Khaffire+ lived to be 27 years old. For 26 of those years, he was owned by Mario & Antonia Arroyo. He took us many wonderful places, and gave us so many thrilling moments. His legacy continues to live on through his offspring.

Khaffire+ was by the National Champion *Bask++ son Cease Fire+++, and out of Khatee, a Khemosabi++++ granddaughter. As dictated by his pedigree, Khaffire+ possesses the quality, type, conformation and presence of a fine halter horse in addition to the athleticism and trainability of a great performance horse. He has proven himself successful in both endeavors.

Khaffire+ was among the few stallions with national halter titles to successfully cross-over into the performance division, having done so at a top level of competition - Open English Pleasure at Scottsdale. After only three months training with Ray LaCroix, and at 4 years of age, Khaffire+ placed Top Ten (3rd) in the Open English Pleasure Championship at Scottsdale, earning added respect from horsemen and breeders alike. Only months after his Scottsdale English debut, Khaffire+ suffered an injury that cut short his promising performance career.

As a sire, Khaffire+ proved that performance horses could be beautiful, and halter horses could be athletic. He truly narrowed the gap between halter and performance. Khaffire+ consistently sired lots of trot with powerful hind ends, long upright necks, good length of leg, presence, coordination and trainability. He has numerous offspring that are both halter and performance Champions at the local and Regional level. His get and grand get have won at the US and Canadian Nationals in halter and performance.

A limited amount of frozen semen is available.
