Amour G: A key player at Team Torrent with Pippa Childerhouse in Norfolk, a Tobiano Warmblood Stallion; a star on the rise in the dressage arena.
Eye catching and successful in the competition arena, Amour G is a KWPN/Dutch Warmblood Tobiano Dressage Stallion standing 16.2hh.
There is no doubting his credentials to breed serious competition horses, but what went into breeding this Tobiano Warmblood Stallion?
Amour Gs’ Sire line Goshka Ringo, maternal grandson of Olympic Ferro and Purioso on the sire line, Purioso was the sire of Bonfire and Cocktail (sire of the 2006 KWPN Stallion of the year Jazz)
Purioso (son of Show jumping sire legend Furioso) produced three Olympic sons including Bonfire and Cocktail, who is the sire of Jazz, the 2006 KWPN stallion of the year.
His dams line is equally impressive with May Sherif sire of two progeny competing at the Soel Olympic Games in 1988.
Armour G is not just a pedigree. He has proved over and again that he has the presence and movement which is essential for a successful competitive career and also passes a strong stamp on his progeny. He also has a kind and gentle nature which makes him ideal for producing sensible riding horses for the amateur rider too. There is no denying that Armour G is so much more than a pretty face and a coloured coat!
As a Tobiano Warmblood competing as a Stallion in the dressage Arena, how does Amour G size up?
Amour G has both Olympic dressage and show jumping stars on both sides of his pedigree and these fantastic family members have influenced him and the way he is made. He has three loose, rhythmic elevated paces and a very good length of rein.
So maybe its no surprise that he was awarded Elite First Premiums for both Dressage AND show jumping. His lowest grading was 9 (out of 10). His comments included very favourable remarks on his walk, his good hind leg, his scope and his switched on approach at his BEF grading.
He has been licensed with the AES, and graded with the SHB(GB) and WBS-UK in the Sports Horse Register (champion)
Amour G had a consistent dressage career to date and is now working well in Advanced levels with impressive scores of up to 78.8%. He is aimed at PSG for this 2015 season with his new rider GB team member Nikki Crisp. Horse Scout wished them the very best in their new partnership and feels sure that the compliments from those judging him will continue along the same lines as previously. i.e. “a pleasure to judge!” “Impressive” and “A sure talent for the future”, and Horse Scout Blogger is sure the words of the Olympic Judge who described him as “world class” are not short of the mark, and Nikki Crisp certainly feels the same way about this lovely Tobiano Dressage Stallion.
Amour G has also competed under BSJA rules to Newcomers and also shows a bold but careful X-country flair. To cap it all he has also bee successful in the show ring where he has been lightly shown. With valuable accolades he was the winner of many sport horse classes and championships and won the coveted BSPA Superstar In Hand Championship twice.
Young Stock progress for this lovely Tobainao Dressage stallion, Amour G a KWPN/Dutch Warmblood.
His first progeny where born in 2010 and, with the older ones now under saddle, there is a definite trend towards success in them too. Armour Gs’ progeny are winning in the show ring at county level and there is an impressive count of BEF Higher First Futurity winners. His young stock having recently (June this year) been winning yearling Sporthorse classes and successes in Event Youngstock classes.
Youngstock from this gorgeous Tobiano Dressage Stallion may not always carry his colouring but they definitely are using his super genes to good effect in their competitive endeavours where class, integrity and superior quality as paramount.
