Puccini is a beautiful liver chestnut stallion with three superb gaits and an incredible temperament and work ethic.
Puccini has an impressive show record in the US and Europe. Even with such an impressive show record, what stands out the most when meeting Puccini in person is his incredible temperament, which, along with his gaits and talent, he passes on to his foals.
Sadly, his competition career was cut short due to an unfortunate stabling accident, and it wasn’t until then that his breeding career started. With limited foals on the ground at this time, the oldest being born late in 2010, it is already clear that he is passing on his fabulous temperament as the majority of his foals have been raised and some even trained under saddle by their amateur owners.
