in character. She’s easy on the aids, always trying to please her rider, and is a positively sensitive mare who always shows enthusiasm to learn.
Shown through the CDI small tour, winning in Terra Nova, Stella has scores as high as 69% in the CDI ring, 74% in the small tour freestyle and scores up to 75% at Fourth Level nationally. Her extensive show record from training level to most recently CDI Small Tour speaks for itself and is yet another example of the quality and trainability of this mare. Stella has been carefully developed, as can be tracked through this record, and is a wonderful horse to ride. She will be a fantastic show partner for the future.
Stella’s bloodlines speak for themselves. She was sired by Don Tango, the highest scoring dressage stallion at the 2011 KWPN Stallion Performance Test. Her Grandsire Contango is also a prolific stallion who had an exceptional sport career in both show jumping and dressage. He competed in the Grand Prix in both disciples, winning 33 Grand Prix dressage classes. He is a legendary stallion who has sired many Grand Prix horses in both disciples, including the equally legendary Ravel and various approved stallions including Don Tango.
Additionally, in the dam side of Stella’s bloodlines we see the stallion Sunny Boy, the first approved son by the former World and National Champion Sandro Hit. The name Sandro Hit speaks for itself with him being one of the most prolific and well-known dressage sires of all time. With the combination of these two bloodlines, it is no surprise that Stella has fantastic quality and has proven herself to be an exceptional performance horse.
