Ralando II is an imported Holsteiner stallion. A direct son of legendary Ramiro Z, his full pedigree is Ramiro-Calando-Romino, stamm 741. Now that he has been retired from competition, Ralando II will be available for breeding.
Ralando II competed in Germany as a young horse up to 1.3m. He was imported by Eduardo Braun as a seven year old and competed up to the Grand Prix level on the east and west coasts before becoming a schoolmaster for an adult amateur. In 2010, a change of ownership meant a change of discipline as Ralando II transitioned to the hunter world with amateur rider (now turned professional), Arly Golombek. The pair amassed top placings and championships as both a Regular Working and A/O Hunter at elite A-Circuit shows including WEF, Kentucky Spring & Summer shows, the Kentucky National, Capital Challenge, Pennsylvania National and the National Horse Show. A testament to his rideability and generous disposition is the fact that before retiring from competition, Ralando II was competing & winning in the Adult Amateur divisions with students of Arly's.
