Solaris Buenno is a valuable addition to the world of warmblood and sport horse breeding.

Buenno, has inherited the qualities of both sire and dam, elasticity of gaits, a free shoulder and quick active engaging hind leg but regrettably suffered an injury as a yearling severing his hind extensor. It has therefore not been possible to follow a showing or ridden career.
For the showing enthusiast his progeny have however achieved tremendous success in the show ring inhand and now under saddle already claiming some of the most prestigious titles in the country show ring.
Solaris Buenno has proven himself as a consistent progenitor of 1st premium, prize winning and In Hand Champions at the most prestigious county level shows throughout the UK. They inherit an abundance of presence and elevation to their paces with designer coats as a bonus. They are powerful, supple and have very straight movement with strong well developed top line whose limbs are free from conformation defects, hence their success in the show ring. Despite Buenno's small height his progeny are all taller than their dams.
