Starnberg is the most glorious type with seriously correct conformation. He is a licensed stallion, having passed the Westphalian 30 day test in Germany.
Starnberg has a very soft and round way of going. His walk has a deliberate march rhythm, which is so steady that it is unflappable. The trot is simply mesmerising with a wonderful, metronome-like swing and rhythm. He has a natural moment of suspension and is very beautiful with the bend in his knees and hocks. The canter is magically up in front, is very round and very soft.
Starnberg has a natural affiliation with collection and although the canter is very bouyant, he is already able to produce a short canter conducive to canter pirouettes and the most collected Grand Prix movements. Already he has the most expressive flying changes ever and Pamela is currently schooling both Starnberg and herself through the tempi-changeswhich is beautiful to watch. All the while he is ever so light and steady in the rein contact and naturally maintains a very steady head carriage.
Starnberg has been competing since mid-2010 and we are all absolutely delighted with him. Starnberg does have the most amazing temperament, and is a magnificent individual in lots and lots of ways.
