In Loving Memory
Ulanka - 2007 CWHBA mare
Urybaldi Ch x Kalinka Du Moulin / Kajak Du Moulin
This mare was an absolute joy to work with, she had a great work ethic, quick to catch on, and was always a joy to ride! She had been in very intense situations and shined! Whether it was at home, in a clinic or in the ring, Ulanka was an eye catching, athletic mare with talent for dressage or over fences! She was Reserve Champion yearling at the Alberta North CWHBA Show in 2007 and earned her premium status in 2014 as well as placing 1st in the Riding Horse Test. Ulanka had shown an aptitude for learning quickly and her pleasant personality that made her a joy to work with. Ulanka left us with a beautiful gift, our 2017 filly D'Vorah SBF by Dresden. Diva is sure to follow in her mother's foot steps.
Ulanka's sire is Urybaldi CH who was imported from Switzerland where he earned his approval and a place in the Swiss State Stud. His superior bloodlines include Furioso (sire of Surioso, a famous French sire), Alme Z (sire of Galoubet A, I Love You and Jalisco B) and Nepal.
His sire Urymate de Ste. Hermelle, competed internationally in show jumping to CSIO level successfully. He's a producer of many well-recognized progeny in jumping and dressage, most famous, Urion II - successful at CSIO Posnan 2000. Urybaldi's dam, Atremis, is an Elite Mare at the Swiss State Stud.
Urybaldi's first year of competition was 1995 and he was brilliant. A consistent top 5 finisher at the Spruce Meadows 4/5 year old Jumper division, winner of the year end award for Alberta 4/5 year old jumpers, top 3 finish at Thunderbird Modified Amateur Classic and the year end Champion of the CWHBA Alberta Chapter 5/6 year old Jumper Champion.
Urybaldi CH is a powerful stallion both genetically and physically. His temperament and work ethic is exceptional and these facts are evident in his offspring.
