1990 Section B Grey Stallion

  2009 Section B Sire of the Year!

A multiple Champion as well as Supreme Champion and Sport Pony Champion, his expressive movement, presence and self-carriage prove why he's a winner both in and out of the show ring! Combined with his great conformation and exceptionally quiet attitude, he's been able to sire top American hunter ponies. For seven consecutive years, Picasso has been listed on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sires List due to his offsprings success in the hunter ring in the US, which is a feat that's been achieved by a very few Canadian stallions.

Alvesta Picasso
Picasso's first show after only two weeks under saddle

Picasso was just started under saddle in June of 2007 at the age of seventeen. He proved to be as easy to start under saddle as his babies, and is an uncomplicated ride. Eager to please, a quick learner, wonderful gaits to sit and currently goes in a rubber snaffle. After only two weeks under saddle, he attended his first show and proved his outstanding and patient temperament during pouring rain, a tractor pull taking place right next to the show ring and Fair spectators standing along the sidelines with kids, balloons and various animals! His short 2007 under saddle career finished with an Alberta Welsh Year End Award as Reserve Champion Senior Western Pleasure.

Picasso has sired several successful Sport Pony broodmares, whose offspring are just entering the show ring. Many of his babies have been multiple Grand Champions on the line at the Welsh Pony shows. He has consistently stamped his beautiful babies with lovely hunter movement, outstanding jumping form, superior conformation and his exquisite head. He's also consistently sired babies with courage and a willing attitude which has made them easy to start under saddle and progress to the show ring.
