Baron Van Gogh is by Europe’s top jumper producer “Burggraaf” (Landgraf x Cor de la Bryere), a Holsteiner who is a Preferent accredited top jumper stallion for the KWPN. By percentage Burggraaf sired more GP offspring than any other stallion in Europe. Baron Van Gogh’s dam is the double talented Rigoletto (Ramses)prestatie mare “Viola” who showed at the highest national levels in jumping as well as PSG dressage in Holland. 9 out of 11 of Viola’s offspring have shown at international levels, and 2 of them in the Pan Am Games. Baron Van Gogh is her last foal.
Baron Van Gogh finished his 30 day performance test as the youngest stallion and with the highest jumping score of all participants. His foals can now be registered with BWP and RPSI registries. In 2009 Baron Van Gogh will finish his performance requirements and be presented for Oldenburg and Hanoverian approvals. Baron van Gogh has produced nearly eighty nice offspring and they show that his gorgeous head and strong hind-end are traits he passes on consistently. All indications are that a good number of them are growing up to be nice to handle, trainable, talented hunters and jumpers considering their quality, the bloodlines and that Baron Van Gogh’s Saint-like character allows him to be handled and ridden by small women and to be fed and pet on the nose by a toddler daily.
