2008, Black, 170cm
Now competing and winning at Prix St Georges and Intermediare I, Dream Boy was the first Vivaldi son who was approved by the KWPN.
As a young stallion, Dream Boy placed fourth in the PAVO Cup — the Dutch Championships. At the World Cup, in 2014, in Verden, he won the bronze medal for the 6-year-old dressage horses. Now he has sons of his own going to the KWPN stallion performance testings.
Dream Boy is a modern long-legged stallion, an elegant type and full of charm. His impressive hind leg action shines thorough in all three gaits. The canter was inherited from his grandfather, Ferro, and in the performance test, was assessed with an 8.5. All three gaits, and his exemplary work ethic, were rewarded with good scores.
In the GMB Stallion competition, he placed 2nd in the final and received several times 9.5 for his trot, his canter, and his dressage talent.
Dam Resia is an elite mare, did a good performance test and comes from a family that produced many good dressage horses. Vivaldi, Dream Boy’s sire, was very successful at the small tour level under Han Peter Minderhoud and has an excellent reputation as dressage performer.
The first foals sired by Dream Boy arrived in spring 2012 and received the following KWPN foal report:
A uniform collection of sufficient to more than sufficiently developed, long-legged foals, which have more than sufficient dressage horse conformation and abundant ‘blood’. The walk has sufficient stride length and more than sufficient elasticity. The trot is light-footed and has more than sufficient stride length. The foals pick up the canter easily and demonstrate more than sufficient stride length and balance. The foals have correct movement and good carriage.
KWPN breeding recommendation: Dream Boy can improve conformation and the canter. He is best bred to large mares with sufficient body length.
Approved for KWPN, Oldenburg, Westphalian, Rheinlander, Danish, Hanoverian, all southern German associations.
