Sunne in Silver
This very typey dapple grey mare dramatically produced an exquisite filly, to the multi-British National Champion Rusleem, in the middle of the Equine Artists Weekend in May 2004. Rusleema has the looks, confidence and movement to follow her sire into the show-ring and beyond - in fact she was sold to a breeder in Australia in 2007!

Sunne combines the best of Crabbet bloodlines - producing a good strong body and limbs - with the delicacy of the Esta Espashan influence, giving her a very pretty head. And she has proved a wonderful brood mare on her first attempt.

Sunne in Silver is in training with Kit Rolfe who achieved great things in 2006 winning a Novice Ridden Championship and reserve overall ridden championship of the show, and in 2007 winning in Affiliated British Dressage against all-comers. Her excellent dressage scores and wins have earned Sunne the coveted AHS Premium Mare status, one of very few mares to have achieved this accolade.

Her successes in 2007 rewarded her with fourth place AHS National Performance Awards scheme, with her rosette presented by the AHS President at the National Championships in July 2008.

Sunne in Silver is 77.28% Crabbet.
