- General Information
August 24, 2006 | Orangeville, Ontario - There were seven stallions presented at the Ontario licensing. Of those, four were successful.
VDL Windsor H (Indoctro x Ahorn), a three-year-old Canadian Warmblood stallion bred by Hogendoorn Dutch Warmblood Sporthorse Imports and owned by Timothy Millard of Sentinel Hill Farm, in Schomberg, Ontario was awarded a 7.55. This young stallion, the half brother of VDL Ulando H who was Ontario Licensing Champion and Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test in 2004, and is shown under Beth Underhill in the Jumper Development classes. Notable in Windsor's assessment were a 9 for gallop and 8s in correctness of gaits, jumping scope and breed & sex type. He is slated to attend the Stallion Performance Test in 2008 to obtain full breeding approval.

Double Diamond (Nabab de Reve x Chin Chin), a seven-year-old Belgian Warmblood stallion pictured below, imported and owned by KingRidge Stables of King City, Ontario was also awarded a score of 7.55. Double Diamond has had a strong performance career with several wins in Canada's Jumper Development Series and the American equivalent, the Young Jumper Championships, under both Hugh Graham and Roberto Teran. Highlights of Double Diamond's assessment included 9s for jumping technique and scope. He will go on to seek full breeding approval through performance in sport.
Polyfax (Polydor x Grossadmiral), a fourteen-year-old Westphalian stallion imported and owned by KingRidge Stables is no stranger to either breeding or sport. Awarded a 7.33 overall score, his inclusion into the Canadian Warmblood Stud Book is a credential that allows more Canadian mare owners to benefit from his outstanding record. Not surprisingly, highlights for this stallion included 9s for jumping technique and scope. Application for full approval has been made, citing Grand Prix victories throughout North America under Hugh Graham and Roberto Teran.
Piper B (Ilian de Taute x Elute) was the final successful candidate with a score of 7.0. This attractive three-year-old is half sibling to the stallion Simply B, who was also bred by Beasley Farms and was licensed with Canadian Warmblood a few years earlier. Piper, who is now owned by Larry Crawford, produced 8s for chute jumping in both scope and technique. Still early in his sport career, he will seek full approval at a later time.
