DENVER LG is rapidly gaining a reputation amongst breeders as a stallion that gives great movement and refinement to mares. He is a superb example of a modern dressage type who is extremely correct in his conformation.
Lauded as a Dressage Stallion this lovely horse has a pedigree to inject performance across all three disciplines. With his young stock taking premium gradings at BEF Futurity shows. He has had regional winners in both the dressage and eventing sections. This UK Dressage Stallion, is passing on the best of genetics through both his sire and dam lines. His own good looks and superb conformation are testament to this. He also has a wonderful temperament making him a joy to train and handle. In a Horse Scout review they stated “Watching the
UK stallion parade at Twemlows Hall last year I was impressed with him. He moves easily into the collected trot paces showing a freedom through his back and giving us a glimpse of the horse he will become. In his Piaffe
he showed very correct collection with good hind foot flexion, the action of a true Piaffe. I am in no doubt that, with maturity, this eye catching AES Stallion will move, from truly impressive, to stunning in the dressage arena. He is short coupled with a wonderful shoulder and length of neck set well behind an archetypal KWPN head. His hind leg has freedom and power and the potential for real promise to excel in the footsteps of his sire Johnson (also known as Glocks Johnson – Verdi V)”. Johnson was champion dressage stallion at his own licensing in 2005 . Johnson is the son of the Grand Prix Keur Stallion Jazz (Cocktail and Keur Flemmingh) On his Sire Dam Line he has Approved Oldenburg Stallion Sion and also Grand Prix Jumper it’s Otto and his Dam Line Granciano/Landino and also Grannus. Johnson was top competition stallion in 2006 & 7 and in 2007 also took the World Championship Title in Verden. And also won at M level in Stallion classes in 2008 and now has two approved stallions.
The Denver LG dam line (Godiva) is through Landino (Langraf 1) a prolific sire of approved and premium stock was placed 2nd at his grading with an impressive overall score of 137.79. His Son Lord Sinclair broke auction records at 2.8 million DM. Lanciano also bred state premium mares, 22 approved sons and his stock also broke records in the sale rooms and are proven in the show jumping arena. Godiva’s Dam “Grannschka” bred 4 approved stallions. Denver LG is a modern Sports Horse with the best of both Dressage and Jumping Lines in his pedigree. He was the reserve Champion Dressage foal in the Netherlands and qualified to go forward to the National KWPN Championships in Ermelo in Holland. As a three year old he competed at the National PAVO Dressage Championships and qualified to go forward to the VSN Championships (Dutch Sports Horse
Denver’s movement is breath-taking, demonstrating a fantastic hind leg action and the ability to collect and lengthen through his frame. He is long limbed and short coupled through his back with a fantastic long neck and amazing front. He has a fabulous character with complete wow factor good looks and show stopping presence. Denver is now training with Ruth Edge and preparing to compete this year.
