Algot aka known as Cragganmore is the latest addition to our horses. Algot is a 17 year old Swedish Warmblood imported from Sweden, and was purchased from Holmberg and Wadeborn Dressage. Algot trained with Lars Holmberg and can do high level dressage. Today he is being trained by Amy to become a hunter/jumper. He also enjoys trail rides with his owner Eva. Algot's father was Chapman 757, son of the legendary Chagall by Utrillo. Chapman represented Sweden in the 1994 World Championships in Hague, Netherlands and was Sweden’s most successful horse for many consecutive years. Chapman was champion at his Swedish warmblood stallion performance test. He competed successfully in Grand Prix dressage with a multitude of victories and placements nationally as well as internationally. Chapman had a very elastic gait - his piaffe and passage were considered to be among the best in international competition. As of 2002, at the age of 20, Chapman was still doing Grand Prix movements at shows. These movements have been inherited by Algot who is a fantastic "mover" and has a wonderful temperament.
