Rhodium has a pedigree to dream of. Olympic Ferro x G.Ramiro Z x Voltaire x Excurs x Courivlle. His mother, grandmother and great-grandmother all did tests with very high averages in jumping. The jury described Rhodium as a very well developed stallion, extremely well modelled who stands perfectly in a rectangle. “Rhodium has a good forehand and front and a strong upperline. His legs have lots of quality. He is a wonderful, honest stallion. Rhodium is always prepared to work. His walk as well as his trot has a great length. He trots with a lot of lightness, rhythm and elasticity in his front and hind legs. When cantering we see the same good results as when trotting. The natural ability of Rhodium to become an excellent dressage horse is enormous.
