Good news for breeders! Through Embriovet-Prestação de Serviços Veterinários Lda , Frozen Semen of the much sought-after stallion Dragão das Figueiras is now directly available to breeders in Portugal. “We wanted to make it as easy and convenient as possible for breeders to have their mares inseminated by our Dragão. Accordingly, we are happy about the cooperation with Dr. Miguel Bliebernicht from Embriovet,” explains Patrice Mourruau, the owner of the majestic grey stallion, who is not only one of the most successful Lusitanos ever, but was also the first representative of his breed to be approved for warmblood horse breeding.
Ridden by Sascha Schulz/LUX, Dragão das Figueiras won the World Cup Qualifier in Mariakalnok/HUN, won the Grand Prix Freestyle at the CDI4* in Leudelange/LUX, took second place in the World Cup Qualifier in Brno/CZE and in the Grand Prix Freestyle at the CHIO Aachen and finished third in the Grand Prix at the CDI4* in Munich. The pair also successfully took part in the European Championships in Rotterdam/NED.
Dragão das Figueiras, (Único x Valéria por Xaquiro), is a highly valuable stallion who passes on his opulence of movement and his enormous willingness to perform to his offspring. His son Nobre do Saramunheiro, for example, won the 2021 Lusitano Championships for four-year-olds with over 84 percent and was previously victorious at the Portuguese Championships, receiving a 10 for his walk. The Dragão das Figueiras daughter Odalisca received a gold medal. Other offspring of Dragão das Figueiras are also starting extremely promising in the sport.
