Opposition Bombshell – what a stunner! Catherston Stud Hampshire Sports Performance Stallion bred to Event.

Handsome and strong black 16hh Trakehner Stallion Opposition Bombshell is a very eye-catching horse with tremendous presence, a beautiful head and  a good length of rein.

His paces are bold, expressive, and off the ground. Opposition Bomshell is standing at The Catherston Stud in Hampshire. His profile on Horse Scout shows he is SHB - GB Graded Fully Licenced with the AESB.

Unfortunately as a 4 year old opposition, Bombshell injured himself in the field so has not competed himself. He had four foals in his first crop in 2012, 3 of whom were presented at the BEF Futurity Evaluations, all 3 were awarded Higher Firsts, which gained opposition Bombshell 2nd in the Eventing Stallion Rankings.

He is standing 3rd in the All Time Sire Component Rankings on the BEF Futurity List.

He would make an excellent choice for breeders looking to add some quality: All-rounder, Dressage, Eventer, Jumpers / Show Jumper, Showing, Sports General.

A small but perfectly formed Dowland K.O. Bo Diddley BWBS Stallion standing at Brownscombe Stud.

A BWBS 15hh Trakhener, Dowland K.O. Bo Diddley, an ideal sire to produce competition ponies and small competition horses. Considered by the grading judges to be “an improver type with good elasticity”, Dowland K.O. Bo Diddley was The Reserve Champion of the Sports Pony Studbook Society at the 2009 Grading and made history by becoming the first pure Trakehner to Grade as a Sports Pony Stallion, Dowland K.O. Bo Diddley carries some of the best dressage bloodlines.

Dowland K.O. Bo Diddley has an outstanding temperament and a superb loose jump. He carries some of the best dressage bloodlines and his foals, out of a variety of mares, have all inherited his lovely athletic movement and temperament. His oldest progeny will be backed in 2014/5. Horse Scout is looking forward to seeing their profiles uploaded and watching their progress.

At his grading, Dowland K.O. Bo Diddleyey scored a nine for his canter, which was described by the judges Lynne Crowden and Geoff Glazzard as “athletic” with “good cadence and engagement of hindquarters”. The judges described his loose jumping as having “natural freedom and a lot of scope”.

Bo has been backed and brought on slowly, and is proving to be exceptionally trainable.

Dowland K.O. Bo Diddleys’ sire Holme Park Kalibre is a full brother to the graded Trakehner stallion Holme Park Krug. Kalibre is no longer entire and Bo is his only entire son, and his Dam Holme Grove Cezanne is a graded BWBS pony mare.

This is a lovely small stallion and well worth checking out.
