Smeraldo STH is a beautifully bred 12-year old Austrian warmblood gelding who combines three balanced basic gaits (all scoring between 8.0 - 8.5) and a very high rideability. This noble horse has an outstanding character. He is a very elegant riding horse with much swing, a sports partner who always tries to please his rider and is light on the aids.
Smeraldo was a licensed stallion as a youngster. He is sired by Swarovski (by Sandro Hit x Don Gregory) who was the reserve champion of the 2006 Oldenburg stallion Licensing. Dam Gloriette was a multiple winner in dressage horse tests.
Smeraldo won the Austrian Young Horse Championships as a 4-year old and participated in the Austrian team selection trials for the World Championships for Young dressage horses. Now trained and successful at S-level shows, Smeraldo has been gelded three years ago to be focused on sport. In 2020 he could not compete because of Covid-19 restrictions. This gave plenty of time for Smeraldo to be developed towards Grand Prix level.
Smeraldo, who is amicably called "Smergi", was a stallion till the age of 9 and has produced very interesting offspring. As a gelding, he is an absolute darling to ride and handle. This liver chestnut has an outstanding temperament and rideability, making him highly suitable for junior/young riders who aspire an Under 25 show career, as well as for adult amateurs who are looking for a classically schooled dressage horse with all the buttons there.
Smeraldo is a horse for an ambitious competition rider. He is healthy, has a fun character, and has been carefully trained.
Located in a private stable in the middle of Austria (Styria).
Nearest airport is Graz (35 - 40min) or Vienna airport (1h30).
