Relicario CH is a young stallion with a great canon of beauty. He meets many of the morphological standards of the PRE breed, such as: his subconvex frontal profile, his very proportionate conformation, and his appreciable sexual dimorphism. His airs (walk, trot, and gallop) are very correct and spacious, as he is a agile, elastic, cadenced horse. In terms of his character, he is a specimen that stands out for his great nobility, easy handling, and predisposition to work.
