I know he did well in the PAVO cup and in his licensing with the KWPN and that he has multiple European approvals. A breeder friend in Belgium said he was the best horse presented to their approvals. You've got to take notice when a stallion achieves top scores in any registry, and is also approved in many others. http://www.eurodressage.com/equestri...d-kwpn-society
He is owned by Sara Pocock, an amateur dressage rider from Vancouver, BC. She loves to chat about him, so I wouldn't hesistate to get in touch with her. I believe she said the plan was to leave him in Europe for now with Emmelie Scholtens and aim him at the World Young Horse Championships this year. I really, really like the looks of the this stallion. However, I found his stud fee very high for such a young and unproven stallion and frozen semen as well. I inquired about discounts for premium/elite mares and was told that no discounts were being offered. (This was for a SPS Weltmeyer/Rubenstein mare than had produced multiple SPS and premium offspring as well as champions under saddle, so not a slouch of a mare!)
I went to Langley, BC in December and he is the sweetest boy!! Such a love and very respectful! He is a brilliant mover with tons of natural suspension and really covers the ground. I will be breeding my mare to him ASAP.
Even though this thread is old, I'm glad it was bumped up. What a lovely horse.
Does anyone here have any foals arriving this year? Found some photos of some babies on his facebook - looks like they have lots of quality. Would he be described as fairly modern/leggy? Love seeing a little bit of that jumping blood in there...curious as to what kind of mare he does best with.
