2014 Bay 169 cm, Champion Stallion of Westphalia, DE441411243514, 168 cm
Valverde is a strong young son of Vitalis, with dam sire – Ampere.
He is an exciting young stallion, who at first glance is the image of Ampere. He has very powerful quarters, which together with a short, strong back, present a very good and active hindleg with forward push and suspension. His gaits are very balanced and rideable, with all three gaits being good quality. He is already in demand as a breeding stallion.
Valverde was the undisputed champion stallion of the Westfalen-Körung 2016, with a strong pedigree for performance through just his two sire lines: Father Vitalis – the winner of the Nuremberg Burg Pokal 2016 – and his grandfather – the Landgraf great-grandson Krack C – founded a new dressage line in Holland. Dam’s sire Ampére goes back to the even successful Olympian Ferro, the grandfather of the double Olympic champion Valegro. Westphalia’s Stallion Florestan comes through First Final, who comes from an Argentinus mother, in the third generation to fruition. Dam of the British championship horse Artemis / Richard Davison.
Valverde exhibits powerful uphill movement, swings through his whole body in trot and gallop with impeccable walk and high conformation values.
November 2017; Danish young stallions have just finished their 35-day test at Tørring Ridecenter and have their final test results. A total of 24 stallions were tested at Tørring Ridecenter with master rider Torben Frandsen in charge of the 35-day test.
