Black bay Trakehner Stallion, 16.2h
1993 - 2018
On the sire's side, Val carries Pepel's bloodlines, featuring Tempelhüter and Dampfross, who can be traced back to the 17th century. Pepel took spectators' hearts in the Munich Olympic Games where he won the Gold Medal in Dressage. Four years later he won the Silver Medal in the Mexico Olympic Games.
On his dam's side, Topkij, a chief breeding stallion at the Kirow Stud Farm in Russia, carries valuable blood from both his dam and sire. Topkij, at the age of 7, won the Nation's Cup in Show Jumping. His remarkable jumping ability and movement have carried through to his offspring, leading more than 25 Champion standings in both the dressage and jumping disciplines.
Val inherited the desire and ease with which he jumps and his effortless yet powerful movement from his ancestors. His attractive top line features a long neck and perfect saddle position. Careful front legs and powerful bascule are some of the desired features of a successful show jumper. He has also inherited 3 exceptional gaits including a remarkable floating trot, giving his offspring great dressage potential. These traits, along with a beautifully chiseled face with kind, expressive eyes and an elegant dark bay colour have consistently been passed down to his progeny. His offspring keeps winning breeders awards: for example: 2007 American Warmblood - Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals. This stallions pedigree is a breeders dream.
