Totilas’ first UK foal has been born — and the honour of naming him went to Edward Gal, the world-record breaking dressage star’s former rider.

In keeping with the superstar theme, the jet-black colt has been named Te Amo, one of Edward’s favourite songs by pop sensation Rihanna.

Foaled on 31 March, Te Amo is out of the Oldenburg mare Mrs Rouse (Rubinstein x Donnerhall) and was bred by Mitzi Stillebroer of Queens Orchard stud in Essex.

“He has an inquisitive, bold temperament and great movement with a very powerful canter for a foal of only a few days old,” said a delighted Mitzi.

“We’ve already had a lot of enquiries from the UK and abroad about him and are asking interested parties to outline their plans via email so we can decide on the best future of this very special colt.”
