Richard (European Show Name: Ravanelli / US Show Name: Decadent) is a 17hh black imported KWPN stallion with a strong sport horse pedigree from both parents. Richard is the son of Kroongraaf whose sire, Burggraaf is considered one of the most successful sires. Burggraaf, himself, jumped at the international level under Roelof Bril. Richard's dam sire, Rianne, can be considered as one of the best Dutch dams ever. She is the full sister of the international jumping horse, Optiebeurs Surprise under Rob Ehrens and in combination with four different stallions she produced no less than three international showjumping horses and two licensed stallions, Kroongraaf and Candy Surprise (Candy Boy). Rianne is the dam of Katie Prudent's great grand-prix mare, Belladonna.
Richard's dam, Cendy comes from the Dutch mare line, fokfamilie 69, which has produced several licensed stallions and numerous horses successful in sport. She is by the important stallion, Le Mexico who produced the approved stallions Silvano, Ulft, Zelhem, Zonneglans, Astronaut and Expert. Le Mexico also produced numerous international showjumpers and dressage competitors. She, herself, is the 3/4 sibling to the great stallion, Ulft.
Richard has been successfully shown in both the Hunter Ring and the Jumper Ring including the Grand Prix level in the US. He has grand champion wins on the AA circuit in both Green Conformation Hunter and Regular Working Hunter. Richard was also shown in Holland in the Jumper Ring prior to his importation to the US in 2004. He was the first stallion approved under the BWP H-Label and should provide breeders a great opportunity to breed for both hunter and jumper style offspring. He crosses well with both TB and WB mares alike.
From Richard's first and only crop in Holland (2004) he has produced offspring who are showing in eventing, dressage and through the 1.3 meter jumpers, in eventing and in dressage. His first USA crop were born in 2008. His 2012 colt, Alla'Mour was 1st in the USDF/Adequan All Breeds Current Year Colts/Geldings (Oldenburg NA).
