Shuper Mario, 2012 Oldeburg Gelding 16.3H 

Shuper Mario by Shakespeare RSF out of EM Fashion Model/Florencio I. Price Range B.

Lovely, sensitive and powerful mover with lots of talent. He offers soft contact with correct, ground covering gaits. He is a gentleman on the ground, stands perfectly still for clipping, the farrier and trailers easily. We have trained him at an appropriate level to allow for his growth spurts and maturity, but he is now catching up quickly with his dressage skills.

Shuper Mario's father Shakespeare is a rare stallion in that he competes at the highest levels of dressage. He stands at stud, has sired approved stallions and premium mares, has many premium foals. His offspring are hard to beat for their willing temperaments, expressive gaits and beauty.  Shakespeare's scores include 9.5 character, 9 temperament, 9.5 trainability, 8.5 trot, 9 canter (8.5 under saddle and 9.5 cross country), 8 walk, 9.5 rideability, 8 free jumping, 8 stadium jumping, 8.5 cross country jumping, 9.25 rideability (test rider). His first foals were born in 2009. Shakespeare's sire, Sandro Hit, needs no introduction. Sandro Hit was the 1999 World Young Horse Champion, and the 1999 Federal Champion.
