ASTRIX – This Serene Stallion holds the World Champion Young Dressage Horse Hat Trick – LG Stud
Astrix, a handsome Black KWPN/Dutch 16.3hh Warmblood dressage stallion is put forward for nominations by LG Sports Horses.
For the UK breeder, it is useful to note that Astrix has been admitted to the KWPN, Oldenburger Verband and the Hannoveraner Verband. This serene stallion showed off his obedience and alertness even under pressure of very inclement weather at his stallion grading. Astrix kept his performance steady and was rewarded with a well deserved 9.6 for his trot, one of the highest grades ever!
Emmelie Scholtens rode Astrix in the World Championship for Young Dressage Horses in Verden and took the title for them both when he was five and repeated this when Astrix turned six .
Astrix’s family tree on his Horse Scout stallion profile page is brief and belies the string of champions he follows. His pedigree is perfect for his dressage career.
Astrix’s successful Grand Prix Sire, Obelisk, has many progeny competing at national dressage level. Obelisks’ son Tango is currently ridden at Grand Prix level by Canadian Cheryl Meisner. From his mother’s line, the ‘keur’ stallion Olivi (Jaxx + Aktion), also competes at Grand Prix. Olivi is the father of stallion UB40, a KWPN admitted stallion (Michelangelo) and Universal (Zuidhorn). Olivi’s son Triviant (Saluut) is also Grand Prix.
Astrix’s dam bloodline can be traced through Lady Réveil from Wittenstein van E. van Binsbergen, Zuilen. Also descending from the dam is Grand Prix qualified Jasper (Ferro x Tesdoorn f. Luckboyxx). Astrix carries Jazz in third generation and is free of Flemmingh and Gribaldi blood.
With his first crop in 2012, Asterix’ succeeding foals have all got his elegant blood stamp.
