Imported from Spain as a three year old, this Qualified, FEI dressage stallion has made his mark in the US, both as a show horse and more importantly, through the significant accomplishments of his sons and daughters. His offspring are known for their extreme athleticism and charisma, performing well in halter classes and often winning the Best Movement medals at the ANCCE morphology shows. Dressage riders seek them out for their size, trainability, and correct gaits, especially their excellence in canter.
Faralay passes his outstanding character and work ethic to his foals, as well as his powerful, straight, uphill movement, size and substance. Most are born with a very people-oriented, can-do attitude which makes them so much fun to train and own.
His pedigree reveals his strong Escalera and Guardiola bloodlines: his mother is a granddaughter of Lebrijano III through her sire, Estudiante XII 1983. Faralay's sire, Ebanisto, a branded Guardiola stallion and a proven dressage performer and show horse himself in Spain and France, carries the blood of Maromo and Educado, two highly esteemed Guardiola sires. As far as we know, Faralay is the only breeding son of Ebanisto in the United States.
Faralay has competed in open dressage through the levels to Grand Prix. His sons and daughters are now making their marks in dressage circles.
Faralay earned the Qualified (or Calificado) distinction when he was evaluated at the TRC Tribunal, marking him among the top PRE stallions worldwide.
