Year of birth: 2006
An exceptional stallion with fascinating dynamic of movements.
Dressage horse breeding put in a nutshell: The big framed Bretton Woods inspires with a lot of expression, rideability and an outstanding quality of basic gaits. He gets more and more new admirers in his wake and won the bronze medal at the 2011′ World Championship for five-year old dressage horses. One year before, he won superior the VSN-Trophy in the Netherlands, where he achieved a score of 10.0 for his rideability and, prior to this, he placed first in the 50-day test of KWPN. His former rider Emmelie Scholtens said about him: “The best horse I have ever ridden”.
Bretton Woods’s sire Johnson, the 2005′ KWPN Champion Stallion and finalist of the 2007’ WC for young dressage horses, is himself highly successful in the international dressage sport with Hans Peter Minderhoud. Bretton Woods’ dam, Annabel, produced, when bred to Jazz, the licensed stallion Chagall and belongs for years to the highest ranked mares in the KWPN breeding. Over the significant black stallion De Niro, who is placed first in the WBFSH ranking of dressage sires, and the esteemed Romancier, who is also dam’s sire of Fürst Romancier, the maternal genetics is strongly secured.
Bretton Woods’ offspring is brilliant in type and, as expected, strongly moving. In 2012, he presented for the first time a higher number of foals in Germany, who nearly all have been awarded a premium and were sold for top prices at auctions.
