In premium stallion Neil, two very successful Dutch sport lineages join forces. Neil is a son of Governor, the son of the sensational top stallion Totilas. Governor recently made his successful debut in the international Grand Prix with Adelinde Cornelissen. In Neil, Governor has his fourth approved son at the KWPN, thus leaving their mark not only in sport but also in breeding.
The dam of Neil is Fanita, a keur IBOP sport(dres) mare by the preferent stallion Vivaldi, that stood out at the inspections and is currently successful in sport. She received 90 points for conformation and 95 points for movement, was sixth at the National Mare Championships and passed her IBOP with an astounding 95 points, including a 10 for trot. She also participated successfully in the Pavo Cup as a four-year-old, she was the undisputed winner. Fanita is classified at international Prix St. George-level herself. Fanita’s dam is the elite preferent prestatie mare Sarita (s.Havidoff) that competed in Z1 classes herself. Paired with Vivaldi, she produced multiple successful sport horses, including the KWPN-approved international Grand Prix-stallion Desperado, the international Grand Prix-horse Chinook and the Z-level horses Evita and Jazzboy. She furthermore brought an international Intermediair I-horse by Sir Sinclair and a Z-horse by Telex. The damline of Neil continues with the ster mare Nikita, a daughter of the preferent top producer Ferro. This Nikita is the dam of the ZZ-Licht dressage horse Arwin (s.Trento B).

From his KWPN performance test:

“Neil is an honest and reliable stallion with a good attitude. The stallion has a lot of willingness to work and is easy to work with. The walk is pure, very good in scope and has good body-use. The trot is good in terms of tact and more than sufficient in scope. The hind leg is more than sufficiently engaged, however needs to develop further in strength. The canter is powerful, uphill and good in scope. In movement, Neil shows abundant elasticity, a very good posture and a good balance. As a dressage horse, Neil has a lot of talent and he gives his rider a good feeling. “
