Versatile athleticism can be found throughout Vallado's pedigree. Vallado’s sire is the Voltaire son Now or Never M, who has a very high breeding value of 152 points for jumping on the German FN’s ranking system. Vallado’s damsire is the Thoroughbred Saros. This particular Thoroughbred line has had a strong influence in sport horse breeding and is also seen through the Trakehner stallion Consul.
A very versatile stallion of moderate size, Vallado will suit a variety of mares and breeding goals. Champion of his 30-day Performance Test, Vallado earned scores of 9.25 for character and rideability and earned no score less than 8. He competed as a Jumper up to 1.40 meters before his type and style caught the eye of top Hunter professionals. Renamed Praise, he racked up wins in both the High Performance Hunter division as well as in International Hunter Derbies.
Vallado is producing elegant, modern offspring with great athletic ability and rideablility. He has two approved sons, including Silver Creek’s Validation who was Champion of his 70-Day Stallion Test. Vallado offspring have competed at the World Championships for Young Jumpers in Lanaken and are winning in both the jumper and hunter rings. His offspring are also shining in Hunter Breeding, with two offspring finishing in the Top 8 at the Devon Horse Show. The type and character Vallado offers can be advantageous for all sport horse breeders. He does not typically add size and offers a medium bone and compact frame that compliments many of today's mares.
