1.68 – darkbay – 2007 – KWPN, Old
Is a very complete, modern dressage stallion. He combines a good and strong model with three extremely good base gaits. Chippendale is a very talented dressage horse with a very good mentality.
Chippendale’s father is the charming, talented and promising black brown stallion Lord Leatherdale, who was Westfalen bred and KWPN approved. Chippendale was bred from a very performance driven mother line.
Chippendale’s mother Ti Amo is a Ster Prok Sport (dressage) daughter of the black top stallion Negro. She is a full sister of the successful small tour horse Straus (of Negro).
Ti Amo is described in her mother report as: “Riding type mare with lots of race”. “Step: clean, good space”. “Trot: nice foreleg technique, strong and very active hind leg”. “Gallop: lots of balance, good use of hind leg”. And: “Ti Amo switches well”.
Jolinde, Chippendale’s grandmother, is a ster preferente prestatie daughter of Landadel (Holstein). Also great-grandmother Felicita (Ulster) and great-grandmother Linda (Farn) are ster preferente prestatie mares.
Chippendale is very interesting and innovating from a breeding technique point of view. His blood structure is genial, with the best of Westfalen (Lord Leatherdale) combined with the top of the KWPN (Negro) originating from an almost pure “Holstein mare line” (Landadel etc.).
Chippendale was noticed during the Stallion Examination 2009/2010. He convinced at every appearance, and time and time again made a very strong impression. As youngest stallion of the group he appeared for the KWPN spring test and passed it successfully. Chippendale’s performance report notes: “Chippendale is an honest stallion with a good mentality, he is very prepared to work, moves with good leg technique and has got a lot of talent for being a dressage horse”.
Last winter Chippendale has been thoroughly trained and by growing older he is developing sensationally as a dressage horse. During the past Stallion Examination 2011 in ’s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, he made a very strong performance. Next to his great base gaits, he also showed his amazing ring mentality, and manifested himself as one of the entertainers of this year’s group of performance stallions.
