Montserrat is by Metternich,
publicly known as the best son by Matcho x. Metternich is
extremely versatile for both Dressage and Jumping, and prepotent to pass down the traits.
Montserrat's half brother Multistar,
the Reserve Champion at his stallion licensing in 1999, demonstrating
the multi-talents in this line. Montserrat's dam-sire Abajo is also the dam-sire of Verden Licensing
Champion William's Gold and approved stallion Pik L, now standing in the US and Pan Am Game
Montserrat is the Champion
at his stallion licensing in Adelheidsdorf. In the
same performance test group, even with 5 points deduction because he
was started late, Montserrat beat his Verden Licensing Reserve
Champion brother Multistar. He also scored higher than two other
popular stallions that currently stand in the US, and two other stallions
taken by Celle State Stud that year. Only 3 years after his licensing, he is already schooled to S level dressage by a
young trainer, Joerg Dietrich.
Montserrat has a strong
frame; he is leggy yet very compactly coupled overall. He has an
face with soft eyes. His specific conformation strengths include
his big sloping shoulder, good saddle position, and long forearms,
strong gaskins and well formed and low set hocks. All of them
are the TB/AA traits desired by the WB breed associations. He
will be very suitable to cross with warmbloods as well as
Thoroughbreds to add/or preserve movements and produce modern type dressage horses.
We consider him a superb outcross choice for D-/F-/R-/W-lines for
Because of his jumping talent, we expect him to produce hunter/jumper
babies as well.
