Amadeus is a VERY special colt and is destined for greatness. He is arguably the very best foal Preference has produced to date, which is REALLY saying something. She always brings out and passes on the best traits in whichever stallion she is bred to.
It is not often that judges from a breed organization actively campaign to get a breeder to register a foal with their organization rather than another. After watching his GOV registered half brother A La Dressage (by Ampere) draw a record sale price of 200,000 Euros recently at the auction at Vechta, and then seeing Amadeus when they were here at our farm for the GOV Inspection, they knew GOV wanted to register this much flashier colt as well. The GOV judges were not going to give up until I agreed to let them register this colt. Amadeus is actually pure Dutch Warmblood by breeding, so he was going to registered KWPN.
Amadeus is an absolutely stunning colt with lots of style and flash. His outgoing personality and 'look at me' attitude is just the X factor you've been waiting for! His powerful walk and bold, high-action trot is reminiscent of his talented sire Ampere and half sibling, A La Dressage. An athletic uphill canter completes the package to make this one of the most promising young dressage prospects you will come across. Feel free to view his videos and discover this young colt for yourself!
We have only done ground work with him due to his young age. He calmly longes, leads, ties, loads, bathes, and stands for the farrier and the vet. Amadeus has been recently saddled for the first time and is now learning to longe with tack. Amadeus: 2011 GOV Foal of Distinction (by Ampere)
