Profile

  • The KWPN stallion Kingston has come to Denmark, bringing along fresh bloodlines that are not very common in dressage horse breeding. His eligibility as a breeding stallion, however, lies primarily in his talent as a dressage horse.

  • He was licensed by the KWPN in 2018 and passed the KWPN's 50-day test in Ermelo the same year with an excellent result, securing him second place in dressage. His total score of 85.5 points included the following marks: walk (2x) 8.5, trot (2x) 8.5, canter (2x) 8.5, suppleness 8.5, balance and self-carriage 8.5, rideability 9, potential as a dressage horse 8.5.

    Statement from the 50-day trial in Ermelo

    Kingston is an honest and reliable stallion with much progress and a very good attitude. The stallion is very cooperative and responds well to the rider's aids. The walk has a clear beat, it is active and ground-covering. In trot the stallion has good mechanics and extension with active, engaged hindquarters and carriage. Canter is powerful, uphill, ground-covering and with good impulsion. Kingston moves with great agility and extremely good carriage and balance. Kingston possesses a great deal of talent as a dressage horse and is a pleasure to ride.

  • Kingston was approved for Danish Warmblood at Vilhelmsborg in April 2019 with an excellent evaluation, and Blue Hors' breeding manager Martin Klavsen cannot hide his enthusiasm for Kingston, whom he describes as a good representative of the Totilas bloodline, which is characterised by a very high level of rideability.

    Kingston is one of the more long-legged and large-framed stallions of the Totilas line. It is a very interesting bloodline and usually a guarantee of willingness to work and rideability, which also describes Kingston", says MartinKingston has a super personality; he is easy to handle and very sociable, and he will respond to the lightest aids. The Dutch horses may not have a reputation for being the easiest, but Kingston is really sweet and sociable, but he also has no Jazz-blood in him nor other bloodlines known for hot temper.

  • As a 5-year old, Kingston scored a total of 95.40 points at the Danish Riding Federation's Young Horse Dressage Championship Qualifier with the marks 9 for walk, 9.2 for canter, 9.5 for ridability and capacity and 10 for trot! Kingston's rider Nanna Skodborg Merrald says about the stallion:

    - Kingston is a very intelligent horse with a positive attitude. Kingston's canter and walk are his highlights right now, but his trot will be absolutely spectacular in the future when strengthened and developed.

Pedigree Performance

  • Kingston is by Totilas-son Glock's Toto Jr., Edward Gal's great hope for the future. In their heyday, Edward Gal and Totilas were invincible in international dressage and winners of both the European Championships and the WEG. Totilas sired Glock's Toto Jr. who won the Pavo Cup as a 5-year-old and who sired three sons, including Kingston, in his first breeding year.

  • Kingston's dam is the elite mare Arina by the Cabochon-son Turbo Magic, who has had a dressage career in the United States. Arina is dam to the mare Erina by Houston, who competes at Prix St. Georges level. A son of Arina's sister Elsarina recently passed selection for KWPN licensing. Kingston's granddam Sarina is dam to AES-licensed stallion Griffin by United as well as several other sport horses. The damline has also produced numerous competition horses, including Lilliane, Picarlo, Iliane, Elian and Gladstone.

  • Influential producers of riding horses like Flemmingh and Nabuur are found in the third and fourth generations.

Characteristics

  • Kingston is colour-tested, and is only able to pass on the genes for bay/black-coloured offspring
  • The KWPN's additional assessment on Kingston's breeding:

    - Kingston is expected to provide the dressage horse breeding with qualities such as conformation, expression, quality of movement, rideability and a good work attitude.

Offspring

  • Kingston passes on his own good conformation and super performance along with a very good canter. His unique lineage allows him to be combined with virtually any bloodline.

    - I suspect that Kingston will positively affect the ridability on his offspring, as well as pass on his nice front. He has a lot of talent, and ability to collect himself, and he will without a doubt be a star for the collected work, says Martin Klavsen. 

  • Kingston's offspring includes a son sold for 36.000 € among the most expensive colts at the renowned Borculo auction 2019 in Holland. His offspring has been some of the postitively highlighted foals at several foal shows and auctions, e.g. his son, Vestermarkens Kenzo, who was sold for 35.000 € at the Danish Warmblood's fall foal auction at Blue Hors in 2020.
