The only RID son of Clover Hill in NA. The "Genetic Evaluation of Showjumping Horses in Ireland, 2000" gave Gloster a 110% rating, which is not only the highest reported rating of any RID stallion in NA but also places him in the top 10% of stallions of all breeds in Ireland.
Gloster is the perfect sire for mare owners looking for size, scope, talent and temperament that is consistently reproduced in his offspring. His fabulous movement that he passes on is ideal for the dressage or hunter mare to add length of stride, elegance and balance.
|Gloster has a fantastic temperament and lives daily side by side with all our mares in a working competition environment and is as polite as they come! You can call any of the owners of his offspring and you will hear nothing but how athletic his foals are with easy superb temperaments!|
|Gloster is by Clover Hill RID, one of, if not, the most influential showjumping sires. Clover Hill’s Offspring have made a true impression on the international showjumping world, with 39 making it to the international circuits. The athleticism is second to none. Gloster and the Clover Hill line have proven themselves in the showjumping arena, time and time again.|
|A great number of Gloster’s half brothers, both RID and IDSH compete in the top of the showjumping ranks today with continued success. 19 of the 24 horses eventing in the Olympics this year were of Irish blood!|
