Chippendale x Nourejev x Contango

Consigned to the Fall Classic Sale Lot 2



Knight N Dale is a lovely young prospect who is nicely started under saddle and showing good basic gaits and an aptitude for jumping. She is still growing and should mature in the 16-16.1hh range. She has a good temperament and is easy to handle. She is willing to do her job, has a nice flatter knee for the hunter ring, and jumps in very correct form. She is just getting started over fences and will be jumping courses by sale date. Knight N Dale is safe enough for an intermediate rider to continue her training in a program.

Knight N Dale's sire Chippendale is a lovely modern type Grand Prix dressage stallion is making a name for himself in the small-tour dressage ring and shows all of the ability to become a top Grand Prix horse. A 50% share of Chippendale was sold for 1.5 Mil Euro when he was just a 7-year-old with the eye toward the Olympic games. He was the champion of the 2012 stallion competition and has presented a very uniform group of foals to the KWPN where he was praised for their uphill movement and good self-carriage. He is by Lord Leatherdale, who is consistently producing excellent dressage horses. On his dam side, Chippendale goes back to the famous Negro. His dam Ti Amo is a full sister to French Internation Grand Prix horse, Ushie, ridden by Isabelle Herter.

Knight N Dale's dam Galiano Loma is a large-framed, longer-lined mare who is amateur ridden. She has good work ethic and tries hard to please her rider both on the flat and over fences. Her sire Nourejev competed Grand Prix dressage, as did his sire Cocktail, who also sired the great dressage stallion Jazz. Her dam Badette produced many talented offpspring that went on to compete at Grand Prix and PSG, as well as 1.20m jumpers.
