About Orlando Country

The Story Of "Orlando"

 

 

 

The legendary ‘Orlando’ has a story all of his own.

Born at Springston in the South Island to ‘Miltondale Ebony’ by Akanar,
whose breeding dates back to New Zealands’ first imported
Arabian Stallion ‘Silver Sparkle’.

 

Orlando was brought to the North Island as a 3 year old and soon
after began his career as a show pony.

 

This was the beginning of a career that can only be described as incredible.

His showcasing career was to span two decades during which time he not only won
hundreds of championships in the show ring but equally as many over jumps.

 

“Orlando” inspired not only those who competed on him, but those who competed against
him and although now retired from competition is an integral part of Orlando Country.
