Long legs, huge dark eyes with elegant tippy ears on a ultra long awesome shaped neck sweeping into a laid back shoulder, this colt has quality stamped all over him. Crusader not only possesses beauty and size with loads of athletic ability needed to succeed in the show ring, but he has incredible potential as a stallion in a breeding program.Crusader comes from a proven successful cross of mare and sire lines.
He has full blood siblings with World Championship titles, such as World Champion My JigSaw Puzzle CTA and Starlight Express CTA .
His maternal sister, Sugar N Spice CTA took multiple World Championship titles the only time she was shown.
His 2008 3/4 sister, Fortuna PaintedMoon, (same sire out of maternal sisters) was inspected Oct 2008 by the American Warmblood Registry and received a 1st Premium! This is the first foal we have bred to be inspected by the AWR. She will be entered into the AWR 1st Premium Breeding Mare book.
He is the only full brother to multiple International Champion Kings Muscateer CTA, who has done exceptionally well overseas.
(Kings is pictured below as a 15.2H yearling with his owner, Sharon Thorne.)
Kings Muscateer CTA was bought by Sharon Thorne as a weanling and exported to England, UK.
As a yearling competing against older horses King and Sharon won many championship titles including 3 at the most prestigious UK shows:
2006 CHAMPION- Any breed - Any type of horse- Youngstock -Coloured Horse Championships UK
2006 Res. CHAMPION Coloured - National AHS (Arabian Horse Society) Show
2006 Res. CHAMPION Coloured - Ponies UK Championship Show
Crusader looks very similar to King and should also mature around 16H,
with a promising future show career ahead of him also.
