Bay/Dun Swedish Warmblood (SWB)

Born April 7, 1986

16.0hh (163cm)

This mare didn't like her new herd mates and jumped out of her paddock so she could be with her friends.  The paddock's fences are 4'0" tall and she cleared it!  Astral is a beautiful golden bay (almost buckskin in color) Swedish Warmblood and is also approved Trakhener and OLD/ISR. Astral is a proven broodmare and has produced many premium foals: Her 2001 colt was one of the top scoring Swedish foals for the North American tour one year with scores of 9-7-9!


Astral is by Johanniter who was champion of his stallion testing at Aachen and finished in the top 25% of his 100 day test as a 3-year-old.  He was imported to the USA in 1985 as a breeding stallion, but was shown successfully through Third Level dressage. 


In Astral's pedigree, we find many famous Swedish and Trakehner jumping and dressage stallions including Tannenberg, who was Reserve Champion at the 1968 Neumünster approvals, Irak 363, who sired many premium offspring, and Jaguar 548, who competed at Z-Level (Third/Fourth) dressage in Germany and was rated A-Premium for his offspring in Sweden.  


Gaspari 340, who is arguably one of the most renowned dressage stallions in history, was an International Grand Prix competitor that participated in the 1960 and 1964 Olympics.  His very famous son, Piaff, won the European Championships in 1969 and 1971, the Individual Gold Medal at the Munich Olympics 1972 and the Silver Medal at the World Championships in Aachen in 1970 and again in Copenhagen in 1974. Gaspari is noted as having very good balance, tempo and elasticity that he consistently passes on to his offspring. They have a saying in Sweden: "Buy any dressage horse you like, just make sure it has Gaspari in the pedigree."  


Carajan is considered to be one of the ultimate Trakehner jumper of all time and has sired an outstanding number of top level show jumpers.  He has approximately 20 approved sons and over 80 daughters to his name, most of which possess his proud appearance, good size and frame, solid conformation, excellent gaits, willingness to work and jumping talent.
