“He’s always had all the ability in the world – he’s scopey, he’s powerful, he’s careful. He’s got all the attributes that you want.” – Margie Engle
Margie Engle and Royce are well-known for their winning ways on the international show jumping circuit. Royce is renowned for his powerful scope, careful technique, and huge heart. Margie bought him as a 7yr old after seeing his raw talent in the Grand Prix ring with Liubov Kochetov. Today, Royce is an internationally proven competitor with an extensive and successful show record. He is remarkably consistent with countless top placings at venues such as WEF, Lexington, Spruce Meadows, La Baule, and St. Gallen. In 2018 Royce was USEF Grand Prix Horse of the Year. This incredible achievement further demonstrates his consistency in the ring due to the fact that in 2018 he was on a selective show schedule and still had the highest prize monies won at the end of the year to be awarded this designation.
Royce’s bloodlines boast the presence of Contender (grandsire) and the influential Hanoverian G-line (dam sire). His sire, Cafe au Lait, was winner of his 30 day stallion test with the Springpferdezuchtverband Oldenburg-International (OS) with a score of 8.10. Cafe au Lait’s full brother, Cody, was Bundeschampion 6yr old jumper in 2002. Cafe Au Lait’s offspring are known for their power, movement, and positive work attitude, all of which Royce exemplifies. Competing at the top of the sport, Royce always displays an excellent and kind temperament. His impressive presence and success in the ring make him a fan favorite to watch.
