A talented jumper can also be wonderful to ride! Dexter R showed impressive talent as a show jumper in the KWPN performance test (8.5 for reflexes, 8 for form, 9 for scope, 8.5 for talent) and earned high scores for rideability (8.5 for the canter and 8.5 for rideability and willingness). At the 2011 KWPN Stallion Show, this “jumping machine” was declared the Reserve Champion. He was subsequently the Champion of his performance test.
His huge scope, fantastic rideability and excellent conformation make Dexter R a very complete stallion who can improve jumper breeding across the board. With his stature and good front end, Dexter R is especially suited for improving the conformation of jumper mares. In 2012, his first filly Hamira (ds. Mermus R) finished as Reserve Champion at the Central Keuring in Overijssel.
Dexter R is a son of the preferent stallion Namelus R. Dexter R’s grandsire Contender, a foundation stallion in Holstein, produced numerous successful show jumpers and approved stallions. A full sister to Dexter R, the elite mare B. Rubertha 11, earned the second highest score in the 2011 mare test: 88 points. Under the name Beau Rubertha R, she is already excelling in international young horse classes under Wim SchrÃ¶der.
Dexter R’s granddam H.Ruberth 14 prestatie is a full sister of the world-renowned grand prix stallion VIP (Joost x Abgar xx). She produced four jumpers which competed at the national and international levels. Her dam Rubertha ster prestatie, who is the dam of VIP, also produced Z- and ZZ-level show jumpers. Dexter R’s pedigree combines the Rubertha-line of international jumpers such as Rubert R, Balaboeska R, and Royal Beach Cupido with another top line from the Roelofs philosophy; and Dexter R’s sire Namelus R contributes the exceptional genes of the Melusienas (breeding family 154).
Dexter R has now also sired a KWPN Stallion Show Reserve Champion in I.Wellie (Dexter R x Mermus R), pictured below. A phenomenal sire in the making, Dexter R is a real investment in your breeding programme.
