indian rock (apache) x uphill x gribaldi(2017)filly


a stunning example of a future dressage star!

About - Indian Rock (formerly Igor) was the runaway winner of the 2016 KWPN licensing, with a further four Apache sons also invited for the performance testing. He has since passed his 50-day performance test in Ermelo with fantastic scores, and was also the Dutch champion at the Stal Brouwer stallion show on only his 11th time under saddle. 

Sire - Apache - who is only available frozen this season in the UK - has impressed in his first season at international grand prix under the Netherlands' Emmelie Scholtens, never scoring below 71%. After their first international at big tour, they were immediately cited as contenders for the Dutch Rio Olympic team, narrowly missing out on a place. Apache brings in a second dose of Jazz via his grand-sire Olivi, a Jazz son who also competed at grand prix. Jazz led the WBFSH Sire Rankings for four consecutive seasons, and has never been out of the top 10 in the current system - he is a legend in his own lifetime and has produced scores of grand prix horses. He was a grand prix competitor himself, and then went on to produce the likes of Parzival and Wynton. Jazz produces sensitive but trainable horses for dressage - and even the Dutch Olympic eventer Vira.

Damline - Indian Rock's dam Crisjena is an IBOP mare and was the 2010 Dutch Champion Mare. The damline has already produced the grand prix stallion Frits, and Brinkhof's Armanie, competing at small tour.

Crisjena's sire Vivaldi was very successful at small tour level under Han Peter Minderhoud and has an excellent reputation as dressage performer. He was reserve champion of his stallion performance test and in 2007 he won the Pavo-Cup of five-year-old dressage horses with Hans Peter Minderhoud. In 2008 and 2009, he added triumphs in the KNHS/KWPN stallion series achieving marks of 10.0 for his trot. At the World Championships in Verden in 2015, his son Eye Catcher won the bronze medal of the six-year-olds. In 2015 and 2016, his son Fenix won the five and six-year-old Pavo-Cup in the Netherlands. The Pavo-Cup of six-year-olds was a real festival for Vivaldi in 2016, when behind Fenix, in second and third place, were First Apple and Fantastique, both Vivaldi progeny.

Third sire Cabochon is a KWPN keur stallion, by the grand prix stallion Vincent. Cabachon has sired several grand prix horses including licensed stallion Upperville, and Brazilian Olympic team member Egistar.

her dam was ster graded for her prowess and combines dressage stars uphill and gribaldi in her breeding making this filly well and truly bred in the purple.

straight from the farm and like striking gold!
