A true sportsman from top to bottom is how Buckingham presented himself at the 2013 Vechta licensing.
Under saddle he surpassed all expectations and it was no surprise when he became the best dressage horse of his stallion performance test, achieving a breeding value of 154. His three fantastic gaits and constant willingness to perform were rewarded with outstanding grades. Vechta´s incredible disposition also delighted the test riders, earning him a 9,5 for rideability.
This sportiness is of no coincidence. Buckingham´s father Bordeaux was placed 4th at the World Championships of Young Dressage Horses with Eva Möller. The dam´s sire Rousseau, also came second in the Dressage Championships in 2003.
