Rendezvous of Genesis

rhondanational Rendezvous of Genesis was born on January 29th, 2010. This exceptional filly is as sweet and personable as she is beautiful. “Rhonda” is the kind of lovable filly that instantly draws a person into the haflinger breed.

Rhonda’s sire, Arno, bears little introduction. This two-time AHR National Champion stallion and 4-time AHR ‘Stallion of the Year’ is one of only two stallions in North America to have achieved “Elite Status” as designated by the AHR Inspection and Classification program.

Rhonda’s dam, Raphael Rose TOF, is an AHR silver classified mare. She is sired by the AHR Gold classified stallion, Aristocrat TOF, and is out of the AHR Gold classified mare, Rivella TOF.

Rhonda is the first offspring from the cross of Arno with Raphael Rose. This cross, which combines on both sides of the pedigree some of the best and most influential haflinger breeding horses in North American history, did not disappoint us.

rhondastretchRhonda started her show career in August 2010 by winning first place in the Great Lakes Haflinger Futurity. She eventually was named “Champion Weanling” at the show. Representing Arno himself, she won the “Stallion Service Invitiational Class” at that same show as well.

At the 2010 AHR National Show in September 2010, Rhonda was the 1st place weanling filly. She willingly showed off her ground-covering walk and her strong, effortless trot for the judge and the spectators.

With several wins already secured, the future looks bright for Rhonda! Look for this outstanding filly to be competing at the AHR National Futurity!
