Kestrel is a home-bred mare, foaled in 2000, sired by Felix (imported from Norway) out of Roza (imported from Holland). Her dam sire is Fjelljon, born in Norway and standing in Holland where he earned the rank of Elite stallion. There are only two Fjelljon daughters in North America, and the other one (somewhat curiously) is also called Roza.
Our Roza was out of a Bjorgard daughter called Lisa. This is quite an impressive dam line, with Roza’s dam, grand-dam, and great-grand-dam all being ster mares. Bjorgard himself was sired by the great Astrix and out of the Elite mare Sunngard.
Kestrel was trained in dressage with Lori, and shown successfully. At her first show, the National Spring into Dressage at Palgrave, she won a Championship at Training Level, scoring as high as 71.36%.
At the NFHR 25th Anniversary Show in Winona, MN, Kestrel was awarded the Grand Champion Mare title! We are proud of this fine example of our breeding program and we enjoy her immensely.
