Palomino Warmblood Mare Irissari

Palomino Anglo-Trakehner (BWP/ATA)

Incantator x Intent Two Bits x Tax Cut 

Born April 15, 1992

16.0hh (163cm)


Irissari has been used for several disciplines including trail riding and hunter/jumper, but has been a broodmare for most of her life.  She surprises her riders though by going beautifully under saddle after not being ridden for years (as in the photo only 2 days after coming to our farm).  Irissari has a solid temperament, is very laid back and responds best to a rider that uses soft hands.  She offers a consistent ride to both novice and experienced riders.  


Irissari comes from a long line of successful Trakehner competitors and as a result, she

is an ideal dressage mount.  Her grandsire, Preussengeist *E* (*E* = Elite), sired over 200 registered offspring, a number of which became ATA Champions in their respective disciplines.  His sons, Kobor Kincsem and Preussenwind, were the 1990 USDF All-Breeds Champion for Prix St. Georges and the 1982 ATA Champion for Fourth Level dressage respectively.


Her granddam, Indra V, produced 11 registered ATA foals that also made their mark in the dressage ring.  Her daughter, Imanda, was the 1999 USDF All-Breeds champion for Prix St. Georges and the ATA Reserve Champion in dressage.
Her great grandsire, Donauwind *E*, stood in both West Germany and Denmark prior to being imported into the U.S in 1982, and was described by the German Trakehner Stallion Book as “Very high quality, with very good breed and stallion type; good, proudly carried neck, clean overall impression; very well-balanced and harmonious in all parts of his body; quite strong and correct in his foundation; good mover. His get have pleasant dispositions and are easy to ride.”
Donauwind's son, Abdullah, was a member of the 1984 US Gold Medal Olympic Team in show jumping and received a Silver Medal in the Individual competition as well.  He was the USET Open Jumper Champion, ATA Open Jumper Champion, placed second in the $150,000 Culpepper Grand Prix and was champion of the World Cup Finals in 1985. He also received a Gold Medal in Team show jumping and Silver Medal in the Individual competition at the 1986 World Championships.  Another Donauwind son, Austin, was reserve champion of the 1996 USDF All-Breeds competition in both Prix St. Georges and Fourth Level dressage. 
Irissari also traces back to some world-famous and Hall of Fame Thoroughbreds including Mahmoud, Mah Mahal, Phalaris, Blenheim x 3, and Man 'O War x 2.  Her great grand dam, Lucky Two Bits, is none other than the dam of the very famous palomino Grand Prix dressage Thoroughbred stallion, Glitter Please.  

Irissari has produced a number of foals: a daughter of hers was a futurity champion in Texas.  Irissari has a superb athletic heritage and is a proven producer of outstanding foals.  She is a super easy keeper, requires very little feed to maintain her excellent condition and has great feet (shown above unshod).  She vetted clean in the Fall of 2008 and has had no health or soundness issues at all since we acquired her in 2005.  She has papers with the Belgian Warmblood Association (BWP) and the American Trakehner Association (ATA).
