What a beauty this filly has grown up to be!  She is quite the picture of elegance and grace.

Chianti's mom, All Hands Splash, ('Thelma'), is a daughter of All Hands On Zip and out of our show mare Classic Splash. Thelma's show career was cut short due to lameness, but she showed great promise in the HUS classes while she was showing.

Chianti's sire, Lads Strawman, was very successful in the show ring, winning big in Hunter In Hand.  He is now starting to make a name for himself as a sire, producing a number of successful babies, including a World Champion in Hunter Under Saddle.

Chianti is bred to perform, with some of the top performance bloodlines in the industry -- she should be an outstanding all-around prospect and excel in Hunter Under Saddle. She loves to jog along and can extend into a sweepy gorgeous trot.  She has long straight legs, a dainty little head, slim neck and nice coloring -- she is quite lovely.

She will be eligible for the $7500 paid out in 2007 to 2 Year Old HUS or WP class!
