Sula Blue will be combining stud duties with competing in British Eventing, In his career to date, he has proven to be one of the most consistent horses in the country up to FEI 3* level, easily qualifying for the british open championships in both 2016 and 2017 and gaining his 4* qualification at Bramham International Horse Trials, in 2018 he will be partnering an up and coming young rider aiming for the junior teams, we feel this proves his amazing temperament and trainability


2016 saw him step up to  3* and advanced level completing the tough 3* XC courses at both Belton and Blenhiem in super fast times and also producing some of the very rare clear SJ rounds at 3* level on numerous occasions, Sula Blue excels across the country, delivering bold clear rounds throughout the 2016 season. His athleticism allows him to achieve the increasingly necessary speed in this phase, while his elegance and eye-catching carriage make him a regular judge’s favourite in the dressage arena.


He has briefly competed at British Dressage, amassing 37 BD points in only a few outings, and has hunted regularly. We have taken care to produce him slowly and carefully, resulting in his extremely willing attitude and his remarkable focus when at competitions.


He truly is a unique stallion being the only full TB stallion currently competing at top level, he will be competing at advanced and 3* level in 2017 and is now a grade 1 elite eventing stallion and also the highest ranked TB stallion currently competing


Sula Blue is an absolutely genuine horse with a wonderful temperament combining both an eager attitude to work with a kind nature. His movement is both correct and expressive on the flat, he is both careful and scopey in the SJ arena and he has plenty of scope to continue up the levels as his career advances. His response to every challenge he has faced so far in the competition arena has been a consistent stepping-up of his performance level, signifying that above all Sula Blue is extremely trainable


We feel he will suit a wide variety of mares, and believe he gives breeders a unique opportunity to inject good old fashioned national hunt blood into their breeding plans,

true national hunt breeding is quite rare to find in modern breeding but is necessary for the speed and stamina required in a top event horse,

He is the only full TB stallion currently competing with advanced points

British breeders are always looking for a quality TB stallion as this has been the foundation of event breeding for many generations, the heritage of the british event horse comes from a long line of great TB stallions, Sula Blue has many of these in his pedigree with the advantage that he is also proven in the sport himself at a high level.

The warmblood breed societies often use good TB stallions in their breeding programs to add refinement and stamina, this makes Sula Blue a great choice for the future of british breeding

his sire Sula Bula was a tough and consistent racehorse, winning under all three codes of racing and retiring sound to enjoy life on the hunting field,

his maternal grandsire Ascertain was a H.I.S premium stallion, a sire of numerous show hunters and event horses, he was known to produce clean limbed stock with good movement and excellent temperaments and a good work ethic,

we feel these qualities are a huge part of Sula Blues success in his career and are the qualities he in turn passes on to his progeny, 

His eldest progeny from only a few mares covered in his early years of covering won at BE100 level last season at only her 3rd event finishing on her dressage score of 21, she didnt finish out of the top 10 all year
