If you are looking to add temperament, rideability and correct gaits to your program, Royal Tourmalet SPF ("Artie") is
your guy! Artie is a perfect example of balanced conformation and power needed in Sport Horse Breeding; and, when
you add in his phenomenal temperament, you will produce performance horses suited for both professionals and
amateurs. Royal Tourmalet SPF's fluid walk, expressive trot, and enormous uphill canter are a pleasure to ride; and,
he is able to extend and collect with ease, and shows early talent for piaffe.
Royal Tourmalet is a stunning stallion, showing great presence and expression with a beautiful soft eye. He sports a
brilliant mahogany bay coat with a bronze metallic sheen; and has four white socks and a blaze. His first foal, Royal
Madeleine CG, is beautifully correct and modern and inherited his incredible temperament and "chrome".
Artie is naturally balanced, both mentally and physically, and has already experienced much success in the
competition arena. In 2015, he was awarded the much-coveted Dr. Robert Miller Memorial Perpetual Trophy as the
Highest Scoring American Bred Stallion at the prestigious Dressage at Devon Breed Show. Royal Tourmalet SPF has
also earned many National, Zone, Regional and Local Year-End Awards; and, was named Top Foal at his 2011 AHS
Judges commented frequently on "the good use of his topline with elasticity and swing" in the walk; his "good energy,
suspension, cadence and ground cover" in the trot; his "modern type and attractive uphill build"; his "good shoulder
and saddle position"; his "strong loin and good bone"; and his "well set neck and well angled hind leg". Perhaps,
though, a highlight was the General Impression score and comment from the incomparable Lisolette Fore. Judge
Fore awarded Artie with 8.3 and commented "Good character. Very calm, but still with good energy". That completely
sums up this wonderful stallion. When winning the Dr. Robert Miller Memorial Perpetual Trophy in 2015, top Breed
Show Judge, Kristi Wysocki's General Impression comment says it all, "Good Breeding Type".
