Limelight's Sabre

Owned by Mr Rickard Rundqvist and foaled 1993.

This incredible Falabella stallion is a naturally ultra refined example of the Falabella breed,
demonstrating the extreme 'Arabian' type in miniature.

  He is registered with the Asociacion de Criadores de Caballos Falabella and the AMHA

but also an American Miniature Horse.

 

  He requires minimal show preparation -
his conformation has not been manipulated in any way.

  He left the Equuleus Stud for Sweden 'in utero'.

On 18th July 2012 he returned from Sweden to the Equuleus Stud on a breeding loan.
 He covered
eleven mares which resulted in eleven foals the following year and a number of foals since.

Our horses are DNA tested in order to ‘parentage qualify’.

This means that we prove that the horse you buy from us is sired by stallion ‘A’ and out of mare ‘B’.

Our DNA testing is conducted by the esteemed Animal Health Trust in Newmarket.

HRH the Princess Royal is its president.

The DNA test for parentage qualification is universal and can be shared internationally between laboratories with the consent of the horse owner.


Our horses are registered with either The European Falabella Studbook, The British Falabella Studbook or both.
Both
sanctioned by Maria L B de Falabella, and the only authorised Falabella studbooks in Europe.

Some of our horses are
also registered with other societies which include the BMHS and the AMHA.

Please let us know if you would like alternative registration for your horse
(in order to enter specific shows perhaps) and we will try to organize this where possible.

Falabella Al Graten.
An amazing pintaloosa Argentine import of 1973 which was offered as a prize in 'The Sun' newspaper competition and won by eleven year old Helen Sutcliffe in 1974.
Many of our foals carry the blood of this stunning little mare and many of the finest blue eyed Falabellas in Europe, the USA and the Middle East owe their quality to her. Read her story on the 'UK Archives' page.
