Profile

1984 - 2016

Consul was a fantastic athlete, competing in show jumping in the Netherlands and transitioning to dressage upon his importation to the U.S.A. He won 22 classes at Fourth Level, and with his flamboyant markings, was one of the most recognizable horses in the show ring. As a sire, he continues to produce remarkable athletes for every discipline. The international show jumper Judgement ISF, Crown, and the four-star eventer Critical Decision, are just two of his top offspring. Consul’s daughter, Hivona, Keur, was a Produce of Dam winner at Dressage at Devon, and an exceptional broodmare.

Career

Consul was a winning showjumper in the Netherlands. Once in the U.S.A., Consul turned to dressage. He racked up an impressive 22 wins at Fourth Level. Consul was a kind-hearted, sweet stallion. He loved attention and begged for treats if he thought you might have something for him. He was always easy to handle and happy at work.

Winning Offspring

Consul was a prepotent sire and grandsire, producing talented jumpers and dressage horses, along with top eventers, hunters and equitation mounts. His most well-known son is Judgement ISF, Crown. Judgement had many international victories, including the $1,000,000 CN International at Spruce Meadows. He represented the USA on 10 Nation’s Cup teams, including the gold medal winning team at CSIO La Baule in 2008 and Hickstead in 2007. He also earned the National Champion title at Spruce Meadows on four occasions. When Judgement retired sound at age 18, he had nearly $1.5 million in prize money. Another Consul son, Critical Decision, finished third in the Rolex **** Three-Day-Event.

What to Expect When You Breed to Consul

Consul offspring are happy and very brave. They are the first to come to the fence to check out visitors and explore new things. Consul does throw white, and has foals that are born dark brown/ black, as well as beautiful chestnut. They are trainable, progress quickly and desire the opportunity to learn new things.

Like their father, Consul’s babies are successful in dressage and jumping. They have talent for jumping big fences in a brave manner, but they also have the style it takes to win on the A circuit in the hunters. Consul has produced two internationally ranked eventers, as well as many Grand Prix dressage competitors.
