This gray colt by Violino (SS) boasts good conformation and superior movement. His gaits are very elastic with much impulsion, driven by powerful hindquarters. These characteristics are a reflection of great potential power to collect, making Habil do Vouga an excellent sporthorse prospect.
Hábil do Vouga comes from a bloodline that has been winning many of the colt classes in Brazil and Portugal over the last three years. The line—that of Violino (SS), Ofensor’s most winning offspring – boasts three championships in a row in Portugal. Violino (SS) is currently standing in Portugal as he is in great demand by the local breeders, and continues to assert himself as a producer of champions. Among his victorious offspring are several of Gold Medalists, foremost being Excelente do Vouga, Great Champion junior mare in 2011; and Forever do Vouga, Grand Champion junior stallion in 2012. These are two of the most valued titles in the International Expositions. In 2011, Violino (SS) was the winner of the Sire Progeny Class at the XXX Brazilian International Lusitano Horse Show after an impressive showing a three-year-old colt and 2 two-year-old fillies. Oferta, Hábil’s dam, was imported from Portugal, and is of Coimbra stock. Oferta produced Alteza do Mito and Capaz do Mito, who was exported to the USA.
