16.2 h, Bay (EeAa)

Here is a daughter of very successfull Rio Grande! She brings to our little herd some very potent jumping lines. Her sire is very well known in North America being one of the most successfull stallion of the last few decades with numerous USDF Sire of the Year awards. Her dam line is also jumping bred with the very successfull Grand Prix jumper Golden Miller by the super sire Gotthard- a must in a Hanoverian jumping pedigree! The famous G line bringing jump and rideability. We are very happy to have acquired this fine mare.
She is proving to be a exceptional mother we find that she usually outproduces herself.

Raphiola has been sold.

Raphiola delivered a perfect bay colt by the celebrated stallion Sandro Hit at the end of June. This stallion requires no introduction and we think he will compliment beautifully Raphiola and that she will bring her strong jumper bred hindquarters to the equation for a well balanced, modern, dark coated foal with potential for both the dressage or the top hunter ring.
The colt is everything we hoped for: typey, leggy, with a great engine and a lovely alert personality. He is quite a charmer!
San Raphael was sold in-utero.


Raphiola delivered a perfect bay colt on the summer solstice. This colt is by Hotline (Hofrat X DeNiro) a stallion renowed for the excellent quality of his offsprings combining excellent trainability, rideability and abilty for dressage. This colt is light on his feet and developing nicely, alredy uphill and using his hindquarters very well. Is temperament is lovely: he is bold and playful but respectful, full of energy and yet patient when we handle him. He is developing well physically and mentally and we are quite impressed by how he carries himself.
SOLD in utero-Congratulations to Kathryn Morrison of Whitehorse, Yukon.


Raphiola delivered a chesnut colt by the sensational jumping stallion and sire Incolor (Indoctro X Argentinus) at the end of July 2011. This colt is exceptional in many ways: perfect conformation, georgeous round canter, extremely bold and brave temperament, friendly and learning quickly. He's got good size, is developing quite well and keeping his lovely topline. Difficult to ask for anything else! Everyone involved with this colt is thrilled!

Prior to 2011

Prior to 2011 Raphiola delivered three foals for her previous owners.

In 2005 she had a filly by Coleur Rubin- Simply The Best (VIDEO)
Currently doing very well on the show circuit: In the Young Jumper Championship (YJC) Five Year Old division, Barrios won the first class with his horse Simply the Best, a Oldenburg mare by Couleur Rubin. They went on to place first and second during the week. Barrios has been very pleased with her performances this year. He pointed out, “She did 10 weeks at WEF and was clear in every class. I think she's going to be a superstar. She's fast, careful, nice to ride, and is very smart.”-jenniferwoodmedia.com

And she's done it again in 2011:
"Canadian-bred Simply the Best continued her winning ways from 2010 by taking top honors in the 6YO YJC Qualifier in an 8-horse jump-off. Simply the Best was piloted to the top of the 2010 YJC standings by Pablo Barrios, and seems to have lost none of her edge since last season."- from the young jumpers.com website.

Simply the Best is in the stable of Pablo Barrios

In 2010, she had a colt by the stallion Cardento called Capital Riot.
