Height: 15 hh

Bandit has been shown since he was 11 months old. He has been very well promoted and is very well known throughout North America. He stands just over 15 hands tall, is deep bodied and short coupled, wide-browed, and has excellent angles and great hocks. Bandit’s bloodlines are primarily Henryville, a line known for its docility. We believe he is the only stallion left from Remi and one of the very few proven stallions with that much Henryville in them. He has a willingness to please and an awesome temperament and work ethic. He is a multi-champion, winning several Futurities in both conformation and driving, J.A. Couture 2 yr old Stallion and Sire of Excellence in 2000 & 2001, and his foals have been out doing the same. Bandit is often chosen for mares with longer heads as he shortens the length of head; and for high-spirited mares, as his temperament always comes through on the foals. His offspring are excelling at everything from jumping to combined driving and are located from coast to coast in Canada and the USA. During the J.A. Couture Contest in 1995, the CHBA chose the best horses in the breed and from those who entered the classification; Bandit was the second highest stallion in all of Quebec and Ontario. The trophies and ribbons this horse has won when owned by Cosyland Canadians are impressive!

Bandit’s Progeny:

He had been trained to drive by Randy Bird of Harwood, Ontario, and was trained for collection on a phantom mare. His semen is of excellent quality, and motility post-collection is very impressive – even at age 23 (recently collected and tested at his new home with us in Alberta!). Bandit personifies the Henryville temperament and he still enjoys perfect health and soundness at the age of 23!  We cannot thank Mike Garland enough for finally agreeing to sell this very special stallion to us so that VanRoyal Canadians can proliferate his wonderful bloodlines and temperament in Western Canada and hopefully beyond!  (The photos above of Bandit are from his younger years but we’ll be adding recent photos of Bandit at age 23 soon!)   Stud Fee: $800 CDN – live or AI (frozen or cooled semen).
