Each Start a Win!
Arango is the shooting-star of the year 2015 at the Krüsterhof stallion
The charming black colt is a sport horse through and through and proves
to be of best under-saddle quality every day.
Steffi decided to show him "carefully dosed, only!" at age three last year.
So our horse rider combination went to compete in three riding horse classes last year
and Arango won them all in the most superior manner.
Each start a win and every win came with "8s" and "9s" only, for all
Usually, it is the flamboyant canter that earns Arango the highest
marks. However, we believe his strength lies in his walk.
Arango is what we consider a "complete horse", meaning
he shows three very good gaits, including a rock solid walk.
In order to develop a future dressage sport horse, we must focus on a
super quality walk and we demand no lesser deal of any breeding
stallion, too. Arango's walk is certainly positively correlated to an
evenly well-balanced mind. Work ethic and behavior of our black beauty
In autumn last year, Arango completed his 30-day stallion performance
test in Schlieckau with 8s and 9s in all issues, yet again.
Early this year, as a four year old, Arango was shown in a young
dressage horse class at A-level for 4 and 5 year old horses. Reason was
to maintain the permanent breeding approval at 4, following the 30-day
test at age three. The current reforms of the German stallion performance
system requires a score of 7.5 or better for any 4 year-old stallion in
2016 at A-level.
In order to secure the highest flexibility and no stress for the coming
breeding and horse show season in spring and summer, we decided to show
Arango early in the year, counting on the young stallion to be able to
cope at highest level amongst elder competition and still do
better than 7.5.
Arango did not disappoint us. He earned an impressive 8.2 and ranked
second in his first A-level dressage horse class. On top of that, he was
the youngest horse in the award ceremony amongst all 5-year olds.
Arango is a real champion prospect and the plan is to qualify him for
the Bundeschampionship in Warendorf in September.
He competed in one additional 4-year old riding horse class in early March
of this year and came home as the superior winner, yet another time. This
time it was the trot that gained him the "9" amongst all other 8 and
At first sight you can recognize Arango as a son of Apache. Face, eyes,
neck set, topline and even mechanics - Arango has Apache written all over
Apache is the most successful young stallion in the Netherlands these
days, both with respect to sport and breeding.
He was appointed to the Olympic dressage squad of the Netherlands as one
of the youngest horses in November last year, and chances are high we
will see him in Rio. At the same time, Apache has developed to become the
most popular breeding stallion in the Netherlands. Following eleven
young sons to be entered into the KWPN licensing early last year 2015, he
was represented by 21 young colts at this years' stallion
licensing in s'Hertogenbosch in February 2016!
Apache was Vice-Champion at the 2010 KWPN stallion licensing himself,
again Vice-Champion at the PAVO Cup in 2011 and outstanding Champion at the
PAVO Cup in 2012, in which he entered as the greatly celebrated
favorite of the audience.
At the same time he started his promising career as a breeding stallion.
His first crop labeled him as a desirable "foal maker". Meanwhile,
his eldest kids have proved their quality under saddle in the
Netherlands as well as in Germany.
Arango most certainly is one the most promising sons of Apache.
Apache's sire, UB 40, is a grandson of the meaningful Jazz, who has become
the most influential stamp stallion of present Dutch sporthorse
breeding. UB 40 was sold to the US at a young age where he sired some
promising youngsters currently under saddle. Apache's mother, Tolanda, is
a daughter of the evenly meaningful stamp stallion Krack C, who was
internationally successful at Grand Prix level with Anky van Grunsven,
just like Jazz. Inspekteur is yet another internationally successful
stallion to be found at the third generation in Apache's pedigree.
Arango's damline will surely inspire you!
His mother is no less than the full sister of Fürst Piccolo, who was one
of the most popular breeding stallions at the Warendorf State Stud up
until his early death in 2014. The damline of Fürst Piccolo (and Arango)
is nourished not far from here at Johannes Baumeister's farm in
Kranenburg. Arango is already the sixth licensed colt Johannes has bred out
of this very mare family in near generations, amongst them three
Next to the elder two premium stallions, Fürst Piccolo (by Fidermark), and
Brioni Pur (by Belissimo), it was Fürst Fohlenhof (by Fidertanz), who
made the headlines recently when he became Bundeschampion in 2013 and
Vice-Bundeschampion in 2014.
Arango's dam, Fia Mara, was the regional champion mare in Kleve in 2010
scoring 9-8-8-8-8 at her mare inspection. She won the mare performance
test in Wickrath proving her quality under saddle, too, scoring 8.28.
Fia Mara also became the best three year-old mare at the Youngster Meeting
in Mönchengladbach later that year. Thereafter, she became part of Joahnnes'
broodmare herd in Kranenburg. Fia Mara delivered her first licensed son
We are looking forward to Arango's first foals on the ground this year
