Sea Lion xx
Sea Lion xx is that rare animal: an American Thoroughbred stallion approved and sought-after in Europe. He was approved in 2015 by the American Hanoverian Society and the Hanoverian Verband, and was invited to stand for a year in Germany. The AHS judges believe Sea Lion's score may be the highest ever awarded to a Thoroughbred and he was even sent to Germany for a year for breeding. Sea Lion had already received approved status in 2013 from the ISR/Oldenburg, and the American Trakehner Association in 2014 with scores of mainly 8s and 9s.
Sea Lion was also the only stallion in North America to be included in Tom Reed's short list of thoroughbred stallions that "should be considered for an eventing breeding program." (Tom Reed of Morningside Stud and the Warmblood Studbook of Ireland, from his article, "A Critical Shortage of Blood," published in Horse International, 2015 Volume 3, pp 56 – 57.)
The interest in breeding to Sea Lion has come from several countries, and he now has been bred to mares in Germany, Australia, and Canada, as well as the United States. The oldest of his offspring is the 2013 Seacret Agent. We'd like to share his progress as an international sire by sharing reporting on a few of his offspring.
Qualities to describe this stallion include; charismatic, intelligent, kind, and amazing work ethic. Sea Lion is focused and professional during competition and has been described as a delight to work with.
