2011, Black, 172 CM
Freestyle is an elegant, yet noble type of stallion with a relaxed, open-minded temperament with good willingness to work. He has three lovely gaits with active knee and hock action.
Freestyle did his stallion performance test in Schlieckau, Germany in 2014, finishing 4th with a score of 134 points with 8.24 in dressage, out of 42 entries. He was awarded a 10 for temperament, a 9 for walk, and a 9 for canter.
He has a strong, wonderful dam line – showing up about 11 licensed stallions and numerous Grand Prix dressage horses. Dam “Delilah” is a States Premium Oldenburg mare by Don Romantic. In turn, her Mother is an Elite Statemes Premium Oldenburg Mare by Sandro Hit. Behind that comes the blood of the great and powerful Argentinus, then on to Stamping sire Furioso II. I can go on in the damline (a favorite thing of mine!) Comes next the Absatz son Admiral I (Hanoverian) then on to the Holsteiner Magister (by Manometer xx). I can go on, but suffice to say, this is a strong mare line and should give Freestyle some stamping ability in his offspring.
His Sire, Furstenball, was Champion Stallion and performance test winner at Vechta. Furstenball was the 5 year old Bundeschampion in 2011 and is now training up to Grand Prix under rider Isabel Bache. He has already sired numerous approved sons and successful offspring.
Freestyle’s first offspring have shown good expression, alert and forward moving, with suppleness in walk, trot and canter. So far it appears that he does not carry the red factor, as all foals have been dark. He has been identified as free of OCD issues..
