Not in recent history has a horse caused such a stir…….
re: Aachen – “newcomers among the horses, first comes an extraordinarily beautiful Dutch, 11 year old stallion named Olympic Ferro,…I had the pleasure to sit next to Jo Hinnemann during the Musical Freestyle and both of us got tears in our eyes. It was really beautiful.” Major Anders Lindgren
“All eyes were focused on van Baalen and Olympic Ferro, the Dutch sensations at Aachen….his enormous expression in the difficult parts of the test and his excellent extended walk –rarely seen in Grand Prix horses” Joca van der Veen.
“We saw some interesting new faces (at Aachen), especially Olympic Ferro…for the future he will be a highlight on the dressage scene….He was the talking point of the show”. Bernadette Faurie
Olympic Ferro, the Dutch sensation at Aachen, competed at the 2000 Olympics and assisted his team in achieving a team silver medal, with an individual score of 74.92%. As a three-year-old he was champion of his performance test at Ermelo, where he achieved the outstanding results of 6.5–walk, 8.5–trot and 8.5 canter. His sire Ulft, is a son of the great Le Mexico, who is listed 10th on the jumping index with 142 points. Le Mexico carries Furioso xx blood, which brings value to any pedigree. Ferro’s dam, Brenda, is a daughter of the Holsteiner, Farn, who is listed sixth on the jumping index with 146 points. Farn’s son Nimmerdor, is listed second on the jumping index with 155 points. Olympic Ferro sired the champion of the three-year-old stallions at s’Hertogenbosch in 2000, and has nine young stallions in the second round there in 2001. The champion three year old mare at Ermelo in 2000 was an Olympic Ferro daughter. Much is expected of this charming, talented black stallion who achieved the title of “Keur” in 2000. He can be relied upon to produce beautiful, typy, talented offspring of the highest quality. Fantastic toplines and an elegant look characterize his get. In addition to their dressage excellence, Olympic Ferro’s offspring also make good jumpers. Olympic Ferro is #1 on the BN World Stallion Rankings for dressage and is the top stallion and pride of the Netherlands, affectionately known as the “Black Pearl.” In 2002 Olympic Ferro once again had the highest scores on the Dutch Olympic team.
