Highly Successful KWPN Registered AES Approved Homozygous Black Dressage Stallion At Stud In Scotland & The UK

"A beautiful long lined dressage stallion that combines elegance and beauty with an abundance of presence elasticity and suppleness"

This charismatic dressage stallion attracts attention where ever he goes. His length of stride is long with expressive use of the foreleg in all three gaits. His canter is unquestionably uphill.

Bred by Marja & Simon Spaans at Stal Barghorn in the Netherlands, Amoureux was purchased as a weanling at the age of six months and imported to Scotland. He sired his first foals in 2008 with his first crop arriving in 2009.

His progeny have consistently achieved excellent results and positive remarks from the most experienced judges when presented at Stud Book inspections including the KWPN, Oldenburg, SSH and BEF futurity.

Due to his homozygous black genetics, Amoureux cannot sire chestnut foals.

Competition Success

Amoureux has achieved a multitude of high scoring wins and placings competing against the nations most experienced and talented horses and riders at the most prestigious high profile dressage shows, premier leagues Regional and National Championships

He debuted his dressage career in 2010 aged five in the young horse qualifiers with scores of 80%, including the Badmington Young Dressage Horse Of The Future, the Sheerwater Potential International Dressage Horse and the Sheerwater British National Young Dressage Horse. He made news headlines in Horse and Hound magazine following his second public appearance "Potential International star emerges in Scotland" read more >>>

At the UK KWPN Keurings 2010 Amoureux successfully passed his IBOP ridden performance test and was awarded the STER Predicate with above average suitability as a dressage horse. Read Report >>>

In 2014 he passed the strict veterinary requirements of the KWPN (x-rays and soundness of wind) thus enabling his progeny depending on the mares status eligible for main stud book status when they come of age.

Amoureux has also enjoyed some success over a fence! With the jumping blood of G Ramiro Z the Holstein lineage of Flemmingh and the older German blood of Pik As, it comes as no surprise that he placed 5th out of 27 entries at the SSH loose jumping championships with scores of 80% for technique, scope and canter. Amoureux does and can jump for fun!

Above all Amoureux consistently passes on his amicable, loveable and willing work ethic. He is a fabulous choice for the sharpest of mares, and produces beautiful well balanced offspring suitable for the amateur and professional.

Progeny Success

From his first foal crop, five of his progeny presented at the SSH gradings received 1st premiums one of which Cullenbay Aurora obtained the highest scores out of over forty foals presented and is now competing with success with over 40 wins up to Medium Level dressage.

His daughter Halexia SSH was the highest scoring dressage filly at the UK KWPN Keurings Nationwide in 2012 inspected by Ine Van Deurzen and is now in training with International and Olympic dressage rider Judy Reynolds in Germany.

Her full brother Solaris Flambeaux was awarded his first premium as a yearling by the German graders Jens Meyer and Edwin Schuster, members of the grading board Pferdezuchtverband Baden-Wurttemberg e.V (P.Z.V.B.W) at the SSH Gradings gaining an excellent score of 85% for his trot.

Many others have been awarded high 1st premiums at the British futurity and have won many a Championship and Supreme Championship title throughout the UK.
