Silver Twist is an 11 year old Trakehner stallion by Abdullah. His dam is Star News, a daughter of Good Twist xx.
This horse combines the best of American jumping bloodlines. However, an eye injury as a foal kept him from being a performance horse.
He was approved as a breeding stallion by the American Warmblood Registry in 2005.
He's a beautiful grey stallion, with looks, movement and blood lines that are world class. He stands 16.2 HH and has several test foals on the ground. Two of them, Tigger and Silver Wonder, are also for sale.
