Oros-L is a fairly new private stud set up by founders of Troika. Its purpose is to breed superb competition horses, mostly Trakehners, for home and international markets. Although fairly young, the stud has made a reputation as a center of excellence. The Russian Trakehner Association awarded the stud the status of the North-Western center of Trakehner breeding in Russia.
Oros has an Arabian
stud in Kuban, with its the dry climate and calcium-rich steppe
soil. It is an ideal place to breed horses. Nevertheless, it was decided to
locate the Trakehner stud in North-West Russia, 200 km away from Moscow, in
order to produce horses that could fare perfectly in the rigors of northern
climates. One reason was that most of Russian equestrian activities are in
Central and Northern Russia, notably Moscow and St. Petersburg.
The studs foundation stock has been hand-picked for performance, conformation, and soundness. Among the sires are Glad and Astemur, superb Thoroughbred eventing horses of international renown.
Schooling and training
Young horses are being schooled with extreme
caution, in the best traditions of Russian horsemanship that preached patience
and perseverance with horses. The trainers try not to exert excessive pressure
on young horses in order to protect their nervous system, and to produce
individuals with courage, mild disposition, and excellent jumping performance.
