Royal Rubin himself  is a well made deep chestnut standing at 16.3hh and with his white stockings is an eye catcher in the dressage arena doubtless drawing attention to his elastic, powerful and elegant presence in the ring with his own profile page on Horse Scout.  This lovely, upstanding International Grand Prix stallion by Rubinstein has now retired from competitive dressage. Royal Rubin stands at Brownnscombe Stud in Devon, where the mares have every facility for both short and long term boarding and foaling.

Royal Rubin, is a Sachen-Anhalt with an impressive pedigree and a temperament which makes him a pleasure to handle and compete. He has a 70 day performance test with the Brandenburgh/Anhaltiner Studbook,and has been Accepted by WBS-UK, BHHS, and the Oldenburgh.

When you review this stallions career you cant help but be impressed. As well as an impressive dressage career Royal Rubin has an amazingly kind, gentle, straightforward temperament and these attributes are also seen under saddle. In competition his marks averaged between 65 – 76%.

His career gave him wins at Grand Prix including the Hamburg Derby in 2008 and Leipzig in 2009. After the Derby when the best 3 riders change horses for a short Grand Prix his owner and rider Heike Kemmer (team Gold and individual Bronze medal winner at the 2008 Olympics) said of Rudi “his willingness to work and his willingness to participate are always priceless. If I had several Rudi’s in the stable I would be totally lucky.” Royal Rubin also qualified for the World Cup finals.

His pedigree is exemplary, Royal Rubn’s sire Rubinstein, who needs little introduction, has 40 wins at Grand Prix, and he was a member of the 1996 Olympic team, sired 89 state premium mares and 66 approved stallions including Rodhiamant and Rotspon.

The dam line of Royal Rubin are predominantly jumpers. Barbarella is by Brandenburger who made his name in Puissance. He is also the dam sire of the incredibly well thought of stallion Quaterback. Brandenburger’s dam is by is the influential Hanoverian stallion Wendekreis, who is well known as a producer of riding horses with great trainability. Brandenburger was sired by Beach Boy, a KWPN stallion who sired 8 approved stallions and 239 competitive offspring who earned him a BLUP score of 137 for jumping and 143 for gaits. As a dam sire Beach Boy most famously sired Unika, dam of Arko lll who, ridden by Nick Skelton, was the number 1 horse in Europe for 3 years running.

Royal Rubin’s first crop of foals were born in 2014 and we were thrilled with them. They have excellent conformation, very uphill movement with good hock action and lovely temperaments. His fertility is excellent.
