Stratford is built uphill with natural cadence and the elastic, big gaits of his Grand Prix dressage sire Shakespeare RSF (Sandro Hit). He impressed the judges at his SWANA Inspection in 2014 and received straight 8's for the walk, trot and canter! He is full brother to Frame Shamrock, Martin's FEI event horse. In addition to talent, Stratford is very easy under saddle, naturally trusting, attentive to his rider and calm in new situations. He competed at Devon as a 3 year old, and has continued competing regularly since. He is currently competing at Novice-level eventing, and shows scope to continue up the levels. He is safe and predictable, suitable to be developed by an amateur in a program. He hacks out by himself and is a love in the barn. Another phenomenal prospect bred at Beall Spring Farm.
