Wimborne Flirtatious

16.1hh Brown Australian Warmblood
Sire: Flamboyant  Dam : Christadorf (Ludendorf/Wesuw)

Wimborne Flirtatious (aka Kyra) is a full sister to both stallion Remembrance Day and Wimborne Paris. She is a very calm, kind mare. She is a compact, fine, well conformed mare who has 3 good paces with a particularly good canter. We expect that she will cross very well with Contenda producing progeny that are 1/3 thoroughbred and 2/3 warmblood and hence be ideal for eventing. Kyra is also blessed with a beautiful head and looks that would just as easily see her in the showring as on the eventing arena.

Sire Line
Flamboyant (Scarlet Septre)
16.1hh Thoroughbred stallion

Flamboyant was an outstanding thoroughbred that combined exquisite beauty and elegance with huge, elevated, elastic, warmblood like movement. He had a calm kind nature that was passed on to his progeny.

Flamboyant won South Australian Novice dressage Horse of the Year under Heather Currie before being purchased by Susannah McGarrity and Derek Pether and starting a highly successful career in the showring. This culminated in being awarded Supreme Champion Thoroughbred Exhibit out of a field of hundreds of horses at the 1999 Royal Easter Show.

In a breeding career cut tragically short, Flamboyant has produced many horses of superior quality. After only 6 seasons at stud Flamboyant is the sire of numerous top level showhorses and hacks such as Alkyra Enchanted, Alykra Flamboyance, Alkyra Elegance. His progeny have won or highly placed in the Thoroughbred classes at Sydney Royal for every year that he stood at stud. His progeny have taken out championships at Royal and national level in the ASH, ANSA, Hack, Galloway, Arabian derivative, Warmblood and of course Thoroughbred rings. His progeny are renowned for their elegance, wonderful temperaments and amazing movement.
