Jury: Bart Henstra, Harrie Dierks

We begin our 2017 KWPN-NA Keuring tour on September 1, at the well equipped facility Black Star Sport Horses. Host Lisa Blackmon made every effort to increase the entries , but regretfully due to the recent hurricane in Texas, there were many scratches.
The 3y old gelding Jumani (Johnson Keur x Nirvana Ster Preferent by Fleming; Owner/ Breeder: Larry & Kathy Childs of Crooked Post Farm) was awarded with the High Point score of the keuring.  This tall, uphill built and long lined gelding showed a really well balanced canter with good suspension (scoring 80). Jumani uses his long muscled neck well and has good technique in trot. With 75 conformation and 75 movement this gelding earned his ster predicate. His dam Nirvana, proves herself with her offspring; she also produced last year’s Champion Jumper foal by Goodtimes.

The yearling Lincoln (Expression x Diene R Elite EPTM-DR by Uphill; Owner: Danielle Criswell, Breeder: Jennifer Zauel) is a long lined and long legged dressage gelding. He shows good articulation and suspension in his active trot. His neck has very good length and shape, but could be more muscled at this moment. He was awarded High Score young Dressage horse.

The high score ribbon for the Harness horses was earned by Majesteit -PH (Governor ZE x Charisma Keur by Vaandrager; Owner/ Breeder: Douwe Plantinga). This elegant filly has a supple way of moving with sufficient action in the foreleg and an active use of her hindleg.

Jury: Bart Henstra, Harrie Dierks

The second keuring of the KWPN-NA tour 2017 was held at a new facility for us; Blue Gate Farm . This pretty farm supported a fluidly run Keuring with a good atmosphere. The good footing and stabling supported the performances of the horses well.

High Score Adult Dressage horse was the 3y old mare Joly Cara C PROK (Dream Boy PREF x Ancara C Elite, IBOP-DR by Flemmingh; Owner: Jennifer Zauel, Breeder: Stoeterij ‘T Centrum). This elegant mare has a functional conformation with an expressive front end and has a lot of go in her movement. Especially her canter was very balanced, powerful and uphill, with good suspension and articulation. It is easy for her to collect and lengthen her stride (scoring 85). Her trot is light footed and easy, with good use of her body. Joly Cara C also earned her keur eligible predicate today.

High Score Young Dressage horse was awarded to the well developed daughter of Governor, called Lailah (Governor x Arabella K by Flemmingh; Owner/Breeder: Yvonne Sue Carr) She has a good topline and a long vertical neck. She showed powerful and balanced movement in trot as well as in canter. She has good reach in her front leg and a carrying use of her hind leg in all gaits. This makes her a promising dressage horse for the future. Second place in this class of Dressage Yearlings was the refined and elegant gelding Louisville SS (UB40 x Zomica W. Keur Sport-DR by Ferro; Owner: Hillary Oliver, Breeder: Dawn Spencer). This gelding is light footed with good technique in the legs and has sufficient reach in his front leg.

First in the class of Dressage foals was the filly Monaco (Ferro PREF x Zancerre PROK by Sir Sinclair KEUR; Owner/Breeder: Miller Stables LLC.) This well proportioned filly is very correct and has a good topline and expressive front end. In trot she shows good suspension and has a really good use of her hindleg. Her hindleg is always carrying and stepping under, therefore she is rising in her withers and uphill in her trot. Her canter is light footed with sufficient length of stride. Second place was for the long lined Dreamboy son Magnus (Dream Boy PREF x Dieni R Elite, EPTM-DR by Uphill; Owner/Breeder: Jennifer Zauel). This long legged colt has a long, vertical and well shaped neck. He is supple in his long strided trot and canter with sufficient power. *Editor’s Note: Did anyone else notice that the mare Dieni R was also the dam of Lincoln, the High Score Young Dressage horse in Texas too?

Iron Spring Farm https://www.ironspringfarm.com/
Jury: Bart Henstra, Harrie Dierks

The Keuring at the great facility Iron Spring Farm was very well run and efficient, despite the cool temperatures and afternoon rain.
Highlight of the keuring was the group of Dressage foals. The two groups showed outstanding quality. Three foals were called back from the colt and filly groups to the championship ring.
Champion in the foal class and High Score of the Keuring was awarded to the very elegant Hennessy filly, called Matisse (Hennessy x Beatrice VDL STER by Prestige VDL, Owner/ Breeder: Denise Osborne). She is a real dressage type; expressive, long lined and very well proportioned. She uses her long vertical neck very well with her athletic body. She is very supple and light footed in walk, trot and canter, with good technique in her legs and uphill tendency. She is a real athlete. Her quality places her at the top of the dressage foals in the country thus far.
Runner up was the powerful colt Milano ISF (Glock’s Toto Jr. x Dilona Sport-DR by Lord Leatherdale; Owner/ Breeder: Iron Spring Farm), this well proportioned and elegant colt has the technique and suppleness we like to see. He is very balanced and adjustable. He has the ability for collection and lengthening with great balance and body use. With his high score for movement, he is second in the country so far.
Third in the Championship ring was the very correct and strong muscled Ferro daughter Mokabria K.F. (Ferro PREF x Dateline S.E. by Hotline; Owner/ Breeder: Lisa Dickman) She has a very good use of her active hind leg and shows good posture. Her canter is balanced, powerful and shows easy changes.
Just out of the championship ring was the powerful mare Milana ISF (Governor x Dilona Sport-DR by Lord Leatherdale; Owner/ Breeder: Iron Spring Farm). This filly is from the same dam as our reserve champion Dressage foal, Milano ISF. Dam Dilona competes at PstG level. This filly has a lot of power in her balanced canter, also her trot has good length of stride and power.
The long lined filly Magnolia ISF (Uno Don Diego x Cayenne W by Carabas; Owner/ Breeder: Iron Spring Farm) was fourth in her group and is big strided with sufficient uphill tendency.
Also at this keuring, the Jumper Gelding Jenuine Legacy MF (Emilion PREF x Canasta by Burggraaf PREF; Owner: Joanna Hagen, Breeder: Greg Michalson) was presented for Ster and in the Global Equine Sires cup. This correctly built gelding is a real Jumper horse! A powerful canter, careful, quick and upward in his take off, adjustable between the fences and fantastically athletic in his scope (earned a 9). This made him awarded with the High Score Jumper ribbon and a 85,5 in the Global Equine Sires cup.
Additionally, the well developed 5y old mare Hottie Lottie SPF PROK (Parco x Ulottie by Goodtimes; Owner/Breeder: Six Pound Farm LLC.) got her Ster and Keur eligible predicate. This well proportioned and correct mare has a good topline, a balanced canter, more than sufficient scope but could be more consistent in her technique.
The High Score Hunter ribbon was awarded to the very elegant yearling Lyric (Sir Sinclair x Willow by Consul; Owner: Karen Raach, Breeder: Ruth Ann Kershaw). This expressive mare has a nice, long and well muscled neck with a good topline and a long croup. Her supple, light footed and long strided movement makes her a real hunter prospect.
