Striking Lights R is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.  A beautiful bright bay mare who has the looks, temperament & trainability to take a rider of any level to the top. Strike started her career as an eventer and won up to and including pre-novice classes, beginning her dressage career in 2009 at the NSW Dressage Championships where she placed 1st and 2nd in the novice class.  Strike now competes in young rider and open FEI competitions with Rebecca Notley in the saddle, winning her very first Prix St Georges start scoring 65%.

Strike is by perhaps the most influential performance stallion in Australia today, Salute.  Salute is the sire of Victory Salute (who came 9th in the world in Grand Prix dressage at the 2010 WEG), Stirling Stilton (highest-scoring GP dressage horse at the WEG 2002 in Spain), DP Christopher (who was the NSW GP Dressage Champion), Staccato (number one ranked stallion in the world for eventing a few years ago), F1 Pharanelli (only just missed out on the Olympic eventing team for London), Mystery Whisper (is out of a Salute mare and competed at the 2012 London Olympics) and the list goes on and on. She is also a full sister to Sydney Lights who was a sensational eventer in Australia and then sold overseas.

Strike is training piaffe and one-time changes and will go on to do Grand Prix so now is the time to purchase an exceptional mare who is ready to take you on a truly wonderful journey.
