Britannia Royal, by the Oldenburg stallion Royaldik, is an Advanced event stallion, son of the legendary elite 5* mare Headley Britannia (Brit), winner of Badminton, Burghley, Kentucky and a team Olympic silver medal.
This talented stallion has superb world-class bloodlines for eventing on both sides of his pedigree: in addition to the bloodlines from his dam Brit (by the renowned stallion Jumbo, sire of Mr Chunky, bronze medal winner at the World Equestrian Games), his sire Royaldik is a son of Herka xx, full sister to Heraldik xx, the WBFSH No.1 Eventing Sire for a decade, and damsire of Michael Jung’s wonderful La Biosthetique-Sam. Heraldik is still very influential today.
Britannia Royal is an elegant, eye-catching, modern blood-type stallion, 70% TB. He is a short-coupled stallion with correct conformation, good feet, rhythmical paces and a quick, bold but careful and athletic jump. His natural speed cross country has enabled him to regularly and comfortably complete within the time allowed as he has progressed up the eventing levels.
In 2022 he became well established at 3* international level AND upgraded to Advanced. Apart from his good looks, he is a charming horse with a lovely calm, trainable temperament and is a pleasure to handle at home, at stud and at competitions, which comfortably enables him combine competing and stud duties. In 2021 he proved what a consistent performer he is, running mainly at 2*/Intermediate level and gaining six top-ten placings from eight runs, with four of these in his five Intermediate runs.
His show jumping has been super careful, and his cross-country rounds have been nothing short of scintillating.
In 2022 he made the step up to 3* international with superb cross-country rounds in all his runs, before upgrading to Advanced with a classy clear show-jumping, one of only a handful in the section.
Britannia Royal’s progeny are already starting to show their quality: his daughter Classictop True Brit has had a fantastic start to her eventing career under international rider Vittoria Panizzon, having been an in-hand winner at County level in Hunter Breeding and Hack/Riding Horse classes; his son Classictop Britannic was Champion Hunter Breeding at the 2019 Kent County Show and is making his mark in dressage.
