Arena Maestro, Pure Cleveland Bay Stallion
Arena Maestro is a pure Cleveland Bay stallion foaled in 2013 in the United Kingdom. Maestro currently stands at 16hh and has 9" of bone. Maestro is bay with a small white star. Maestro is registered with the Cleveland Bay Horse Society and was awarded a license for breeding in 2016. 2016 was Maestro's first breeding season and his first foals were put on the ground in the spring of 2017 (two are currently listed for sale on this website). His studbook number is 2828.
Jason imported Maestro as a yearling in late 2014. Maestro's sire is Laughton Saladin (b. 1984) who was by Signalman out of Knaresborough Dear Me. Maestro's dam is Knaresborough Moondust (b. 2007) who was by Whitehouse Trooper and out of Knaresborough Moonbeam. Moondust is a highly decorated Cleveland mare and has taken top awards at many UK shows. Maestro was shown extensively in the UK as a weanling and yearling and has a number of first place awards to his credit.
Arena Maestro has been handled regularly and was longlined, saddled and lightly ridden as a 3 year old. As a 4 year old, Maestro had the year off from breeding and was started in harness. Jason hopes for Maestro to be actively ridden and worked in harness in the years to come. Maestro's strengths are an even temperament and lovely movement.
Maestro is available for breeding pure, part-bred, and non-Cleveland mares at Bella Vista's discretion. Maestro was taught to breed both AI and live cover in 2016, and had semen frozen and stored to ensure his genes could influence the breed for years to come. While some breeding terms are negotiable, ALL progeny of Maestro are required to be registered with CBHS.
