With over 20 years of breeding warmbloods our two foundation sires Voltaire ll and Ramirez have now retired or passed on but these powerful bloodlines remain in the mare herd and coupled with the success of Kinnordy Gym Bello’s blood and now Astek Quatermaster’s modern attributes, the depth and quality has quadrupled!
With an emphasis on using only top quality mares, the success of Astek bred stock is astounding and set to only improve as SWE Dempsey by Damsey out of top mare Neverspelde Suraya comes on stream as a future sire in 2018.
As the Astek family grows with top riders countrywide continuing to choose the bloodlines for their trainability and athletic abilities a synergy of enthusiasm is building as riders are proud to sport the Astek name.
