Introducing Bingotti, a 2010 stallion who has just earned his Hanoverian license/approval through performance and live inspection.

Bingotti is a chestnut stallion who offers solid dressage bloodlines with that desirable dash of jumper blood: he is by Bugatti Hilltop, out of a mare by Krack C, whose dam was solidly jumper-bred.

He attended the Hanoverian inspection at Morven Park, Leesburg, Virginia on October 12, with judges George Walker (Middlefield Farm, SC), Cathy Tucker-Slaterbeck (MD), and Suzanne Quarles (Some Day Soon Farm, MD). The inspection is hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Hanoverian Breeders.

Bingotti's owner and breeder, Kathleen Swalwell of Three Fillies Farm, Michigan, was pleased to receive positive and encouraging comments from the judges.

"Suzanne Quarles was especially impressed with his temperament, rideability and overall behavior - while surrounded by mares and babies. She said there are lots of great stallions out there, but not all have his temperament and agreeable attitude. She found his trot work super solid, 'like a metronome'.

"George Walker also commented on his readability and told me I need to breed more just like him! Not to mentioned his presence, and his wonderful, uphill trot and canter."

The post-inspection wrap-up report written by Dennis Moore, president of the MAHB, gave this description:

"A highlight of the day was the chance to see the newly licensed, beautiful, deep cinnamon-colored, 2010 Hanoverian stallion, Bingotti. He already had racked up excellent dressage scores at the Prix St. Georges level, but he had not previously been presented for approval of his conformation and basic gaits. ... Although scores for stallions are not announced, to my eyes he exhibited great presence, excellent temperament and rideability (particularly surrounded by so many mares), rhythmic, uphill movement in both trot and canter, and an excellent walk."

Stallion Grand Champion, Bingotti at Devon 2018
Bingotti has been demonstrating his own abilities through competition from the beginning, starting as a yearling, and currently competing successfully at Prix St. Georges. He also wowed the judges at the Dressage at Devon breed classes in 2018. He won the big one - Stallion Grand Champion - after setting the stage by earning first place with 83.8% in Four-Year-Old and Older Stallions; he was Mature Horse Grand Champion, and won the Born in the USA Championship.

Bingotti was not only born in the USA, but bred in the USA, by his owner, Kathleen Ann Robb Swalwell, and her husband Don, of Three Fillies Farm in Michigan.

The first foals by Bingotti are expected in 2021. Bingotti is available with high-quality frozen semen.
