HARTHILL Stud stallions Ramiro B and Arkol will be showcased at the British Stallion Event at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire.

The one day spectacular at Hartpury College on January 3, brings together many of the leading stallions from the UK and Europe.

The event allows owners to present their stallions while commentary is provided with a biography of the stallions’ pedigree, competing history and notable progeny.

Before the demonstrations get underway the stables are always busy with potential mare owners wanting to view the stallions first hand.

Said Nina Barbour of Harthill Stud: “We are delighted to be taking Ramiro B and Arkol to the British Stallion Event.

“They are two very different types at both ends of the spectrum in terms of their careers as stallions.  Arkol, at seven-years-old is just starting out while Ramiro B is long established and highly sought.”

At the British Stallion Event, Arkol, a top class, modern day showjumper will be ridden by William Whitaker.

The son of Argentinus – also the sire of Nick Skelton’s former top ride, Arko lll – is known for his trainable attitude and athletic ability, already making a name for himself on the showjumping circuit.

Ramiro B, needs no introduction with the sire of Nations Cup level showjumpers and 4* Eventers providing a blend of some of the best Belgian Warmblood and Holstein bloodlines available today.

He is currently 10th in the Event Horse Sire World Rankings, created in total FEI points accumulated by the success of his progeny, and is also the only stallion in the top 10 available with fresh semen into the UK and Ireland, with frozen available worldwide.

Offspring include leading eventers Cooley Masterclass, Noble Bestman and Ballynoe Castle RM, while in the world of showjumping Ramiro Cruise, Samgemjee and Heracross all show superb talent.

In the 2014 Go for Gold Sale at Gorsebridge, a three-year-old Ramiro B gelding certainly caught the eye making a fantastic €53,500.

Harthill Stud is also the home of the Thoroughbred stallion, Power Blade, well known for producing event, show jumpers and show horses.

Power Blade is an Approved Irish Sport Horse Stallion and Approved by Sport Horse Breeding GB.  Progeny include event horses Power Line and Power Drive, show jumpers Wexford and Shantonagh, and show horses Woodfield Indo and Hitman.
