ISF Historic Rankings in 2012 KWPN Breeding Values

  • March 19, 2012

Each year the KWPN (Royal Dutch Warmblood Studbook) collects and analyzes extensive performance and health data for each Approved stallion and their offspring, and produces a report—the KWPN Breeding Values. This invaluable information is an assessment of genetic ability and statistics with rankings provided for both dressage and jumpers, which can then be used by breeders to make informed decisions.

This data is among the most comprehensive within the warmblood industry and has helped make the KWPN one of the consistently top-ranked WBFSH studbooks. In 2012, Iron Spring Farm stallions’ had historic rankings, including Contango Preferent, Sir Sinclair and UB40. In addition, their sires, grandsires and offspring were also highly rated.

North American breeders have easy access to some of the world’s best bloodlines that are consistently influencing the modern sport horse.

Contango was ranked second among 78 stallions with offspring 10 years and older competing in dressage. He was in excellent company; Jazz finished first, UB40’s sire Olivi was third, with Flemmingh, the damsire of Sir Sinclair, in the 49th position.
