(Master x Miss Nickle Annie*)

  • 8-1-00, 16.2 hand, dark bay (almost black) stallion
  • Approved Swedish and ISR/Oldenburg
  • 2010 SWANA HOY both 1st & 2nd Level, 2nd at 3rd level
  • 2009 Highest median score ever given in USDF Dressage Sporthorse Breeding: 87.250%
  • SWANA inspectors recommend his semen for shipping to Sweden
  • All SWANA scores between 7 and 9
  • Reserve Champion at 2004 Stallion Short Test
  • 2009 USDF Champion Mature Stallion
  • 2007 USDF Reserve Champion Mature Stallion
  • Sire of three stallions certified by ISR/Oldenburg
  • Of foals we have bred and presented to ISR/Oldenburg and SWANA, all but one have been premium/Class1

Although a stall injury limited his showing, he has won at DAD, earned many high-score-of-show awards through 3rd level, had both in hand and under saddle scores in the high 80s, and received several perfect 10s on his walk. 

Like his sire, Masterpiece has simple, supple lateral ability.  He has a natural piaffe and passage, and his walk is huge yet collectible.  He is elastic and comfortable enough for anyone to sit in all gaits.  (Like all our Little Bit Farm stallions, he has been used in our lesson program.)  He has beautiful type and color, almost black, with a perfect length of back and leg.  In addition to his talent for dressage, Masterpiece has won in rated hunters.  One of the Olympic riders at his stallion test said he would be a perfect hunter if he continued on that path.

All Masterpiece offpspring have been sold, either in utero or before the age of one, except the two-year-old Premium Oldenburg, Mona Lisa (Masterpiece / Hohenstein), who produced a Class I SWANA colt by Rashka, Recess, who is a multiple USDF HOY winner and  2014 US National Training Level Open Champion, with rider Kari Schmidt.
