The KWPN (Royal Warmblood Studbook of the Netherlands) is a breed registry consisting of an official list of mares and stallions that have successfully fulfilled the Dutch Warmblood breed requirements.


The Dutch Warmblood is one of the most successful horses developed in postwar Europe, known for its athleticism and even temperament. In 2010 the KWPN registry was ranked number one in both jumping (by the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses) and dressage (by the Fédération Equestre Internationale).


Amadeus was the champion of his Approvals in 1977, and lived at the world famous Horstein stud. He was an excellent dressage competitor with an outstanding quiet temperament and was also used as the riding horse of the farm owner’s family. 


Amadeus was a “mare producer”. He had a great number of excellent daughters, such as Eliza V who received marks of 9, 8, 8, 10, 9. His most famous daughter is the mare Freundin, who is the dam of 2 champion stallions Farinelli (1996) and Freudenfest (1999), both by Tolstoi. 


AMADEUS‘s sire is the outstanding performance stallion KASSIBER. He stood at the Langels’ Haemelschenburg Stud after being selected as a Class 1 stallion at his Approvals, and being Class 1 at his stallion Performance Test. After producing some excellent horses in Germany, he was sold to Australia, where he was Australian Event Champion in 1983.

KASSIBER‘s sire is the immortal Trakehner stallion IBIKUS.

Ibikus was renowned for passing on his amazing gaits and impeccable movements. Ibikus was four times winner of the German riding horse championship, and 1st at his stallion performance test.


He was successful in dressage competitions up to the FEI level. In 1976 Ibikus was sold to Denmark as an improver for the Danish warmblood and had a huge impact there. 


Ibikus is the sire of 12 approved sons. Known as a “marker” stallion, Ibikus genetic traits are responsible for the performance capabilities of sport horses all over Europe.
