The Justiciero line is one of the few Terry lines to make it to the International levels of competition. It’s no wonder.



A full brother to Aureolo

Aureolo VII

Aureolo's sire

This is our famous Costosa, daughter of the Olympic dressage Andalusian Aureolo VII. This mare has such perfect movement it's stunning to watch. All the elevation and lift of a correct Spanish horse yet with extension and suspension that will make your jaw drop.

An athlete from the second she was born this filly could do pirouettes and clean tempi changes from one day old. She can also coil and spring into airs above the ground with such power it's staggering. She has the intelligence; character and drive that made her sire the International horse he was.

Costosa is our alpha super mare in charge of the whole broodmare band. Her sire gave her drive and energy while her dam imparted her responsiveness and modest manner. Costosa’s extraordinary gaits have earned her a reputation far and wide. I meet people all the time who know of “that grey mare” without ever having seen her.

One of the very few Aureolo offspring in the country makes her a rare and precious asset to our breeding program. Her exceptional reach and extreme range of motion comes from her loose and flexible shoulder. Her front legs are not thrown out with no control but deliberately extended and retracted with power. It’s this huge range of motion and articulation in her joints that give Costosa that something extra.

With her sharp mind, Costosa is often bored at shows. Trotting about in hand is not hard enough work for her so most behind the scenes pictures at shows are of Costosa fast asleep. Horses can be loose galloping about warm up, stallions rearing and plunging, and there’s Costosa with her hip cocked tuning it all out until she’s needed. It is actually great for her foals since they have the emotional rock of mom to hide behind in the busy environment of a show. Costosa turns it on just long enough to pull out her big trot, then falls back asleep. She has made many a person do a double take as this plain grey horse that they walked right by without noticing, suddenly moves off and heads just spin around to watch her.

When looking for movement, look for “that grey mare”.



 


 

 

 

Costosa is a heterozygous grey mare meaning she will throw grey 50% of the time. Under the grey she is homozygous bay EEAA.
