    Indy-lou, do you know anything about him? I've watched his videos quite a few times and like him more and more.

    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.

    He is lovely -- who is Con Amour by? Not blown away with his rider, though.

    Connaisseur is by Con Amore (Conteur/Pik Bube/Wendekreis) out of a Donnerhall mare.

    Here is his owner's website:

    I believe Dr Samper has his frozen available for US and Canada

    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!)

    What is the fee for the frozen? I inquired early on and they hadn't set the price yet.

    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.

    Bumping this up because I as well would like to know about the offspring. Does anyone have any on the ground - handleability? Movement?

    No, not on the ground yet. But I'm impressed with the few I saw so far.
    Can hopefully report more in April.
