Ringer, the legendary Puerto Rican Paso Fino champion, unique in the world, was born on October 1, 1980 in Isabela. Destined, since giving their first steps behind her mother, Tinkerbell, to be a king of fierce at the stables of the country. A horse has earned fascinating illuminated words within that chapter exalted assembly, inside and outside the borders of Puerto Rican culture.
The day I first saw him competing, making flowery finery and haughty step, I told a friend: "That horse wins at him." And it was. Won imposing its class, with prodigious cadence lightning and burning briskly.
It is common knowledge that it was an extraordinary horse dragged after his well-earned fame, many understood, they saw out of their four star helmet gleaming, like his father, Ulesati.
I simply collect his legend and deserved fame words, lovingly free as the wind, knowing that life is made more omissions than memories.
His breeder was the agronomist, Jose Elias Abreu, who according to his closest associates, he saw that the colt would over time outstanding horse in the history of horse saddle, both for its lineage, and its fine appearance, seasoned with stars, which brushed his mane in the wind.
It is said that an eyewitness, in the beginning of his taming, under the reins of the teacher, Vivian Feliciano, stated: "That colt had wanted for himself the liberator Simon Bolivar."
And the horse was a truly lilting a rampant verve, unsurpassed in its notorious balance, perfect neck, raised rash that left gaping to the chair.
One of his privileged editors, Gorito Ballester, once said that "I do not see anything above the ears when ringer is turned", imagining that the horse wore on those unforgettable moments, a couple of lit jachos tabonuco and heart of a medieval cross.
The athlete Adjuntas, Jorge "Gory" Ballester, recognized sports figure Puerto Rican Paso Fino, also sensed that the horse would be a champion, dearly bought their feelings and, to the delight of his wife Lillian, and their children, Mario and Gorito. So I tried to always Montaran flange aces extraordinary, as are: Vivian Feliciano, Minin and Black Kuilan, Rodrigo Brand, Gorito Ballester and Rodolfo Maldonado Adjuntas Velez.
They all realized in time, you can mount on their backs, were participants in a feast of the gods, where the viewer could also exultation by the strength, disposition and spontaneity of Ringer, which naturally could exceed with blissful attributes, the best striker "forward" in a football recopa.
Ballester Gory horse speaks with pride of feeling in your hands a scepter transparent and untouchable deserved pride. He says when best saw, was once your child Gorito spontaneously let go the bridle and the horse went so smugly, without breaking step, knowing a monarch who walks with pride on the seven colors of the rainbow.
Without hiding his joy, Ringer adds that he possessed in his days of glory of a splendid post protruding from its visible sky, because of their helmets went a perfect music and escape, among the majestic moments of his reign as champion.
Gory should be emphasized that it was purchased, when the horse was four and it was a winner in all regional competitions, always showing high magic and dreamlike splendor.
The color of chestnut colored horse was full, medium sized and large curd presence grace. Amazingly, as the enduring greatness of his symbol.
He was Reserve Champion in the First World Paso Fino Competition held in Ponce in 1989 and as usual it showed that day, his poetic brevity, which was adding to, as he passed the event, while his worthy rival were gradually fading on Later wheels.
A tamed him patiently Ringer Vivian Feliciano, an ace of aces of the flanges of our history, using a "current bocao", having on its bridge an invisible mark with a V for victory and as has been said, earned him the fair fame that also exceeded our borders, since one of their children, copy Gavilan astonished spectators of Canada. This horse was full brother Ringer Jacaranda, perhaps the best Paso Fino mare view of a while now.
For your greatness, Ringer was a tough road traveler reached somewhat dehydrated skills, then grown, despite the advantage he took, taking always the power of its splendor of fine horse, tightening the end, as the certainties the soul of a warrior unbeatable.
Caged, 'says Gory-dominant temperament was always like the sound and power of a river dump.
The assembler Colombia, Rodrigo Brand once said, undeterred, if Ringer had stepped Colombian soil, surely would have taxed hundreds of mares, lifting eyelids forcing many knowledgeable of the horse world, in the country of magical realism, which fits so much poetry and music.
In his old age the horse Champ at home in the paddock of Mr. Ruben Reyes in Juncos, who always knew that there was one of the Paso Fino champions of all time. Referring to the horse always Ringer said "Gory horse", in tribute to the friendship that has united in the waves of time.
