Negro’s sire Ferro was one of the most successful international dressage stallions in history, capturing the Team Silver at the World Equestrian Games, European Championships, and Olympics. Negro’s dam, the Keur mare Fewrie, is by the successful international dressage stallion Variant.
At his Stallion Performance Test Negro was Reserve Champion overall, earning exceptional praise for his canter which scored an 8.5. Negro won his KWPN Stallion Show competitions and was the highest placed Dutch horse at the 2001 FEI Young Horse Championships. By age 7 he was winning at Prix St. Georges and had a remarkable talent for all the Grand Prix work. Olympic rider Anne Van Olst calls him ‘the best horse I ever rode’ and the impact of his influence as both a sire and damsire has built the foundation for the success of Van Olst Horses in both breeding and international sport.
Sire of Olympic, World Equestrian Games, and World Cup winner Valego; as well as WBFSH 6 & 7-Year Old World Champion Kjento, Negro has repeatedly confirmed his value as a sire of top dressage talent. Negro offspring have proven time and again they have the talent for the FEI work and are winning at the FEI levels with professionals, amateurs, and young riders. An exceptional canter, active hindleg, and talent for collection are consistent across his offspring. Due to the world-class quality of his offspring, Negro has been awarded the coveted Preferant status by the KWPN and was the 2017 KWPN Stallion of the Year.
