Sire: Toreadore

Valadore was born in Vienna on the side of a pastoral hill. He has spent years training in the Haute Ecole of the Spanish Riding School. He performs with the world renowned Lippizans! This is dressage at its highest level of achievement! It takes years of training to perform the beautiful advanced moves like the “Capriole”, an amazing leap in the air with hind legs lashing out behind, or a “Courbette”, a vertical rearing leap, with arched neck, and tucked hooves. The Lippizan breed goes back to 1580 when an imperial stud was founded in Lipica, Austria, for which the breed is named. The region is now part of modern Slovenia.
