Nicks & Breeding Recommendations


Visionaire by Grand Slam

The One-Eyed Man is ‘King in the land of the blind,’ they say.
But even a blind man could see the Visionaires coming.

Visionaire is a burly 16.2hh chestnut, powerfully developed in the shoulder and quarter. He stands over ground, is well balanced with great bone and limbs, and has a masculine intelligent head and good eye. He will add plenty of range and athleticism to his progeny.

Our panel of experts are able to provide a formal mating recommendation for all of Summerhill's resident stallions, embracing an evaluation of the physical compatibility of your mare with the stallion of your choice, an appraisal of relevant elements such as soundness, durability, speed, stamina, athleticism, temperament and courage a record of duplicated ancestors (and where applicable the reasons for duplicating) and the prospective matings aptitude profile.

Should you wish to avail yourself of this comprehensive service, please contact Stallion Bookings Manager, Linda Norval.
