  • RCMP Stallion High Spirits is an absolute gentleman both in and outside the breeding shed who demands presence
  • Level headed, respectful, high energy but extremely easy to handle
  • Pleasing to the eye, this modern type stallion pocesses the refinement and atheletism of his grandsire Prince Thatch xx
  • Like his sire Hohenstein (Premium Stallion status, 2002 Trakehner Stallion of the Year) he produces beautiful clean moving horses with natural competitiveness and excellent rideability
  • The free flowing uphill drive inherited by many of his offspring can be attributed to the jumping lineage of Don Carlos and Pik Bube, to name a few
  • His diverse offspring have excelled in various discipline arenas, including 3 successful RCMP bred daughters currently in the Breeding program, all of which are passing down the favourable talent, temperament, and attributes of their remarkable sire
