Approved for: KWPN, Oldenburger Verband and Danish Warmblood
KWPN Champion 2013! Extremely interesting champion stallion by the popular and internationally recognized Ampére, who got his breakthrough this year with eight approved sons in Holland, Westfalen and Holsten. Ampére was champion stallion in Holland in 2008 and later on, he won the material test (walk 8.0, trot 9.0, canter 9.5 and rideability 9.0). Ampere has shaped the dressage breeding scene in Germany for years. 46 of his sons have been licensed – offspring have been successful at Bundeschampionats and at the world championships for young dressage horses.
The extended pedigree is also rich with top genetics: Flemmingh fathered Krack C, the father of Vivaldi. Pion in the fourth generation, a halfblood by Abgar XX, counts amongst the most prestigious dressage sires of the Netherlands in the 1980s.
As Franklin is line-bred on two of Holland’s major breeding magnates Ferro and Flemmingh, Franklin is a young stallion, on whom many people place great expectations.
His sire, Rousseau, won silver at the world championship for young horses in Verden in 2003 and has been able to present the champion stallion in Holland three times in a row.
His foals from the first two seasons show great potential. Several of his offsprings have inherited his spectacular gaits and great movements with active hind legs and a strong top line. Franklin produced the Danish champion filly and also the most expensive auction foal of the year.
