Thirteenth-Generation Mulawa-Bred Champion

Member of the TRUE LOVE Family


VAN HALEN represents a new era for the Mulawa programme, as the first foal of his international champion sire VANGELIS MI. A two-time Australian National Gold Champion as well as a unanimous Scottsdale International, US Arabian Open & Australasian Breeders Cup Gold Champion, VANGELIS MI represents the precious blood of DA VALENTINO, whose influence has been profound at Mulawa. VANGELIS is a full sibling to two other Australian National & international champion sisters: the glorius VALENTINO’S ANGEL MI & ALWAYS VALENTINE MI. VANGELIS is a descendant of the M ANGELIQUE Family through the incomparable SK SHAKLA KHAN daughter ALWAYS AN ANGEL, an exceptional source of refinement, show attitude and versatile athletic ability.

VAN HALEN is also the first foal of his precious dam, A LOVE NOTE MI, a beautiful daughter of Australian supersire ALLEGIANCE MI. A LOVE NOTE is a full sister to Australian National Champions TRUTH MI & TREND MI, both out of the imported MARWAN AL SHAQAB granddaughter DM MARCEDES TRUE LOVE. TRUE LOVE is beloved as an Aristocrat Dam of five champions, all of which have won at the highest level in Australia. She is especially renowned for producing exceptional sons with a talent for winning in both halter and under saddle. 

VAN HALEN is an incredibly kind, intelligent and good-natured young gelding with an abundantly enthusiastic attitude towards life. His natural inclination is to be a show horse, and he would be ideal for a youth or non-pro handler/rider, with the ability to succeed at the highest level with the right exposure. His big front, exuberant tail carriage, bright red coat colour and ‘look at me’ attitude will make VAN HALEN a stand out in any environment.
