Keur stallion PROVEN to produce Grand Prix Dressage Horses!
Farrington comes from a sound well-bred family. Farrington is one of the few Dutch stallions with the famous dressage stallion Doruto in his blood. Doruto sired many top dressage horses including Olympic Barbria, Chevalier, Ideaal, etc.
His sire Wellington is well known as a producer of quality movement in his offspring, siring dressage horses like Bollvorms Ceylon and Luxaflex.Due to the fracture in his leg, Farrington was not able to perform in the sport.
>His offspring perform very well. This appears from the successful participation of various progeny at the Pavo Cup and from his dressage index.
Farrington has been awarded the Keur Predicate by the KWPN in 2002. This is a high honor for a stallion indication he is a producer of good performance horses.
Due to a fracture in his leg, Farrington was not able to perform in the sport, which is a pity because of the great talent he possesses. During his Stallion Test he received an eight for his basic gaits and 9 in temperament.
His daughter Perry became Dutch reserve-champion of the 3 year old mares.
His offspring perform very well in the sport, resulting in his high index. His progeny have placed high in the Pavo Cup, and many of them are already performing at the Prix St. George level, such as Limited Edition.
Farrington sires horses with a willing character and 3 excellent strong gaits. These are the requirements for top performances in dressage and you see that his offspring compete to the highest levels of Dressage proving it! Farrington is a super stallion for dressage. He received high marks on all 3 gaits 8.5 walk, 8 trot and 8 for canter. And a character of 9. He was described in his testing that the work was easy for him and he was very willing to work. We have seen that in his offspring here too. Uloma, Vermouth and Uno have all been super characters and big strong fancy movers. In Holland he has so far received 41 star mares, 23 keur mares and 1 preferent mare. For colts, he has had 22 1st round stallions, 2 2nd round stallions and 3 third round stallions. All indicating star or better!
Farrington has a high dressage index of 129 in 2007. He brings the famous Doruto bloodlines who produced top dressage horses as Olympic Barbria, Chevalier and Ideaal. His sire Wellington also well known as producing great movers like Ceylon and Luxaflex.
His daughter Perrey was the Dutch Reserve Champion of 3 year olds and Theadra was National Reserve Champion of the Keur and Elite mares. He has many offspring showing at the upper levels of dressage including Limited Edition and Michigan. After the stallion testing, Farrington himself had an unfortunate accident fracturing his hind leg, so he was unable to perform in sport. But, he has proved himself as a dressage sire and the KWPN recognized him with the prestigious predicate of KEUR.
