His genesis was in the legends of *Padron, Padrons Psyche and Magnum Psyche. Stamped by the sensation that is WH Justice, he is true exotic type from head to tail. He is *LA Karát.
His story begins in Switzerland, travels across Europe to Italy and then over an ocean to the United States. Undefeated in Europe, Karát’s show career was highlighted at the prestigious Menton show in France where he received maximum scores of 20 in movement and type from all judges, winning “Most Classic Head” of the show.
The attention Karát commanded in Europe soon found its way to the United States. Whispers began of a brilliant grey WH Justice son in Italy who was not only exotic, but also correct and balanced…and perhaps available. Travis and Stephanie Hansen heard the whispers and were soon on their way to Italy to investigate this grey Justice son.
At a farm just outside of Bologna, Italy, the morning’s air was suddenly pierced by the single, loud call of a horse – then another call and the sounds of hooves dancing in the gravel. Travis and Stephanie watched silently: the big black eyes, the broad forehead and the refined muzzle, the arched poll and neck, the angle of the shoulder, the short back and long hip and croup, the straight legs and solid feet – all punctuated with exceptional tail carriage and bold trot. In an instant the Hansens whipered: “We need him.” It was an easy decision. Karát would soon become a U.S. citizen.
Karát echoes the strength of his world-class pedigree with horses like *Padron, *El Shaklan, Kubinec, *Salon, Shaikh Al Badi, *Ansata Ibn Halima, Plakat and Aswan. Yet, it is Karát’s own exotic type, his extreme style and his correctness that capture imaginations and persuade breeders to book their mares to him. And, it is Karát’s undeniable quality that motivated 15 astute breeders to leap at the opportunity to become part of Karát, forming the Partnership for *LA Karát.
His offspring now call the world their home, with sons and daughters in the U.S., Europe, and in far away places like Qatar, Abu Dahbi, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and more. In Karát is the expression of his heritage, the imagination of the Bedouins and the promise of undeniable exotic. Join us for the next generation.
