Born April 2000 in Riviere Qui Barre, Alberta at Excalibur Ranch Breeder and founder of Morab Canada ~ Catherine McLeod.
EXCALIBUR LEGEND CMA#1036 - 1st Generation Morab Stallion PART ARAB #IA04664
Morgan Sire: Wachuset Cadence X Arab Dam: Abby Road (Lippitt Morgan X Bask Arab bloodlines)
Legend was purchased by Monica Grundmann in 2005 and transported from Alberta to St-Lazare, QC of the same year. He was chosen based on his temperament, conformation, heart rate in order to compete in CTR/Endurance. He was chosen to be kept as a stallion to preserve the reproduction quality of MORABS, Sport horse/pony or partbreds.
Started Dressage training but was bought to do Competitive Trail and/or Endurance. Underwent training and development for 3 years. He was shown to Level 1 Dressage but has training in Level 2 movements.
In 2008 our equestrian facility in St-Lazare, QC was sold and we relocated Silhouette Stables to Bainsville, Ontario. We chose to move to Ontario to be closer to the OCTRA riding competitions, to produce our own hay and to further our Morab Breeding.
Legend is a 1st Generation Morab Platinum Level CMA Awarded Breeding Stallion. He has Lippitt Morgan bloodlines as well as the well known Bask line.
