King Pin in the dressage arena – Grand Prix Stallion Royal Rubin.

John Chubb rides his own Ruby Rubin took 5th in the Lovington Ace Advanced

Rubin Esque x Limbo owned by Kim Seaby and Linzie Seaby have two classes 02 GP / 04 GPFS

Royal Rubin himself  is a well made deep chestnut standing at 16.3hh and with his white stockings is an eye catcher in the dressage arena doubtless drawing attention to his elastic, powerful and elegant presence in the ring with his own profile page on Horse Scout.  This lovely, upstanding International Grand Prix stallion by Rubinstein has now retired from competitive dressage. Royal Rubin stands at Brownnscombe Stud in Devon, where the mares have every facility for both short and long term boarding and foaling.

Royal Rubin, is a Sachen-Anhalt with an impressive pedigree and a temperament which makes him a pleasure to handle and compete. He has a 70 day performance test with the Brandenburgh/Anhaltiner Studbook,and has been Accepted by WBS-UK, BHHS, and the Oldenburgh.

When you review this stallions career you cant help but be impressed. As well as an impressive dressage career Royal Rubin has an amazingly kind, gentle, straightforward temperament and these attributes are also seen under saddle. In competition his marks averaged between 65 – 76%.

His career gave him wins at Grand Prix including the Hamburg Derby in 2008 and Leipzig in 2009. After the Derby when the best 3 riders change horses for a short Grand Prix his owner and rider Heike Kemmer (team Gold and individual Bronze medal winner at the 2008 Olympics) said of Rudi “his willingness to work and his willingness to participate are always priceless. If I had several Rudi’s in the stable I would be totally lucky.” Royal Rubin also qualified for the World Cup finals.

His pedigree is exemplary, Royal Rubn’s sire Rubinstein, who needs little introduction, has 40 wins at Grand Prix, and he was a member of the 1996 Olympic team, sired 89 state premium mares and 66 approved stallions including Rodhiamant and Rotspon.

The dam line of Royal Rubin are predominantly jumpers. Barbarella is by Brandenburger who made his name in Puissance. He is also the dam sire of the incredibly well thought of stallion Quaterback. Brandenburger’s dam is by is the influential Hanoverian stallion Wendekreis, who is well known as a producer of riding horses with great trainability. Brandenburger was sired by Beach Boy, a KWPN stallion who sired 8 approved stallions and 239 competitive offspring who earned him a BLUP score of 137 for jumping and 143 for gaits. As a dam sire Beach Boy most famously sired Unika, dam of Arko lll who, ridden by Nick Skelton, was the number 1 horse in Europe for 3 years running.

Royal Rubin’s first crop of foals were born in 2014 and we were thrilled with them. They have excellent conformation, very uphill movement with good hock action and lovely temperaments. His fertility is excellent.

Woodlander Freddie M – Dressage Stallion with a passport to success


Having been approved at his 30 day test in Schlieckau for Oldenburg, Woodlander Freddie M, the top selling horse at Brightwells in 2013 with Bruce Mathews now a partner, however, he stays at home with his breeder Lynne Crowden at the Woodlander Stud, keeping it all in the family. Power, beauty and temperament are packed into this elastic and big moving young stallion. Woodlander Freddie M also was approved for WBS – UK in 2014, once more gaining particular merit for his movement. His is sire For Compliment, a fantastic mover himself with a great hind leg dynamic and an uphill carriage has passed this stamp to his son and Woodlander Freddie M’s performance test scores were excellent with one of the highest scores and marks over 9 for trot canter and ridability.

In 2010 Woodlander Freddie M’s sire For Compliment was Regional Champion and also qualified for the Bundeschampionat finishing in Bronze Medal position and a crowd favourite. Both Grandsires of Freddie M, Fidermark and Dimaggio, were Champions – one at the Bundeschampionat and the other at the World Championships for Young Horses. This convincing record is further strengthened by the legendary Caprimond and the dam sire of For Compliment, the quiet sire Compliment, who has produced many good high level horses including the powerful GP stallion Cockpit. He brings also the important blood of Calypso II.

From his dam’s line, (Elite Dornroeschen) carries the genetics of World Champion Dimaggio and has herself taken multiple National Championships and now competes Grand Prix. She was Small Tour Champion at Hartpury Festival of Dressage in 2013 and has heart stopping charm and movement especially in the canter. She is of course also the dam of double World Champion and continuing record breaker Woodlander Farouche.

This 16.hh Hanoverian stallion with Oldenburg and WBS-UK grading was born in 2011, so he is still a very young horse. You can see his profile on Horse Scout Stallion listings page under the Woodlander Stud banner here

There’s no denying his good looks: He’s Heaven – Heaven is standing his first season at The Woodlander Stud


Heaven is a stunning dark Bay Hannoverian 2012 Graded: WBS-UK stallion standing 16.1hh (165cm) listed with Horse Scout.

Lynne Crowden, owner of the Woodlander Stud, proudly says that from the very beginning, this young stallion has topped the lookability and the lovability polls. As the highest scoring Futurity dressage foal in 2012, he impressed with his type and his movement and this was despite being a very late foal.  Again  at the WBS_UK licencing in 2014 that he impressed with the way of going. This is a horse of “blood” (lighter weight build) but has unusually big movement for his type. Of course his dam line is impressive, St Pr Limoncello, was a Foal Champion, a Youngstock Champion and a Mare Champion and is already the dam of one other Hannoverian approved stallions, Clapton. She is also the dam of the top young dressage horse, Woodlander Betty Boo and her 2014 foal, by Zack achieved Futurity Elite and was also the Reserve Filly Champion for BHHS 2014, and Heaven is no exception in the good looks and eye catching stakes. Heavens sire Hotline was not only the top priced stallion at the auction in Verden but went on, via the Danish Young Horse Champion win, to achieve many successes up to and including Grand Prix. Heaven’s own sire, Hofrat also performed to a high level in the sport. Heaven also boasts the British Team horse Wie Weltmeyer ridden by Emma Hindle from his dams side.
