Born November 2018, this chestnut colt is a serious dressage prospect.
His full brother last season was assessed by Gerd Kuest in the ACE Group 2017 assessment tour and scored 8.5s for neck, saddle position, shoulder, frame and top line, with an 8 for overall type and a 9 for walk. Zip had an overall score of 78.5% (Premium). His dam Donnerstar F was also classified into the Main Mare Studbook, scoring 79.5% for movement.
Tyro was ACE assessed ELITE in March 2019, with 8s for head, topline, shoulder, forehand, hindquarter, gaits, overall appearance, 8.5s for neck and walk. Comments included “Good overtrack and walk, powerful trot and canter”. His dam is both ACE and Oldenburger Pferdezuchtverband registered.
Tyro's sire is Rubicon's fully licensed warmblood stallion by Royal Hit (Imp, dec). LL Tyranny has been ACE assessed and awarded 8s for neck, forehand, foreleg, walk, trot, canter, swing and elasticity and overall appearance, with an overall score of 79% under saddle. He has so far sired six Premium foals and one Elite out of eight assessed.
Tyranny had his dressage debut in 2016, and has won Champion ribbons at all levels from Prelim to Medium. He is commencing Advanced this season, and training FEI movements, with superb 2 x tempi changes, pirouettes and collected work. Judges consistently comment on his correct and expressive movement, with especially high marks for his lengthened paces.
Tyro is an excellent prospect for dressage and showing, and could be used as a registered breeding stallion with his very marketable bloodlines.
