Approval: KWPN, KWPN Erkend

Judgement ISF showed North American breeders what’s possible by becoming the first domestically bred winner of the $1,000,000 CN International at Spruce Meadows. That was just one of his many international show jumping victories. 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 he retired sound at age 18 he had nearly $1.5 million in prize money.

While Judgement ISF Crown is recognized for his outstanding international jumping talent, he’s leaving his legacy through impressive offspring. Year after year, his sons and daughters are receiving 1st Premium, North American championships and other accolades from the KWPN, and then continuing on to significant athletic careers as jumpers, eventers, hunters and dressage horses.

Bloodlines Details

Judgement ISF is sired by ISF’s legacy stallion Consul. Consul is recognized for producing outstanding athletes in jumping, dressage and eventing. He has consistently been a top-ranked sire for USEF, USDF and the United States Eventing Association.

Consul's sire is the Preferent Dutch stallion Nimmerdor, considered by many to be one of the sires of the century. Nimmerdor’s offspring have excelled at the highest levels in both jumping and dressage, with many Olympic medals in jumping. Consul was the first foal from the famous Prestatie mare Waloniki, who descends from the powerful Furioso II and Joost lines.
Judgement’s dam, Faletta, by Akteur, was a successful producer of sport horses. Her dam is by the famous Dutch Thoroughbred Lucky Boy Preferent, another prepotent sire.

 Stallion Characteristics

Judgement ISF was awarded the prestigious KWPN Crown predicate in recognition of his international success as a jumper. Only four other stallions hold this title in North America. Judgement is also the first American stallion to be approved by the KWPN based on his success as a performer and sire.
His rider for most of his spectacular victories and Nation’s Cup appearances, Beezie Madden, says that Judgement was a willing partner who could do just about anything. He is steady, dependable and a real gentleman, with excellent conformation for jumping.
What to Expect When You Breed to Judgement
Judgement’s offspring are usually big framed, long-lined horses with substance. He will add size and length of neck. He passes on a very powerful hind end, a good walk and excellent canter that covers lots of ground. Judgement adds good attitude and rideability. His offspring also inherit scope, quick reflexes, powerful takeoff and good technique in opening the haunches. His son Zenith ISF is successfully competing at the three-star level in eventing with Olympic gold medalist Leslie Law, who called him the best jumper he’d ever ridden.
Judgement does best with a mare that will add some “blood”. He can throw a heavy type, so he’s best suited to more modern mares or mares with Thoroughbred blood.
He never has chestnut foals, only bay, black, grey, or pinto depending on the mare.
Offspring Characteristics
  • Good attitude and rideability
  • Scopey jumpers
  • Long-lines and rectangular shape
  • Big framed, long-lined horses with substance 
Not Recommended for Mares With
  • Heavy body types
  • Old fashioned

Zenith ISF Wins Poplar Place Advanced

April 10, 2012

March 2012
Leslie Law and Zenith ISF continue to amaze as they work their way up the levels. In their third Advanced outing they won at Ploplar Place with a score of 53.80 [16 XC time and 38.70 dressage].

Here's what Leslie has to say: "Poplar proved to be quite the event for us all. Most newsworthy was the fact that Zenith ISF had his first big advanced win in what was only his third event at the level. He is an outstanding horse and has been such a Cinderella story for us thus far. We are excited to see how he handles the CIC *** at the Fork in a few weeks!"

The Fork proved to be less successful in dressage, although the pair went clear in the XC round.  Stay tuned for more!
