Sadly Living Legend REMINGTON STEELE *++ died in February 2007 at the age of 25 after a most illustrious career in the USA. Our condolances to his devoted owner and rider Patti Bailey.

The * meant he was a licensed Sport Horse Premium stallion with Distinction of Merit - with over 20 licensed Sport Horse offspring - and the ++ meant he had earned Supreme Legion of Merit both in hand and under saddle.

Fortunately, for the first time in Britain, frozen semen (with 100% fertility to date) from this supremely talented, athletic, intelligent yet gentle horse is now available to mares of all breeds through Gadebrook AI Services.

All Rem's 2006 Arab mares got in foal by frozen semen, including AHS Premium Jazmyn, race mare Sambel, and endurance mare Vlacq Uraloki. British 2006 WAHO winner Franzara is booked to Rem for 2008.

Rem reigned supreme in so many fields - multi-US and Canadian National Top Ten In-Hand Champion, Ridden Championships in English, Western and Costume, wins in harness, 100-miles Endurance champion and sire over 200 foals now competing successfully in all spheres of equine activity. Most famously he was a Tevis Trail Buckle winner over the toughest 100-miles-in-a-day endurance test in the Sierra Nevadas. Remington Steele*++ was chosen by Kentucky Horse Park Hall of Fame to represent the epitome of the Arabian breed in their "Horses of the World" exhibit.

  He starred in a movie, saved his rider from attack by a mountain lion, won Top Ten in-hand at premier Arabian show in Scottsdale twice - at age 4 and age 16, completed the 150-miles in three Days in Death Valley ride at 18, then proudly drove his owner's daughter to her wedding in a smart carriage at the age of 20.

His legacy lives on in America and overseas with highly successful performance sons and daughters on four continents.
