Silvester Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of eventing In Vogue II for her breeder Brigitte Jacquillard in the 2014 season. She has a fabulous temperament and is very scopey and brave. She went from a novice to 2* in one season and took everything in her stride. Silvester is becoming better known on the eventing circuit and I wouldn't hesitate in taking on another of his progeny for this job.”
Rosie Fry
“Our first foal by Silvester was born in 2008 and had so many of his sire’s qualities; presence, wonderful movement and great temperament. We had no hesitation in using Silvester again to breed from two mares in 2010. All our mares are bred by AI, so the quality of semen is very important to us. In every case our mares have held to the first insemination using Silvester’s semen. We are looking forward to the safe arrival of two more Silvester foals in May 2011”
Joan Cadzow, Duncrahill Stud
“Alice is the most wonderful yearling. She already has fantastic and exciting paces, is very easy to handle with very good manners and a lovely temperament. We were thrilled with Silvester as the sire, he is top class and we would definitely use him with our mare again.”

“Silvester’s Darcy lives up to her name. She looks like and has the gentle temperament of her gorgeous father and moves, well, like a famous ballerina. We have yet to back her but she walks in hand beautifully. The best thing about her though is her personality. She is endlessly curious but not in a mischievous way and bounds over to us when we appear or call her name, whether in the stable or in the paddock. She really enjoys contact with all animals: dogs, cats, people and of course other horses.”

"Silvester’s conformation, athleticism and kind nature are clear to see. What is equally impressive when you look further is his genetic generosity - the consistency with which he produces trainable high quality foals with dams of a wide range of breeds."

"Over the past five stud seasons Silvester had demonstrated consistantly high fertility with excellent conception rates"

“I have used Silvester three times and will certainly do so again. His superb foals keep me coming back. First time I wondered if I was being extravagant but the offspring now prove he is worth every penny. We are competing our first four y.o. this year and she is a very exciting prospect. Silvester is a serious sport horse sire and a lovely person and consistently passes on his top class qualities.”
