GIRASOL SAC is a beautiful 2009 Pure Spanish Andalusian Mare
Girasol is sweet, friendly, and has wonderful ground manners. She stands at little over 15.2H tall, just under 15.3H and has a broad body. She is a mare that would be happy as a broodmare or could be put under saddle, due to her kind and willing character. She has lovely attributes of the Spanish horse, a beautiful neck into shoulder, correct conformation with a lovely, very round and baroque outline, a gorgeous head and eye. Her movement is lovely with an expressive trot, lots of overstride and hock articulation, matched by a straight reach.
This classically build mare with beautiful movement has an illustrious heritage. Sired by ARRIOSO SAC out of DESIREE MAC. Both her sire and dam line ancestry is from the world renown Cartujano lineage, preserved for centuries by the Carthusian monks and later sought after by many of the top breeders in Spain.
Girasol's parents were born and imported from the famous stud of Miguel Angel Cardenas in Spain. Sr Cardenas passed away last year, leaving behind a legacy as the top winning breeder in recent history.
The Cardenas stud requires no introduction for those familiar with the breed. They produced more Spanish Champions and gold medal award winners than any breeder in history. Rarely were Cardenas horses imported to the USA. This represents a very rare opportunity.
Girasol's sire, Arrioso, is son of Gitano MAC (Qualified) and grandson of Classico MAC (Qualified; Champion of Spain) and Jubiloso VIII (Champion of Spain).
Girasol could be the cornerstone of your breeding program, or can be trained under saddle. She has a fantastic mindset to become an amateur partner. She has ground training in place, lunging in tack, and had her first ride in May 2020.
Girasol is available as the breeders are retiring due to family illness. She is revised with the Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse (PRE Mundial) and eligible for the Spanish Studbook. A total of 6 mares and 2 stallions are available. Located in Houston, TX. Contact us for video links and more photos.
