He has captured judges attention in the show ring with numerous led in class accolades, and is sure to add ridden achievements to his resume in the future. PDC Ernesto has several promising young horses on the ground, who have excellent temperaments and conformation, and who will enter the competition arena in the near future.
Separately and together, these two stallions both In hand and under saddle achieved many accolades and captured the hearts and minds of so many. They also did much to promote and genetically improve the Andalusian breed within Australia.
Their hoofbeats may have faded from this world, but their legacy and memory live on in their numerous offspring.

As my candle, burning bright.
Sends shadows off in this dark night
It offers peace and hope and love
To the horses dancing up above
My prayers and thoughts will help them find
Beloved friends they left behind
So they may comfort us in turn
Ans thus it is my candle burns
With quiet tears, lovingly shed
I hear the horses overhead
Their pounding hooves are thunder stirred
For another friend has joined the herd.
