THE BOLINGBROKE STUD
At the Bolingbroke Stud we have slimmed down to two PRE mares in the last few years, to allow us to keep some of our homebreds as potential breeding and display stock.
We have retained our two favourite and well bred mares Estrella CCXVIII and Amapola I and we are very proud of them as they are excellent examples of the breed.
Estrella is bred and branded by the famous Yeguada Salvatella and was born with exceptional movement. She is big standing 16.1 hh and is a modern Spanish type, bred for dressage.
We always put Estrella to very traditional, baroque Spanish stallions as we are looking to produce a stamp of horse that combines the best of the old and new, but with the quintessential Spanish looks and body shape and with extravagant, straight and flashy movement. Her foals never disappoint and are consistently impressive.
As well as her movement, they all inherit her kind, loving and steady temperament and we are desperate for her to produce a filly this year to retain and breed from!

Amapola I is from a long line of José María Escobar bred horses, with Martines Boloix, Escalera and other famous lines running through her pedigree.
Like Estrella, we were initially taken by her movement, but also couldn't resist her very traditional stamp and indomitable spirit when we purchased her in 2010. However, Amapola's most unusual feature is her colour because she is also a fantastic and rare shade of Dun!
Her coat is an iridescent shade of caramel and her body is smattered with dun markers such as strong shoulder barring that continues down her dorsal stripe along her spine to her tail. She also has leg barring and pale frosting on the outsides of her mane and tail to mention just a few peculiarities about her that make her stand out from the norm!
The three foals she has bred with us, which have both been out of our different stallions Romantico IV - bay and Bondadoso JR II - grey, have all inherited her strong dun features and are different shades of dun so we are looking forward to seeing what she produces in future years too!
