A formerly dappled grey Swedish Warmblood, now aging out to a flea bitten gray, Oncore is out of the Swedish Warmblood mare Elektra (by Elctron 469) by Guardian (by Rampal). (Elektron 469, a Swedish Warmblood stallion born at the Flynge State Stud 1968. He was later exported to Germany where he won the Hamburg Derby, one of the toughest jumping competitions in Europe, in 1980. His get, Elektron was imported to the US, where he (Elektron) went on to place second in the USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year rankings in 1983. Elektron was long-listed for the 1984 Olympic Games in dressage. These international level wins placed Electron among an elite grouping of stallions successful at both FEI jumping and dressage.) Oncore was named for the Dutch Warmblood Society. They name with the letter of the alphabet. He has a full brother named Poet, somewhere out there, and although he is half Swedish Warmblood and Half Dutch Warmblood, Oncore is registered with the Swedish Warmblood Society.
Oncore made the trek from Wisconson to California then to finally home to Florida when he was 7 years old. Known as the big comfy couch, he has beautiful gaits and is a cool to ride. He has a spiky, sparse black & white mane and a swishy black and grey tail. He will strengthen your arms and shoulders not only in the ring and on the trail, but also because he makes you hold every pound of his weight when you are checking his feet (sometimes). He is big and kind and a little goofy (sometimes doesn’t realize he is a big ole’ horse). He loves all kinds of treats, and sometimes can be pushy if you have food, but if you remind him of his “manners” he will behave. He is supple, which comes in handy on the trail as he bends swiftly through the trees, stopping occasionally to savor a tasty bit of Spanish moss. He started his life as a dressage horse then began jumping and now pretty much does it all with a flourish. He is the Serena Williams of the dressage ring, grunting with every movement. He is a natural jumper, and loves it! He is a relaxed trail horse, and a graceful mover in the dressage ring. He loves to play with Walleigh and the sight of the two of them rearing up, their manes blowing in the wind, conjures up images of wild mustangs on the plains.
