Flemmingh, a KWPN preferent stallion, was euthanized on Oct. 9 after an existing condition caused the stallion’s condition to deteriorate. He was 20.
Owned by Wiepke van de Lageweg, he was a top producer of national sport horses. He sired Anky van Grunsven’s Grand Prix horse Krack C, Edward Gal’s Lingh (now owned by Karin Reid Offield) and the current Pan American Games gold medalist Regent, ridden by Christopher Hickey.
Other successful international horses by Flemmingh include Gemma Green’s O’Brian, Imke Schellekens’ Melvin and the 2006 United States Young Horse champion Up To Date, ridden by Jan Brons.
Flemmingh was born in 1987 in Germany and was by the Holsteiner Lacapo out of Texas (Carneval—Lorenz). As a 3-year-old, he was one of the best performers at the 1990 KWPN Stallion Performance Test, particularly in show jumping.
Flemmingh was graded for the KWPN society, the Oldenburg Verband and the Swedish Warmblood society.
