Popeye’s sire competed in the Bundeschampionat for dressage ponies three times and has sired a number of approved sons and several highly decorated mares. Popeye’s dam is a Westphalian breeding federation show winner and received her States Premium status. She has produced four States Premium daughters in addition to Popeye. Popeye’s grandsire, Night Star I, won his licensing and placed second at the Bundeschampionat for show jumping ponies in 1987.
Popeye finished fourth overall at his 30-Day test in Germany with an 8.3 overall. His walk and character were highlights, each receiving scores of 9 or higher. In his first year in the US, Popeye was the Reserve Champion of the USDF East Coast Stallion Final at Dressage at Devon. Popeye has shown through Fourth Level dressage with scores into the 70’s and was the 2011 Reserve Champion at Fourth Level at the BLM Finals. To showcase his versatility, Popeye began eventing in the fall of 2012. He has been successful up to Training Level, competing with two different riders and often finishing on his dressage score.
Popeye has sired many Premium offspring and two licensed stallions. His offspring are easy to start and are winning under saddle in dressage, hunters, and eventing. A few highlights for Popeye’s offspring during the 2018 show season include Picabo Rain named Champion of the Pre-Green Ponies at the Vermont Summer Special, Pixar finishing as Reserve Champion of the Pony Stallion Championship of Dressage at Devon, and Popgun finishing 6th in USDF Region 4 Championship for Adult Amateur Second Level. Popeye is a wonderful choice for pony breeders as well as breeders looking to downsize their larger mares.
