We imported Trovador II from Spain in 1999.  He was bred by
D. Samuel Vilaire Cifre  /  Yeguada Vilaire.

Before his importation Trovador II accumulated many gold and silver
awards in "Conformation" and "Best Movement".  In addition he was just
beginning a dressage career before importation.

Trovador's sire Belico III is from the famed Terry stud in Spain, among his
accomplishments are many championships including being named the "National
Champion of Spain" in 1984.  Belico III was the last Terry horse to stand at
the Terry Stud and Rumasa before being purchased by Sr. Vilaire.

Trovador's mother, a bay mare from the Marin Garcia stud in Spain a
Champion too.  Her accomplishments boast gold medals in "Conformation" and
"Best Movement" as well as "Overall Champion in Best Movement".   
Trovador's conformation, type and movement are a testament to his breeding.  
His extension and impulsion from behind is extraordinary, not just for an
Andalusian but for any breed.  Trovador II is the sire of the imported bay
stallion Almirante XLVIII.

Trovador stands 16.1 hands.  He has sired bay, black and grey foals.  He
passes on his presence and gentle nature, which is the haulmark of the
Andalusian Horse.
