Midnight Mashka is a 3/4 sibling to our stallion, Rashka, and already shows much of the same potential: the same great work ethic, rideability, and huge movement. He has a lovely, free-moving shoulder that just naturally creates extension well beyond most advanced, upper-level dressage horses. Although he is just starting under saddle, he is going to be a star in the show ring in no time. As a foal, he was Class I for SWANA, scoring 50 points at his inspection and 9 for gaits, and he is still one of the highest scoring foals ever in the USA and Sweden. His sire, Masterpiece, is Ken's most comfortable horse ever to ride, and Midnight Mashka shows that same level of ease under saddle. He should be the perfect cross for mare owners with back problems, who also desire to reach the higher levels of dressage without any back pain!
Sire: Masterpiece (SWANA & ISR/Oldenburg approved) was Reserve Champion of the 2002 30-day stallion test. He is the 2009 USDF Champion Mature Stallion and holds the highest median score ever given in USDF Dressage Sporthorse Breeding: 87.250%. He has scored as high as 84% under saddle, 88% in hand, 9 gaits, and a perfect 10 walk! A winner at DAD, he qualified FEI and open 3rd level at 5 years old. All but one of his foals we have presented have been premium/class 1.
Dam: Tashka is a Premium ISR/Oldenburg and AHHA approved mare, an 8-time Horse of the Year winner (4 USDF & 4 ISR/Oldenburg), a multiple regional championship winner, and a DAD Suitability winner. Her sire, Opus is Dutch registered and ISR/Oldenburg approved. He was 2006 USDF #1 Dressage Breeding Sire (2nd in 2005 and 2004), # 1 NA/WPN Dressage Breeding Sire for both USDF and USEF since 2004, and # 1 Producer of ISR/Oldenburg Premium Mares and Horse of the Year winners since 2005. Opus* received a dressage score of 140.59 at his stallion testing, one of the highest ever. He received the only 9 given in the gaits category (by all 4 judges), and one of only two 10's given in ridability! Opus has won 2nd place four times at Dressage at Devon and qualified to 3rd level by 5 years old.
