2000 BAVARIAN 16.3 H BAY SABINO STALLION
Apiro is a son of the legendary Argentinus,
who for an amazing seven years led the FN statistics of his age group for the prize money earned by his progeny with
offspring competing at the international levels in both dressage and jumping. Argentinus was STALLION of the YEAR
in 2005! A successful advanced level showjumper himself, Argentinus sired 28 approved sons, 48 State
Premium mares, and became Germany's youngest millionaire based on money won by his progeny. He was renowned for passing on
his willing temperament to his offspring. His sire, Argentan I, produced 19 approved sons and 119 State Premium
mares and was highly regarded as a broodmare sire. From Absatz, the type and unmistakable face of his sire,
Abglanz, is stamped generation after generation. From Argentinus' damsire, Duden
II, comes the dynamic movements and impulsion of Duellant. Apiro's dam, the State
Premium mare Pyrah H, is a strong producer of sporthorses including the showjumpers Perle,
Pandora, and Power Girl, Rocci Balboa who has been successful in the young
dressage horse classes, and the State Premium mare, Airline. She also produced the approved stallion, River
Phonix, who won the Bavarian Championships and placed in the Bundeschampionat. Pyrah H is by the
exceptional jumper sire, Pilot, who was the first showjumping stallion with progeny to earn one million deutschmarks.
His second dam, Ceda H, is by the Cyklon son, Cyrus. The Hanoverian-based
Trakehner, Cyklon, established a good jumper line and was a superior sporthorse sire.
Apiro's offspring are already having success in the hunter
and jumper rings. He is producing talented, amateur friendly horses and is greatly improving scope in gaits and jump.
