Montero del Bosque is a beautiful upright bay PRE colt born May 26, 2019. He is by the 16.0hh black Martinez-Boloix, Escalera, and Urquijo bred PRE stallion, , and out of the PRE Indiano XVIII daughter, Marquesa del Bosque.
Montero (‘huntsman’ in Spanish; also a member of the Royal Guard in Spain) is very
kind, curious, and willing. The only white markings he has are two white hind low
pasterns. There are no signs this colt will turn grey - in fact, he is the identical
colour his full sister was born back in 2017 and she was tested to not have any grey
Montero’s sire, Hercules G, is a 16.0hh homozygous black revised PRE Andalusian stallion. Herc carries with him some very distinguished and powerful performance bloodlines that are rare in North America. His bloodlines are not only rare for any pure Spanish horse in North America, but his lines are extremely rare for a Spanish horse that is BLACK. Read more about Herc on .
Montero’s dam, Marquesa del Bosque, is a beautiful, talented, and exceptionally well-bred PRE Andalusian mare. ‘Diva’ is full-bodied with lots of substance, classic Spanish characteristics, great bone, and fantastic bloodlines via the renowned and acclaimed international champion, Indiano XVIII, a Nobleza del Guadiana branded stallion imported from Spain, and also through Diva’s dam, Magdalena SF, an almost pure Cartuja/Bocado bred mare. See more info on Diva on her page.
Montero is bred for performance, coming from a long line of athletic and high-performing champion horses, so he will be a fantastic performance candidate based solely on bloodlines alone. He would also make a wonderful addition to, or foundation stallion for, an Iberian breeding program. He should mature to 15.3hh-16.0hh and be a very nice, round, and classic baroque style Andalusian horse at maturity.
Montero comes with his IALHA registration paid for but he is also eligible for registration with lgANCCE and PRE Mundial. Check back regularly for updates and new photos!
