          Arrezzo is a striking stallion of modern type and correct conformation. He continues to stand out by not only his incredibly light and ground-covering breathtaking movement, but also by his unbeatable temperament. In 2019, Arrezzo was awarded Reserve National Champion Stallion by the CWHBA based on his scores at the stallion licensing. He was also awarded Silver Premium Performance Status with the Canadian Sport Horse Association based on his success in the 3'6 hunter division and young horse dressage divisions. 

          Arrezzo started his performance career in the 4 & 5 year old FEI Dressage classes with owner, Marjorie Wieben, where he consistently received scores in the 70s. In the dressage ring, Arrezzo was praised for his natural swing and elasticity of gaits, and superb hind-end drive. Since then, Tara has taken over the reins and he has pursued a career in the hunter ring where he continues to shine in the Open Green rated divisions. He stands out in the hunter ring by his 10+ technique over fences, incredible presence, and hack-winning movement. Although campaigned primarily in the hunters and dressage, Arrezzo has plenty of scope and is one of the most careful jumpers out there. 

         Arrezzo continued his performance career in the 3'6 First Year Green Hunter Division in 2021 with rider, Tara Wieben, where he was awarded reserve champion at Thunderbird Show Park and Champion at RMSJ. Arrezzo took a step back from the competition ring in 2022-2023 to focus primarily on his breeding career while his rider has focused on medical school. However, he is still one of Tara's favourite horses to ride and we plan to reintroduce him to the 3'9 second year green division in 2024.

       Beyond Arrezzo's value as a performance horse, the true marker of a good breeding stallion lies in the quality of his offspring. On this marker alone, Arrezzo has continually proven to be a phenomenal breeding stallion, always throwing exceptional offspring no matter the mare he is crossed with. He continues to stamp his foals with his characteristic beautiful refined head and lovely length of neck, of which he scored a 9.5 on at the CWHBA stallion licensing, kind disposition, floaty trot and rocking-horse canter. He is an excellent choice to add refinement and type to larger courser built mares, however, he has also proven to add bone and substance to lighter type mares as well. His offspring are not only eye-catching and athletic but they are conformationally correct with excellent feet and highly intelligent with superb trainability. As an added unexpected bonus Arrezzo has proven to throw chrome in his offspring--with several foals out of plain mares sporting belly spots and tall white stockings. 

       Arrezzo's oldest foal crop were started under saddle in 2020 and beyond impressed us with their ease of trainability, natural balance, and superb jumping technique. His oldest offspring are now successfully competing in the hunter, dressage, jumper and eventing rings with junior/amateur riders and professionals alike throughout North America. If you are looking to produce a stunning hunter jumper or dressage prospect with an exceptional amateur-friendly temperament, Arrezzo is the stallion for you.

        Arrezzo is sired by the GOV premium stallion, Soprano. Soprano himself had a successful career in the dressage ring at the Prix St. Georges level under Andreas Helgstrand and is sired by the legendary Sandro Hit who is one the world's most influential dressage sires. His grandsire, Sandro, was a champion 1.60m jumper and proven sire of hunters. Soprano's damsire, Contender, has continually been one of the world's leading jumping sires and has produced 127 approved sons in Europe and North America. Arrezzo's dam, Katz Kyra, is a premium Trakehner mare who showed early success in both the dressage and the jumper rings before an untimely injury limited her career to a broodmare. Arrezzo's damsire, Katalac, was the former foundation sire of Katalac Sport Horses who was valued for his consistent production of conformationally correct and atheltic offspring with outstanding temperaments and trainability. Arrezzo's lines also go back to the notable, Tin Rocco and Ramino, who were both successful 1.50m jumpers.
