Father Franklin: Champion stallion of international calibre. Franklin was KWPN Champion Stallion, winner of his stallion performance test in the Netherlands, finalist at the World Championships for young dressage horses and has successfully started competing at Prix St. Georges level. Many of his sons have been licensed, including our Reserve Champion Stallion Franklin’s Love, the KWPN Reserve Champion Kadans and Fendi, who was trained by Sönke Rothenberger. Out of the crowd of Franklin’s foals, the filly Faretti stands out. She was sold for 150,000 euros and was also named best DWB dressage filly in 2017. In 2018, her full sister Feretti II was sold for the top price of an auction. The title of „best filly“ already went to Franklin’s daughter Francisca Lightfoot in 2016.
His sire Ampère, KWPN Champion Stallion and champion of his stallion performance test, has produced over 60 stallions approved for breeding in the Netherlands and in Germany, including the Grand Prix winner ZINQ Abegglen FH/Marcus Hermes/GER, the Louisdor Prize finalist Aperol/Emma Kanerva/FIN, as well as First Ampère, who came sixth at the World Championships for young dressage horses. His 25 state premium mares are led by the Westphalian Champion Mare Anky and the mare Amicella, who produced our Westphalian Champion Stallion and German Champion Valverde. Numerous auction top prices have also been recorded.
The pedigree of Franklin shows highly interesting inbreeding to the stallion legends Ferro and Flemmingh.
The dam sire Ferro won three championship silver medals. With Coby van Baalen/NED, he was part of the Dutch team that was placed second at the 1998 World Equestrian Games in Rome/ITA, at the 1999 European Championships in Arnhem/NED and at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney/AUS. Furthermore, he was placed second in the World Cup final in ’s-Hertogenbosch/NED. He has produced 8 licensed stallions, including Rousseau, Negro, Metall and Rhodium. In the Netherlands, he received the predicate “keur”.
The maternal grand-sire Flemmingh is one of the most important dressage sires in the Netherlands and has produced the Grand Prix stallions Krack C/Anky van Grunsven/NED and Lingh/Edward Gal/NED. Heir to Ampère’s throne

Mother Avella: She is a very pretty dark brown mare with really good movement. All her foals look like her. 2017 she got a colt from San Amour. 2018 got she a blackbrown filly from San Amour – she is an image of her mother. Her Damline is very successfull at Oldenburg and she has some very good siblings. You don’t have to forget the old breeding line of Akzent II of her mother!
