You are right about Gallarius - we bred to him - he was in the GP jumpers then - switched to Dressage with Michael Barisone riding. I know he went PSG while here in NJ.
I loff my Olivier colt from this year. He's gorgeous!
Our stallion Agincourt, tested in '92, became a GP jumper with Hap Hansen, retired from show jumping at 13. Agincourt will compete at PSG this year having competed successfully (scores in the mid-60's) at 4th level.
Great idea to compile a list of those US tested stallions that have gone on to become successful performance horses. This is the kind of information that should be available to mare owners.
Special Memories competed grand prix jumpers, including placing in FEI World cup qualifiers.
Thanks once again guys... great info...
I think I've updated the OP with everything so far. And, I found info about the stallions scores and test dates and added that too.

Can you tell me more about Special Memories and his breeding please. I'm drawing a blank!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif
Thanks for bringing that up Bernie, I couldn’t find him. Jackie???
Special Memories is by Abdullah out of kluwall xx (dam of touch of class). I think he did the 100 DT in 1990 when it was in california. Unfortunately he was sick out there, but he still managed to pass!
Thank you Jackie… I updated the OP…
btw, where is he now? And is it possible he was also known under a different name?
Here is the website for Special Memories
Touch wood he is alive, well and still very sound in Md.
You can see him at www.touchstonevalleyfarm.com
Thanks for asking!
I also think the list might be worth mentioning the stallions that were tested and went on to have amazing hunter careers...
Jupiter is the obvious one that comes to mind...
Andrea... very good idea... but can you (or anyone) tell me what Hunter requirements would (if completed) earn a stallion his lifetime breeding license with a WB registry. I am not familiar with Hunters, I know that the Dutch have a Hunter "program" (or they are about to launch one), and I think Oldenburg North American has at least one stallion who earned a life time breeding license because of his Hunter Division record. But I am not familiar with the requirements.
And Jackie and Cathy... thanks for the link http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif.
Excellent idea. Where will this list be kept and updaTED FOR accuracy?
Here is hunter info from ISR/OLDNA website:
Hunter stallions may receive a Lifetime Breeding License on a case by case basis if they have superior show records (e.g. won "regular" or "2nd year" National Year End Awards or Championships).
I don't know what the Dutch are doing with their new Hunter book...and not sure which if any of the others allow hunter records for performance requirements.
This thread is about data on stallions who went through the 100DT and then went on to actually have an FEI career (and therefore would have also actually earned a lifetime breeding license through performance in the upper levels of sport). So, if there are stallions who went through the 100DT and earned the Hunter equivalent of the FEI level of Hunters, let’s add them too *
*maybe with an asterisk explanation
I think we should each keep a copy of this list and update it from time to time… One huge advantage of posting it is that we get input about stallions we seldom hear of.. brilliant competitors who, for what ever reason, seem to fall off the radar screen.
Maronjo - winner of the 1987 NovemberHill test 138.06 overall, 133.25 dressage, 136.91 jumping.
Palladium - 1991 November Hill, 106.99 overall, 98.45 dressage, 117.48 jumping. Competed GP jumping
Almost forget FLORIAN!!!!! Florian is the sire of CALEB!! Florian was in the 1986 stallion testing at Commonwealth Park in Virginia. 114.30 points and was 5/12. Florian is winning in Grand Prix Dressage. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif Think I should mention that Florian's owner told me she sent him to the 100 Day Test UNBROKEN!!! He still came out 5/12!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif
While I'm honored that Pikör is on the list I need to make sure everyone understands that he did not complete the test: he was given a medical excuse on the final days of testing. Also, although schooling GP he died before we were able to show him at that level. Thus the highest level he competed was I-1.
He did the testing at November Hill in 1991 - the same year as Rio Grande, Bordeaux, Gold Luck, Palladium, Wendesohn and a little gray stallion named Marquee... who I believe went on to compete thru Preliminary level in eventing. Although Marquee was only 3 years old and the youngest horse at the test he finished a repectable 5th, if my memory serves me correctly.
Actually, the BWP also has instituted a program that permits stallions to fulfill their performance requirements as a hunter. The requirements will be introduced in 2005. However, the stallions still need to present on the triangle and freejump the same gymnastics as the "traditional" stallion candidates for their approval and are judged by Belgian inspectors.
Here is an example of the hunter requirements:
In order to satisfy performance requirements, horses must compete in at least 4 “A” rated competitions and finish in the top 50% of
their Zone – as reported by the USEF.
3 year olds: Fence heights at least 3’ — for example: Pre-green hunter
4 year olds: Fence heights at least 3’3”— for example: High Pre-Green (3’3”) or Adult/Amateur
and so on......
