Approved Dutch stallion, black four year old, 16.3 hh.
Not only is “Tommy” blessed with outstanding looks and amazing conformation but he’s also has such athleticism to make Usain Bolt envy and legs long enough to make Elle Macpherson jealous, his temperament and trainability is a real attribute to his character.
His sire is called Connoisseur, who is a licensed KWPN stallion. Although he was born in Germany, Connaisseur has the remarkable distinction of being approved in four countries: Germany (Westfalen), Holland (KWPN), Sweden (ASVH) and Belgium (BWP). Achieving all that before his fourth birthday. A dressage stallion of the highest international quality, he attracted an extraordinary level of interest at the Swedish licensing, where he received an average gait score of 9.13, with 9.5 for his powerful, expressive trot, and a perfect 10 for his exceptional canter. Connaisseur’s willingness to work and talent as a dressage horse were also noted on his test results, along with the comment that he is easy going and quiet in the barn. As a breeding stallion he can be expected to improve rideablity and the canter in his offspring. The jumpers in Connaisseur’s bloodline are evident in the natural ability he demonstrates over fences. All three gaits are very correct, and he shows excellent use of the hind leg. With a naturally uphill balance, Connaisseur is a very modern type with an incredibly athletic build and beautiful head and neck. He has great presence, but his kind eye betrays a sweet, kind temperament. In the short time he has been under saddle, Connaisseur has demonstrated a wonderful character and great willingness to work. He is uncomplicated to ride and loves to please.
