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.
Legend has proven to be a very polite stallion - one that we can take anywhere to compete or to visit with other horses on trails. Everyone remarks at how well mannered he is and how handsome as well! Photographers love him also - he is quite photogenic! He has incredible low heart rates, great hooves - no shoes needed to-date with all the training and competing and excellent conformation.
2011 we did what we set our plans to be - Winning OCTRA's PROVINCIAL CTR in the OPEN divisioin and CMA's CANADIAN NATIONAL MORAB Champion and High Point as well. In our Endurance endeavours we have maintained a TOP TEN ranking in the 50 Mile Endurance each time climbing one position higher with each race.
2012 Legend had a phenominal year:
July 14th - 80 km Endurance - 3rd - 5:38:26
Sept 1st - FEI 120 kms - 3rd place - 9:41:40
Dec 13, 2013 Qualified for NAETC - Florida - FEI 160 kms race. Finished 3/6 loops but experienced metabolic issues and had to pull out of the race 1/2 way.
2014 & On will be adding the additional competitive status shortly.
Legend is living a healty life / semi-retired as of 2015 - enjoying life @ Bainsville, Ontario.
