Five time USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year
Royal Prince was Reserve Champion at both his 30- and 70-Day Performance Tests, earning 10’s for rideability and walk, and 9’s for trot, canter, and willingness to work. As a five-year-old, he won the East Coast Selection Trials for the World Championships for Young Horses with an unprecedented score of 9.82 and finished in fourth place at the World Championships, the highest American finish to date. Royal Prince won the BLM Third Level Reserve Championship. In 2009, they were ranked fourth for the AHS Hanoverian USDF All-Breeds Awards. Royal Prince showed successfully through Prix St. Georges.
Royal Prince’s sire, Rohdiamant, was a highly successful Grand Prix dressage competitor who was short-listed for the U.S. Olympic Team with Lisa Wilcox. Grandsire Rubinstein I also competed at the Grand Prix Level and is known for the excellent rideability of his offspring. Royal Prince’s dam, Piri Piri, is by the influential Thoroughbred stallion Prince Thatch xx. Piccolino, by Prince Thatch, helped secure the Team Gold for Germany at the 2003 European Dressage Championships and placed sixth individually.
