An Evening With Ramiro B and Oliver Townend at Bolesworth, Cheshire
LOOKING for a stallion for your mare for next season or simply wanting to get up close up and personal with one of the leading sires of the day?
The legendary Belgian Warmblood Stallion, Ramiro B will be the focus of a celebratory evening at Bolesworth Castle near Tattenhall, Cheshire on November 28, 2018 from 5 – 8pm.
There will be a presentation of Ramiro B and his progeny at 6.30pm, followed by a talk from Oliver Townend.
Number four on the WBFSH sire rankings for eventing stallions Ramiro B truly is something special. Following exceptional performances from numerous 3 and 4* level progeny this season, he is yet again set to rise up the leader board.
The Grand Prix winning stallion not only has competition success to pass on to his offspring, he has fantastic good looks and excellent form. His truly special and sought after temperament that comes through in his progeny consistently shines through. He is an outstanding dual-purpose stallion for both eventing and show jumping and is well known for his long list of successful progeny.
Said owner Nina Barbour:
Ramiro B offspring have had a phenomenal year in 2018. We really want to celebrate his success as a stallion and the results of his progeny.
Thee mark he has made, especially in the worlds of eventing and show jumping is extremely special. We felt an evening to recognise his achievements would be brilliant.”
Examples of his offspring include the Oliver Townend rides Cooley SRS, second at Badminton this year. Cooley Masterclass, another of his progeny was the Lexington winner, this year.
Owned by Angela Hislop, Cooley SRS is an Irish Sport Horse bred by John Fitzhenry. By Ramiro B, he is out of Ballynattin Pride and has been produced by Oliver from his early days. He was his ride at the 2017 European Championships when winning team gold although Badminton was the horse’s first four-star.
Both Cooley SRS and Cooley Master Class are fine examples of what a fantastic sire Ramiro B is.
It is clear he produces great talent and strong sport horses that move and jump exceptionally well. Neither of these horses are out of full Thoroughbred mares, proving that Ramiro B produces quality horses with stamina to win.”
Ramiro B was the first horse to have been made an ambassador with the BWP studbook due to his phenomenal breeding record. His pedigree includes some of the best jumping lines including Belgium Warmblood and Holstein.
Event rider Georgie Strang is also a huge fan of the majestic bay stallion and said:
I have the pleasure to ride Cooley Earl and Red Hot Cooley both of which are sired by Ramiro B. He has definitely put his stamp on these two event horses with his good looks and excellent temperament.”
The evening will start with the chance to meet Ramiro B from 5pm in the Equestrian Complex at Bolesworth Castle. The official parade will be at 6.30pm and a talk by Oliver Townend will follow. Drinks and canapes will be served from 5pm and the evening will come to a close at 8pm.
Mare owners who attend the evening will have the chance to book a covering with Ramiro B for 2019. Numbers next year will be strictly limited. The stud fee is £950 plus VAT.
