Faye is a spectacular mare who has inherited her sire Apache’s amazing elasticity. She is an extravagant mover with powerful ground covering movement and an exceptional canter. Combined with her kind sweet nature and movie star looks she captures your eye wherever she is.

We eagerly await her 2017 foal by the KWPN Performance Test Champion Dettori who is by Desperado x De Niro.

Her 2016 colt Lifestyle by Ferguson has been retained as a future stallion prospect.

Sire Apache
Apache represents the best of modern KWPN breeding. He started his career by becoming the Reserve Champion of the KWPN Stallion Show and has gone to win at almost every level of the stallion competitions. He debuted at Grand Prix as a nine year old, recently scoring 78.73% in the VHO Trophy Grand Prix Kur! His success as a sport horse was almost guaranteed by his pedigree, which contains eight Grand Prix horses in the first five generations.

His sire, UB-40, himself third place in the Championship Ring of the KWPN Stallion Show, has proven to be such a good producer of keuring and sport horses that his offspring are highly sought after by Dutch breeders, and stallion holders in Holland have made repeated advances to bring UB-40 back to Holland. UB-40 is by the Grand Prix and keur stallion, Olivi, who is by none other than the world famous dressage competitor and producer, Jazz, and out of the very famous Utopia mare line. Olivi’s dam is the elite, preferent, and prestatie mare, Halla Utopia, who is by the popular, grey Grand Prix stallion Aktion. UB-40’s dam is the keur, preferent, prestatie, sport mare, Kilucienne, a daughter of the influential Trakehner stallion, Michelangelo, and out of a keur, preferent, prestatie daughter of the KWPN foundation sire, Farn.

Apache’s dam is the elite, preferent mare, Tolanda. She is a daughter of the flamboyant Grand Prix competitor, Krack C, and out of a ster, preferent daughter of the long-time FEI competitor, Inspekteur. This mare line has produced multiple top sport and breeding horses.

As a sire, Apache received one of the best foal reports of his year and has produced multiple foal champions. In 2016, he sired the most sons selected for the KWPN Stallion Show and had four sons make the final cut to go on to the performance test, including a son selected for the Championship Ring. Judges consistently award Apache a 10 for his trot and use of his hind leg and he consistently passes on this electric movement to his offspring. Apache is clearly an up and coming Grand Prix super star and a sire of importance.

Dam Sire Florestan
Florestan sports a sire line of world importance, that of Furioso II. Florestan has produced over 50 stallion sons and over 40 State Premium mares. Florestan is recognized within the breed as a sire who can be relied upon for superior heritability. He produces outstanding basic paces, a beautiful head and lovely temperament. Florestan I has a superb dressage breeding index of 166. He was the Champion of the 1988 Rhineland approval.  His dam, Raute, is a proven show mare in the Rhineland area.  At the age of 3 she was Champion mare of her age group.  In 1983 she won her class at the German Mare show in Verden, and in 1986 she was Champion junior mare at the federal show in Aix-la-Chapelle.
