Solaris Flambeaux, a chic, modern, elegant, bay colt, strikingly marked with his two front white socks and two hind stockings. From birth he has shown quality in his movement with exceptional reach in all three paces. His Trot is truly off the floor at every stride and his canter powerful and uphill with a very long stride in walk.

Flambeaux is bred in the purple with both Internationally recognised World Class jumping and dressage bloodlines including Krack C, Contender, Nimmerdor, G Ramiro Z, Grand Veneur, Flemmingh, Pik Konig and Wendekries.

Flambeaux is a very special colt for us as he is very much the product of our own breeding program. His sire is our own Amoureux and his dam "Solaris Achanenna" a hombred filly by Umenno who combines the bloodlines of Nimmerdor and Pericles that when combined through Glendale produced the great Moorlands' Totilas dam Lomminka.

Achanenna's dam is also a hombred SSH "Ster" mare "Solaris Chiquita" out of our foundation State performance tested and successful showjumping "Keur" mare "Quinine" who had a successful career in sport. Chiquita is a combination of two very influencial bloodlines "Contender" and Grand Veneur that are found in the bloodlines of many great show jumpers such as Le Tot De Semilly and more recently Diarado that sold at auction for over one million Euros to Paul Schokemohle, the Holstein Verband and Joop van Uytert.

The bloodlines:

His sire "Amoureux" has consitently won young horse qualifiers with scores of 78-80% having qualified for Badmington Young Dressage Horse Of The Future, Sheerwater Potential International Dressage Horse, the Sheetwater British National Young Dressage Horse both as a five and six year old under International Grand Prix Dressage Rider Michel Assouline, with a Double win at Sheepgate Premiere League in the Hickstead Young Horse Qualifier and Medium SOQ75 and a finalist in the Sheerwater 6YO Championship. The duo also qualified for the Regional Championships placing ninth in the most difficult of the medium tests M75 with just a years training under saddle and with very little competition experience.

He had obtained over 50 victories from the age of 4 – 7 with 17 wins at Prix st Georges, placing 4th at the World Championships in Verden in the six year old class. Other wins include the Belgian 4, 5 and six year old Dressage Champion title. Saros' progeny are equally as talented in jumping as they are in dressage. Saros's sire is the famous G Ramiro Z who competed in classes of 2.20m and perhaps most renown as sire of the famous Olympic gold medallist Ratina Z out of the famous Holstein mare Heureka Z. This combination of German bloodlines has conistantly proven to be a winning combination.
