OBERON


1996, 16.3 h.h., dark bay Dutch Warmblood Stallion
Approved Canadian Warmblood

From an exceptional pedigree this tall, elegant young stallion is showing the promise of his heritage. His sire is the approved Dutch Warmblood stallion Idocus - Grand Champion of the 100 day Stallion Performance Test in 1993 in the USA. At his performance test Idocus earned good marks for temperament, gaits, trainability, jumping & his capacity to work. Then in 2000, Idocus was approved by the KWPN in Holland and completed his performance test in February 2001. Idocus currently competes at the FEI levels of Dressage and was competing in Europe in 2001 with good placings at the stallion show at Zwolle in Holland. Idocus remained in Holland to further his competition and training and prepare for the 2004 Olympics and is now back in the USA.


Oberon's dam Wirona, is an imported Ster mare by the preferent Dutch stallion Kristal, a highly regarded sire of dressage horses.

Oberon aquitted himself well at the 2000 Stallion Performance Test earning good marks for his Character, Temperament, Willingness to work, gaits and rideability from the training master and judges with a '9' for his Constitution. Easy to handle and keen to work, he demonstrated good paces earning a 5th place overall for his dressage with above average marks in all paces especially his walk - this from a growthy young horse only started in the spring of 2000. Dressage Index of: 108.54 Oberon's elegant exterior and expressive paces catch people's attention when he enters the ring.

His first foal crop arrived in 2001 and the large 2002 foal crop was exceptional. Check out the pictures of Unity. Congratulations to her breeder, Su Bright, on their Reserve Championship in the 2001 Foal Futurity! Congratulations again for Su Bright, who was also very successful in 2003, with a clear win for her filly out of Phaedra (by Final Pool) in the 2003 B.C. Foal Futurity.

In 2005, Oberon competed in dressage and combined training with rider Twyla Tolmie, who trains under Olympian Chelan Kozak. We invite you to share the promise of this legacy with this up and coming young stallion.
