Sire of Olympic, World Equestrian Games, and World Cup winner Valego, Negro has certainly confirmed his value as a sire of top dressage talent. Negro offspring have proven time and again that they have the talent for the FEI work and he is currently ranked 8th on the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings. An exceptional canter, active hindleg, and talent for collection are consistent across his offspring. Due to the exceptional quality of his offspring, Negro has been awarded the coveted Preferant status by the KWPN and was the 2017 KWPN Stallion of the Year.
Negro’s sire Ferro has been one of the most successful international dressage stallions in history, capturing the Team Silver at the World Equestrian Games, European Championships, and Olympics. Negro’s dam, the Keur mare Fewrie, is by the successful international dressage stallion Variant.
At his Stallion Performance Test Negro was Reserve Champion overall, earning exceptional praise for his canter which scored an 8.5. Negro won his KWPN Stallion Show competitions and was the highest placed Dutch horse at the 2001 FEI Young Horse Championships. By age 7 he was winning at Prix St. Georges and had a remarkable talent for all the Grand Prix work. Olympic rider Anne Van Olst still calls him ‘the best horse I ever rode.’
