Balius RDL is a stunning chestnut ANCCE approved stallion with a flaxen mane and tail. He stands just over 16.1 hands and is professionally halter trained by Sr. Ruperto Vasquez, voted IALHA 2018 Professional Horseman of the Year. Ruperto and Martin Arnold, our USDF Gold Medalist dressage trainer have put him under saddle. We have video of the very first time he was ever ridden. Paste this into your browser:
His sire is our imported 3 ANCCE stamp black stallion, bred by the Lovera family in Cordoba and imported by Rancho del Lago in 2016. The year Persiles was awarded the Recommended Dressage Morphology stamp, the Spanish web site states that 20,000 stallions on 12,000 breeding farms were genetically assessed and only 48 received this stamp. At that time there were only 4 blacks and Persiles is the only one of those outside of Spain. Incredibly, the dam of Balius also has the Recommended Dressage Morphology stamp. A mere 31 mares out of 7000 received that stamp. There are only a handful of horses in the United States wherein both sire and dam have multiple ANCCE stamps. We imported the dam Espinilla PLC from Madrid and took her to the IALHA National show in 2017. She received the highest score of all horses under the Spanish judge and was 1st place senior mare, Champion Mare all ages and Best Movement Adult Horse.
The name is derived from Greek mythology. Balius was the legendary chariot horse of Achilles in the Trojan War and reported had the gift of speech. The drone footage was filmed this past year for use in a future Bollywood movie. His current video can be seen on you tube at
