2016 Black Oldenburg GOV Gelding
This incredible cross has given us another outstanding prospect! This leggy boy is our best Ampère gelding to date; very elegant with class to spare. Absolutely FEI quality; he is naturally uphill in all three gaits with a substantial overstep at the walk, trot and canter. He has terrific freedom though the shoulder with lengthy reach through his front legs. He has a round trot and canter, displaying terrific pushing power in both gaits. This boy will shine in the ring; a deep black coat with 2 white cuffs is just what a formal requires. We estimate he will mature 16.2-16.3.
Ampère (Rousseau/Flemmingh/Amor) is a modern, refined type with top-quality gaits that he consistently passes on to his offspring. His first foals earned a very favorable report from the KWPN including comments that the foals use their body well in the trot, show good length of stride, and “they move uphill with abundant balance and carriage, and collect well.” Dressage breeders around the globe are captivated by the movement and expression that Ampère passes to his offspring.
Ampère was the clear winner of his stallion performance test, scoring 8 for his walk, 9 for his trot, 9.5 for his canter, and 9’s for rideability and talent as a dressage horse. The test riders praised him as the ‘best horse they had ridden in years’ and particularly praised his suppleness, self-carriage, and strong hindleg. His sire Rousseau was champion stallion in the Netherlands and won the Silver Medal at the FEI World Championships for Young Horses in 2003. Ampère’s damsire is Preferant stallion Flemmingh, the sire of stallions Krack C and Lingh.
Fleur de Lune is a consistent producer with any stallion, and has produced only Premium Award foals. Her foals have been by Ampere, Johnson and Fürstenball. She is by the Elite stallion Feiner Stern, who sired 18 approved stallion sons in Europe and 26 States Premium mares. He received 9’s for trot, canter, rideability, and willingness to work at his 100 day stallion test in Adelheidsdorf, Germany. He was named Main Premium Champion Stallion of Oldenburg in 1987 due to his outstanding quality, performance test scores, and convincing quality of his first foal crop. He was known for producing progeny with very good foundations, good looking with beautiful heads, and very easy to ride and handle. Fleur’s damsire is the Elite Hanoverian stallion Diamont (Durkheim x SPS Babette/Bleep xx). Diamont was a noted dressage sire and was ranked first in 1994, 1996 and 1997 by the USDF among all Hanoverian stallions for producing USDF Horse of the Year qualifiers. In 1995 he was the 7th leading producer of qualifiers among stallions of all breeds in the U.S. He produced three licensed stallions and fourteen Elite Hanoverian mares. His offspring are well noted for being successful in all the sport horse disciplines including dressage, Grand Prix show jumping and eventing.
